Bringing all of your friends together for a cheer themed party can be one of the most fun ways to celebrate together.
Necessary Cheerleader Themed Party Supplies
The birthday invitation should include:
- Expected Dress
- What to bring
- RSVP information
Cheerleader Theme Music
One of the biggest components of a cheer theme party is the music. When creating a playlist remember to time the music to the flow of the party. Upbeat, fun non-dance songs at the beginning that mean something to you and your friends transitioning into the great dance songs later on in the evening. One of the best things about a cheer themed party is that you can use competition music that you’ve used or danced to and play that at the party. It’s a great way to remember all the great cheer music and routines that you’ve done with your friends.
Cheer Party Decorations
Decorations for a beach party should include colors, patterns, tiki textures, sand, and elements of the beach. Thrift stores often have beach themed items for a fraction of the price you can them elsewhere. Bringing in pails, buckets, surf boards, boogie boards, rafts, sun tan lotion and other items you may already have can make it feel like the beach. Bright plastic table wear is completely ok because it fits within the beach theme. Centerpieces can be fun plastic sand buckets with squirt guns, paddle balls and other cheap giveaways that bring the beach to the party.
Cheer party decoration items to consider include:
- Personalized big head cutouts
- Tumble Mats
- Table Covers
- Napkins, Cups, Plates
- Giveaways (candy, champagne bottles (or apple cider), CDs, picture frames)
