Football Themed Party Ideas by Birthday in a Box

We’re in the middle of football season, so there’s no better time to throw a sports themed party for your child’s birthday! Your guests will get a kick out of your decorations, party food and activities. With the help of football party supplies from Birthday in a Box, you can score the winning touchdown at your next party.

Food & Drink Ideas – The possibilities for a football themed party food are endless and you don’t have to spend hours in the kitchen. Just serve all of your child’s favorite party treats. Set out buckets of chips, popcorn, and pretzels. Or choose single-serve bags for even more ease. Make mini sandwiches as the main course or order pizza. For beverages, you can choose single-serve bottles and cans, or use economical large bottles. You can serve drinks in fun football cups from Birthday in a Box. For the ultimate cake, consider a football-shaped confection. Your football themed party guests will love it.

Party Activities – Kids can have lots of fun with a football pinata. Instead of playing hot potato, play hot football! Ask kids to stand in a circle and pass around a football as music plays. When the music stops, the child holding the football is out. Continue until there’s only one child left – the winner! If the weather’s warm enough, try an outdoor game. Have an adult hold up two hoola hoops, and kids take turns throwing a soft football through them. Whoever scores the most goals wins!

Party Decor – There are endless ways to bring football to the table. At Birthday in a Box, you can find football themed party napkins, plates, and cups with fun graphics. Decorate with a personalized banner and set the table with a football centerpiece. To bring your child’s favorite team to the party, select solid-colored napkins, plates and cups in the team’s colors.
