PARTY DETAILS, as told by Lori

When it came time to plan for my son’s 8th Birthday, there was no other choice than a Football Party. This past summer, Grant started playing football for the Puyallup Roughriders which was the inspiration for the party. We used the colors of cardinal and gold and white. We wanted to recreate the same football stadium that my son played his home football games so created a Scoreboard sign that reflects that only changing the name of the stadium to my son. We were lucky enough to have several jerseys and helmets we were able to borrow to enhance our dessert table. For the actual table décor, we got a piece of Astro Turf from Lowe’s and then my trusty husband constructed goal posts as the finishing touches for the table. We also constructed bleachers to really set the turf off and to add depth to the table and we added cupcakes, popcorn and football cake pops as the “fans.” For the other treats on the table, I baked football shaped sugar cookies and hot dogs, the perfect football snack.

    This is adorable! The way to make a birthday party perfect for children is to cater to their specific likes and dreams! So a fairy theme or princess theme is great for the little girl that loves those things and so on. Once you find the right theme, the next step is decor and games! I have found some great, fun games and have loved the response from the kids!
