  • Bowling: It’s Fun and Good for Your Health

    Bowling is a great way to spend time with friends and family and take part in friendly competition.  Bowling is a sport that anyone can take part in at any age and is something that can accommodate any number of physical limitations.  This makes bowling a wonderful activity that is a great way to bring the family together.

    Bowling has a number of benefits both educational, social and physical that makes bowling an ideal outing:

    • There are millions of dollars in scholarship funds that are given out annually to young bowlers to help them reach their academic goals.
    • Bowling can burn approximately 240 calories per hour.  Regardless of physical ability (there are bowling balls in a wide variety of weights), everyone can get in a little exercise by bowling.
    • The act of picking up the bowling ball and swinging it at the right angle to allow it to roll down the lane toward the 9 pins strengthens and tones the arm, shoulder, chest, and leg muscles.
    • As with any exercise, bowling helps to improve heart and respiratory functions.
    • If you’re one of those people who has trouble keeping their feet on the best of days, give bowling a try as the sport has been shown to help improve balance and movement (swinging around a heavy ball with one hand can certainly help you figure out your center of gravity!)
    • Bowling is great for those who are feeling a little stiff.  The swinging motion inherent in bowling engages your joints and tendons and helps to stretch those active muscles and promote flexibility.
    • If you’re interested in losing a few pounds, try bowling a few times a week.  The act of bowling, as with most exercises is great for speeding up your metabolism.
    • Bowling is a life-time sport.  It is one of the rare sports that players of all ages can take part in. Whether your 8 or 80, bowling is fun activity and a great sport.

    Whether bowling is your idea of a good time or a way to build up your physical activity, bowling is great for everyone.  Bowling Delights knows and appreciates the love of all things bowling and has made it our mission to provide our customers with the best in bowling items and accessories.  Whether you are looking for the perfect gift for the bowling lover in your life or you’re looking for party favors and decorations for your next event, Bowling Delights has you covered with the best and most affordable items on the market.

  • Throwing a Successful Bowling Party for Your Child

    Though it’s not high-tech, throwing your child a party a bowling alley is always a hit.  Kids love bowling. The act of rolling a large ball to hit a bunch of pins is a simple and fun way for kids to burn energy, take part in friendly competition, and have a great time with family and friends.  The best thing about it is that anyone can bowl. If you can roll a ball, you can bowl. This makes a bowling party ideal when you have guests of all ages.

    Most bowling alleys have birthday packages that they sell.  Usually these packages include lanes, shoe rentals, and sometimes food and decorations.  With most bowling alleys you can work out a combination of those things you would like the bowling alley to provide and combine it with those things you would like to provide yourself (for example, if you are providing the food and cake, you can negotiate with the bowling alley and allow them to provide the utensils, plates, cups and napkins).  You can also have the bumpers used on your reserved lanes.  Bumpers on a bowling lane keep the ball from going into the gutter.  This does not guarantee that you will knock a pin down, but it certainly ups your chances.  Bumper bowling is great for younger children as it gives them a feeling of success.  It can even be a good idea for some of your less adept adults as well.

    Once you have your venue, you will need to create your guest list and send out invitations. There are a number of ways you can do this and make it creative and unique to start off the experience of the birthday party. If you have the time you, can make them yourself  by creating bowling themed invitations or you can get any invitation supplies you need from Bowling Delights.  We have all number of bowling themed items that can help create the ultimate bowling party.

    Once you have invited your guests, you should consider favors or prizes for those attending.  This creates an individualized experience that will ensure that everyone has a wonderful and memorable time. We, here at Bowling Delights also have great decorations and party favors that will make any bowling party a fun and unique experience for your guest of honor and your guests.  A bowling party is a fun and easy way to celebrate the birthday for any age and Bowling Delights can help you find all of the supplies you need.

  • Vintage Nostalgia Makes for a Great Party Theme

    If you are into crafty party themes, vintage bowling parties are the way to go! The definition of vintage is, “representing the high quality of a past time.”  Bowling parties are perfect for this because they can have a throw-back feel and theme, but still take place on location, playing a game that was even more popular then than it is now.

    When considering using vintage nostalgia as a theme for your next party think about a past time period that makes you smile or makes you feel like celebrating.  For some, it means going back to their childhood (80s party anyone?), and for others it means going back to a period from before they were born.  Either way, a nostalgic theme should evoke a sense of joy in you and your guests. If you’re at a loss for ideas, taking a look at party planning sites or doing a search for vintage party boards on Pinterest can give you lots of visuals to start from!

    One of the keys to throwing a successful vintage party is to focus on the iconic elements.  If you are throwing a 50’s themed party, invite your guests to don their favorite Mad Men style suits and dresses, encourage children to come as ducktails and bobbysoxers.  Play music from that era and maybe, if you’re feeling adventurous, try some of the wacky JELL-O molds that were all the rage in home cooking at the time.

    How adventurous are you feeling?

    If you’re looking for something fun, but your home isn’t quite big enough to accommodate everyone, or if you’d just rather leave most of the cleanup to someone else, a vintage bowling theme is perfect for your party.  Bowling has been around since the early Egyptians (an Egyptian child’s tomb was found to contain bowling balls and pins) so a bowling party frees you up for any time period that strikes your fancy.  Bowling alleys all over the country are happy to book parties of all kinds, birthdays, retirements, reunions, etc.  Even if you just want an excuse to throw a themed bowling party, your local bowling alley is up to the task.  They will often include in their party packages, some decorations and perhaps beverages, but most of the time, food and party favors are not included.  This is where your creativity comes in!

    Make your next event a solid strike with an original and fun “vintage” bowling party theme. Bowling Delights can help with everything from unique party games for all ages to kitschy party favors and decorations.
