Baseball may be “America’s Pastime,” and football is the most popular sport when it comes to TV ratings, and basketball and hockey have their superfans as well, but the most popular sport with kids is definitely soccer! Most kids play soccer in elementary school, and for some, they never seem to outgrow it.
Here at BirthdayExpress, we have two great new Soccer themes for the birthday boy or girl who loves soccer more than anything else, including one that’s completely customizable to show off your little Premier League All-Star!
In This Post:
We’ve got everything you need to set the table for your child’s party, with plates, cups and napkins for everybody, as well as a few extra surprises!
Get everything you see here in our Soccer Express Value Party Pack.
Here you can see these great party supplies in action, featuring this green grass printed plastic tablecover, this sports field hallway runner re-purposed into a tablerunner, and everybody’s favorite birthday fashion accessory, party cone hats!
Next up we’ve got a great little DIY project for you!
These cutlery packets are made by folding napkins into thirds, securing them with black ribbon, and adding a stick of green-apple-flavored rock candy. To keep with the green theme, we also have watermelon!
When decorating for a party, don’t forget the essentials.
We all know every party needs balloons!
Check out our great Balloon Bouquet, as well as life-like foil balloons and latex balloons that perfectly match the colors of the theme.
If you really love circular party decorations, we’ve got great options for you:
Hang these soccer ball paper lanterns from the ceiling and really add some serious verticality to your party decoration scheme.
Now if you’re looking for decorations that won’t deflate over time, some decor with a little more permanence, might we suggest this next item?
For the real soccer all-star in your house, check out these huge removable wall decals! After the party is over, you can take them down from the living room and put them up in the birthday kid’s room, for them to enjoy all year long!
For a perfect personalized touch, consider this huge vinyl birthday banner! It comes in three sizes, and there’s another version where you can add a photo of your child!
Food & Favors
When putting together your menu and food table for the party, here are a few ideas you might consider.
We transformed these traditional sports drinks by wrapping them in a layer of scrapbook paper from the craft store and a layer of this soccer ball party tape, not to mention adding one of these fun soccer ball whistles.
We have these wonderful favor boxes with great prizes and treats for your party guests, sure to send them home happy!
With our Soccer Party supplies, your little guy or girl will feel like the World Cup Champion of birthdays!
Personalized Soccer Party
Here you can see an alternate take on how to decorate your child’s soccer party, featuring our all-new Personalized Soccer Theme.
Our Personalized Soccer Party in a Box gives you everything you need including cups and napkins, as well as these great personalized plates that feature a photo of your little MVP.
We paired the plates with these plain green placemats, and we created little soccer goalie boxes with white tape. These alternate cutlery packets are made in the same way as before.
More Food & Decor Ideas
Mini-sandwiches, vegetable cups and grapes dipped in marshmallow fluff and rolled in sprinkles — all are great ideas for yummy Soccer Party treats and snacks. We changed up the design of our sports drinks, replacing the green soccer ball tape with little soccer players that we made with a die-cut machine. There are literally limitless possibilities for these little projects.
Remember those green, black and white gumballs from earlier? In this case we displayed them in a basket designed to look like blades of grass, which we got from the local craft store. It really can be a treasure trove of amazing ideas. See what you can find at the craft store near you.
We wrote soccer sayings on wafer cookies with purple frosting, but you could also write the guests’ names, further giving the party design a personalized touch.
When a party relies so heavily on one primary color, it can be a good idea to use a secondary color to really make the party pop. That can be the birthday girl’s favorite color, or any other you prefer. We chose purple for this party because it matched the color of little Alexandria’s uniform. The purple frosting draws the eye in that sea of green, and then we topped it off with a soccer ball ring to cement the theme.
Don’t be afraid to mix and match these two themes to create a party design that will please the entire team!
Have we inspired you to throw a soccer party that’s guaranteed to win the birthday championship?
