Whether you’re ahead of your game for the Super Bowl or are creating a series of watch parties leading up to the big game, Shindigz has fun, affordable NFL party supplies to keep your crew cheering!

NFL Food

Great snacks are the centerpiece of an NFL party. Pizza, party subs, and dips are a must have. Choose your snacks from an assortment of sweet and salty or ask guests to chip in and bring their favorite dip and create a dip bar. Remember to stock up on a variety of dippables from bread pieces to pita chips, plus tons of tortilla chips. Many guests also appreciate having lighter, healthier fare such as a vegetable tray or low-cal guacamole. For a unique twist, serve NFL team snacks inspired by the team location or mascot. For example, New England clam chowder, Baltimore crab dip, or a Green Bay cheese platter.

Serve your party snacks on NFL party tableware in your team logo. Create a competitive element to your snacks by serving them on tableware featuring each team in the match up. Guests can chose their NFL_Colts_caketableware based on which team they’re supporting. Or NFL tableware assortments include not only must-haves like plates, napkins, and cups, you can also find unique items such as team logo ice cubes, drink umbrellas, and decorating picks for cupcakes and more.

NFL Decorations 

Carry the NFL team patterns from your tableware over to your decorations too. Use streamers and tablecovers in team colors to create a bright base. Add personalized football banners to show your team support too. Our metallic curtains in your team colors are a great way to create a big entrance to the party room, or cover living room walls to create a festive space for watching the games. You can match the metallic curtains to tableskirts too for a coordinated look. Don’t underestimate the power of decorating with balloons! Use latex balloons in your team colors to create balloon bouquets for your tables or to outline the party space. Add an accent to the cluster with a football mylar balloon or a mylar balloon in your team logo.
