Easy DIY Football Themed Party Ideas

Fall Football and Fun…

Fall is right around the corner, and with that comes Football Season.

Whether you’re watching the NFL, College or High School, a few simple football snacks

are always welcomed by the fans.

To keep the decorating easy, I used a few sheets of Football themed scrapbook paper.

I used one of the 3″ x 4″ sections and attached it to the front of a small caddy container

(from the Deflecto Stackable Caddy Organizer*) with repositionable tape to make a

silverware holder.

I used the Deflecto 3 Tier Dessert Stand* to hold my snacks.

The stand is the perfect tailgating companion.

It is easy to put together and folds flat for compact storing and transporting.

Use football-themed washi tape or strips of cut paper and adhere it around the edges

of the tiers for added fun.  (Make sure to use repositionable adhesive. )

Create a banner to hang on the wall using colored cardstock or construction paper in your

favorite team colors.  I created the letters using white craft vinyl from StyleTechCraft and cut

them out using my Silhouette Cameo Electronic Die Cutting Machine*.

You could also use letter stickers to spell out your words.

I picked up clear cups, napkins, condiment cups and silverware at Dollar Tree.

Entertaining doesn’t have to cost a fortune.

Having everything in clear cups makes for easy grab and go snacking.

I also found this cute little Football Game at Dollar Tree. 

It makes a great prop and sign holder.

Popcorn, Muddy Buddy, Pretzels, Mini Corn Dogs and Beer.  Oh My!

Now we’re ready for some Football!
