On Thursday June 4th, my youngest son will turn 11. I have been looking at photos of birthdays past and thought I would share his 9th birthday party. We had a mini golf party at home.
I made the custom banner by cutting triangles with pinking shears and attaching all of them with double seam binding. I made a carnation golf ball topiary for the centerpiece and had a Golfer Check-in table. When the guests arrived, they got a blue golf hat and signed a scrapbook page. They also had to guess how many tees were in the jar.
I hired Putt-2-Go to set up a 5 hole course in my backyard. They bring the course, clubs and even engraved trophies! The guests went around 3 times plus 3 holes (to equal 18 holes). I had trophies for first and second place. For the highest score (last place) I gave the "winner" a plastic golf set so they could practice. All of the guests received golf medals.
I made the cupcakes and flags for the pins out of scrapbook paper. I attached the flags to skewers and the cupcakes sat on raw sugar to look like a sand trap. I wish I could have found mini chocolate golf balls to put on the top of the cupcakes.
