A Project For

First Birthday




New Hampshire


A golf themed birthday party for our son, Cooper.

Design Inspiration

GOLF! We are a family of golfers and needed to have this December birthday indoors. We chose a local golf course as our location, and the theme blossomed from there.

Decorating Style

Modern, preppy, contemporary, designer

Project Details

Everything was DIY for this project. I gathered ideas from everywhere and enlisted the help for friends and family to pull it all together.

I made party favors with toy golf club sets for each child in attendance. I also ordered custom golf tees as take home gifts for the adults.

The centerpieces were the most fun part to create, I used a combination of Vuvuzelas and paper party balls to create the look of a giant golf ball on the tee.

I also had all of the food named within the golf theme. Not all of it is pictured here, but we had:

Sand-Wedges - Assorted Mini Sandwiches & Wraps

Eagles - Buffalo wings

Chip Shots - Chips

Greens in Regulation - Caesar Salad

Cheese WEDGES – Cheese plates

Mac and “TEES” – Mac and Cheese

Birdies – Chicken Nuggets

Sand Trap – Powdered Donut Holes on Brown Sugar

Get in the CUPcakes

Ball Markers – Golf themed cookies

Worm Burners - "Worms in Dirt"

..and more!

All of the paper products were made by:

And the cake stands by (myself):

I am very fortunate to have very crafty friends!




Favorite Items

Besides the guest of honor, the centerpieces are my favorite part of the party!


Look for inspiration everywhere and get creative with your decor!


  1. 1
  2. 2

    You did a Fabulous job with the decor! How did you get the vuvuzelas to stay upright and not collapse?

  3. 3

    I have the vuvuzelas, potted grass & white lanterns for a golf party in November. How do I attach & secure all the parts most effectively?

  4. 4

    I want to do the golf tees for my son’s birthday party and am struggling on how to secure the vuvuzuela in the pot. Did you pot the grass yourself or buy it somewhere?
