Well the invites were sent now we are just hoping for good weather as we were planning a golf clinic for 5 boys at a local golf course. You really can’t bring this party indoors and we don’t even have a Wii!!
The preparations for this party were pretty simple as it was not at my house and the majority of the party was on the golf range and putting green.
I enlisted my father a lifetime golfer to the task of getting party favors at the club where I grew up. He simply picked up a few score cards, golf tees, ball markers and golf pencils. I decorated some white bags similar to the invitation envelopes and added a bunch of candy. I originally thought I would add golf balls but thought of my own son with this weapon at hand!!
I bought a dark green plastic table covers, white plates and light green napkins.
For the table centerpiece I bought a tin paint bucket and filled it with popcorn balls
to resemble a bucket of golf balls. This was a really easy recipe as you did not have to boil mixture to a certain temperature.
The weather was fine and the kids were all well behaved and surprisingly
focused on hitting balls. I chose to make cupcakes because originally we were going to be on a picnic table under a tent near the golf range. But I think kids like their own little cakes anyway. Details on the cupcake can be at previous post
as I used a Barefoot Blogger recipe.
For thank you notes I really enjoy this idea and saves money and gives parents an idea of what their child was doing at the party. I simply take a picture of each child doing an activity-this was easy each child taking a golf swing-or opening or enjoying the gift they were given. For example, if your child was given a bike from his grandparents, just take a picture of him riding it. Then I make up a template in word to resemble the thank you cards that you fill in the blank for TO: and thank you for…. your friend…..
Just glue the picture on top of the card and have your child print in the details. The kids will like seeing themselves come in the mail. I can email you my template if you wish.
