Party Slogan:

After selecting this theme for your party, choose a slogan to use in your invitations, and to use in tying in decorations and personalized favors to your super sports theme.  Try one of the following, or brainstorm with the birthday boy or girl to come up with the perfect slogan for your party

  • ”Heads up for a Kickin’ Good Time!”
  • “World Cup Party”
  • “Partying with Chase is our GOAL!”

 Top

Invitations:

Choose a SOCCER INVITATIONS that will let your guests know what a kickin’ time they will have at the party.

Be sure that the invitation notes that kids should come dressed to participate in sporting activities, including the right kind of footwear.  Shin guards and soccer socks are optional!

Soccer Party Decorations

You won’t have to wait for the World Cup to experience the thrill this soccer party is sure create!  We’ve gathered everything you’ll need to decorate and celebrate breakaway style, and to guarantee all-star action for everyone!  

Line a walkway with Die-Cut Shimmer Stars, writing each guest’s name on a star.  Tape the stars with masking or duct tape to the sidewalk, walkway or exterior walls leading to the site of the party. 

Attach a bouquet of helium filled Balloons  to a light post or mailbox so there will be no mistaking where the fun will be that day!

Table Decorations:

Generally, decorating for this party can be fairly simple, because typically this party will be held at a specialized soccer facility, gym, park, or backyard and the focus will be on playing the game.  However, there are times when you might want to use this theme for a more upscale event, or even a  wedding reception. Regardless of what type of event you are planning, try to greet guests with a festive welcome, and create over-the-top tables for eating, and for food and gift display!

At some point during the planning stages of your event the subject of linens will arise. When it does stop and think of all the possibilities available to you. Current trends are moving away from all-white {linen}. Our clients tell us they are looking for ways to make a statement, set a theme, & create a mood. 

Remember the tops of the tables provide you with a very large surface area and covering them with a specialty soccer print themed tablecloth is the easiest way to change the feel of a room, and it will make a statement that no white cloth alone can make. It is also the most cost effective way to decorate. If your planning a more casual event you could use a GRASS TABLE COVER.

One of the hottest trends is the runner, which can quickly transform a bare table — or even a tablecloth. Our solution: "Wheat Grass" (available in health food stores), just pin wide ribbon around the base of several sheets of wheat grass and use as a runner down the center of your table. Place a soccer ball in the center of the runner. If you want to dress the table up a bit, tuck flowers (daisy, sunflowers) inside water tubes, stick water tubes down into the wheatgrass to create a elegant tabletop. 

Try one of the following ideas to liven up your table:

Napkins can serve several purposes…great decorating in disguise and a treasured memento for scrapbooks.  Order Napkins in your team colors and have them imprinted with your party slogan, name(s) and the design of your choice. The napkins can be laid out on a serving table, or can be displayed at each place setting at an angle. 

Bring color to the table via cloth napkins. Give each person two napkins slipped into one napkin ring. Use two different colors, two coordinating patterns or one patterned and one solid-colored napkin. A colorful setting can be achieved with little effort this way.

Unfold the napkins, pinch each in the center of the napkin and place the center point in the bottom of each cup or wine glass,  this adds a festive touch while the glassware is still empty. 

Tie napkins with SOCCER BEADS and place in the center of each plate at an angle. The cutlery can also be added before the napkin is tied.  

Centerpiece Ideas:

For elegant centerpieces for guest tables or buffet tables use an ice sculpture of a soccer ball.

Create your own centerpiece. Use a 10" or 12" foam base. Cover the side of the base with a ribbon. Cover the top with foil poufs in team colors (make poufs by cutting 5" squares from foil paper, pinch the center of the foil square and attach to wood or metal floral picks, push picks down into foam base), set an INFLATABLE SOCCER BALL in the center of the base, on top of the poufs. Accent with sprays of Onion Grass & 2" glitter stars (available at craft & hobby stores). Other items that could be used for accents include:

Add one or a few of the following touches to accent your tables:

Cover the gift or food table with grass green floral sheeting vinyl to create a clever surface that resembles a soccer field.  Use white athletic tape to create the touchlines, goal lines, halfway mark, center mark, penalty area, and corner arc.

Place a 12X12” piece of the “turf” (same material as the table cover grass) under each plate as a placemat on the table where the kids will eat. 

Set a Cheer Phone at each place setting as a place card.

Hang  a Pennant down the back of each chair around the table.  

Cheer on your favorite team with PLASTIC MEGAPHONES!

Add some pom poms in team colors, to add a real splash of color to your party site.

Pay tribute to your child's soccer heroes or favorite team by adding logoed pennants, jerseys, caps, autographed balls, or well-worn shin guards...anything you have around the house.

PLASTIC MEGAPHONES (sport cones) are great for running drills, and they will also add a great splash of color to any party location!

 Soccer Party Cake & Food

When you are “trapping” the soccer players to stop for a moment, for a little nourishment, they’ll be delighted when you serve soccer ball cake and ice cream! 

  • To make the cake a real standout, cover the food table with grass green floral sheeting vinyl creating a clever surface that resembles the playing surface of a soccer game.  Place the baked and cooled cake in the center.  Decorate the cake, and then use white athletic tape or white piped frosting to create touchlines, a halfway mark, goal lines, a center mark, penalty area, and a corner arc.  The other food can then be placed on the table around the cake.  
  • If you are serving more people than can be accommodated by one boxed mix, which is what this pan calls for, we recommend that you simply bake extra cupcakes, or an extra rectangular cake.  All can be frosted in matching frosting, and cut and served behind the scenes.

