football tailgate party [jack's third birthday party]

Tuesday, November 9, 2010

the other day i featured cat's daughter's amazing tea party and today i'm sharing her son jack's third football tailgate birthday party. there are so many incredible details that she used that can be utilized for any sports-themed party you may host in the future. despite the threatening bad weather that day, the party was a success and everyone had fun!


check out his awesome cupcakes and cake topper - sooo cool! the guests were all given spirit buttons featuring the celebrant's adorable pictures!


jack's dad also made this football goal made out of PVC pipes which cat put her creative spin to it and tied colorful buntings on it - i love it. i bet the kids have fun completing their touchdowns here!


she served some power veggie snacks and pb&j sandwiches shaped in football and helmets!





party favors were poms and personalized tags that cat herself made!

i have already added a soccer-themed party to our little guy's ever growing list of party theme possiblities for his birthday next year. thanks to cat's party ideas, the soccer-theme is in the top 3 (among others are nautical, dinosaur and fireman themes) on the list!
