Golf Party Stamps
Personalize your stamps by using one of the great zazzle golf 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.
Golf Theme Party Table Linens
What a Par-Tee! With this theme your options are limitless. Your final decision should be based on two factors: the physical characteristics of the event room and your guest of honor’s personal style.
If you are hosting a simple and low key luncheon you might consider any of the BBJ overlays pictured below with any of the recommended coordinating linens. Even simpler? Stick to forest or burgundy classic cloths with Old Time Golf Napkins. If you want to add some punch and fun to the room, consider Green Metallic Shag as your primary linen, emerald or black lamour as your coordinating linen and chair covers, and then accent with black or emerald chair ties. Again, use Old Time Golf napkins.
If you want to save some money, most venues will supply complimentary white or cream linens; stick with white unless you prefer a more vintage look. Likewise, if you are hosting a baseball 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 personalized ribbon 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.
Golf Theme Party Centerpieces
Although this particular juniper with golf ball is no longer available, it is easy enough to recreate. Simply pick out a bonsai from Bonsai Boy of New York and add a golf ball! Or purchase a golf bucket, fill it with golf balls and a bottle of wine!
Another cute option is to fill a vase of flowers with golf balls and voila … you have a golf theme centerpiece!

Golf Theme Party Favors
Although the recommended place cards and napkin rings can also serve as party favors, if you wish to lavish gifts on your guests or prefer to use a simpler place card, consider these fun party favor ideas. They will also add another dimension to your table setting. Order 1 party favor for each couple, 1 for each single. Use a liquid gold pen or colored Sharpie marker to write your the guest of honor’s name and the date of the party.
