Bowling Party

A blogger friend, Short Southern Momma , recently shared on twitter, that her daughter Macy had decided she wanted to have her Birthday party at a bowling ally. My first thoughts were "how does one decorate for a bowling themed party" "what can the favors be" Well, I am sure it comes to no surprise, that I did a little internet "research" and it looks like the party can be totally girly, bowling themed and fun..

1. the invitations- you can create adorable bowling shoes that actually lace up- you can make them in any color.. heck, you could even make pink/purple ones for the girls and blue/green ones for the boys.. OR you can make adorable pin/ball invitations

2. "take aways" for the party.. what about individually packaged bowling ball and pin cookies. Put one of each in a plastic bag, and tie it with a ribbon (in the party colors) on top, and place them in a basket to hand out. You can get the cookie cutter here  and reference my sugar cookie recipe here

3. Outfit for the birthday gal.. You can either go 50's glam, with a poodle skirt, OR you can make her, her own official Birthday gal, bowling shirt...

Some ideas below:... note there are TONS of ideas for Bowling cakes/cupcakes out there..
