If you have a favorite professional football team, take this tailgating party inspiration from Tammy with Pink Peppermint Design. She took team specific tableware and combined them with polka dots to create an adorable, one of a kind football party.


Nacho Bar

Another option for throwing a football party is to provide a main dish and ask your guests to bring the sides. Lindi from Love the Day took this to the next level with her Nacho Bar football party. She provided chips and asked her guests to bring the toppings!  It’s a great way to get a variety of football party foods and also to ensure that everyone has their own favorite.
