Football Party Ideas

How was your weekend? We spent ours getting  playoff ready and recuperating from sickness that struck last week. I love weekends where there are no plans and just the right amount of lazy. Since we had our son's birthday party at our house last weekend, we needed a hot minute to chill.

In fact, when he told me he wanted all things football at his party, I was hesitant.  But enter the hubs who is clearly more Pinterest-y than me. He created the "games" and off we went. Though the games didn't go as planned, the kids had a blast. If you know a football fan who is having a birthday soon, check out these party ideas.


Football Treats

My sister is SO creative and made these football cupcakes - complete with perfect cupcake liners from Wal-Mart. She made chocolate cake with a chocolate cream cheese frosting and added "grass" (green coconut) and a candy football.

Cupcakes are my love language (and biggest weakness), and I can easily say they were DELISH. Thanks, Jill, for adding your touch to the celebration.


Next up, my super talented friend Ivonne created this cake - inside was red velvet with cream cheese filling. All fondant and the letters/football/grass were created by this bakery genius. I keep telling her she needs to start a food blog - this girl has some talent. Thank you, Ivie!


Football Games

And here's the hit of the party - the mini football field my husband created for the backyard. He used PBC pipes for the goal posts, painted them yellow, and put them in a bucket to hold them still. While we had plans for other fun games, the kids stayed right here and played. One dad (Hi, Halley!) just took over and coached the boys in a game. THEY LOVED IT.


I made signs to have around the yard so the kids could move from station to station. When they entered the party, they got their "game face on" by putting the black tape (these stickers) under their eyes. They could hit up "concessions" for hot dogs, popcorn, and other snacks/drinks.

We also had tires hanging from our swing set so the kids could throw a football - this was another big hit! We also had an obstacle course full of football drills and intended to use the field for the 20-yard dash, but we had a game going on instead.


In my OCD party-planning mind, the kids would try each game and keep score/times of each event. I also made these certificates to pass out to each guest after tallying scores. This part didn't happen due to that intense football game. I'm not hurt though - we had some sweaty boys who loved getting their game on!
Party Favors

Thanks to  this pin and  this one,  I came up with a party favor that included a "time-out." Inside each goodie bag was a Gatorade, a Ring Pop, and a small medal. Attached to this bag was this note thanking each guest for coming to play!


Do you have a football fanatic in your family? Or maybe you throw a Super Bowl shindig each year. Pin these ideas for the perfect shindig for your crew.



My little fan had a great time and is still talking it all. Just another reason I love this kid - you can read more about him in  the letter I wrote. He's still my baby boy.

Have a great week, friends!
