David Makes the Goal!

Soccer is a big thing in our house, so when David's mom Debbie approached me about helping out with their upcoming Soccer themed Bar Mitzvah, it was an easy YES!  However, Soccer is a tougher theme than expected. How do you come up with a sophisticated centerpeice and other than soccer balls, what other layers do you add in? Soccer is not a sport that has a ton of gear, I mean, there is a ball and a goal, that's it.  It is moment's like this, one is so thankful for Pinterest.  We found some great inspiration and got to work.

 

This was our first attempt at growing grass.  1 lb of Hard Red Winter Wheat seeds from the bulk section of Whole Foods. 

 

 

Day 3- it literally grows before your eyes!  

Once we knew it would take 5-7days to get the grass exactly the heighth we wanted, we planted directly in the vases.  It was pretty hot outside, so we misted throughout the day, trying not to get the soil too wet nor allowing it to get too dry.

Here you have it! It is a sophisticated soccer themed centerpiece. Each table had a corresponding table card with a team ball.  At the end of the night, the kids checked under there chair to see if they had the winning star.  Winners got to take home the game ball of their choice.  Clever right?

There were a few other details we tackled as well...

Place cards were tickets to David's favorite teams.

Simple is sometimes sweet.  Avery Labels were used on the candy bags...  Like the product number I left there for you?  LOL

Fun party, fun night...love to be a part of these milestones.
