Great Bridal Showers

Sports Theme

Play Ball! –  Placecard Holders (Set of 3)

You’re sitting down, on the edge of your seat, waiting, and then you hear it…”he’s at the 50, the 40, the 20, the 10, TOUCHDOWN!!!” and you scream. Are you someone who loves sports? Do you watch every game of your favorite team or have decals of your team on your vehicle? If you do, then this theme is definitely for you…a sports theme!

This theme works best if the shower will be co-ed, as men love sports, but it doesn’t have to be. If the bride and groom to be both enjoy the same sport and team, everything will be based off that…if they enjoy two different sports or teams, then planning may take a slight bit longer. Invitations for this theme can be creative…use the colors of the couple’s favorite team(s) and have little pictures of players with the invitation. Also, you could have a generic invitation and decorate it with a border of different sport equipment (football, baseball, hockey stick or puck, etc).

Again, decorations will be based off of the couple’s team(s) or sport…if the groom likes baseball and the bride likes football, you could have footballs and baseballs as decorations along with their team’s colors. If they like the same sport but two different teams, then you could have just the colors of their favorite teams together (i.e. Eagles (green, white, and black) and Redskins (red, yellow, and white)).

As this theme is pretty casual, for food, you could have a tailgate party/cookout with all the works…hamburgers, hot dogs, chips and dip, anything you’d like. For games, you could play all types of sports games such as flag football and volleyball or you could play sports trivia games in groups (men vs. women, teams vs. teams, etc.). For guest gifts, you could have sports cards made (think baseball card) with the statistics of the bride and groom.

If you want a shower theme that will be a ‘hit out of the park’, then try this theme!
