A Mini Golf Birthday Bash

My not so little D turned 8 last week. He wanted to have a mini golf birthday party. The closest mini golf place was about 30 minutes away from our place.. I worried people were not going to want to make the 30 minute plus drive. It was in the end of June so I worried about the heat.

We booked an evening time for the party.. the mini golf place called SwingTime offered us a mini golf and arcade package. They would order the food.. provide popcorn and drinks..

I sent out the invitations using Paperless Post. I have mentioned them before on the blog and this is my third time using them to send out invites and I love how seamless the process is, how cute the cards are.

As usual waiting for the RSVP's is the most watching water come to a boil type job.. but surprisingly this time people replied quickly.. but that wasn't necessarily a good thing since all the replies where regrets. Most people had immediate vacation plans :(


The favors were a golf club and ball along with a packet of wikki sticks. Have you heard of these..  H loves them.

I got cupcakes from Wegmans, I just learned they use all natural dyes in their baking.. makes me love them even more



Little golf ball rings as cupcake toppers.. another surprising fact, there is not enough party stuff out there for a golf party..

Once the kids arrived they began to play..





They kids went through the 18 holes so fast we had them go through another 18 as well.. the place thankfully had two courses. 

And then it was time for food..


and then each kid got a little cup full of coin to play at the arcade.




He was so happy.. :)

Here's a look back at some of his previous birthdays

  1. We went to a mini golf party that was indoor...a lot of fun! I am too don't like to host parties at places that are far for the guests, but we don't have many options nearby. Happy birthday to D!

  35. What a great party. Yeah, the nearest miniature golf is 30 minutes away from us also. The youngest went to a party there and loved the driving arcade game. I plan to take them there this summer.
