the host or hostess to the party, its important for
you to dress the part as well. Go all out on dressing in Jacksonville
Jaguars 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 center.
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 Jaguars theme pages!
the kids involved and make a paper chain using the Jacksonville
Jaguars 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!
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!)
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.
your hands on some wrapping paper in Jacksonville Jaguars
colors (it would be even better to get some official Jacksonville
Jaguars print, but not necessary.) Wrap up some empty boxes
in the wrapping paper and use as table top decorations throughout
your party space. They will add volume to your party decorations
and fill the room with team colors. For the more ambitious,
consider wrapping very large boxes like those from appliances
found behind major department stores!
