Hosting a cheerleading theme party is a perfect and fun idea for a group of "cheerful" young girls! If the guest-of-honor is a cheerleader, this is a natural pick for her party. But even is she is not, she and her friends are sure to love this fun theme!
Let's Cheer Party
Cheerleading Party Ideas
The key to pulling off a coordinated
event: Evoke your theme throughout the affair. Whether that theme is
as general as a season or a feeling, or as specific as a special
character, it should be the subtle thread that ties everything
together. Your location, invitations, flowers, menu, cake, and
favors should all cleverly reflect one common concept. Then, get as
creative as you can!
A cute idea for invitations would be to give everyone a small, inexpensive
with a computer-generated sticker on the side stating the details of the party and telling the guests to bring the megaphone with them that day for some winning spirit!
Here are more ideas for your spirit-filled bash!
Pom Poms are an easy way to create the cheerleading idea by hanging them or simply having them sit on the floor. Their presence will be a sure hit! If you don't want to buy real pom
poms, you can make your own using Crepe Streamers. Cut many strips of about 14 inches long and tie them together in the middle with a small piece of string. Pull and fluff the streamers to make them fluffy like pom poms.
Hang pennants around the party area for a splash of color. Make your own out of construction paper. Cut the paper into long triangles and write the names of each guest on them. Glue them onto a small dowel rod and use them as adorable
place cards on your party table.
Bring color to the table via
napkins. Give each person two napkins slipped into one napkin ring. Use two different colors, two coordinating patterns or one patterned and one solid-colored napkin. A colorful setting can be achieved with little effort this way.
Cover your tables with
Solid Color Tablecovers . If using paper tablecovers, jazz them up by writing randomly all over them with a paint pen. Use words like "Let's Go" and "Victory" to fit your theme.
Don't forget about
Balloons! They are a simple but effective way to create a festive atmosphere for any occasion or any theme. Choose the birthday girl's favorite colors for your balloons, fill them with helium, and tie them on each chair.
Balloon Decorating Tips
Pin a cheerleading outfit onto the
wall along with other sports items.
You could buy several Styrofoam Letters and spray paint them in vibrant colors. Arrange the letters to state "GO, FIGHT, WIN" and "GO TEAM" and hang them on the wall.
On the table, be sure to have some Metallic Shred lying in different piles of coordinating bright colors to look like a bunch of pom poms. If your party guests all go to the same school, use the local school's colors to pull the theme together.
An inexpensive set of
Pom Poms is sure to thrill any young girl!
Temporary tattoos, easy to apply and
can be removed quickly with cellophane tape or rubbing alcohol.
Cheerleading Food & Cake Ideas
Hot dogs, nachos, popcorn, peanuts…anything you would find at a ball game concession stand would be perfect to serve at this party. Another fun idea would be to serve food that matches your theme colors, such as layering Jell-O™ in parfait glasses in alternating colors. Popcorn, candy or pretzels served in upside down
will earn you three cheers for the fun food!
Shake your Pompoms, give a cheer…an awesome cheerleader cake is here!
What you'll need:
1 cake mix
1 - 16 oz. container of ready-made frosting to frost the megaphone
1 - 16 oz. container of ready-made frosting to frost the pompoms, outline the megaphone, and write a birthday message on the cake.
2 containers of coloring paste or gel to tint the frosting. Use the colors you have selected as your theme colors (this can be your child's favorites, school colors, favorite team colors, etc.)
2 Hostess Snowballs™ for the pompoms
Small container of edible glitter (optional) to cover the pompoms. (As an alternative, flake coconut can be colored and sprinkled on the frosted snowballs.)
Does a BIG birthday cake taste better than a small cake? No, but a really big cake sure is fun to look at, and makes a great centerpiece for a birthday table! The following guidelines will give you an idea of what size to choose for your party:
9" X 13" Rectangle pan - 1 mix: serves 12-18 guests
18" X 13" Rectangle pan - 2 mixes: serves 18-28 guests (If you are using this size pan, just double the amount of frosting…all other ingredients beyond the cake mix and frosting amounts will remain the same.)
Because you are cutting the cake into a shape, you will be discarding some of the cake, and will need to adjust the size accordingly. If you are serving more people than can be accommodated by 2 boxed mixes, we recommend that you either bake extra cupcakes, or an extra rectangular cake. All can just be frosted simply, and cut and served behind the scenes. Cut and assemble the cake.
Step One: Cutting the cake is easy, just think of the shape of a megaphone. Use one end of the rectangle cake as the top of the megaphone, go in about 3" from the corner and lightly mark with a knife, do the same on the the other side. Then lightly draw a line at an angle from the two marked spots at the top of the cake ending a the outside edge on the opposite end of the cake. Cut away the excess from the top of the cake to form the megaphone shape.
Step Two: Assemble the Cake Board
Using frosting in one of the two theme colors, frost entire megaphone. Using a piping bag with a writing tip, or a quart-sized ziplock bag (with a small hole snipped from one of the bottom corners,) outline the outside edge of the megaphone with the second color of frosting. Using the same method, write a message on the cake for the birthday girl. This can be in the form of a cheer like, "GO ABBI!" or a simple Happy Birthday greeting.
Next, frost the top of the Snowballs™ in the same color as the megaphone outline. Sprinkle with edible glitter or colored coconut and set them on one side of the cake at the top. Enjoy!
