Sports Party Theme
Celebrate your love of sports with a Sports party!
Invite fellow sports enthusiasts to your sports bash with construction paper cutouts in the shape of basketballs, baseballs, footballs and other sports equipment. You can also make sports event ticket invitations. Or, buy sports theme invitations at a party store or online retailer. Another creative invitation idea is to film a video invitation. One person should play the part of a reporter, while another pretends to be a famous athlete. Film a mock interview in which you reveal the details of the party and invite everyone to attend.
Dress as if you are going to a big game or even playing in it. Wear team jersey, caps, t-shirts, wristbands, or come dressed as famous stars, like Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, David Beckham, etc.
Turn your party space into a sports bar with TV screens, tables and video games. Hang posters of sports legends on the walls with sports memorabilia and trophies on display. Set up a basketball hoop, volleyball net, putting green, and soccer nets. Provide plenty of sports equipment for all to enjoy. Give a sports arena feel to the party space with a stadium mural or backdrop. Decorate with streamers, sports Mylar balloons, and banners. Rent life-size sports cutouts for great photo opportunities.
Sports lovers will enjoy sports theme party favors, like wristbands, Nerf balls, tennis rackets, golf balls, sports cards, whistles, NASCAR toy cars, pompoms, foam fingers, baseball caps, and inflatable boxing gloves.
Enjoy some friendly competition by setting up relay races, swimming races, long jump contests, etc. Award prizes to the winners. These can be gold, silver, or bronze medals or trophies for “Most Valuable Player.” Buy a sports theme piñata and see who can break it open first!
Feed guests with common snacks people enjoy while watching the game. These include hot dogs, hamburgers, pizza, chips and salsa, pretzels, snack mix, nachos and ice cream. Also serve water, beer, Gatorade and soda. Purchase sports theme dinner plates, cups, napkins, bowls, and table covers online or at party supply store.
