We are having an end of season soccer banquet. I am looking for ideas for centerpieces. Our colors are blue and white. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

We just had our Girls H2O Polo banquet. We used small fish tanks (Big Lots' $1.00 each), black small rocks and gold fish (orange and black are our school colors). My husband painted sports easter eggs (the "eggs" were basketball) to make them look like h20 polo balls, put small rocks inside to keep them at the bottom of the tanks, and hot glued a piece of wire with a laminated picture of each player holding a ball ready to shoot. It was a success and each girl took their fish tank home. I also baked cookies and cupcakes decorated as h20 polo balls. The cup cakes also had a picture of each player. Hope that helps.

Try making soccer ball chocolate lollipops and arranging them with some inexpensive silk flowers.
Get some baskets from a dollar store, and make flower arrangements with the lollipops. They will turn out beautiful and delicious. (04/14/2004)
Last year we collected old soccer cleats from the boys and girls and spray painted them silver. We arranged them on a square of "turf" and filled them with an arrangement of balloons and tinsel like pieces. Then we sprinkled the table with blue and silver candy and confetti and called it a day (Our colors were silver and blue, it could be done with any colors). It was really cute. (03/08/2007)
We cut the top out of the soccer ball and added tissue paper and placed a potted flowering plant inside. Very cute. (10/21/2008)
