Do you remember going to gymnastic classes as a child? So much fun!
Tumbling, jumping and climbing make it a popular choice of extra curricular activity for lower primary school aged children, and the perfect party option for this age group too.
For the full experience (and safety of your household items) many gymnastics venues offer party packages on the weekend, making it a great option for catering to larger numbers too. You’ll find many provide a room or separate area (and sometimes tables and chairs) for you to set up and bring your own catering, and they’ll take care of the rest. Too easy!
Here is some inspiration to get you started!:

Regardless of where you host your gymnastics party, we’ve done a little search of our LLC partners for some inspiration and general partyware you might need to help bring it all together for you.
Get your guests excited with a fun and creative invitation that will have them bouncing with anticipation. I love the idea of including a photo of the birthday boy or girl as a gymnast!

If hosting it at a venue, you may be limited to the decorations you can bring in and the allocated time to set up, so stick to some fun balloons and coordinated tableware for a quick and easy set up and clean up. Or if at home, go all out and let your imagination run wild! Choose bright primary colours, pink and gold or even metallics just like a gymnast’s leotard!
A styled table with customised cookies, wrapped chocolates or cupcakes with toppers is also an easy way to achieve your look.

Cake and Desserts
Although it is hard to find Gymnastic specific partyware and decorations, theming your cake and desserts to match a Gymnastics theme is a fun way to bring the theme out :
Gymnastics Cookies – Petite Cookies
Gymnastics Cake Topper – A la Roch
Gymnastic Cake Toppers – Glistening Occasions
You know I love a coordinated table – whatever the occasion! This theme allows for plenty of play with creativity, choice of colours and degree of detail, so here’s a few finds to get you started. How cute are these individual boxes?

Here are a range of fun and colourful options for tableware depending on what colour scheme you go for:

When all the gymnasts have tumbled themselves tired and it’s time to go home, what better way to say ‘thanks’ and reward them for their outstanding ability, than to award them all them with their own gold medals or trophies! Kids go wild for these and they’re easy enough to find and be added to a goodie bag with a customised cookie, treats or other personalised gifts.
