Looking to add the Detroit Lions silver color may be the trickiest party.

Take blue and white buttercream, gum paste, and/or fondant. Prick holes in the sheet of paper (which is printed out and placed on top of the cake) and remove when finished. Now, connect the dots to form the Lion and now a Detroit Lion logo is present.

There are numerous ways to design a team themed cake so look for ideas and inspiration to make the best (most delicious) cake possible for the celebration.

The first step in planning a Detroit Lions party should be making the invitations. As part of making the invitations you need to decide when and where you will have your party. Consider starting it as a pre-game tailgate party in your backyard or a nearby park. You could then move the party indoors to your living room to watch the Detroit Lions game or you can start your party with the Lions game and just have an indoors party.

No matter how you decide to have you party be sure to give all the details of your Detroit Lions party on your invitations. You might want to make your invitations look like tickets to admit guests to the party. You can also just have them be general football themed or be on paper that is the Lions team color of light blue.

For a Detroit Lions tailgate party your party supplies should include food and drinks. If you have access to a barbecue for your tailgate party, you should serve items like hot dogs and burgers. Use football and Detroit Lions themed party supplies such as football shaped serving dishes, light blue paper plates, blue cups, and light blue or football themed napkins. Have several coolers with a variety of drinks for your guests to enjoy.

Plan some activities for your outdoor tailgate party and/or to do during halftime at your Detroit Lions party. Backyard games such as bean bag toss, ladder toss, touch football, flag football, and tackle football are good for a tailgate party. Trivia games, especially if they feature Lions questions, are great for halftime.

The Detroit Lions began their football history in Portsmouth, Ohio in 1929, but moved their silver and black décor to Detroit, Michigan in 1934. The Lions have become a great NFL tradition and have won numerous league championships, but most notably have never had a Super Bowl appearance. In fact, they are one of four NFL teams that have never played in a Super Bowl. The other teams are the Cleveland Browns, Houston Texans and the Jacksonville, Jaguars.

Furthermore, over the years, the Detroit Lions have played their home games at five different stadiums, but currently play at Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan. The former stadiums were: Universal Stadium (where they played from 1930-1933), University of Detroit Stadium (where they played from 1934-1937 and then again in 1940), the Famous Tiger or Briggs Stadium (1938-1974), and the Pontiac Silverdome(1975-2001). They have been playing at the current stadium, Ford Field, since 2002.

Detroit, Michigan is known for its history in the automobile industry but the Detroit Lions have helped to make the city popular, despite having held one of the longest losing streaks in NFL history. However, the Lions have had some of the most noteworthy players in NFL history, such as: Bobby Layne, Bill Dudley and Barry Sanders. These players along with many notable others have made the city of Detroit, Michigan proud to be home of the Detroit Lions.
