Football Season: HOw to Decorate for a Gridiron Get Together.

Football season is a time for family, friends, and some good old competition. It’s a time where no matter who you’re rooting for you stand behind them one hundred percent, and even if you can’t physically be at the game screaming and shouting you sure can throw a party for every to scream and shout!

Let’s start off with making a statement before your guests even walk in the door, with a wreath in your team’s colors. These are super simple to make yourself. All you need is a wire ring, to the size of your liking and lots and lots of ribbon. It’s as easy as tying bows onto the wire ring, alternate your ribbon color to incorporate all of your team’s colors. A helpful hint here is to line your wire ring with florist tape to prevent your bows from slipping. Add a cut out of your team’s logo or mascot for an even more personalized touch!

Your food display is a great place to add a few quirky touches as well. Starting with the tablecloth, you can pick up some turf at your local home improvement store, cut it to size and tape a few lines to have the look of a football field.

Don’t forget about the utensils! Placing your forks and such in football koozies or koozies with your team’s logo is a laidback way to add some spirit! No work necessary!

You can’t neglect your drinks either. Drawing some Xs and Os on paper cups to give the look of a playbook is just the right touch for any gridiron get together. Even water bottles can be spruced up for the occasion! Print off some free bottle labels to make referee water bottles. Add a whistle in team’s color; even your kids will appreciate this small detail.

If you’re running behind but still want to add some team spirit to your party, grab those extra jerseys and throw them over the backs of your chairs. Quick and easy. It’s also free which is great for those of us decorating on a budget!
