Elegant Football Tablescape

Paula Deen gives us this inspiration for a beautiful game day centerpiece that looks intricate, but is incredibly simple to comprise. Fill a large glass cylinder with textured scrapbook paper (that resembles a pigskin) and adorn the piece with a floral arrangement of your choice, and viola! You have an elegant and festive centerpiece to wow your party guests.

Game Day Party Display

It’s amazing how a piece of chalkboard, a few X’s and O’s and beer bottle serving labels can really spice up a football party table setting. An incredibly simple craft that will surely add a festive touch for your NFL kickoff party, Super Bowl bash or any game in-between.

Recycled Noise Makers

The kids always request a noisemaker of some sort at every game. (And let’s face it, the rambunctious sideline accessories are a hit with adults too) Instead of purchasing a noisemaker this season, get crafty with recycled water bottles and dyed rice and beans — you can even enlist the help of the kids!

Playing Field Centerpiece

This statement-making centerpiece is surprisingly simple to construct. All you need is a quick trip to the florist for the grass (live grass gives it a more sophisticated feel than faux blades) and some plastic figurines from a party supply store, and you have a go-to centerpiece for every game day party or tailgate.

Mason Jar Cutlery Holder

We love this festive cutlery holder for any sort of game day celebration, from tailgate to backyard barbecue. The architect of this craft simply painted a mason jar brown and topped it off with a bright red ribbon…Easy as 1,2,3.

Gathered Fabric Decor

You don’t need to pull out the sewing machine for this trendy fabric decoration from Celebrations. Simply purchase and shred fabric in your team colors and/or logo and tie the pieces to one long strand of rope.
