Football Theme Birthday Party

This was a party that my middle sister & I threw for my son and my niece.

We decorated the tables with black tableclothes and made goal lines from green crepe paper and down the center was a banner than said Touchdown. We also sprinkled shiny football theme (helmets and footballs) confetti on the tables.

We also had several football serving dishes, one held spaghetti, another held chips and two cheese dips and the other one held a chocolate peanut butter dip with pretzels (pictures below.)

These were the goodie bags my son picked to pass out. They were jumbo sized, but were the only ones that had footballs on them.

 Here are some of the decorations. Between all the families within our family, we support the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers, so balloons used throughout the dining room were green, yellow, & purple. We had a Happy Birthday sign on one end with some balloons and a football pennant banner. On the other side were some football lights and a football doorway decoration.

 My daughter really wanted to help out and wanted to make some decorations. So, grandma cut out some football shapes for her and she drew on the lacing in different team colors and then we hung them on the door by the other Happy Birthday sign and balloons & kids' table (not pictured.)

And now for some of the football themed food we served (other food mentioned above):

Here is the cake with a football field and goal posts (made from straws) and cake balls in team colors.
