Football Party

Bowl season has arrived! Free game printables plus entertaining tips from the ladies behind Football Bettys will have you taking home the party hosting Heisman. (Gold rimmed tray by Julia Knight.)

Setup Invite guests into your home and allow them to kick back with good food and wine while watching the game. Provide an outdoor space for kids to run around and play their own game of flag football.

Favors The Football Bettys asked their friends at High Jinks Tees to make commemorative 2016 Super Bowl tees!

Menu For drinks, adhere a football play label to disposable cups for an easy but festive touch. Arrange your favorite meats, cheeses, and fruits on a cutting board for a fancy yet no-fuss charcuterie board. Finally, bacon-wrapped meatballs are a cinch to throw together at half-time! (Just prep your meatballs the day before.)

For the kids, serve Rice Krispie treats and football shaped cookies. Ask a neighborhood bakery about placing cookie orders in advance to pick up on the big day. (Ruze Cake House made our football shaped treats!)
