Black and white balloons, soccer color themed streamers with the baby’s name spelled out of a banner, balloon arch garland over the main table, and flag banners are all perfect basic decorations that portray the theme brilliantly.

Soccer Theme Tissue Garland

You can also think about tissue paper pom poms hanging from the ceiling in bold black and red colors, and green tablecloths with soccer and goal cutout centerpieces are also fantastic additions to the overall look.

A full soccer field backdrop for the main event table that houses the cake is great for the theme, and little soccer player figurines, baby soccer jerseys, and soccer balls placed throughout the party venue are amazing to pull everything together.

Soccer Baby Shower Food

Food can be especially exciting to put together, as you can really use your imagination incorporating the soccer theme. A soccer ball shaped event cake with a baby soccer player topper, or a plain cake with a cute soccer themed banner, or a full sheet cake in the image of an entire soccer field are both great ideas for fabulous and memorable baby shower cakes.

Likewise, a diaper cake in the same themed fashion can also be put up for the mommy-to-be. Chocolate cupcakes with bright green frosting and bouncing soccer ball toppers, sugar cookies in the shape of soccer flags, and cakepops in the design of little babies in soccer jerseys are as fun as they are delicious ideas.
