Football Themed Party Ideas


Kick off the season of turf and tailgating with a football-themed party designed to score more than a few touchdowns with your guests. Whether it’s man-cave merrymaking, a day for the kids, or a whole-neighborhood affair, Shindigz has the perfect supplies and ideas to make your football kickoff party pop – so all you have to do is cheer on your winning team.

Scope Out Your Location

It’s one thing to want to watch the game, but it’s another thing entirely to kick off the season in style. Consider how many guests you want to host, and then plan accordingly. If it’s just the guys, you might prefer to deck out your living room or man cave. If you want to go all out for a big group, it could be advantageous to rent out a room so you have plenty of space to cheer. Whatever space you choose will impact how far you will want to go with your festive decorations.

Decorate to Win

Speaking of decorations, no kickoff party is complete without some good-luck gear and football-themed decorations. Show your guests where the party’s at with custom football-printed yard signs, and have plenty of extras around the TV that let your guests make some noise when your team scores – our football-shaped clappers are always a hit when a touchdown is on the table. Don’t love the look of football-shaped decorations? Try incorporating your team colors into your planning with elements like solid-color tableware, balloons or even the shade of beverages that you serve.

Snack It up

When it comes to a tailgating football party, it’s best to keep the menu simple – but that doesn’t mean you can’t get creative. Stick to bite-sized snacks – think chips and dip, cheese and meats, and plenty of appetizers – but serve them in style. Our football-themed tableware is a great budget-friendly way to integrate a little extra décor right on to your table. Want to really go big? Try gathering a game-day-worthy feast of munchies in an edible football stadium that wows while they chow down.
