wrestling theme Decorations and Party Supplies
As the wrestlers arrive, greet them with a wrestling party theme banner dedicated to the birthday boy or girl! Make your entrance stand out even more with groupings of black, red, and orange balloons. Put the bunches in corners, on the sign-in table, and around the buffet to highlight your party hot spots. Include a few of these other decorating tips to make your venue worthy of WWE Smackdown!

  • Lifesize Wrestler Cutout - Make a great move for your party by ordering a personalized wrestler cutout of the guest of honor!  Friends of the birthday boy will love posing for pics with this muscular superstar!  We also have a fun Wrestler Photo Op alternative, too!
  • WWE Masks - Set out colorful masks which little wrestlers can wear. It's easy and fun to decorate your guests!
  • WWE Ring - Set up a "ring" so kids can rumble!  Stack four dowel rods in grass to form a square and use red and black crepe paper as "ropes".  If you have a large crowd, set them up all over your yard.  Add some inflatable punching gloves to each ring so it's easy to smackdown!
  • WWE Streamers - Paper streamers in black, red, and white match the party's color scheme.  Hang theme everywhere - over your buffet, in doorways and ceilings, and along railings.
After your party space is ready for the main event, make sure to decorate the tables and serve food that fits the theme, too!
 
wrestling Table Decorations and Menu
Extreme wrestlers have extreme appetites, so have some wrestling theme menu items that will fill the stomachs of your most ferocious fighters and decorate the tables to get ready for Wrestlemania! Don't forget to name different foods after famous professional wrestlers.
 
Wrestling Party Menu:
  • Hulk Hoagies - Serve cold cut sandwiches complete with a sandwich pick with a picture of Hulk Hogan.
  • Zigs in a Blanket - A classic appetizer gives a nod to Zig Zag, a Wrestlemania favorite.
  • Stone Cold Ice Cream Sundae- Make sure to set out a bunch of fixins' and syrups!
  • Santino's Specialty - Serve some Italian classics, pizza and pasta!  
  • John Cena Salad - Every strong wrestler needs their vegetables!
  • People's Elbow Mac and Cheese - A nod to one of The Rock's signature move.
  • The Main Event - Of course, the cake!
  • Your wrestlers might work up a sweat, so wrap bottles in some personalized wrestling party water bottle labels!
 Wrestling Party Table Decorations:
  • WWE Paper Goods - These WWE dinner plates, dessert plates, lunch napkins, and beverage napkins have all of your little wrestler's favorite legends.  Make sure to have all of these stars at your party!
  • WWE Party Cups - Have a wrestling paper cup waiting at each place setting.  Or give each little wrestler a WWE plastic cup filled with candy and toys as an unforgettable take home favor!
  • Wrestling Ring Centerpieces - Cover boxes with white craft paper, and fashion mini wrestling rings! Add a WWE logo to the center of the ring, dowel rod posts, and red string for ropes.  Pose wrestling action figures in each centerpiece, too!
  • WWE Wrestler Table Numbers - Dedicate each table to a famous WWE wrestler. Include a picture and an action figure of each one along with the table number.
  • WWE Favor Boxes - Of course, there's no better way to keep the kids entertained than with a smashin' favor box.  Have one waiting at each place setting for each guest to tackle!
  • WWE Rubber Bracelets - Use a rubber bracelet as a napkin ring.  Works as a great themed favor, too!
After feeding the hungry wrestlers, keep them entertained with a variety of fun WWE theme party games!
 

wrestling theme party games
When the kids arrive, they'll be ready to rumble, so make sure you provide safe wrestling games and activities to keep the party hoppin'!  One priority of the party should be to watch the birthday boy or girl's favorite wrestling match up. Make sure to provide plush seating as well as snacks for guests to munch on. 

You might also hand out judging cards to each child (give them cards numbered 1-5). Have them judge each wrestler's moves and vote for a winner at the end of the match.  Try some of these other fun games to keep the kiddos entertained:

  • Set up a thumb wrestling station where the kids battle each other to be the thumb champion!  Have a ladder where kids can keep track of who's facing who, and have a "Championship Game" where the final thumb wrestlers face off. 
  • Rent a Blow Up Sumo Suits so guests can duke it out in the ring! Everyone will be lining up to get a change to wrestle during this fun game. If sumo suits aren't your style, try blow up punching gloves that the kids can use outside.
  • Cut wrestling champ belts from construction paper, which guests can decorate!  This fun craft serves double duty as an activity and favor!
  • Have an adult run a face painting station where the kids can suit up! Expect a few mini Stings and Demolitions to be running around.  These WWE tattoos are an easy add-on as well!
  • Name that Wrestler! Display 10-15 pictures famous wrestlers and have players guess who is who on an answer sheet. Give the player with the most correct answers a prize!
After the winners have received their champ belts, make sure to send everyone home with something to remember The Main Event!
