Football Party

Football Party!
As crazy as it may sound, with my husband being a football player, I have never thrown our kids a football birthday party! However, I did want to feature a football party. So thanks to some of my fellow bloggers I have some great photos and ideas to share with you. The first two photos are from www.amandaparkerandfamily.blogspot.com. The great thing about this feature is that she actually offers these items for purchase on etsy. You can customize the colors to fit whatever your childs (or your) favorite team is.

The below photo is a freebie printable of cupcake toppers available on www.sweetmemoriescakerydesigns.com. If you have never made cupcake toppers the steps are very simple. Download and print the document on heavy card stock. Use a 2" punch to punch out each circle. Glue a small white stick to the back and then cover with a blank 2" circle.
On www.doodlezdesigns.blogspot.com she featured a very cute football party. Below this was her favor table. What a great way to send home each guest with their own football and football game.


Some easy football decorating ideas:
1. Cover your tables with artificial grass. You can purchase this from Lowes or Home Depo in the carpet section.
2. Use plastic pom poms and megaphones as center pieces. Easily found at your local party store.
3. Serve your punch or juice from a Gatorade cooler. These can be found at sporting good stores.
4. Local sporting goods stores would be great to get party favors as well. Wrist bands, footballs, etc

I know with you loving parties and celebrations this much you must be a reader of Celebrate magazine but in case you aren't you should be...and in their Winter issue they had the cutest football party complete with live grass center pieces placed in containers wrapped in cute scrapbook paper...so cute.

Hope you don't mind all my comments, you just have so many cute things/events to share.

As another football girl, this party idea is adorable and I will definitely be using this idea with friends! We all have football husbands and i'm sure some little guy's that want to be just like their daddys. Thanks for sharing!
