This post is sponsored but all of the ideas are my own. Tennis is a game that has been a part of my life since I was a kid. To be honest, I was never any good, BUT my older brother was amazing. I grew up playing against the garage door in hope of one day being able to beat him. That never happened. I loved to go to his matches and tournaments where I would play with friends outside the fences and eat delicious snacks that my mom packed. As an adult, I love to watch the game! Everyone in our family owns a racket and some of us are better than others. That doesn’t stop up from having a great time on the neighborhood courts! The Australian Open is coming up in a few weeks. I gathered up a few things from my favorite store, World Market, to get the party started.
If you want to decorate, what better way than with rackets and balls. I tied the rackets together with World Market ribbon and placed them in a World Market basket full of tennis balls.
There are tons and tons of great tennis quotes. This one is my favorite from a tennis player I think. I printed the quotes and then framed them in World Market frames.
You can also pick up a bag of Australian licorice and add it to sugar cookies. I used green apple but there is a variety of flavors to choose from!
Have you ever had drinks by Bunderberg. Personally, I am huge fan of the Lemon, Lime & Bitters (best mixed with bourbon) but my kiddos love the Ginger Beer. They like it with ice cream in it as a float!
Every party needs a goodie bag to send home with your guests. World Market has the perfect size handle bag to fit a Bundabeer Ginger Beer, a package of TimTams and a tennis ball. Tie it up with World Market’s green raffia and Ta Da…
