All Star Sports BIrthday Party

We celebrated my son Cayden’s 8th birthday with an All Star Sports Theme party. He loves sports so this was the perfect theme for him. As I began to design and plan this party to be perfect for him I gathered a bunch of my favorite party ideas from Pinterest. I also contacted my favorite graphic designer and had Lauren Haddox Design create printables to tie the party theme together and personalize it.  I decided to use the colors red, green, blue, orange and accent with black & white stripes. I love incorporating real props so I gathered baseballs, footballs, basketballs and footballs from around our house and from neighbors. A good friend of ours works at a sports facility and he let us borrow so many sports items to add to the party. We were so grateful for him because it truly added to the entire party. Some of the decorations I made were the tissue tassel poms, the felt football field with iron on numbers and thick white ribbon for the yard line. My husband built the football post out of PVC pipes. It was another easy DIY project. We borrowed an old fashion hotdog stand and served stadium/ballpark food. For the dessert table I made sugar cookies, Oreo pops, cake pops, cupcakes, rice crispy treat pops, and chocolate covered strawberries.  I decorated all of them with the sports theme. We had the party at gymnasium where my husband coordinated sports during the party. The boys all had a BALL!
