Cooper’s 1st Birthday Golf Par-Tee


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 β€œTEES” – 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!

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!

Where did you get the green plants for the centerpieces?

Was looking for answers here- so thought I’d share. I was trying to glue the lanterns on to the horns. No luck! So, I used a rubber band on the small hole- end of the lantern, looped over the support wire. I Tied the rubber band to a string which I then fed down through the horn and then tied it around the mouthpiece end. This tie will be covered when you set it up. I’m using old white plastic planters, free from Lowes, filled with small rocks to keep them standing upright, and then covering the rocks with Green shredded paper like you might use in an Easter basket.

Love the centerpieces, but I have the same question: How do you attach the tissue balls to horn? I tried spray glue and elmer's glue. Neither held it. If anyone else has done this, please email me:
