A huge thanks to our friends at Cost Plus World Market for sponsoring today’s Australian Open Party post! #AusOpen
Hope you’re having an awesome day so far! I am so excited to share this post with you because it’s jam-packed full of fun! Does your family love tennis? Will you be tuning in to watch the Australian Open on the Tennis Channel January 16 through January 29, 2017? If so, you’ll need to head over to World Market to stock up so you can have your own Australian Open Party!
This post will show you exactly how easy it is to put together a fun viewing party with your family. First things first, you’ll need to head to Cost Plus World Market to stock up on Australian food and drinks! Cost Plus World Market has a wide selection to choose from, we stocked up on both sweet and salty snacks for our viewing party.
We set up all of our salty snacks on the countertops, and even picked up a table tennis set to really get into the occasion. It was easy to set-up and under $15, can’t beat that! The boys thought it was so much fun to bounce the ball back and forth across our dining room table.
Tip: If you have little ones playing, be sure to use step stools so they’re able to reach.
We also picked up some Bundaberg beverages so we could have a delicious Australian drink to enjoy! I grabbed a few dimpled glass beer steins to set out near the chilled drinks so we could simply grab a mug, pour, and enjoy! Fun straws were also a must for the occasion so we set out a mason jar full of them!
Tip: Since we don’t let our kiddos drink soda, they used their special mugs for milk. They loved feeling included and special!
No party would be complete without some sweets too, right? I used my favorite bar cart ever – the Aiden Bar Cart to set up and serve a selection of Australian sweets! I used the bottom of the bar cart to store extra beverages and set the whole area up in the corner of the dining room so we could grab a sweet treat in between matches! We discovered some new favorites, and it was the first time any of us had a Tim Tam (my goodness they’re delicious)!
The sweets cart just *might* have been Levi’s favorite part. I wanted to make sure we incorporated a fun activity page for the kids to complete as well. I thought a Seek and Find page would be perfect to complete with the boys because it would help them to identify some of the things they’d be seeing during the Australian Open!

So, be sure to print out the activity sheet for your kiddos to complete too! My boys loved finding the items in the picture and crossing them out.
Tip: This printable is black and white so kids can use it as a coloring page as well!
