you have a large cement driveway or patio space that you will
be using for your Michigan Spartans party, consider taking
sidewalk chalk and drawing the yard lines of a standard football
field. Of course, you wont get all of the yard markers
in the space, however at least getting in the 50 yard line
or even the end zone can be fun!
photos of each guest during the party, preferably alone. As
thank you cards, create football trading cards using the photos
that you took of each guest. Its an inexpensive, yet
impressive parting gift and thank you card for attending the
for upcoming sales at your local fabric store (Joanns
is great for having 40% off coupons that come in the mail
to those on their mailing list.) A variety of fabrics in the
Michigan Spartans 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!
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.
if your party will be held indoors, use large coolers as part
of your decorations. If they do not have the Michigan Spartans
logo on it, its easy to print out the logo from your
computer and tape it directly to the cooler!
fun goodie bags, visit your local fabric store and pick up
a couple yards of fabric in the colors of the Michigan Spartans
(sometimes they will even have team prints.) Joanns
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 youll be so proud to pass them
out to your party guests as they leave!
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.)
