Decorative ideas for your children’s football party

Four slightly different ideas for a World Cup party

Decorative ideas for your children’s football party

Goooaaalll! It’s nearly time for the World Cup to start! Emotions are running high, flags are being waved and the fans are singing. Who’s going to win the cup this time?

One or two football parties are of course part and parcel of any World Cup. If public screenings are not your thing, perhaps you’re looking forward to a lovely private barbecue party. Anyone who wants to offer their guests more than just cans of beer and barbecued food can find a few ideas here that will turn your football party into an event for everyone!

An invitation can be created in no time at all.

1. Invitation cards

Naturally, a party needs an official invitation. The stylish way to invite people is with invitation cards from ifolor. Our party is being held for Switzerland’s 1st group match. The time finally arrives on 17 June 2018 when Switzerland starts its World Cup with its 1st match against Brazil.

The invitation can be conjured up really quickly online using greeting card templates. It doesn’t have to be a double-sided greeting card. A postcard is adequate for all the relevant information for the party.

The country’s national flags (Switzerland and Brazil in this case) can be shown on the front and the details about the party itself, including when and where, on the back.

A pretty picture and the child’s name turn the football into a one-off.

2. Personalised football

The round thing has to end up in the corner and should always be taken to the pool or playground. That’s what we say at home anyway ;-) We are of course talking about a football. A football with your own photo and saying is a great idea for big and small football fans. There are guaranteed to not be any mix-ups or arguments at the playground anymore and with your personalised football you won’t get bored at half-time as young footballers and pros can show off their talent at football.

The party is twice as much fun with the right decorations.

3. Wall poster

A big screen and delicious food and drink are part and parcel of any World Cup party. Matching decorations make the event perfect though! How about a poster paper chain? For this, a few photos of your favourite football players are simply printed out and hung throughout the whole flat or garden on a piece of string using clothes pegs. Perhaps you also have some great football photos of yourself, the guests or children that would be ideal for this kind of paper chain? Alternatively, the posters can also be hung on the wall.

The photo puzzle, a highlight for children

4. Photo puzzle

We’ve sorted out the right activity for the youngest during the party: the ifolor photo puzzle is a great option for this. Two sizes can be chosen for the puzzle, either 56 or 169 pieces. Besides the puzzle size, there are also different layouts to choose from. A football layout is one of the options that picks up on the football theme again. The children are bound to be thrilled to discover a photo of themselves when they’ve finished the puzzle.

Big balls for little footballers!
