Australian Open Party with Cost Plus World Market

Thank you Cost Plus World Market  for sponsoring our Australian Open Party. 
All ideas and opinions are 100% my own.

We are getting into the swing of things by celebrating the Australian Open! Often times tennis is overlooked as a great sport for kids, usually overshadowed by softball and soccer. Tennis has wonderful benefits and is found to help improve grades, concentration and focus.

I wanted to get kids excited about tennis by having our very own mini Australian Open bash. 
We dined on lots of delicious Australian food  and  Australian treats and even tried our hand at some table tennis.  Check out the party below and be sure to find out how you can win a trip to Australia at the end of the post! 


The kids loved trying out different foods from another country. Take a look at some of the snacks they nibbled on. So yummy!


There were lots of treats to choose from like Aznac biscuits, Tim Tams, cheese and crackers and an assortment of licorice.

Don't you love when something is cute AND helpful? These darling chalkboard picks looked adorable and served a purpose. They were perfectly tucked into the delicious snacks while letting the guests know what they're about to bite into.






Gotta have Bundaberg root beer! This is not your typical root beer. It has sarsparilla root, vanilla bean, licorice and molasses and MAN was it good. This was more for the parents to try and it was quite the hit. 


Oh yes we did! We tried a vegemite sandwich!  We toasted bread, buttered it and then spread a thin layer of vegemite across the toast. I loved how the kids were so eager to try something new. 


Playing table tennis can be quite the workout for little ones! It was wonderful to have this water dispenser handy so the kids could just help themselves to a drink when they got thirsty. 


Party supplies are a must for any party and this banner was quick and easy to put together. I simply painted each piece red and white, let it dry and hung it above the snack table. 


The little guests had a blast playing table tennis with each other. They were each able to take home their own table tennis set as a party favor. I dressed up mini kraft bags with vintage inspired tennis paper and tied a little ribbon to the handle. The kids loved their adorable favors! 



These darling white scalloped cake stands doubled as serving dishes at our party. They come in three different sizes and I love the sweet simplicity of the design. I can't wait to use them again!

We loved learning a bit about Australia and tennis at our party. I hope it inspired the little ones to become interested in playing tennis as well as learning about other parts of the world. We're so excited to watch the Australian Open!
