the host or hostess to the party, its important for
you to dress the part as well. Go all out on dressing in Alabama
Crimson Tide colors and mascot prints. As an alternative,
especially if there will be fans of the opposing team (on
game day), consider borrowing a referees shirt from
a friend who volunteers through a league or city recreation
youll be watching the big game as part of the party
(or AS the party) have a Alabama Crimson Tide hat that gets
passed around the room each time the Crimson Tide make a score
of any kind. Each time they score, it gets passed to the next
party guest who has to wear the hat until the next time the
Crimson Tide score. At the end of the game, whoever is wearing
the hat wins a prize!
your local scrapbooking store and check out there individual
print pages. These make for GREAT table place mats or as a
base for your centerpiece. They are very inexpensive (typically
60 cents a piece) and can be found in a variety of colors
and prints. If you live in the city of the team, you can often
find Crimson Tide theme pages!
a few rounds of football themed Bingo. This is a great activity
to play while watching the game during commercial time or
every time someone scores during the game. You can either
create your own boards or download some HERE.
you are planning on several different games (or a single games
where the players are earning points) dont call them
points. Instead, refer to them earning yards
just like in a football game. The winners will be those that
get 50 yards from the 50 yard line to make a touchdown!
if your party will be held indoors, use large coolers as part
of your decorations. If they do not have the Alabama Crimson
Tide logo on it, its easy to print out the logo from
your computer and tape it directly to the cooler!
purchasing team print napkins and plates, pick up an extra
package of each and use them for decoration! They can be some
of the least expensive and festive decorations you can use
for your party. Napkins that are unfolded can be hung up,
place inside clear bowls for centerpieces and taped up just
about anywhere. The plates can be hung from the ceiling and
the walls. Its a simple idea, but a great way to add
volume to your decorating without breaking the budget (see
below for team print napkins and plate options.)
