Plan your next party like a champion with this handy Sports Team Party Guide, brought to you by EVITE® and Olive Garden.
We all love seeing our kids on the field. Watching them grow and mature in their sport throughout the season is such a great feeling for a parent. So when they’ve played their last game, let’s help them celebrate with their teammates…AND what could be a better way to celebrate, than with a themed sport party??!?
Tips for a Sports Themed Party
I don’t know about you, but I love EASY themed parties. EVITE and Olive Garden make throwing a sporty party a snap. Start by picking an invitation that matches your sport, like this free EVITE invitation or another one from their Sports and Leagues invitation gallery.
For decor, EVITE has a free sport neutral banner and party favor printables. Carry out the theme with disposable tablecloths, plates, napkins and cups in the team’s colors, or something that reflects your sport.
Keep the food EASY by having it catered. Things like pasta, chicken and sandwiches are always big hits with kids and adults. Olive Garden’s five-cheese ziti, chicken parmigiana and breadstick sandwiches are a few great choices.
Grab-and-go desserts keep the party moving! Cupcakes or Olive Garden’s dolcini (an individually sized dessert featuring layers of cake, mousse, pastry cream and berries) are some great options.
Having a few activities planned is always a good idea. It could be something as easy as an adult/kid scrimmage, sports trivia or even a fun sport’s themed version of pin the tail on the donkey.
A photo booth is fun way to remember the party. EVITE even has free photo booth printable props that you can cut out and attach to small wooden dowels (available at craft stores).
