Iowa Hawkeyes Party Ideas

Iowa Hawkeyes 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 won’t 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.)

Check for upcoming sales at your local fabric store (Joann’s is great for having 40% off coupons that come in the mail to those on their mailing list.) A variety of fabrics in the Iowa Hawkeyes colors can be purchased. Sometimes you can even get lucky to find images/prints that will also work within the theme. The fabric can be used to swag on windows and over tables as part of a tablecloth display. Cutting the fabric into small squares will also provide for amazing napkins!

Visit 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 Hawkeyes theme pages!

A great kids game (and for more energetic adults) is to have each player lay on the ground wearing full football pads (all of them.) When you say GO, the party guest wearing the full pads must stand up and lay back down as many times as they can in one minute. This is tough to do WITHOUT the pads, with the pads it’s even more crazy!

Play 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.

For fun goodie bags, visit your local fabric store and pick up a couple yards of fabric in the colors of the Iowa Hawkeyes (sometimes they will even have team prints.) Joann’s is a great resource if you are on their mailing list - a great time to cash in their monthly 40% off a single item coupons! Quick and easy sacks can be sewn from the material and tied at the top with bright colored ribbon (in team colors.) They are quick to make and you’ll be so proud to pass them out to your party guests as they leave!

When 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. It’s 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.)
