The handsome dessert table was eye catching in graphic black and white with green accents. Antoni rightfully received star billing on the focal point banner with soccer’s geometric patterns and food tent cards coordinated with the layout.
A yarn wrapped letter “A” personalized the dessert table where it stood sentry by a pedestal of cookies.
Off-cuts of artificial turf added color and texture to the themed display, while guests, AKA team members, were tantalized by the large assortment of candies dressed up in apothecary jars. The candy colors even complement the theme.
Round vanilla cookies were customized with the birthday boy’s age.
Chocolate mud cake balls looked like miniature soccer balls! The hand-painted cake balls and cookies were the work of Velvetier’s talented dessert artist.
But before the delectable sweets could be devoured, there were other things to attend to. Antoni not only plays soccer himself, he faithfully follows favorite soccer teams and players.
Mom and Dad knew that a backyard soccer game would be a hit with Antoni and his friends so they set up a small-scale field, complete with goals and a referee. A spirited game culminated in much enjoyment and heightened appetites.
To re-fuel the team, a savory table included homemade bruschetta, a selection of meats and cheeses, and an array of fresh fruit. Antoni’s mom quenched thirsts with several beverages, including lemon and lime spritzers.
In addition to the main event soccer game, the kids enjoyed a couple auxiliary activities: ten pin bowling – with a soccer ball; keeping a balloon afloat with head-balling. What great ideas!
Party guests received soccer balls as prizes and personalized certificates signed by Antoni for each guest’s best play effort of the day.
Before going home, team members filled their themed favor boxes with favorite sweet treats.
Soccer is played in over 200 countries and it is considered the world’s most popular sport. As the game stirs passion in young and old alike, you might expect a birthday party based on this theme will be a hit. Antoni and his guests were certainly elated!
