Admit One", give the date, time, stadium (address) "Row" and "Seat", etc. RSVP: Coach (you of course) - "a failure to RSVP may result in a technical foul!!" Ad words like: "Come ready to compete!", "Score big with [your kid's name]!", "Be an ALL STAR", and more. cool idea for ticket invitation you can make it perforated by using a sewing machine with no thread or a knife if you want to have the guest bring the tickets when they come and tear it off for them like at a real game



this is the website i found that at it has lots of cool sports party ideas.

sorry it took me so long to get back on this been really busy. i was thinking you could do sports since thats on his blanket. you can make a baseball or any round ball cake for his smash cake its very easy. then you can do the number one shaped cake for everyone to eat and decorate it in sports http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1175/1123...

heres an idea for a sports invitation

if your good at painting you could try to make this to show everyone where the party is at or even for decor in your backyard just paint on cardboard then tape like paint stirrer sticks to the back to use to put n the ground.

for goodie bags (i dont know if you do these) you can give little balls, cracker jacks, animal crackers, fruit snacks, bubbles (i see alot of packs of 12 at the dollar store) and little sport water bottles (walmart sells babyish toddler ones like sippy cup in the baby section they are usually on the bottom shelf and are like a little more than a dollar each. baseball cards, stickers



this is an easy invitation you could do on paint program just go in and cover up all the parts that arent specific to your son and then add text and put in your sons information you can even change the blue to different shades. i have done this with invitations that i really like that i find online

for activities for the kids



you can just have out some balls and let them play

you can have like an easter egg hunt but with balls or the sports eggs





decor use lots of streamers and balloons to match sports themes

for table cloth you can use like a green and then white tape and make a football field

add pictures of your little guy around i am doing my going to be one year olds on the food table i have 6 im doing with a centerpiece in the middle and 3 pics on each side. pics are of her at different stages in the last year. for your centerpiece to your table you can put a gatorade and whistle or a premade one that matches the paperware or just a football and baseball leaned in together.



let me know if you decide with a different theme and id be happy to come up with ideas for you or if you want different ideas on sports theme im still looking around so ill probably add more anyways

i love planning first birthday parties. we go with a bigger one. For my almost 3yr old her 1st bday was princess theme with tulle hanging from the ceiling all from different ends then all coming together above her highchair then hanging behind it. we had tutu around her highchair tray. i made a castle entrance with pvc pipe and cardboard. it was so funny we had simple crafts making picture frames with stickers, a bubble sword, and water ring thing where water sprayed up. for my baby now her first bday is about her. like nicknames and her favorite things. colors are pink and yellow gingham decor is stuff she loves like teddybears and dolls and balloons. goodie bags are the chines take out boxes (we used these for my other daughters first bday as well) with ribbon and botton to close for food we are having bbq with some of her favorites like pasta salad since she loves noodles and fruit and carrots.

Depends on how big or how small the party and the ages of people coming. I mistakenly ordered a bounce house for my daughters 1st birthday, all the kids her age that were there were to afraid to go in it and I wasted my money. I think age 3 or 4 is a good age to have a bounce house, so if you having a lot of kids over that age then I say do that and snacks, cake and presents. I now just do small parties, so I allow my kids (2, 3, and 7) to have grandparents over (my brother in law comes too but hes single), they get to pick out what they want for dinner that night and what kind of cake (home made, store bought, flavor) I still get decorations and make it fun. I just dont see the point in huge partys for kids other then ages 5, 10, 13, 16, and 18 when you get to kick them out, lol, jk. Hope this helps.
