Calling all Football Fans

SUPERBOWL PARTY (pt.1)

(designed by Kim Howard)

Are you ready for some football?  We are less than 3 days away from Superbowl XLIV (44) and wanted to give you a little bit of inspiration just in case you are planning a blowout bash for Sunday’s game! Our designer, Kim Howard, kept the party neutral, so she went with a color theme that was not representative of either team in the championship.  But feel free to go all out and create invites and decor based off your team of choice.

Snack Tins

Doesn’t everything seem even cuter when they come in small packaging?  Of course they do! Why should football be any different? Set out bunches of snack stations with football themed snack tins.  This way guests can refill them throughout the game and then take them home as a fun party favor and reminder of Superbowl XLIV.

  • Fill with assorted nuts to double as a party favor guest can take home after the game
