The best way to have a bowling party is to actually go to the bowling alley to do so. Here are some tips and ideas to host a fun bowling party!
Call the bowling alley plenty of time prior to the party date to reserve lanes and let them know it is for a birthday party. Sometimes they will have birthday party packages.
Ask bowling alley what their rules are for decorations and food items that you can bring in.
For invitations, cut several circles out of poster board or construction paper. Add party info and draw on three (finger holes)... or order custom bowling party invitations from Tiny Prints:

If allowed, bring in a huge covered Tupperware bowl with Chex Mix or Popcorn with m&ms.
Don't forget to bring a plastic tablecover, paper plates, plastic flatware, and bottled water.
Decorate in shades of blue, white, red, and black
- Ask your child to choose a name for his bowling buddies team. Order or make custom tee shirts or custom bowling shirts with a bowling ball and team name to hand out for party favors. Also, this is a good way to keep track of small party guests at the bowling alley.
- If you can decorate, bring a custom banner with the team's name and birthday child's name also.
- Make centerpiece with helium balloons tied to a bowling pin (ask if bowling alley has used ones for sale)
