Ultimate Frisbee Party

When your Ultimate Frisbee-lovin' son is about to turn 15...and you need a party theme he'll actually appreciate...well, you know what to do.

First of all, if you were not aware that Ultimate Frisbee is a sport, I must tell you that it is in fact a sport with it's own culture, language and rules.  There are games, tournaments, select teams, college teams, professional teams and even a SOTG 'Spirit of the Game' expectations.  There is a rumor out there that Ultimate will possibly become an Olympic sport as well?  So on your next walk in the park, watch out for flying discs overhead.  And by the way, discs are the correct term for frisbees...if you really want to sound like you know what you're talking about.

My son joined the local high school Ultimate team last fall and found his calling.  He quit all other sports to just focus on one.  Our entire family (grandparents included) have had a steep learning curve this year in Ultimate...this isn't disc golf!

OK, back to the party.Frisbees...I mean discs, were the focal point. I chose blue and yellow, because those were the color of discs that I found.  I made printables to tape on the front of each disc. (Scroll down to end of post if you'd like to print out your own.)

Blue and yellow crepe paper, curling ribbon and balloons helped carry the color theme.  My son added his own special white discs to the decor.  Apparently Ultimate games and practices are always played with white discs.

...for labeling snacks.
I chose round shaped snacks to resemble discs.

Ritz crackers, round pretzels and Funyuns onion rings filled up the glass containers.

I added the yellow Laffy Taffy because it was the perfect color,

Instead of making one cake, I made individual Ultra Star disc cakes for each guest.  According to my son, Ultra Star discs are the best out there.

I made yellow cakes with rich chocolate frosting, my son's favorite. To make the stars, I used a paper stencil and poured yellow sugar crystals onto it.

The boys were so excited to have their very own cakes to eat!

And of course, every party needs a photo booth.  Simple crepe paper taped up makes an easy, colorful back drop.

So I bet you're wondering what a group of 15 year olds do at a party nowadays?  



My son had every minute planned with a Mario Cart Wii Competition, NERF gun battle, Laser Tag, Basketball Shootout and of course some frisbee thrown in!
