{Real Parties} All Star Soccer Mania!

 Emily at Toad's Treasures originally hosted this Soccer Team Party.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Growing up I played on a few sports teams - basketball, baseball, and softball - before ultimately finding my sport: swimming.  One thing I loved about playing on the teams was making friends in other grades, and of course the 'Year End Team Party!'  Our parties were not very elaborate, usually a slice of pizza or ice cream but we loved it.

A great improv by Emily due to rain to kick the soccer ball pinata to break it open.  Afterall, it is a soccer party!  Enjoy the party, leave a comment, and then go visit Emily's blog!

Ready, Set, Throw! How about a fun team party? Here are a few ideas for a "sports team" party!

{Ethan's soccer team party: Simple & Fun}


{The Spread}
The menu: Grilled hot dogs, fruit kabobs, string cheese, chips, water bottles with our team name on them, cookies on a stick and soccer cupcakes for dessert!


{The invites}

{Party Cookies}
I just made sugar cookies and baked them on a popsicle stick, wrapped them up, & put stickers on the outside. For more picts and the recipe I used click here.

{Pinata}
What kids doesn't love a pinata?! We had a soccer ball pinata which was not only a great decoration, but the kids LOVED it. We decided (on account of rain outside) that we would just have the kids actually KICK the ball around until the candy came out. They LOVED it & so did we! We had them each take turns kick it to eachother and then into the wall to open it up.

{Party Bags}
Just brown paper bags! Totally easy, but cute. I attached a balloon to each bag & it was a hit. I printed out the soccer balls & stars on sheets of "label" paper, cut them out, and tah dah!

{Thanks for a great season Super Kickers!}
It was so great "coaching" these sweet little guys this season. Stay tuned! I'll post more about our season soon!

Thank you for sharing your party with us!
