Football Party Ideas

I don’t need an excuse to throw a football party, but getting paid to do it by Collective Bias®  Social Fabric® Community is a pretty good one! This post may contain affiliate links. I receive a small commission when purchases are made through these. 

It’s no secret that my favorite thing about entertaining is the food. It’s the first thing I think about when I’m hosting. At the same time, I like to actually attend my parties and join in all the fun! With the Super Bowl just a couple of weeks away, I want to share these fun and SIMPLE football party ideas that let you still enjoy the game! TOUCHDOWN!

I whipped up some cute printables to add to the fun (yes, you can download them for FREE below) and set-up was a SNAP!

Football Party Food:

To kick-off the party I arranged the pepperoni on the pizza to be in the shape of a football and added a little bit of shredded mozarella cheese on top for the laces. Cute and easy! I’d say that’s as good as a Hail Mary Pass right there.


Then, what party isn’t complete with the holy trinity of dips: queso, guacamole and fresh made pico de gallo (recipes can be found here).

I wrapped some 2-liter sodas with my free printable wraps (you can get them below). Cute, right?!

As a side note, during half time I always pop some popcorn and pass out ice-cream sandwiches to get us through the second half. 🙂

There are lots of really cute football themed party goods at Walmart, Amazon and Target. I got football themed napkins, plates, streamers and the table cover!  I made the printable “GO TEAM” pennant banner and used my Silhouette machine to cut out some cardstock footballs to bring all of it together.

Just for fun I made these flag pennants and provided a few referee whistles (since we’ve got a few that think they are a referee in our family anyway – might as well give them a yellow napkin to act as a penalty flag and a whistle – right?)
