Ashton’s Sports Theme Birthday Party: Football

If you are looking for an incredibly easy going party for your football loving kid, here it is. I mean, for me it was easy but it is all relative, right?I love to throw parties and when I can/want to, I go all out. But I have really tried to simplify my life and still do my best but tone it down a notch.

We had so much going on when my son’s actual birthday was that we had to keep postponing it. I was so burnt out by the time his party came around that I wanted to keep it simple but add a little bit of fun elements to it. The only thing that took some time to do was the party favor bags and that took maybe 10 minutes. Other than that, this party was a piece of cake. And doesn’t she make the most precious football player?!

We emailed these football invitations out using Evite so we could track rsvps easily and send out reminder messages. I just used the custom photo card which costs $5 to send to 15 people.Modern Football Party Invitation- Brenda Bird Designs

Food:
Pizzas (2 from Costco)- we cooked them at home and transported them to a park in the same pizza box
Funfetti cupcakes with blue and green frosting (Seahawks colors…almost)
Capri Suns (Costco)- put in a cooler full of ice. *Note- I bought enough for at least 2 per kid but we went through the whole thing and I think they each drank about 4!!
Chips Assortment (Costco)

We gave the kids eye stickers to wear while they played football. They felt like real football players! I didn’t have this flag football set but it would have been helpful to have!

You see? Easy peasy! It was very laid back and all the kids wanted to do was play football and run around at the playground. 2 hours went by quickly and we luckily had a warm and sunny day in Seattle!

To my little man: Happy Birthday ! I love the boy you are becoming. You take such good care of your little brother and sisters, you make everyone feel like a friend, you are such a great helper to me. I know it’s hard to be the oldest and I ask a lot of you because of it. Your younger siblings look up to you and love to play with you. We do still have to work on losing with grace 😉 but that’s ok, you are still learning. Thank you for being so patient waiting for this party to actually happen. I love you so much!
