Football season is here!!

Are you excited?

The highlight of my college years were always the football games. Every year there were a bunch of friends and myself who would buy season tickets and sit in the rowdy Student cheering section at Arizona State University. Tortillas were often thrown about and people were just down-right crazy there. It was all part of the fun, though, and I’m sad I won’t get that opportunity anymore. I’m hoping one day though, that the hubby and I will be able to take our whole family to a College Football game because they are SOOO much fun!


With it being Football Season I thought I’d share some fun Football Party Ideas and printables for you to use while you are party-ing it up this season!

Here are the details…

I went with a chalk theme and made a DIY Chalkboard Backdrop using Black Gift Wrap (for more info about it go HERE). I used a White Chalkboard Marker to draw on the wrapping paper.

Everyone knows that good food is a necessity at any Football party, so that’s exactly what I got – Root beer, Chips & Dip, Boneless Wings, Mozzarella Sticks, Sweets and more!

It all looks delicious, right?!

Everything was laid out on some plastic turf that was bought from the Home Improvement store. It was a few bucks for this big piece.

I also made a great Football Field Banner:

I love how it turned out! I just downloaded (download it below), printed and cut out each piece. From there I punched each corner and strung it with some jute, which I thought was more manly than twine or ribbon. 😉

I also wrapped one of my DRINK crates with some jute to have it match as well as cover the sides with.

Tying the jute/hemp around each drink and jar also added a little touch and tied everything together.

I decided to do a few prints that could be printed and stuck in frames too. 🙂

I also made some Cupcake Helmet Toppers. I just punched these out with a big hole punch, glued them on to some circle cardstock and then taped them to some sucker sticks. They were perfect in the Vanilla Bean and Lemon Cupcakes I got from the local grocery store (yes, I caved and bought them and didn’t make them myself, lol!)

The cupcakes were perfect in the back on some black cake stands (I had to hide them in the back to make them less accessible to the littles – lol).

Here is an example of the food labels (I taped them to some striped straws):

And thanks to Buffalo Wild Wings, the best part of the whole party was THE FOOD!!!

I was given a gift card to buy some food for the night (which was perfect because the hubby had invited ALL of his students over and we had lots of mouths to feed!) We decided on Boneless Wings and Mozzarella Sticks because we knew everyone loved those. We got Buffalo, Teriyaki and Honey BBQ wings, and they were ALL delicious! I couldn’t even tell you which one was my favorite. I though for sure the Teriyaki would be but I ended up loving them all. My hubby LOVES BBQ so his favorite were the Honey BBQ Wings.

The mozzarella sticks were gone reallllly fast. They are one of mine and my hubby’s favorite appetizers so we were glad we got them to try out (and devour!!)

Seriously, SOOO good!

I was so happy to hear that Buffalo Wild Wings offers Large Order Takeouts. That was what we were able to for our party. I called my order in at lunch and asked for it to be ready at 5PM. We got there right at 5 and everything was all ready to go! PERFECT!!

Be sure to pick up some yummy wings before your next Football Party or Tailgating Event because I promise everyone will love them, and they’ll be gone in no time!
