State Seminoles game day field! For those that are planning
much of their party space outdoors, take some standard white
sidewalk chalk and draw some of the lines on a football field
directly onto your cement patio or driveway space. You wont
be able to get the whole field in, probably, but drawing a
few of the yard marks can still have a huge impact on the
overall decorating space. This is especially effective for
outdoor spaces because there never seems to be enough decorations
to thoroughly cover an outdoor space (with all of the wide
open space in view.)
your local craft store and pick up a bag of red feathers.
Take half of these and LIGHTLY spray paint them with gold
spray paint (youll need to practice a little because
too much paint will cause over clumping of the strands on
the feathers.) Once they are dried, group them together with
twist ties or with a dot of hot glue in small clusters. These
look AMAZING to decorate all throughout your party space!
They really add a classy feel to your Seminole party!
a fun tablecloth, cover the table with white butcher paper
and paint a message right on the paper - something like GO
the kids involved and make a paper chain using the Florida
State Seminoles colors. Cut the construction paper in strips
and loop each strip, connecting the ends with either staples
or tape. Have fun coming up with different combination of
colors alternating in groups or every other loop. Its
inexpensive and easy and they look great!
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!
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.
a fun game for those more adventurous guests. Ahead of time
boil lots of boiled eggs (two for each guest) and provide
one NON-hardboiled egg for each guest. Pair up your guests
and explain that they will each get three eggs cracked on
TWO of them with a football helmet. They
get to choose which egg will be cracked over their head (by
the other partner in the pair) without the helmet. The trick,
of course, being to make sure that you are wearing the football
helmet with the egg gets cracked (which will end up getting
their partner messy instead of them!)
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.)
fun party invitations, write all of the party information
on a small piece of paper (small enough if, when rolled up,
will fit inside of an uninflated balloon. Insert the rolled
papers in Florida State Seminoles balloons (or their colors)
and mail them with instructions for your party guest to blow
up the balloon and pop it in order to get the party info!
Its a party invitation with a bang!
