4.) Football Themed Décor: Cost $5.82 to $13.74
To fully sell the football theme, it takes more than a few flags and a great centerpiece, although that’s a great start. To pull the party together, you need football themed décor. Beistle offers a wide range of décor items on Amazon that are ideal for football themed parties. They have a table cover that looks like a football field, complete with lines and hash marks. There is also a pack of football themed picks that you can use to serve finger foods. These décor items are generic, meaning they feature footballs, football fields and such, but not specific teams. Creative Converting offers team specific décor such as table covers, napkins, plates and the like that showcase your favorite team’s logo and colors. It’s up to you whether you want to purchase décor items that are team specific or more generic. One benefit of going generic for the serving table, in particular, is the fact that you can reuse these items for additional parties. For example, if you are Georgia Bulldog fan and also like the Atlanta Falcons, the generic items will allow you to throw separate parties featuring both teams. You would only have to get new plates, napkins, cups, and food to throw another party.
