Tailgating Football Party Ideas {Part 2}

So appearantly today is National Fight Procrastination Day??!!   So we thought it was appropriate to share pics from our visit to Sonoran Living {errr…a year ago} with some Tailgating Football Party Ideas!  Better late than never, right?!  PLUS..it is the kick-off of football season AND we are going to re-post the FREE printables!!! (:

When we started planning the menu we came up with stadium food along with a few other creative ways to feed your guests.  Like this “BYOP”  Build Your Own Pizza!!!  Hand out pizza boxes with pizza crusts, a side of sauce, cheese and set up a topping bar.  Once your guests top their pie, throw it on the grill!  YUM!!!!

How about some quick serve nachos?  These snacks are ready to go with chips and take out cups of cheese & jalapenos.

We also put together snack sacks…with popcorn, pretzels, m&m’s and almonds.

Plastic cups were filled with peanuts dispayed in chipboard drink carriers…clever!

We splurged on gourmet cupcakes by Modern Cupcake topped with some DIY cupcake toppers and dressed up them up with football field printable cupcake wrappers.

We also made cocoa rice krispie treats.  Just make a pan of treats and use a football shaped cookie cutter to cut out and decorate.

This last one is our favorite!  We dressed up these lollipops with football jerseys and made lollipop trees using megaphones.

Our penant banner on the front of the table doubled as a concession display for bags of fresh popped popcorn!

Here we are with the stunning Stephanie Sandoval, the host of Sonoran Living.  Thanks for having us Steph!! This entire digital printable collection is available in our Esty Shop!

Here are the free printables we promised, thanks for stopping by!!

    These are all such great ideas! Usually during football sunday the wife tends to stick to the kitchen cooking and doing dishes not really getting recognized. This is a sure way to get recognized during football. It also allows for the girls to get together and enjoy ourselves too! Thanks for sharing these great ideas. Just may have to use them!

    How are these cupcake wraps printed, on white card stock and then cut out and taped together?

    I’ve never done this before but love them.
