Football Birthday Party for a Two Year Old

By  | Last Updated:  

A boy’s football birthday party might seem like a mature theme for a two-year-old, but when you see these darling decorating ideas, you might want to style a classic neighborhood pick-up game yourself! Valencia, of Jewelbox Creative Studios, conceived of this boy birthday party for her own precious son. I really appreciate the way these simple football party supplies transform a backyard into a spectacular birthday display.

Yellow pennants wave a cheery hello as guests check out the hand-lettered scoreboard, but attention immediately goes to the handsome dessert table. A yellow and white chevron canopy covers an array of yummy treats. Stripes, dots and chevron sound busy, but generous doses of white keep it looking clean-lined, and with a preppy feel.

Having all of the elevated dessert stands in the same handsome navy color unifies the display, but the tallest cake plate is centered so the focus is on best wishes for the birthday boy. Clear apothecary jars offer a nice, decorative touch and easily let guests see the yummy contents.

An auxiliary cake—you can never have too much, you know!–pudding cups (note even the spoons cheer “Go! Fight! Win!”), football cake pops, football shaped cookies and brownie footballs all tempt guests to celebrate. Chocolate bars, wrapped with a darling picture of the little birthday guy, are fitting take-home favors, too.

A cleverly repurposed storage unit is used as an awesome beverage stand. Mason jars and pennant-waving straws are waiting to be filled with lemonade or tea. I think the ice buckets, with extra water, add to the whole sport feel, too. The food buffet is laid out so guests can build their own sandwich, grab individual fruit and salad cups and a bag of chips before settling in at tables decorated in theme colors of navy, yellow and white.

When a grown-up Alden looks back at pictures from this party he will recognize just how much love and attention was lavished on him, even before he was old enough to know it…not a bad legacy for a party to leave!
