Sports Themed Birthday Party
Another year means another birthday! We celebrated last November my baby boy’s 9th birthday! I’m finally getting around to posting his sports themed birthday party. I decided to wait because of the holiday schedule, and I knew January would be quieter on the editorial side. So, I’m excited to share Jackson’s sports themed birthday party. He is loving his organized sports teams he plays every season, and playing sport games after school with the neighborhood kids. So he didn’t hesitate when he told me his birthday theme. His current favorite sports are soccer, basketball and football, so I focused the birthday party around those three sport games. He wants to pursue a career in sports and told me he wants to study a degree in sports management. I think it’s great that he already knows what he wants to study even at his age! If you want to learn more about this degree, you can learn more here.
One of the favorite things I love to do at a birthday party is create a birthday dessert table. It brings out the theme and the party decorations, and the kids LOVE it. So we had the sports themed dessert table, and I played it up by calling it Jackson’s concession stand and packed it with items you’d find at a sports event. I also served concession food for lunch like hot dogs and chicken nuggets and fries. When we weren’t have fun eating, we were playing sports. For the main activity of the party, we headed to our neighborhood sports field and played flag football and soccer. It was only until after the party that I realised that Zorb Ball is designed for those who are seeking to get excitement, as this would have been a great activity for the party. We had such a great time, and they didn’t want to leave. Boys are so easy to entertain! Just give them a ball and they won’t want to finish playing with it. I listed all the party resources below and how to’s.
