Football Themed Invitations
I love sending and receiving party invitations in the mail. Opening your mailbox to find some fun mail is so much fun. Who says invitations are just for kids’ parties?
When I send out invitations, I always like to include some fun stickers for laptops or water bottles. If you know your guests’ favorite teams, these stickers are an inexpensive way to make your guests feel extra special.
Keto-Friendly Super Football Appetizers
We aren’t that far out from the New Year, and some people are still sticking to their New Year’s Resolutions. If you are doing Keto or have guests that are, then these Keto-Friendly Appetizers are going to be a touchdown at your football party.
Easy Keto Sweet Pepper Poppers
These are perfect if you want all the goodness of Pepper Poppers without the spice of the jalapeno. Instead of jalapeno, this recipe uses sweet bell peppers to give this recipe amazing flavor without the spice. Of course, if you need spice in your life, feel free to substitute jalapenos back in.
Spicy Roasted Cauliflower Bites
Looking for something spicy, low calorie, and low carb? Then these cauliflower bites need to find their way to your party table.
Smoked paprika and Sriracha sauce give spice and depth to the flavor of these healthy little bites.
These would be perfect served with these cute football cocktail picks.
Buffalo Pig Wings
I know hot wings are usually the winner of the football party table, but these Buffalo Pig Wings offer so much more meat per piece and flavor that they are sure to be the real winner.
These are a Kansas City favorite. You might have seen these on menus of bars and restaurants in Kansas City.
Try these with a blue cheese dressing. Just be prepared for some when pigs fly jokes.
Keto Onion Rings
What party table is complete without onion rings? And these keto-friendly onion rings are going to have your guest singing your praises.
It is almost impossible to find a yummy alternative to traditional onion rings for Keto dieters. While onions do come in a little high on carbs, these can still be consumed in moderation for your Keto guests.
Super Football Finger Foods
We listed a bunch of yummy Keto-Friendly snacks above, but if you don’t have those dietary restrictions and are looking to make the best football finger foods, I’ve rounded up a list that will make you the MVP of hosting.
Avocado Black Bean and Corn Salsa
What is a football party without some yummy salsa?
I love this salsa because it only takes 10 minutes of prep time! Who wants to spend the whole game in the kitchen?
Even though this comes together quickly, it is packed with flavor. Toss in some store-bought tortilla chips, and it’s served.
Buffalo Chicken Jalapeno Poppers
This mash-up of Buffalo chicken and jalapeno poppers might be the perfect party food ever created. It’s creamy, cheesy, and spicy! Sign me up.
You might want to stash a couple for yourself because these are sure to be the first empty platter at your party.
Instant Pot Honey Buffalo Wings
Is there any kitchen appliance quite as amazing as the Instant Pot? These Honey Buffalo Chicken Wings are perfect for the sweet and spicy fans at your party.
Even better, the writer has included both the instant pot and slow cooker instructions. So if your instant pot is tied up, no worries, your faithful slow cooker is there to save the party.
Chicken Fajita Nachos
Nachos are always a crowd-pleaser, and I love how much food you get for such little prep time. These are loaded to the max with all the best toppings. One of my favorite tricks with nachos is to choose a quarter to leave off less kid-friendly ingredients. That way, I only have to make one tray of nachos.
Super Football Cupcake Ideas
Every party deserves beautiful cupcakes. I rounded up some of the cute ones you can make at home, or you can get some cute cupcake toppers and make it super easy on yourself.
Stuffed colored Cupcakes
These super cute cupcakes are stuffed with yummy marshmallow fluff filling that you can color to the team you are rooting for. I love that you don’t need any special tools to make these other than a round cookie cutter.
Football Pull-Apart Cupcakes
I love doing cupcakes like this, and these are the easiest pull apart cupcakes I have ever seen. If you can make a simple swirl with icing, you can make this.
If you would rather just make some cupcakes and put some cute toppers on them, I found some really cute toppers on Amazon.
Cute cupcake football flags: These flags are so cool, and I know kids will love to play with them well after the game is over.
Football Cupcake and Wrappers: This 24 pack of cupcake decorations comes with both cupcake toppers and wrappers.
Super Theme Themed Decorations
No party is complete without party decorations. I found these super cute football decorations from Amazon that you can have delivered straight to your house before party day. No wasting time at the mall or party store.
A Party in a Box – this 219 piece comes with plates, cups, plastic silverware, plus a tablecloth, banner, hanging decorations, stickers, and balloons. This is the best set for the money.
Football Photobooth Props – I think a DIY photo booth is a great way for people to remember what a great time they had at your party. This package comes with 24 pieces, including a backdrop.
Football Party Games
Super Football Sunday might feel like it comes with built-in entertainment, but adding some party games can make your party even more unique and keep it a social event instead of everyone just zoning into the game.
Printable Football Bowl Games are a great way to keep everyone involved in the game, even people who aren’t football fans. This game bundle includes Football Predictions, A This or That Game, Several Pages of Scattegories, and football Squares. These games are perfect for your whole party, including kids and teens. Up the ante by giving prizes to people who had the most correct answers at the end of the night.
Inflatable Football Toss: If you are going to have a lot of kids at the party who are going to get bored halfway through the game, this inflatable Football Toss Party Game will keep them entertained for a long time. Don’t be surprised if the dads and teens join in too.
Football Ring Toss Fieldgoal Post Hat: This ring toss game is a hilarious game that is sure to bring lots of laughs to everyone at your party, from adults to kids.
Adding some party games is a great way to increase the fun at your football Party.
Hosting a football Party isn’t hard with the right game plan.
With the perfect game day invitations, game snacks (both Keto-friendly and not), party decorations, party games, and yummy football cupcakes, you won’t be fumbling for a Hail Mary.
