It's Football Time!

My husband grew up back east though and is a BIG Redskins fan. Since we don't get to see too many Redskins games on TV out here on the west coast, he was so excited that their season opener was on TV out here that we decided to host a Redskins party last night with some good friends to kick off football season. I seriously can't believe I did all that work for a football game that the Chargers weren't even playing in... just joking, I love the guy and I love hosting parties, so it was all worth it. Plus the Redskins beat the Cowboys... ahhh, icing on the cake! I made this banner and the other printables from paperandcake.com. This is the 2nd time I've used one of their printable parties and I LOVE them! I loved being able to edit the text with the printables. We used my husband's football pictures from when he was a kid as part of the decorations! We had two galvanized drink tubs... one for the adult drinks and one for the kid drinks. The touchdown tea from the Rookie tub was a big hit! One of my favorite party details was the green astroturf runner! These little labels marked all the food for the RED Skin potato bar. For dessert I made chocolate rice krispy footballs and Red Velvet cupcakes (since it was a RED Skins party after all!) It was a great night with wonderful friends and I wish the Redskins a great season... almost as good of a season as I hope the Chargers have. Go Bolts! And Redskins :)

  2. The potato bar... such a fantastic idea!!! Those football rice crispies look yummy too! As always your parties are so cute, thoughtful and beautiful!

    3. Some ideas I find online and some I keep myself up at night thinking of.
    4. So true... the Chargers clearly don't know how to play in the rain :(
