Do you have a future NFL or MBA player in your house having a birthday? You may to consider a Sports Star party and hit a home run with these frugal birthday ideas. A sports themed party is one of the most frugal parties that you can throw because chances are you have most of the items needed to entertain your “team” in your house already.
When my son was turning two I knew he would love a sports party and I had many of the decorations for the party in my birthday box , a box where I store clearance finds that I plan to use for upcoming birthday parties. After the Superbowl the previous year I had bought several football themed items on clearance. I found a football shaped cake pan, football bowl, plates, cups, napkins and cupcake toppers that I had bought for very little and were perfect for our little all star’s party. Another great time to buy items on clearance or off season is baseball items after the World Series or racing items after the Daytona 500.
