All-Star Sports Boy Birthday Party

By  | Last Updated:  

Sports-themed birthday parties are one of the most popular party planning ideas for boys of every age. For Elias, a multi-sport athlete, there’s nothing better than playing field hockey, Aussie football, cricket, or tennis. So, to celebrate his 13th birthday, his closest family and friends gathered for dinner at his home—and of course his mom, Melissa, of The Sweet Society, planned an amazing sports-themed dessert buffet! A fresh green and white palette, an eye-popping centerpiece cake (standing out in front of the perfect backdrop!), and thoughtful personalization made this party a special celebration for Elias and his loved ones. Keep reading to see the gorgeous spread Melissa organized for her all-star son.

Sweet Scarlett Designs designed the gorgeous paperie, including an awesome sports arena backdrop, for the dessert bar. A theme-colored garland, by Penny Lane Studio, gives the table a festive flair, while a white sawhorse table and serving ware make the scrumptious desserts really stand out. All of Elias’ favorite sports are represented on a remarkable cake, by Just Call Me Martha. The soccer ball design on the bottom layer and the lacing detail on the football layer are extra impressive!

Mouthwatering macarons, by Macarahrah, are tasty tennis ball stand ins. Precious cupcakes—topped with tiny cricket balls in grass-print wraps—are truly tempting treats. I love how Melissa displayed sports-themed cookies (by Petite Cakes Melbourne) and adorable sports ball cake pops (by Hall of Cakes) on field turf. It really adds a special touch.

Elias was especially delighted with the hockey stick cookies bearing his name! Guests took home chocolate bars with cool, personalized wrappers.

This boy’s sports-themed dessert buffet is full of tasty party treats, as well as great party planning ideas. The Sweet Society has had many events featured on our blog, including a Hot Air Balloon 3rd Birthday, an Elegant Blue, White, and Gold Boy’s Baptism, and this Elephant-themed Boy’s Baptism.

Attaining good grades, being selected for the Victorian state team for the second time, and entrance into his teen years were all reasons Melissa wanted to frame a festive celebration for Elias. However, according to Melissa, being a busy mom plus managing her business means she puts her own kids’ birthdays together at the last minute. You’d never know that by looking at this stylish event! Be inspired by Melissa’s choices and follow her lead to create an event that looks high-end but is achievable for a DIY mom.
