Hockey Party Decorations & Food

Use colors of your favorite hockey team's uniforms as inspiration for your Hockey party supplies and decorations. Take a look at some of our suggestions for Hockey decorations to get started:

  • Cut out the shape of hockey masks, pucks and sticks out of construction paper and hang them around the party area. You can also create hockey wall decorations with fun sports sayings like "Go [favorite team name]!" or the logos of your favorite hockey teams.
  • Group bunches of latex and hockey balloons together and weigh them down with balloon weights or sports equipment.
  • Hang a personalized banner above the food table or by the entrance.
  • Set up a hockey rink in your backyard or driveway using nets, sports cones and sidewalk chalk. Play a game of street hockey as a high-energy activity before food.
  • Plan your hockey party to take place during a hockey game. Turn the game on in the background and root for your favorite team!

Hockey Party Decorations

It can be fun to prepare and serve party food that fits your theme. For a Hockey Party, try foods as cold as the ice rink or foods that resemble hockey gear!
  • Label traditional party foods with fun names. Serve treats that match your favorite hockey team. Try "Devils' Food Cake," or "Flyers Chicken Wings."
  • Decorate a rectangular sheet cake to look like a hockey rink using red, white and blue frosting. Place small hockey player decorations on top of the hockey cake.
  • Dip chocolate creme cookies in melted chocolate to create "hockey puck" cookies.
  • Mold rice cereal treats around the ends of pretzel rods to create hockey stick shapes. You can dip the rice cereal treat end of the stick into multi-colored melting chocolates.

Hockey Party Favors

Send your hockey party guests home with a smile with hockey favors such as:

  • Hockey favors and candy
  • Hockey personalized items
  • Sports trophies and toys
  • Hockey equipment
  • Water bottles and sports accessories
