Fun Frugal Ideas with Lina: Golf Themed Kid Birthday Party

by fancyfrugallife on 01/31/2013

In honor of the Phoenix Open, an event I do miss since moving to CA, I am sharing a golf related post with you today!

Last year we hosted my son’s class to a picnic in the park birthday “Par-Tee”. It turned out super cute and we all had a great time. My son was especially proud of the entire party.The weather was sunny and perfect, (thank goodness)!

All of the coordinating golf party printables are from the wonderful Gwynn Wasson Designs. She does beautiful work. All of her parties are A-mazing…

She sends you personalized ready to print banners, party favor tags, “Club Sandwich” wrappers,

cupcake toppers, and food labels!!

I made these golf silhouettes with foam poster board and thick paint pen. My brother had the golf guy and golf sign (from Hobby Lobby) that are actually wall decor. I just traced them on the poster and colored in with the paint pen…SO easy and festive! Also, I found green linens that were the perfect color at Goodwill for under $5 a tablecloth…. Score!
Here I enlarged one of the invitations designed by Gwynn and made a pedestal frame. I make those from a thrift store frame & candlestick spray painted white and glued together. Golf balls (mine are from Goodwill) make a great centerpiece in a glass vase and faux grass.And here’s the golf wreath made out of left over Christmas tinsel. tees, and balls.

I was kinda proud of this dessert tray….
I ordered the cupcakes at Fry’s grocery and had them pipe frosting to look like grass. Then I added a donut hole and flag. I found this idea via pinterest from this gorgeous party.
The green jello cups were actually my idea though! Ha. I added a flag and rolled mini marshmallows to look like a tiny ball. Here’s my best attempt at sugar cookie golf bags and balls. The golf bag cookie cutter was $0.60 at Sur La Table.

Here’s a bucket of balls (donut holes) and a couple other buckets (from $1 store) I used to hold snacks.

I made “On Par”PB&J’s for the kids with my new sandwich press from Pampered Chef! (A cool present from my MIL). It makes them look like Uncrustables! We also had “Caddyshack” coleslaw, and “Country Club pasta salad”…I love the corny names..So did the parents :) Speaking of parents…the dads were especially impressed and now want a golf party…Ha!

I found some random materials at Goodwill to make a little putting green for the kids. We also decorated foam visors. They were a big hit!

And yes my kids wore argyle sweaters….

What kid wouldn’t love this party. I love the cupcake with the donuts hole and the PB & J cookies. I will try this for the next birthday party.
