Mini Golf Party

(click on images to enlarge)

Today was my son's 9th birthday party. It was a golf theme. We had Putt-2-Go set up a mini golf course in our backyard. There were 5 holes and the kids were divided into threesomes. The 1st, 2nd and 3rd places received engraved trophies.

I made the cupcakes and custom made the flag sticks out of scrapbook paper. They sat on tiered stands dusted with raw sugar to simulate a sand trap. The kids signed a scrapbook page, guessed how many tees were in the canister (299 FYI) and received golf hats and medals.

I served hot dogs, chips, limeade, lemonade, fruit and custom printed M&Ms.

My son wrote the menu on the homemade chalkboard.

I made the bunting flags that hung from the patio cover and made the flower centerpieces. I went nuts on eBay by buying lime and navy tees and 100 range balls. I couldn't resist buying the tiny golf pencils from Smart & Final. At the end of the party, I sent the kids home with chocolate candies I made (choc golf club pretzel rods and white choc golf ball lollipops). I bought range ball cards for the raffle and guessing game. The kids all had a fabulous time especially my son, which is why I do this anyway!

What a great party! I love unique party themes. I fell in love with the one Martha Stewart had in her Kids magazine a few years ago, and just waiting for my boys to get a little older to have a golf party. I'm definately adding this to my "party library".

Love this! I love the bunting and the flags in the cupcakes! And who knew you could get mini-golf set up in your own back yard!?! This would be fun for everyone!
