An at-home bowling party is a fun way for family and friends to enjoy food, music, and of course bowling. Singing, dancing and having a great time with family and friends is what most celebrations are supposed to be like. Therefore, finding the right melodies and tunes for those special events is very important. From rock and country to jazz and blues, getting together with friends and celebrating great times or special events will make your event very popular. Take twelve pop bottles, fill them up with water or sand, and use a softball to knock them down. Have a designated bowling pin operator to set up the pins so players do not have to walk back and forth setting up the bottles for every frame. Ensure the surface of the playing ground is as flat as possible so the ball does not bounce when rolling on the ground. For those children who do not know the rules of bowling, explain it to them in a simple way. Avoid being a stickler to the rules and let kids be kids. For the homemade bowling party, use bowling theme party supplies such as napkins, cups, plates and bowling theme balloons. Keep the enthusiasm for the bowling theme party by including upbeat music from Lady Gaga, Black Eye Peas, U2, Outcast, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Beastie Boys, and The Killers. Flock Of Seagulls I Ran is also a good song that will keep people moving as well. Select songs that appeal to a wide audience. Inspirational suggestion: Go to bed early so that you can get enough sleep before the demands of the next day. Good organization is the key to planning an occasion with less stress, so may lists and check things off as you go. Group activities and games can be used to keep the guests entertained while keeping them busy at the same time.

Decorate the party area with handmade bowling party supplies such as cut outs of pins and bowling balls. Hand paint wooden bowling kids for the bowling party or allow children to paint their one bowling to take home as keep sake. Wooden bowling pins com in different sizes and range in price.

Include homemade bowling game to pass the time during the long winter months. During the warmer months take the bowling game outside to the backyard or side walk. An outside or inside bowling game is a great party game for children. Throw a birthday bash with this game, along with other games, and with the traditional birthday party supplies. The materials needed for a handmade bowling game include 10 empty 2 liter soda bottles, 1 softball or ball of similar weight and size, and 10 cups of water or sand. Add water or sand to make the bowling pins more difficult to knock over.

This exciting and fun celebration is the perfect time for fun desserts and other party foods designed especially for this event. These items are always a great addition to a celebration and most often fun like cakes that are designed especially for this celebration will make everyone feel very special. More often than not, these great party foods and desserts will add a lot of fun to the special event.

To make this bowling cake, you will need the following party supplies: a cake either pre-made which is plain or one you bake, icing in many colors, a small hat or other head gear, Twizzlers, jelly beans, sour straws and other miscellaneous candy items to decorate with.

First, create the base color or design what you want it to be. It could be a solid color or iced to look like a bowling lane. Next, it is time to create the funny bowling pin! You can choose to use a real (clean) bowling pin, an inflatable bowling pin or simply ice on the bowling pin, flat on the cake. Just remember, if you use a real pin, be sure there is enough support under it to hold it onto the cake.

Use the sour straws for the hair, jelly beans for the eyes, Twizzlers for the arms and the other candy wherever you see fit. Get even more detail by creating a team bowling shirt for the pin or even make it look like someone you know. Most people will find that this design works well for a birthday, special occasion or even for a holiday.

A bowling party comes with a great selection of party supplies and other goods. Depending on which type of bowling party you will be hosting will depend on the party supplies you look to purchase or make. From making a guest list to preparing the food, having a plan will make the celebration go off without a hitch. Simple hostess tip: Prepare for the entire celebration in advance and avoid adding any extra commitments or stress on the hostess during the preparation period. This simple tip will ensure that the hostess has a stress free and very entertaining time during the actual celebration.

A 50s bowling party will offer a throw back in time where fun was carefree. In these party decorations you might consider a 50s music selection, invitations with the 50s theme, pink, black and white color scheme along with balloons and streamers. To really get the feel of the 50s, make sure your invitations and any written literature about the party is done in the 50s slang. You can have the girl guests dress up in poodle skirts and have the guys slick their hair back.

You can also choose to have a retro and cosmic bowling party event. Through this you can buy or make tie-die shirts and decorate as if you were in the 70s. Party supplies for this can include beads, bead curtains, glow in the dark objects and more. If you reserve a bowling alley, ask for your own room so you can turn off the lights and see the objects glow. You can also opt for night time bowling, as it will serve the same purpose.

You can even choose to set up your party at home making a bowling alley of your own. This idea usually works better for younger kids, as older kids tend to like a challenge. Themed party supplies can bring any party to life whether it is at home or a venue.
