Here's a confession: I am not a sports fan. That pretty much solidifies that Sam is going to be into sports when he grows up, doesn't it? And I am dreading the day he comes to me and asks that his birthday - or his bedroom - be decorated in the theme of his favorite team. Moms just like me are why we our new Football Fun Collection in our roster. We believe that Andrew's amazing illustrations and the unique color palette will be cool enough for kids and stylish enough for moms. Talk about a win-win.
The photos you see here are of an snack table we recently put together using many items from the collection. We also thought the dessert table should be a combo of easy to eat, game days snacks as well as easy to eat cupcakes -- especially if there is game watching involved in this party. To make things even more simple, we even did a shopping list of what was used.
Grocery store: Bag of large pretzels, bag of your favorite flavor of chips, bag of popcorn, water or other drink
Cake shop: 18 "novelty" cupcakes or make on your own! (By the way, our fabulous cupcakes are from The Cake Box.)
Craft store: Pack of small kraft bags
Hardware store: Small wooden dowels (each dowel makes two flags)
Dollar store: Roll of twine, 3 small bamboo cutting boards, small clothes pins, wine boxes (painted white to act as risers)
Around your house: Containers for popcorn, chips (we used ramekins & mason jars), table cloth, napkins, bull clip for sign
Our collection on Etsy: Banner, sign, 1 inch decals, straw decals, favor tags, napkins rings, bottle labels, cupcake wrappers, placemats (for popcorn), tiles (for flags)
From other Etsy sellers: Felted Football (GARsticksandstring), Straws (HeyYoYo)
