the details on the golf party!

This golf party was SO much fun to plan!  Not only because I am a "party planning junkie," but because Bryson has such a passion for golf at a young age!

After playing "a round" at the golf course, we headed back to the "clubhouse" aka.... our house, for lunch, cake, and a couple of games.  

The kids enjoyed a "boxed lunch" in the backyard.  I took white boxes and filled them with a "club" sandwich, "chip" shots (potato chips), and a "par"fait (pudding cup).  Then, after I closed up the lunch boxes, I tied on the "Happy Birthday" stamped wooden spoons (my new party LOVE item!) with ribbon and stuck on the custom made menu label!  Perfect for a quick way to have lunches all ready upon arrival as well as easy distribution and clean up!

Of course there was cake and other sweet treats like the "snow balls," which I thought looked just like golf balls.  Especially when topped with the flag.

There were a couple of games to end our afternoon.  A hole-in-one competition, where there were not one, but two winners!  A "guess how many golf tees are in the jar" game.  And, finally, a take on the old "egg and spoon" relay.  We used golf balls and plastic spoons for our version!   

Everyone was a winner during our party and everyone went home with their own trophy!!!!

Each golfer also got a take home their own "bucket of balls" to enjoy at home for breakfast!  The bucket of balls was actually powdered sugar doughnut holes!  Perfect in cello bags and placed in a tin bucket to mimic a bucket of balls you would get at the driving range!
