Football season is finally here and we are celebrating with a College Football Kick-off Party. My husband grew up in Atlanta, and is a die hard Georgia Bulldogs fan. In fact, in our home, there are only two sports, SEC College Football, and hockey. Each year we talk about hosting a season opener watch party, and there always seems to be a reason why we can’t, but not this year!
I ordered all of my party supplies from Oriental Trading Company. (They have loads of products for your favorite teams and even supplies without team logos) Once I had my supplies, I dug out a few of our Dawg decorations and got to work in our outdoor party space. I hung a 3’x5′ team flag as the backdrop focal point, and strung coordinating party bunting on either side. Once the backdrop was ready, I placed a simple plastic tablecloth on the counter. Since the party was outside and it’s still very hot in Florida, I kept the dessert and other foods inside. A faux cake sat center stage to remind our guests to help themselves to the food in the house. Fun field lined treat cups were filled with popcorn. I filled drink dispensers with ice water, and coolers with Georgia’s drink of choice, Coca Cola.
Foam fingers were placed all over the party space to help cheer for our favorite team, and the guests took their foam fingers and mini red footballs home as party favors!
I am so glad we made time to celebrate the SEC College Football Kick Off with our friends and even a few team rivals. We are excited and ready for football season, what about you?!
