It's been a long standing tradition among my friends and I to have a kickball game whenever we have sufficient players and the urge to run around. Since college, we've been splitting into teams and battling it out with a red playground ball. This year, I wanted to spice it up a bit by combining our Kickball Classic with a summer fiesta! The week before, a few of us gathered to tie dye tee shirts to show team pride. We split up the menu so we could make it a potluck. It was so fun and I would love to make it an annual tradition!
Here are some of my favorite details:
- I restyled our IC Piñata from Fiesta Friday with this fun tutorial from Studio DIY. This was such a fun craft- the spray paint worked perfectly and the colorful tissue paper flowers looked so festive as our centerpiece.
- My friend Tommy drew our Kickball Classic logo onto the kickball (yup, this event got its own logo!).
- I also created a tiny piñata out of a cereal box and crumpled tissue paper. The entire back of that little guy was covered in glitter, which got everywhere. No problem with that! The mini-donkey made his way into many photos throughout the night and was a perfect companion to my glittery pie server.
- The bar was easy to set- if it was fuchsia, bright, or glittery, it made center stage.
- We wore our tie-dye tee shirts with pride, and I highly recommend the Tulip One-Step Tie-Dye Kit. It was so simple, and would even be a good fit for kiddo's. I purchased ours at Michaels, but this kit is similar!
