Cheerleader Party Decorations
Fill your party space with school spirit! Here are some fun and creative ideas for cheerleading party decorations...
- As each guest enters the party area, give them two shoe poms to tie to their shoes and ribbons to tie in their hair. Then, paint a school mascot or cheer slogan on their cheeks with a Homemade Face Paint Recipe.
- Cut large megaphones and school pennant shapes out of construction paper and write a cheer slogan on each one. Try “Go! Fight! Win!”, “Team Captain”, “[mascot]s Rock!”, or “Beat Those [opposing mascot]s!” to start. Tape these signs on the walls of the party area.
- Balloons and streamers are a must-have at any party! Tie groups of balloons in your child’s school colors to the backs of chairs, float them up from tables, or use them to mark doorways. Star-shaped Mylar balloons also add a festive touch, as do using pom-poms as balloon weights.
- If your child’s school mascot is something traditional – such as a wildcat, bulldog, or bear – set up some stuffed animals that match the mascot as decorations.
- Hang fun cheerleading banners on the walls.
- Lay down mats or padding in one area of the party space so your guests can safely practice routines and cheerleading moves.
Cheerleader Party Food Ideas
If you have the time to make some cheer-tastic treats, consider these ideas:
- Set up a sign by the food table that says “Concession Stand”. You may even want to make a food board that lists all the food available, and have an adult stand at the table and serve each guest the food that they order.
- Make edible megaphones by cutting ½ inch off the pointed end of a sugar cone. Frost the cone in white frosting and write your child’s school abbreviation (i.e. EHS) in decorator icing on one side.
- Serve popcorn in traditional popcorn bags for an “on the bleachers” type of snack. Let your guests add toppings of cinnamon, powdered cheese, salt & pepper, or chocolate sprinkles.
- Serve soda, juice, punch, or sports drinks in sports water bottles.
- Serve coconut snowballs and bugles, but call them “pom-poms” and “megaphones” instead.
- Bake homemade pretzels in the shape of the letter of your child’s first name, or the letters in the abbreviation of your child’s school.
