New Printables to the Shop - SPORTS!

Since the very beginning of my Shindig Parties venture, my plan was to add new sets to the Etsy shop weekly. And then life happened. Starting a new business is a daily learning process, and I realize now that my goals in the beginning might have been a wee bit lofty. 


With all of the wonderful response to Shindig Parties, I became very busy and  soon realized that the goals I had in the beginning were falling by the wayside. So I'm happy to say, I've got a plan, I'm back on track, and will hopefully be showing you all many more new printables sets and invitations in the coming months.


In the last month I've added a Camping Party set, a Camp Out invitation, a Go Kart Party set and a Cowboy Birthday Party set. Whoo-hoo! That makes me so happy! And today I'm going to show you another new set that I've been working on, SPORTS BIRTHDAY set.

If you remember my football table from earlier this year, this set is very similar to it. Want to know some of the party table tricks? I love to make a table without breaking the bank, and this one, even with the Goal post, artificial turf tablecloth and all of the food was just a little over $100. 


It was pretty easy.... here's how. 


Just use a little artificial grass from Home Depot, spruce up some solid color paper sacks from Party City with the favor tags, and cover some white wedding favor boxes (cut off the handles) from the Dollar Tree with the papers that come with the printables set, and you can make a a fun sports themed party table without spending too much. 


Other ideas were the Dollar Tree megaphone shaped water toys that I covered in orange scrapbook paper and added a ball to the top. Then I used pvc to fashion a goal post, glued it together and spray painted it yellow. After adding some plaster of paris to a Dollar Tree trash can, I put the field goal post in and let it set to harden. 


And of course the letters for Chap's name and the number "6" were purchased at Hobby Lobby and covered in the coordinating papers that come in the printables set. And the backdrop was just a 1/4" piece of 4'x4' board covered in a $4 Walmart navy blue sheet.


You could do similar items for the new Sports Printables set, just change out the colors to green and blue and add some basketballs, soccer balls and baseballs to the mix.


I hope to work on a Sports Birthday party table soon, so if you've got any cute ideas, be sure to share! Thanks everyone!
