Tried It Tuesday- Football Party

I really want to link up with Holly at Fourth Grade Flipper for Tried it Tuesday, but going to warn you, this is NOT SCHOOL RELATED. 

Last week was my youngest sons 4th birthday and we had a football themed party for him. He is obsessed with football. He "plays" football while it's on TV. If they run the ball, he runs, if they pass, he passes. He always wins though. Once, a player was hurt and all the other players were on their knees, I look over and he was on his knees too. It was actually a very significant injury and they had stopped the game for about 15 minutes. He eventually went from his knee to sitting criss cross on the floor. He takes this stuff seriously people. 

So, once he told us he wanted football, I let my Pinterest obsession go to work! It was soooooo fun! 

My football man! 

The tailgate table!
Saw this on Pinterest for gift bags. So easy!
The tops came from Catch My Party. FREE printables! Gotta love that! 
My husband made this awesome cake. He is an extremely talented cake decorator.  
I actually thought of this on my own, last minute. My husband helped me throw it together real quick. It was a perfect way for the guests to enter the party though. 
My husband also had this idea. He made this for our guests to sign for Hamilton. I love the keepsake. 

I saw this idea on Pinterest too. My husband made all those cups. He is such a perfectionist.
The water bottle labels came from Catch My Party too. (Again, FREE!)

I made all the flags from FREEBIE from here. Such great party ideas!

Again, the hubby made these strawberry footballs. Talk about yum! 

Even made the condiments fun! 
Saw this online too. Thought it was super cute! 
We served hot dogs. Again, simple people, simple! 
A few years ago, my husband made this football toss for a community event.
It was perfect for this party.
All the kids loved playing outside! 
We all got in the fun with our jerseys and eye black. 
Even my older ones wore eye black. Anything for their brothers! 

Frugal Mom and Wife had some GREAT ideas too. 

It was loads of fun and super easy. 
Thanks for letting me indulge and share a little about my kiddos.

  2. What a cute idea! I love themed birthday parties. I was just never very good at planning them for my own children. (Where was Pinterest when I needed it??)

    Happy Thanksgiving!
