These pictures were taken before we added football helmets and other game items....so get creative and use what you have. By also using the trophies as decorations, this table didn't cost anything except for the balloons!
We used cardboard boxes to build a backdrop and to stuff jerseys as decor. Also pinned jersey's on the front of the tables. See picture. Hope this gives you ideas.
I helped decorate a Baseball banquet in which we used Red Gerber daisies, tall cyclinders filled with black bird seed with a red tulle bow tied in the middle with silver sprays coming out of the middle of the cyclinder and 10 lb vegatable cans wrapped in red wrapping paper topped with black and white crinkle paper. We also used about 100 votives (not on the players tables, boys will be boys).
Have you considered covering the tables with outdoor grass carpet? You can get it at home improvement stores. I've used this for sporting events. It is fun, different and reusable. Check out Oriental Trading Company online for their inflatable baseballs (beach ball size & $9.95/dz) - they would be cute hung from the ceiling like paper lanterns. Or buy inexpensive white paper lanterns on Ebay and paint red lines for stitching. Or hang paper lanterns in your school colors. Oriental Trading Co. also has these broken glass baseball clings for $7.95/dz. They would be fun stuck to glass vases filled with flowers that match your theme colors. They are 3 dimensional. It would add a bit of humor to the party. Finally, consider using pendants in your decor. Good luck!

The volleyball banquet that I hosted was in November - I went with a fall theme. I decorated the tables with burlap, white table clothes. Center pieces were white candes in glass holders. I sprinkled fall leaves as confetti on the tables. I had hay as my main display decorated with pumkins & white lights. The hightlight was a chocolate fountain...everyone went crazy!!!! Everything looked very elegant. Even the coach's were very impressed!! Also, as a gift to the coach the team pitched in to purchase a v-ball with the team picture on it and each girl signed the ball! It sure was a success!!
If anyone has any ideas for a Sports Banquet, please let me know.

I am planning a volleyball/soccer sports banquet. Any ideas on how to decorate the tables? I would like to incorporate an actual net as the table cloth but do not know quite how to pull it all together. Any suggestions?
