For a specific theme, like baseball or basketball, you can have all the kids wear their baseball uniforms or jerseys to the party.
A baseball, basketball and even soccer cake is easy to make. Just bake a round cake and then ice using the color you need. Baseballs are real easy to make. Just ice with white icing and then use red icing for the stripes. Just look at a real ball to figure out how to draw the lines. If it isn’t perfect, that is okay. It will be something fun to do and the kids can even help. Cupcakes are real easy too using the same concept.
Locations for parties can be fun to plan as well. You can have parties at ballparks, parks, and your backyard. Use your imagination to have the party somewhere that fits your theme.

One way to save money on decorating items and plasticware is to buy only a few theme plates, cups and napkins and then buy coordinating solid colors to match.

Some great party favor ideas for a sports party could be cracker jacks, bubble gum, sunflower seeds, peanuts and baseball cards. Instead of buying expensive party favors at the party store check your local dollar store for better deals for other small treats.
There are a lot of fun games you can play at a sports theme party. At a baseball party you may can even get a baseball game going with all the kids. At a football party have a competition to see who can kick the football the farthest. You can also make up your own obstacle course for the kids to do. The egg toss game is always fun.
Another decorating tip is to look around your house at what you already have to use for your party. A glove and helmet could be used for holding chips. You could put napkins inside a ball glove.
