Football Party – Sweet 1st Birthday Football theme

Football Party

I just love the styling of this gorgeously fun Football Party by Ms Laine Events.

The color scheme for this Football Party has a strong focus on green, black and white making a really striking set up.  However, the cute iced animals on the cake and cupcakes balance the theme with a real First Birthday feel.

This party would work equally well for a Football Baby Shower. In addition, I love the use of faux grass in the styling as a table cover and a backdrop, very clever!

This sets a perfect scene for a children’s Football party celebration!

Theme tips:

  • Firstly, keep the color scheme simple as black and white are strong colors. Try to introduce a softer accent like the soft blue seen here.
  • Next, use faux grass or greenery to create a football pitch effect.
  • Meanwhile, carry the color scheme through from the food into the décor.
  • Finally, use a balloon arch with football balloons to extend the theme and give height. Click here to follow our DIY Balloon Arch tutorial.
