30 Aug Kickoff the Season with these Fun Football Party Ideas
Fall’s a special time of the year when fans of all ages huddle up in front of the TV to watch their favorite teams play football. Some even like to take their team spirit to the stadium, where they can grill up hot dogs by their car and challenge their neighbors to games of corn hole. It’s a true American pastime.
One of the best things about game day: No matter where your fans are gathering you can guarantee that chips and refreshments won’t be far away. That’s why we took the opportunity – now that the official NFL Preseason is heating up – to throw our own tailgate party complete with tasty foods, cold drinks, and our own football party supplies. Go long to the end of this post to find some awesome football party ideas and food suggestions that are sure to knock everyone’s cleats off.
Decorating for Game Day
When it comes to any sports themed party, a snack table is the way to go. We decided to draw attention to our buffet station by building a large goal post out of yellow latex balloons. It couldn’t have been easier. All it took was some tape to attach each balloon to the wall. Then we hung our football pinata between the posts for an extra touch of football flair. With all the fun planned for the day, it’s a safe bet that someone will be looking for candy later. Call it a SWEET victory.
Did Somebody Say Snacks?
If setting the table was like the draft, our Game Day Football party supplies ensemble would be the first pick. Each item, from paper plates to serving trays, features a football-fueled design with a turf pattern and “painted” stripes. Mixed in with our black and white striped party supplies, you can almost hear the whistles blowing. Our Game Day Football Serving Trays hold appetizers like a pro. We used them to serve tater tot skewers and chicken and waffle sliders. They were real crowd pleasers.
We also had pigs-in-a-blanket, buffalo chicken dip, and lots of chips for everyone to eat. When it came time to keep thirsts quenched, our Game Day Football Plastic Cups got the job done right.
Don’t wait until the playoffs to host your own football themed party! Go find our sports party supplies online or at your local store so you can make your next football party a TOTAL TOUCHDOWN!
