You've planned a football birthday party for your sports fan. Everything flows in the football theme from the food to the decorations. Using football words and phrases on the invitation lets guests know that it will be a football-themed birthday party and enhances the football theme. Wording football birthday party invitations can easily be done by substituting standard invitation words with football terminology.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Start with your invitation title or heading. "Are you ready for some football?" is a popular football saying and makes a good beginning for your invitation. Another option is to use the birthday person's name and age in the heading with a football term such as "Help Jacob Kick Off His 6th Birthday."

  2. 2

    Replace common invitation words pertaining to the date, time and location of the party with football-related words. "Game day" easily replaces "date." Use "game time" or "kickoff time" to announce the party's time. If the party is at your house, you can use "Jacob's home field" as the party location. If the party is at an outside location, you can say, "This is an away game and the party will be held at _." For the R.S.V.P. information, say something like, "Call Coach Smith at 555-555-5555 to let her know if you'll be playing in the game that day."

  3. 3

    Include any additional information guests need to know. If you require that they wear football jerseys or team shirts, let them know by putting it on the invitation. "Uniforms are required, so please suit up before game time and wear your favourite team shirt or colours" is one example of how you could let them know.

  4. 4

    Close the invitation with a sentence like, "This party will be a touchdown if you attend" or "Don't sit on the sidelines for this party."

  5. 5

    Incorporate other common football words and phrases on the invitation, if possible, like "blitz," "goal," "interception" or "touchdown."
