Backyard Football Bash

Michele B By Michele B  in Birthday


Party Recap

Football season is under way! What a way to celebrate the fall, football and a future little quarterback than with a backyard football bash! This party was so simple, super fun and can easily be used for tailgating, game day celebrations and the Superbowl.
Rebekah of A Blissful Nest designed the collection of printables focusing on footballs, stripes and the traditional colors of brown, grass green and yellow. That way we kept it simple and away from any team colors. The colors really made the table "pop".
We first placed down a piece of artificial grass we picked up at our local hardware store. We had them cut it the size of our table and it really is an inexpensive way to add an authenticity to the whole football theme. I think the piece literally cost about $5! The focal point of our table was a goal that my husband actually made out of pvc pipes. Again, from the hardware store and super, super cheap!!
For the sweet treats, popcorn in popcorn cones (part of the collection designed by Rebekah), simple vanilla cupcakes from the local grocery store, pretzels (we found the snack cups in Target for $2!) and delish football themed cookies and cake pops from Fun Favors. I Have A Favor sent personalized football themed water bottles for all our guests and we used those during the party and as their party favor!
The kids truly had a blast playing catch in the backyard, even my daughter who was the little cheerleader! What a way to welcome fall and football season! Go team go!
