4 – For your entryway, consider displaying bowling pins made from foam board cutouts, which can be bought from the Dollar Store. Attach red scrapbook paper to create the pins’ design and keep them standing upright by taping them to tin cans. What a clever idea via Invite and Delight!

5 – When you’re too busy to make your own party food, ordering a packaged meal not only saves time, but also gives you enough energy left over to host the party. This bowling themed buffet table consisting of pizza, pretzels, Caesar salad, and bruschetta is a perfect example that we saw on the blog of Talk of the House.
