Needing birthday party inspiration? Summer is the perfect time to come up with unique party ideas, and this one is a keeper. The Backyard Popsicle Soccer Party. Popsicle sent us a rockin’ duffle bag filled with pylons, soccer ball, gloves for the keeper (goalie) and water bottles. Oh… and gift certificates for popsicles. And it gave us an excellent reason to make the husband cut the grass. Devious. We invited kids with their parents and a couple of cute British soccer coaches doing Challenger Sports Camps in our area. (Just for the story – really). Voila… we had a party.
