Cheerleader Theme Birthday Party Tips
Girls love cheerleading! Request that guest come dressed in cheer uniforms (if they are currently a cheerleadrer) or in certain colors. Present each girl with pom poms when arriving. Below you will find decorating ideas for your room and table, activity and game suggestions and party food ideas.
Cheerleader Party Decorating Ideas:
Balloons and streamers...the basic decorating stand-bys...are always an inexpensive and easy way to turn any room into a festive birthday party. Attach streamers from center of ceiling to each corner of the room. Use two colors and twist streamers for effect. Or...attach short streamers to doorways or down walls. Use plenty of pink and purple balloons. Tie in bunches of 3 around room and/or attach one balloon to the back of each chair at the table. Use extra balloons on the "birthday" chair. Give each child a balloon to take home after the party.
The easiest way to bring out any party theme is with the paper products for your table. Decorate with Let's Cheer theme tablecover, plates, napkins and cups. Add plates or napkins in solid colors if desired. For the center of the table use a theme centerpiece or have the birthday cake on display and/or a bunch of balloons. Have each child a blowout and favor pack.

Serve finger foods that are easy and fun for children and keep it simple. Girls love small party sandwiches and dainty cookies. Add some small snacks like potato chips, cheese cubes and mini chocolate chip cookies. Serve party food on Let's Cheer theme paper products for easy clean up!
The Birthday Cake!
Make your own theme cake using a
Pennant Cake Pan (if you have the time and talent). Last resort...order a theme cake from your local bakery or grocery store. BE SURE TO ORDER EARLY!
