Touchdown Party!

This football season is wrapping up, which means it's time for more parties!  Whether you're planning a big party for this Sunday's big game or you're planning a small First Down Birthday party for a one year old, we've found some fun activities, decorations, and snacks fit for all ages!

We love a fun decorated table setting to match an event, so naturally, we love these fun football centerpieces using glass containers and fresh flowers.

In fact, we loved this look so much, we used it as inspiration for our own version and added some fun paper pennant flags and paper footballs for an event recently.

To get this look, we cut removable vinyl for the bands and seams of the football and applied them to the vases. Aquarium marbles were added to the vase with enough water to keep the flowers fresh. After arranging fresh flowers, we added an assortment of paper pennant flags and paper footballs on small dowels among the flowers and filled the rest of the vase with brown crinkled paper bag filler. We love the end result! The flags and footballs could easily be made in your favorite team colors. Even straw toppers that you can download from Etsy for a few dollars would be a fun addition to a centerpiece.

If you're celebrating a young fan's birthday, look at this adorable handmade cake topper by DecorateYourBigDay on Etsy.

At the entry to your event, set up a photo booth where everyone can take pictures before the game starts. We love the referee stripes of this background!

While you wait for the game to start, everyone can enjoy some of our favorites activities, including our larger than life Football Combo!

Every party big or small needs some tasty snacks. We think these chocolate covered strawberries and football shaped brownies would pair perfectly with any bowl of chili, plate of barbeque, or chips and dip.

We hope you have a fantastic weekend and that if you'll be spending time with family and friends watching football, that it'll be fun, memorable time!
