Sports-Filled Celebration  Back to Events

If you're frequently cheering on your child at soccer games or swim meets, score some points with a sports-theme party.

To announce the party, design invitations that resemble trading cards, complete with the birthday child's picture and party stats.

If your water-loving child has a summer birthday, a pool party is a great choice. But don't let a winter birthday deter those plans—inquire with a local hotel about renting the indoor pool area for an afternoon of splashy fun.

When guests arrive for a backyard sports party, have them make personalized baseballs to blend their artistic and athletic interests. Then move the party outdoors with an obstacle course.

Be sure to pick up a custom sports cake at your neighborhood Publix Bakery to top off the fun.
