Whether you are throwing a Super Bowl Party, a tailgate party or a football themed birthday party, we have some awesome football party ideas for you!  Get ready for the big game with some awesome football party treats and football party decorations. 

Are you ready for the Super Bowl this weekend?  We are hosting a Super Bowl party at my house this year, so of course my mind is a buzz with party ideas.  Personally, I’m a little bummed about this year’s Super Bowl.  

Pretty much dislike BOTH teams playing…but since I love me a good party, we are gonna throw one anyway and cheer for the commercials!

Football parties are some of my favorite.  It never ceases to amaze me how many creative ways there are to make something ordinary look like a football or a field.  

And seriously, its just plain fun to do so.  Another thing that I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE about throwing a football themed party is the food.  Tailgate menus are awesome.  

I’m a sucker for greasy sports bar style food.  Come on, I’m an American…it’s kinda my job to love nachos and chili dogs, right?

So here are some of my favorite football party ideas…hope you enjoy:)
