Every gymnast at some point in her life begs for a gymnastics birthday party. The trick is turning your house into a gym or sprucing up the local gymnastics club. If you haven’t fulfilled your daughter’s dream of celebrating her birth and her sport together (or if she’s begging for a round two) the challenge just got a whole lot easier!
Adria Ruff, one of the designers of Anders Ruff Custom Designs hosted a gymnastics themed birthday party for her daughter! Why is this such great news for gym moms (or coaches hosting a team party)? It means the talented party planner did all of the work for us!
The Anders Ruff party included colorful gymnastics-themed printables (available here), fantastic party favor ideas (read about them here) and creative guest activities, making the event a perfect 10.0. Pictured above are the score cards Anders Ruff created for the “birthday meet” (learn how it works here).
Adria incorporated traditional gymnastics meet elements like ribbons, trophies, and medals, but in a fun and vibrant color pallet. My favorite? The ribbon banner. There is a close-up picture on her blog that really shows off it’s sparkle!
Of course the most obvious place to host a gymnastics party is at your local gym. Most clubs provide coach instructed activities, monitored play time, and a party space for cake and presents. But if you’re looking to save money, Adria shows us that an at-home gymnastics party can also be a success! If you don’t already own practice mats or a balance beam, the equipment can double as the perfect gift and party activity!
