How to Throw an Easy & Thrifty Kids Soccer Birthday Party
It seems like the trend with birthday parties these days is more, more, more…
However, you can still provide an awesome soccer-themed celebration without breaking the bank, so you can save that extra cash for soccer cleats!
Soccer Birthday Party Decor Ideas
First up, soccer-inspired decor! We kept things fun yet easy with soccer paper lanterns, a simple green tablecloth, and strategically placed mini-soccer balls that the kids got to decorate and take home with them after the party.
Soccer Recipes & Treats
Chocolate Covered Soccer Oreos — These are easy to make and can be prepped a couple days in advance. They hold well and look super cute on your party table! (You could also use these as a take-home treat for your guests). CLICK HERE for the full recipe!

Pro Tip: A frosting decorating bag makes drawing the field lines a breeze!
Soccer Pretzels — Squish mini marshmallows using the back of a spoon and use an edible food marker to add black dots to look like a soccer ball. Attach your soccer marshmallows to a waffle pretzel “net” with a dab of melted white chocolate.
Soccer Ball Fruit Dip — Mix vanilla flavored Greek yogurt with a tablespoon of honey for a protein-rich snack. Top with mini Oreos to achieve a soccer ball look. Add soccer picks to cut fruit for easy dipping.
