Throw a Soccer-Themed Birthday Party

The World Cup has me thinking about all things soccer. So what better way to get in the spirit of the games than to throw a soccer-themed birthday party?!

With World Cup fever going on, it's hard to avoid how popular soccer has gotten in America. Most kids play on a community league, and the fun sport makes for great exercise and fun games for the whole family to watch. In honor of the sport, I created this fun Soccer-Themed Kids Birthday Party!

Whether your child is an avid soccer player or just likes watching the games, this party is filled with treats, decor and ideas that will make your little soccer fan feel extra special. 

I updated my favorite classic, Rice Krispie Treats, into Frosted Cheerio Treats just for soccer lovers. The circle shape of the cheerios resemble little soccer balls, and they are so delicious. Plus, they are just as easy to make se Rice Krispie Treats.

Another simple and tasty treat are my Yogurt-Covered Pretzels. They only call for two ingredients, and make for a quick dessert or sweet snack.

To really top of the soccer theme, I created these Chocolate & Vanilla Soccer Cupcakes with Green Grass Frosting! The chocolate and vanilla pay homage to the black and white colors on a soccer ball, and I topped them off with adorable green frosting to look like grass. Add a soccer ball decal on the top to complete the theme.

In my opinion, the best way to display all of your treats is with a themed Dessert Table. Show off your homemade treats, and throw in some other candy to fit your theme.

If you're planning a sit-down meal (even if it's pizza!) add some fun to the table with a Soccer-Themed Table Setting. This one comes complete with a party favor the kids can take home!
