My birthday often falls on or near the Super Bowl! My husband is a high school football coach so the Superbowl is one of his favorite days of the year and I graduated with an Advertising degree from BYU so I love the Superbowl commercials, so the Superbowl is the one day a year where our two interests literally collide into one amazing day of birthday/Superbowl fun! So, the past few years we’ve decided to throw a “Super Birthday Bowl” to celebrate my birthday and the Superbowl with our friends and family in one awesome combo event! My husband’s grandma has her birthday within a day of mine so we always include her too!
I married into an awesome family and have the best mother-in-law who loves throwing parties and making crafty things just like me! So we combined our efforts and decorated for this party together! We decided on a green/turf, brown, black/white stripes, and silver color scheme.
I found these balloon letters, field banner, and green/white/silver tassel banner at Zurchers. I added the brown tassels to incorporate our party’s color scheme. I used striped wrapping paper for the third banner. I printed the letters and taped them to the banners which was pretty easy.
Something you have to know about me is I LOVE candy. So it is only fitting that at my parties there is always a snack bar or a candy bar of some kind! (You’d better believe there was a giant candy bar at my wedding!) We found these adorable little football-themed disposable containers for guests to scoop their candy into so they coul eat them at their seats.
We found a plastic tablecloth that looked like a football field and had various football-y foods like wings and chips as well as girly things like wraps! The food was serve-yourself-style so everyone could eat as they pleased during the game and they were free to mingle and wander between the kitchen and the living room. It turned out perfectly!
