We had so much fun designing and creating this sports themed party for a 50th birthday.  The party hosts wanted as many sports as possible incorporated into the party and even let us borrow some of their sports equipment for our creations.  One thing we love about parties is personalizing them and you will see photos of the host in all of our centerpiece creations.  Hope you enjoy looking at these photos! 

Dessert Table- Cupcakes, Chocolate Dipped Strawberries, Sugar Cookies, Cake (provided by client), and Football Sandwich Cookies

Dessert Table – we used a green tablecloth and masking tape to create a football field.  The number stickers were created with our Silhouette machine and the goalpost how-to blog can be found here https://inspiredoccasionssa.com/2015/03/12/football-goal-post-decor/

This centerpiece features one of the Host’s favorite sports – golf!  We used gel beads in a cylinder vase to have a floating appearance for the golf balls and the golf tees.  We also used photos of the host golfing.  This centerpiece was a hit!

This basketball themed centerpiece is constructed from a basketball net, basketball and whistles.  The “court” was comprised of a piece of wood and electrical tape.  Since this display was outside we put a candle in the vase for additional lighting.

11071086_337481806459542_7203226466265145640_n We used vintage golf clubs that were tied together in twos and balanced them upside down to create a tee-pee.  The area below included a picket fence and patch of grass with a vase of golf tees and golf balls.  We also included a photo of the host glued to a golf tee to make the display personalized.

This was a fun entrance decor display we used for the front of the house.  There are sports lanterns which we stacked on PVC pipe and used a string of lights in each for the illumination.  We referenced one of the host’s favorite sports (golf) by adding “Welcome to Hole 50” on the pennants for this 50th birthday party.  This photo was taken before the event – sorry we don’t have any from the party.  Since these were placed outside around the entrance door they provided just the right amount of attention for party goers.  

11058555_337482056459517_8446124558310805528_nSince many guests were going to be outside, we added sports balls to float in the pool.

The homeowners did not want any guests to place drinks on the window ledge so we included various photos of the host in simple black frames along with pom poms to incorporate the sports theme.

1601245_337481703126219_1626358023499626489_nThis soccer themed centerpiece was created from pvc pipe and a mesh bag.  We also included a green foam board for the soccer field and a mini ball and cone as well as a photo of the host.

Here is our tennis themed centerpiece.  For this one we used tennis rackets, tennis balls, wrist bands and we created the tennis court out of foam and electrical tape.

Our baseball themed centerpieces were a lot of fun to create with photos of the host and peanuts and crackerjacks!  The 2nd baseball centerpiece also includes a field constructed of felt and electrical tape.
