Cheerleading Theme Party

Gimme a C.  Gimme an H. Double the E. Gimme a R. Gimme a GIRL. What’ve you got? The makings for the perfect cheerleading party or practice event! Cheerleaders are fun, full of energy and spirit, and make great role models. Plus, they always get the cute boys! A cheerleading theme party will channel all that spirit and high-energy and fun.

cheerleading party invitations
Notify all the girls on your squad that you’re going to have a really fun party with a personalized cheerleading invitation. Tell the girls to be prepared by practicing your favorite cheers and compete with their favorite cheer, for fabulous prizes!

cheerleading party decorations
Let your pride and spirit show! Decorate with pink, purple, lavender and white balloons or choose colors based on your school. Decorate the squad with ribbon and streamers, batons and pom-poms of your team’s colors!  We love these cheerleading theme decorations:
And, don't forget! Football theme decorations always work well for a cheerleading party!

cheerleading party table decorations and menu
Choose a table cloth in a solid color with a complementary color for the paper products and plastic ware. We love using whistles as napkin rings. Place stadium plastic cups in your team colors on the table—one for each girl—filled with nuts, candy, funtoos, etc. Wrap with cellophane and tie with ribbon in your colors for party favors to take home! You can also get personalized sports water bottle labels from Party411. All that working out will make the girls thrilled to have the water and when they see their team’s name and colors on it, they’ll shout out with delight. (That is, if they have voices left!)
 
For the centerpiece, have an inverted megaphone with balloon bouquets in team colors rising out of the center. You can add a Mylar football, soccer or basketball balloon to the center of the bouquet for extra pizzazz. We love this cheerleading theme balloon weight.  Scatter pom poms on the table for extra color.

After the practice session and contests (see Activities below), the girls will be starved and thirsty! Serve pizza in addition to lots of veggies and fruit. Serve munching popcorn in small plastic megaphones on the tables.

cheerleading party games and Activities
Prior to practice, have the girls decorate their faces with face tattoos, face paint and glitter and let them know there will be prizes for the one that shows the most spirit and creativity. Hold your usual practice. Then…the real fun begins.
 
Grab some microphones and have each girl perform their favorite cheer. Judging will be done on originality and difficulty. After each performance, play the cheer back and listen to the hoots and howls! Have a panel of judges (or the girls) rate each on a scale of 1 to 10 (like in the Olympics).
 
Lots of fabulous prizes can be awarded, spirit T-Shirts, hanging medals on ribbons and sport award medals to team spirit kazoos, pompoms, megaphones, etc.
 
cheerleading Party Favors
In addition to the cellophane-wrapped sports cups, have Party411 create personalized sports candy bar wrappers with your team's favorite cheer on them. Have plenty of extra plastic megaphones and pom-poms on hand for the girls to practice their favorite cheers and to cheer their favorites on to victory in competitions.
 
These also make good party favors:
