This was the easiest, most inexpensive birthday party yet! Coleman wanted a football themed birthday party. A month before, he had actually planned out his party in a classroom project, so it made it even easier on me.
Place: Neighborhood Park (FREE!)
Cake: Basha's with football figures added-on ($35) My only issue with the cake is for some reason they spray painted it sea foam green for the field... I fixed that with some green sprinkles!
Activities: Flag Football game, already had a variety of footballs on hand
Got this set from Amazon- Franklin Sports Flag Football Field Set ($20)
Goody bags: Found coloring football mini-posters at Micheal's ($1 each), foam football ($1) and candy ($1 a bag)
Football themed items: Goody bags and chip bowls from Target, clearance ($2- $3 each), color tablecloths ($1 each)
Entertainment: Denver Broncos vs. New England game playing on the TV! We lucked out and had an inverter that hooked up to my car and made it work with an atenna (remember those?)
Clothing: Football jerseys/shirts we already have! I found the football face tattoos ($1 a pack) so those were a fun addition
Fun Surprise: With the help of Auntie Kim, we got some PVC pipe (FREE!) and created a field goal upright, with some yellow duct tape ($5) it was ready for the game!
Fun was had by all!
I photoshopped helmets on Coleman's friends to protect their privacy.
