Donte's Cricket Themed 10th Birthday Party!
This was one of my son's Favourite Birthday Parties. He is still a Massive Cricket fan, it's definitely a Great theme for all ages!
Cricket Party Area & Setup
For Donte's Cricket themed Birthday Party we chose Green & Yellow as his Party Colours. All of the Table Cloths and Skirting were contrasting Lime & Forest Green.
All of the Party Decorations and Supplies were from Katie J Design and Events; the Bunting/Banners, Posters, Wall Displays, Party Bags, Chocolate, Water and Pop top labels.
Cricket Party Food
The Cricket Themed Party Food was a Hit and Super Easy to Make! There was Iced Biscuits in the shape of Cricket Balls; Cricket Cupcakes, Chocolate Spoons, Wafers Dipped in Sprinkles and Jelly Orange Wedges. The Oranges were very popular with the Kids. To make them, I halved the Oranges, prepared Lime Jelly as per instructions on the box and filled the Orange halves. Once set, I used a Hot Knife to cut the in half.
Cricket Birthday Cake
Not only did Donte's Cricket Birthday cake look Awesome but it was super easy to make. I brought a Sponge from Woolworths and using 2 different shades of Green Icing, I frosted the sponge to into a Cricket pitch. I placed Plastic Figurines that I had brought off ebay on to the pitch and added a little sign which was hot glued to wooden skewers.
Cricket Party Games
We are pretty fortunate that our house backs on to a Large Park. So we took all of the Party kids over to the Park for a couple of games of Cricket. Even those that couldn't play, picked it up the rules quite fast.
Next we cam back up to the house to crack the Pinata! This is always a Favourite Game at our parties and it is so easy to make at home too. Click here, to find out how I make my Pinatas from a Cardboard box and Wrapping Paper.
