Elegant Return Address
The custom embosser is all about sophistication. Now you can easily add some elegance to everyday stationery or as an elegant alternative to having your return addresses printed on your party invitation envelopes. They also make wonderful gifts. You will be surprised at how often you use your new embosser.
Golf Party Stamps
Personalize your stamps by using one of the great zazzle sports stamps. Please be sure to bring a complete invitation, including all inserts, to a local post office to determine exactly how much postage is required. If you decide not to customize, please do not mix stamps. It is better to add too much postage than a hodgepodge of mismatched stamps. You have spent so much time and money on every other detail, the difference in price is not worth giving a sloppy first impression.
Have you always wanted a friends and family web page? Set-up an event web site to improve communication, and keep your guests. informed This is a fun extra. If you are on a tight budget and have computer savvy friends and family, you might even want to save money by foregoing invitations and instead send invites via your website.
All Sports Party Table Linens
You have many options to create a fun and sporty look. Your choice will ultimately come down to a combination of what your room looks like and how daring you feel. Party Idea Pros first choice is to create a similar look to that in the photo on the BBJ Linen site. It truly is one of our all time favorite looks: Black and White striped linen with fun accent colors. It works great with the Arte Felguerez sculptures — just the right combination of classy and fun. Rent white or black folding chairs..
Likewise, if you are hosting an all sports party at your house just about any color linen you have will be fine, in fact, place mats will also work great, and to tell you the truth, individual sheets of scrap booking paper work great and are adorable. Choose any solid colored paper or any of the patterns pictured below. If you are feeling creative and have lots of time, you can even create a layout highlighting your guest of honor. Alternatively, use your place mats as place cards by creating a page for each of your guests. Laminate it and tie with personalizedribbon for a complete favor anyone can enjoy.
Just a note on chair covers: chair covers may not be necessary if the chairs supplied are fairly neutral and in ok condition. In fact, I tend to not use chair covers at any of my personal parties. Having said that, if your budget permits, the overall look of certain rooms is enhanced if chair pads are used. Choose one of your accent colors.
If you are having a fairly large party, don’t forget to include your place card table, your gift table, buffet tables, and any ceremonial tables when determining your linen count. Also, if you chose to use more ornate linens, do not use them for the cocktail hour; they will have a greater impact as your guests enter the dining room.
All Sports Party Centerpieces
There are so many completely different centerpiece options for a sports theme, here are a few of our favorites.
DIY. These sports ball shaped bowls can be filled, to the point of over-flowing, with popcorn, cracker jacks, or milk chocolate foil wrapped baseballs. Or, simply add a flowering plant or fresh daisies. Mix and match!
These Mylar baseball theme centerpieces are great for casual, festive affairs.

All Sports Party Favors
A sports party theme lends itself to so many party favor options, Party Idea Pros could not choose just one best option, so here are a few choices we call the best of the best … One more thought — party favors can double as place cards when combined with a place card tag or can be used as small tokens of thanks when a thank you tag is attached.
