Having a Sports theme party with music, party supplies, for a special occasion sounds like a great time. 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. Choosing a sports theme and the music may prove to be challenging. What if someone has a child who loves all sports? What theme should be chosen? Ask the child which theme he or she would prefer and go from there. Once the theme is selected, the planning can begin. What if the child cannot decide on what sport to select? It is the parent’s job to make the child happy so include all the child’s favorite sports rolled into one. Use a green table cloth to represent a baseball or football field, orange tableware items to represent the color of a basketball and so on. What about the music for a sports theme party? Include collegiate football fighting songs such as Notre Dame Victory March, Michigan Wolverines The Victors, and the Alabama Crimson Tide Yea, Alabama! for example. For baseball, there are numerous baseball theme songs such as Take Me Out To The Ball game, Joe DiMaggio by Les Brown Orchestra, Talkin' Baseball by Terry Cashman, Pete Rose Affinity by Summer Hymns, Baseball Dreams by The Naturals with Mel Allen. Quick thought: Put the favors into cellophane bags to keep them all together and so as soon as possible. Never underestimate the power of a clear glass bowl; fill it with flowers, or glass marbles, or seashells, or candy or chips, or make it a dish garden centerpiece or put holiday ornaments in it. A mixture of games both physical and mental will be welcomed by many guests when given the choice.

Sports homemade party supplies such as handmade party streamers, football uniforms, stuffed footballs, stuffed baseballs, baseball hats, sports wall decor and sports centerpieces. Sensational get-togethers often involve designing and preparing in advance for the occasion. Most often color arrangements and other needed supplies will add to the celebration and make a great addition to the event. Nearly all hosts will find that fun décor and color schemes are the perfect perks for the event. This addition will give the celebration a really cool appearance.Party goods such as sports paper plates, napkins, sipper cups and sports water bottles will make preparing for a sports party a lot of fun! Regardless of what type of homemade party supplies you have a variety of sports party banners, streamers and garden flags will make your party complete.

Handmade sports party streamers and homemade sports centerpieces will add a lot to the sports party decor. Party goods such as neon glow sticks, baseball bats, football, soccer balls, baseball mitts, temporary sports tattoos and noise makers will create a great time at your Sports party.

Sports party supplies such as balloon bouquets, party streamers, balloons and handmade sports wall décor items will be added extras to your party. Most often, there is no comparison between your traditional outdoor garden flag and a homemade personalized sports party.

Homemade party supplies such as Sports banners can be personalized especially for the Sports party. Additional sports party supplies, such as sporty paper plates, napkins and cups, along with sports water bottles, football shaped straws, noise makers and multi colored glow sticks will be ideal additions to your party.


A sports themed party needs a sports theme cake, party supplies and a list of various sports to consider. This fast paced celebration is the ideal time for creative desserts and other party foods designed especially for this celebration. 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 celebrated event. If you are stuck on the same sports that are seen in many other sports theme parties, check out the list below which contain the usual and the not so usual choices in sports.

Note: If this is for a child’s birthday, you should always choose their favorite sport to focus on and then have the others as a side note.

Common sports to include in the décor and on the sports cake:

Football
Soccer
Tennis
Basketball
Baseball
Sports to Consider:

Hockey
Volleyball
Cycling
Swimming
Lacrosse
Boating
Hiking

When putting your sports cake together, you can group sports figures and symbols together to form a type of collage. You can also choose to do separate areas of the cake to represent each sports which is also a fun idea.

Quick Tip: Icing the base of the cake green offers a neutral background for the sports to be placed on because it represents grass and being outside – where most sports are played. If you press the icing bag on to base and lift up, letting go slightly, you can create a 3 dimensional grass look. This fun treat will add to the celebration.

A sports party is probably the most celebrated type of party around the world. It’s also one of the few parties where the range of potential guest can be nearly limitless. Think, throughout the world there are thousands of sports of such huge diversity as can’t even begun to be described here. 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. The young and old, men and women, even nerds or athletic types can all be a fan of the same sport. Even boxers have been known to avidly play chess, so you can hold a sports party for any game with any number of different type of people attending. Paradox though it may be, or maybe because of that, sports parties are perhaps the easiest to throw, all you need is the game and some food. A baseball or basketball themed party is exellent for this theme. Most everyone will get into the party from that alone.

Still though, it is nice to have decorations, especially if you’re planning for an important game such as watching the World Series, or maybe just a local high school championship match. If you’re going to watch a game on T.V even if it’s just recorded, then the most important thing will be to have plenty of snacks. The most popular being nachos, but any chip and dip combo is a good bet. Get as many easily microwaved foods as possible such as burritos and the like. As for decorations, that depends on the sport involved, but if the sport is played with a ball such as football than use that as a theme. Maybe adding in some jerseys either as a prop, or worn as clothing if it would make sense to use them.

Finally, whatever you intend to do for your party, even playing the sport itself, remember that things can get quite messy. With all the food going around you’ll want to invest in disposable dishes and utensils, as well as, as many napkins as possible. You won’t want to wash all those dishes after the party.
