Cheerleader / Football Party Food
A fun and easy idea for a football party is to serve the food 'tailgate" style. Set up barbeque grills in the backyard and cook hot dogs and hamburgers.
Set up a concession style booth and serve stadium foods like popcorn, big pretzels, hamburgers, hotdogs, nachos, cotton candy, and peanuts.
Plastic megaphones filled with candy
Big foam hands that say #1
With a paint pen write party guests names on plastic megaphones and fill with candy.
Cheer Football Invitation Ideas
Make or buy party invitations that look like a football and then glue on pompom balls or make Cheerleader poms from 1 1/2" squares of white paper folded several times and then cut the ends into long strips.
Buy small plastic footballs and write the party information on the balls with a permanent black marker. Buy or make cards that say "Go Team" on the front in a Varsity style font.
Cheerleader and Football Party Decorations
Decorate in the kids favorite team colors .
Hang up pompoms, megaphones and signs that say "Go Team", ""Defense", "_________ (favorite team) Fans Only!", etc.
Set out footballs on the party table.
Make the party table look like a football field by covering it with a green tablecloth and placing white duct tape at each yard line.
Decorate the entrance or sidewalk that leads to the party in the same
way using plastic green table cloths taped to the ground. Over the front
door make a sign that says "_________ (last name of hosts) Field".
Use butcher paper to create a run through sign for the front door.
Paint it in your favorite teams colors and have it say something like "Go big #9 (for the birthday child's age).
Food can be served on the party table in plastic helmets or bowls that
are shaped like footballs. You can also set up a concession stand
and serve hot dogs, popcorn, nacho's, etc.
Fun Ideas for a Cheerleader / Football Birthday Party
Have the parents and adult helpers wear black and white referee shirts.
You could also make the adults (or family members) each a shirt with one letter of the birthday children's name painted on the front. Line up to spell out their names and take a picture with them in front in front. (Makes a great thank you card picture.)
