Check out this fantastic tailgate themed football party
Father and son are rabid Georgia Dawgs fans so the Dawgs starred at this party, but you could use a generic theme of football or substitute your son’s favorite team and colors.
From the PVC pipe goalposts that transformed the yard into a football field to the football-themed cupcakes in team colors to the tailgate appropriate menu of party food, this party was a touchdown with everyone who attended.
Perhaps you’d like to transform your yard into a football field. I like the idea of using PVC pipe goalposts and spray painting yard lines.
Don’t forget to include your team logo in centerfield like Jessica and George did. So awesome.
If you haven’t got the patience or the DIY inclination, here’s a fun option (Amazon Affiliate Link) you can just buy. 🙂
To carry out the tailgate theme, park your SUV in the yard and style it with team pennants, jerseys, and footballs.
This party calls for outdoor grilling of “dawgs” and burgers. Crock-pot chili and chips round out the menu but don’t pass up the treats on the main table.
Chocolate covered Oreos, decorated with team colors, pennants, footballs and pom-poms, invite closer inspection.
Polka dotted cupcakes — in team colors, of course — are offered on the sweets table, along with team color candies. Coolers make drinks readily accessible and work great with the sports theme.
Party favors are offered in simple paper gift bags decorated with team colors and the Georgia Dawgs mascot. Arranged on a game table football field, the favors are a nice send-off for guests.
This would be a very easy DIY birthday.
Plaid blankets, lawn chairs, bunting festooned in team colors, all add up to a party full of team spirit. Fans chant, “We’re Number 1!” And so is this party!