Food:

  • As the excitement is so high at children’s birthday parties, most children under the age of 10 will eat very little, and the waste can be disheartening.  If you are entertaining a younger crowd, schedule your party during a time when parents will not expect that their children will eat a meal…and serve only cake, ice cream, and a few other munchies such as popcorn, cheese balls, grapes or M&Mstm.  
  • If you are serving a meal, serve typical "sports spectator" concession stand food – hot dogs, nachos, soft pretzels, pizza, chips, popcorn, and snow cones.  Use Die-Cut Shimmer Stars to label each dish with a creative name.  Dribble Dogs (hot dogs), Heading Burgers (hamburgers), Noggin’ Nachos, Striker Snow Cones, Passing Pizza, and Corner Kicks (corn chips) would all be fun to serve and eat!  The leftover shimmer stars can be used to create place cards for each all-star at the party!

Soccer Party Activities

You’ll meet your GOAL of throwing the best party ever for your child with these sure to please activities!

  • Purchase an inexpensive t-shirt for each guest from a discount store (Wal-Mart carries them for approximately $2.00-3.00/top). On the back of each jersey write the guest's last name and add large numbers using fabric paint.  You could also purchase two different colors of shirt, and divide the kids into teams at the outset of the party.  If you choose this route, make sure that the teams are evenly matched from a skill standpoint.  Let the kids suit up, and then take lots of pictures of your child's "team"…the kids will love it!

     

  • Balls, balls and more balls are the most critical element for a soccer party!  If the party is being held in a backyard or open field, add some chalk lines to create an authentic field.  Plan time for the kids to play as they choose.  They will enjoy this as much as anything you might organize.   

     

  • Using a metal whistle and cheer Phone (sport cones), run some organized soccer drills or create a few fun “Skill-Seeking” games.  Include drills for passing, shooting, trapping, dribbling and heading.  For the heading drills, use a  PLUSH SOCCER BALL unless the guests are advanced soccer players.  

    Recruit a couple of star soccer players from a local team or high school team to work with the kids.  Younger children look upon these athletes with awe, and the athletes will be flattered by the attention of their young charges!

     

  • Give each guest an inflated WHITE BALLOONS , or BLACK BALLOONS  to play “Noggin’ or Nothin’”.  The object of this game is for players to hit the balloon up into the air, and keep it afloat for the longest period of time using only their heads!  If a player’s balloon hits the floor they are given a red card, and ejected from the game.

     

  • Divide the party guests into two equal groups.  About 25 yards away, place mounds of inflated white and black balloons by two MEGAPHONES. These balloons should be over-inflated to make popping easier. At the sound of a whistle the first two relay contestants, one from each team, run to the cones and remove one balloon.  Each must sit on a balloon until it pops. Once the balloon pops, the players run back to the starting line, and tag the next player in line. The first team to complete the course wins.  Not a quiet game…but a guaranteed favorite!
  •  
  • Set the stage for the Birthday Cup complete with dazzling player introductions, pumped up music, and play-by-play commentary.  Soccer Moms and Dads can be invited back to the party early to witness this spectacle.  You’ll definitely want the video camera running! 

     

  • All the finest sporting venues have a gimmick for introducing the starting lineup!  Start with our budget priced Solid Color Flat Paper, which comes in 4’ X 50’ rolls.  Prior to the party, cut the paper into 6’ sections.  Using poster paint, write each child’s name, nickname and number in large print on the paper.  Have an adult helper hold each end of the paper at the start of the game, and let each player crash through the paper as his/her name is announced.  If the children are younger, you may want to perforate the center of the paper with a pin or small nail before the party to make the big entry easier.

     

  • A Karaoke Machine is the perfect tool for a sports commentator to call the play-by-play!  Recruit dad or another sports nut for the job.  Give the announcer the kid’s names and numbers, and some pre-scripted notes with a personal bio of each child.  Involve each child’s parents prior to the party.  Ask for a few fun facts, and weave those into the commentary.  “When Chase was only 6 years old, he single handedly scored 12 goals in one game…and he only played the first half of the game!”  “Jennifer used to be so involved in her T-ball games that she’d be turning cartwheels in the outfield.  That’s why she plays soccer now!”  Give each child equal airtime, despite the fact that some may be gifted athletes, while others will have had little or no experience with the game.       

     

  • Ya’ll ready for this?  Pump up the jam with some great sports arena music and sound effects.  The ESPN Jock Jams and Jock Rock series of CDs are great.  The background sound will relax the kids who might be a little intimidated, and fire up the whole team!  Let the “G” rated trash talk begin!

     

  • When the game ends, pass out favors to each child bestowing them with a special soccer nickname.  “Hands Free Freddy”, “Hi-Kick Hank”, “Gorilla Goalie Griffin”, “Noggin’ Poundin’ Nick”, “Super Striker Sam”, “Midfield Max”.

    We offer a wonderful Soccer Ball Pinata and we’ve yet to find a child who doesn’t want to take a swing at one at a party.
