Are you thinking of throwing a party? A perfect party means perfect planning and timing. With so much to organize, planning a party can be a stressful affair. Therefore, it is essential to pre-plan for the party because it will save you money, time, and frustrations on the day of the party.
Let’s face it. Having party themes is fun and brings out the creative side of the people attending it. However, a party theme can either make or break a party if not properly organized. Even though the boxing-themed party is fun, it also requires a lot of input because it affects food, attire, and even entertainment.
The good thing about boxing is that it is not seasonal. Therefore, you can have a knockout boxing party at any time of the year and make a lifetime of memories. Not prepared to get in the ring to plan your party? Don’t throw in the towel yet. With proper planning and creativity, your party will be the real deal and talk of the town. Here are a few boxing party ideas for the fiercest themed party ever.
Boxing Party Ideas begin with the Party Invitation
You should ensure that you send out invites about three weeks before the party. This will give people enough time to avoid making different plans. You can add a little touch by having personalized invitations for your special occasion. The invitations can have event details such as time, date, location, RSVP date, dress code, and if invitees may bring guests or not.
The one rule of fight club is don’t talk about fight club. Instead, send out invitations that look like tickets to the real boxing event. You can also send invitations in the form of flyers. You can write ‘get ready to rumble; john is turning 10’ for a birthday party. You can also use it for a gender reveal party. The flyer may read, ‘it’s a gender reveal knockout, team pink versus team blue.’ With such amusing invitations, your guests will be ready to rumble.
Does the venue match your party theme? Whichever venue you choose, be sure that it can be transformed to fit well with your theme. The space available for your party dramatically affects the number of guests, entertainment, and party theme. If it is within your budget, you can opt to rent a space, or if you are on a tight budget, you can have the party at your home to save the money.
For a boxing-themed party, you can take it a notch higher by renting out a real boxing ring. It can be a training ring with all the boxing props. This proves to be an added advantage because the venue provides you with the needed decors, hence saving you the hassle. If you have another venue, you can get creative and DIY the place to match the boxing theme that you desire.
This is where all the fun begins. Do you want to go all out or the simple way? When picking out decorations, ensure that they match your party theme. To save money, you can borrow decorations from other peoples’ parties. You then DIY them to fit your personal preference.
Balloons are a classic party décor item. However, you can hang the red balloons upside down to represent a speedball. Besides, the real boxing gloves may be used as a centerpiece. For more styling, you can add customized billboard graphics, banners, pops of colors and pictures of boxing legends and favorites.
Paper decorations can also be super stylish. You don’t need to be a creative genius to make incredible decorations. A useful tip is to use a few colors for your decorations to make your party look perfectly color-coordinated.
Make it a priority to let your guests know the dressing code for the party. When dressing up for a themed party, it is best to strive to have every detail related to the theme. Thankfully, there are many boxing Halloween costumes that can be used for the boxing theme party. From the classic Everlast appearance to oversized boxing gloves and belts.
Besides, you can dress your family in boxing robes and other boxing attires such as the boxers. Making your own homemade boxing belts makes everyone look like a champion. If you want some more fun, go ahead and use make up for more effects. For instance, use black mascara to paint a black eye.
A party favor is a small gift given to party guests as a gesture of thanks or to aid the occasion. They include party hats, glow sticks, crackers, blowouts (rolled up paper tube that unrolls when blown into), among others. The party favors may also facilitate party games. In a boxing party, a boxing glove pop pen helps in delivering a pop punch. Use the sucker punch candies to display boxing gloves with a knockout taste.
You can also make use of the boxing rubber bands, gloves, and boxers that glow in the dark. Furthermore, trophies, jump ropes, and mini boxing glove keychains are fantastic party favors. If you are a fan of boxing, then you may know that Sugar Ray Robinson used a body punch known as the candy cane. You can tape a quote from sugar ray to the candy cane.
Boxing Party Food
Food is the heart of any party. Parties are a time to eat, drink, and be merry. With a variety of options available, you can never go wrong with food. Plan your party food in advance and ensure you have enough to feed everyone. Everything from cups to serving platters should match the theme.
When considering boxing party ideas, food is one of the essential things. Wrap up your water bottles using winner medals and ribbons. Another idea is to make boxing glove cookies. Use a mitten cookie cutter to make the cookies. Furthermore, you can make a candy buffet by filling the trophies with candies of different colors. Knock out an easy dessert. You could make a boxing ring by using pretzels dipped in chocolate and licorice laces.
Boxing Party Games
Ensure that your guests have a great time by lining up fun games and activities for the party. This is where the party favors come to play. Put the championship belts on the line and start the games. First, boxing with chocolate. This is a party game that requires one to wear boxing gloves and then eat frozen chocolate using a fork and a knife. You can also fix a time limit.
The second game is shadowboxing. Guests can take turns stepping in the ring and throwing jabs in air. They can also take turns to spar with a professional boxer in the ring. Another perfect game for a boxing party is taking a jab. In this game, each guest has to get in the ring and give a knock-knock joke. Other games include jump house, rock ‘em sock’ em robots.
Music plays a big part when it comes to entertainment at a party. Your choice of music can give hype to your crowd or bore the mood of the party. Whether you are the Dj or you are hiring a professional DJ with turntables, have a prepared music playlist ready. For a boxing-themed party, you want your guests to be pumped up and ready to party like its 1990’s.
Hip-hop, pop music, electric, or any song about boxers is a perfect pick. All these further depends on who your guests are. Some of my favorite songs include Thunderstruck, Eminem Lose Yourself, LL Cool J Mama Said Knock You Out, and Lupe Fiasco The Champ Is Here, among others.
For a boxing theme party, the perfect gift would be boxing gifts. You can also personalize the gifts by using boxing theme gift wrappers. Some great presents include real boxing gloves, a boxing punching bag with a heavy bag hanger. This is a practical gift as it offers a place to train. Another perfect gift is a real speedbag that helps to gain quick punch ability. The ideal gift depends on the purpose of the party.
Boxing Party Cake
A cake is the centerpiece of every party. A party is incomplete without a cake. Order your cake a few weeks in advance. If you are making your own, be sure to get it ready on time. For your boxing theme party, you can bake a glove shaped cake or a ring-shaped one.
You can also have a mother of all boxing cakes by having a three-tiered cake. The champion cake should feature the boxing ring, the championship belt, and a boxing action figure. That will be enough to knock breath off your guests.
