A Football theme party needs music to get the blood flowing and the heart pumping. Singing, dancing and having a great time with family and friends is what most celebrations are supposed to be like. Therefore, finding the right melodies and tunes for those special events is very important. From rock and country to jazz and blues, getting together with friends and celebrating great times or special events will make your event very popular. There is nothing soft or slow about the hard-hitting game of football so why should the music be as such? Football songs can include rock, rap, hip-hop both new and old school songs.

Remember the Name - Fort Minor
Down with the Sickness - Disturbed
Bleed It Out - Linkin Park
Enter Sandman – Metallica Bodies - Drowning Pool
Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap - AC/DC
Bulls on Parade - Rage Against the Machine
Bullets With Butterfly Wings - Smashing Pumpkins
My Hero – Foo Fighters

Many football them songs do not refer to football on any way but just pump people up. Include a variety of football theme party supplies such as helmets, posters, cut outs or the favorite teams or players. There are dozens of different party supplies such as mini football helmets for ice-cream, cake baking pans, and tableware items such as plates, napkins, cups, and tablecloths. Life size standees of football players will make it seem as if the football players are standing in the party (very exciting for kids). Play football games or a touch tag football game and the party should be a complete success. Creative idea: Matching or contrasting color decor items such as plates and cups will work for any theme ideas. If you specify the type of clothing for a social event like summer causal, give a few examples of what is acceptable and more importantly what isn't. When all is said and done, favors given to those guests who were able to attend will both feel appreciated and be reminded of the day whenever they look at that favor.

Setting up a themed football party for a birthday celebration or just because will make for a great time. Sensational get-togethers often involve designing and preparing in advance for the occasion. Most often color arrangements and other needed supplies will add to the celebration and make a great addition to the event. Nearly all hosts will find that fun décor and color schemes are the perfect perks for the event. This addition will give the celebration a really cool appearance. Football is the most popular sport in the United States, and for good reason. Throwing a football theme party should include favorite team memorabilia (for children who love the game but not a particular team use generic football party supplies and decorations). Print out homemade football birthday party invitations with the child’s image on them with his (or her) favorite team or play on it. Create football party invitations that resemble a football ticket.

Other handmade football party supplies can include anything from cutting out large footballs out of brown construction paper, felt pennants, banners, and posters. Create a football themed banner welcoming guests to the party with football images and the guests of honors name. For a very large banner, use paint rather than marker or crayons because such art supplies are too time consuming for covering large areas on paper.

A football themed party should also include a football centerpiece along with the other party supplies. Use a football, or footballs, green, white, and brown balloons (or a team’s colors), cleats, and football gear as a wonderful show case centerpiece for the football themed party. Compare different how-to make centerpieces with own ideas to ensure the centerpiece is the talk of the party.


Most hosts will find that there are many designs to consider when creating a football theme football cake for your next birthday or super bowl party. This exciting event is the ideal time for creative desserts and other party foods designed especially for this celebration. These items are always a great addition to a celebration and most often fun like cakes that are designed especially for this celebration will make everyone feel very special. More often than not, these great party foods and desserts will add a lot of fun to the special event. Consider these football cake ideas that require minimum party supplies but provide a lot of fun.

Get 3-Dimensional in two ways when the cake. The first option would be to bake a football shaped cake that stands upright. This requires multiple layers of cake, cutting and time. If you do not have the skill or the time to invest in such an elaborate cake, try creating a piece that can be placed into the center of the cake. For example, if a large goal post was iced in the center, a clear, small pedestal could be placed in the center with a small football attached to the top. Take line strips of white chocolate or similar and place them around the pedestal about a quarter of an inch apart. This will make it look like it is being kicked out of the cake.

Nearly all hosts will enjoy finding other ways to spruce up the cake and create a football field, including relevant teams and items such as the goal posts, fans, football players, and uniforms. This simple touch will all add to the fun of the football themed cake.

Fall is a favorite time for the decorator in each of us and football is an especially rich source of seasonal images. Stadiums filled with cheering fans, homecoming parades and rich harvest themes mix to form the football party décor. From making a guest list to preparing the food, having a plan will make the celebration go off without a hitch. Simple hostess tip: Prepare for the entire celebration in advance and avoid adding any extra commitments or stress on the hostess during the preparation period. This simple tip will ensure that the hostess has a stress free and very entertaining time during the actual celebration.

Football paper party goods can stand alone without the fall motif for a consummate fan's birthday anytime of the year though. In this case the décor could just as easily rely on the guest of honor's favorite team colors. It does work out conveniently when the guest of honor has a fall birthday and his favorite team's colors are orange and brown! That makes finding matching tablecloths, plastic flatware, cups and paper party goods a snap.

The menu for a sports party is always casual but can still be elaborate. If the football party ends up being a tailgate party at one of the many high school, college, semi-professional or professional football stadiums then the menu needs to be a very portable one. Some stadium parking lots are set up to accommodate grills and small fold-up picnic tables so that the game plays second fiddle to the tailgate party.

If the actual season of fall is the setting for a football themed party then take advantage of the crisp air and unbelievably blue skies by taking the party outside. If the stadium is not the location for the party then maybe a friendly game of tag, touch or flag football can be organized in the back yard or nearby park. If the weather is a bit too crisp for the picnic foods then maybe a sunroom or even just a wind sheltered garage will do better for serving. Whatever the location or season have plenty of football themed paper party goods in stock to serve cold cuts and baked beans.
