Kentucky Derby Invitations
Sports themes are great for many different parties. Whether it’s your son’s birthday, your husband’s birthday, or a “guys’ night out” you’re planning, a sports theme is always a winner. But don’t forget the girls. Many girls would far prefer a soccer themed birthday party to a girly tea party.
First, choose your sport or decide that you’ll cover a variety of sports. Here are some ideas to help you decorate.
- Decorate using your guest of honor’s favorite team colors. So don’t just throw a horse racing party, throw a horse racing party that honors your guest of honor’s favorite team. Buy horse statue, horse streamers and paper products in team colors.
- Use black and red tablecloths that represents start and finish line. Your table will look like turf.
- Put flowers in racing helmets for centerpieces.
- Use a triangular pool ball rack to hold a colorful variety of cupcakes. Sit them on a green tablecloth and it looks just like you’re ready to break!
