fun Notre Dame Fighting Irish theme party invitations, consider
disguising your invitations not as invites to your party but
rather to a Notre Dame game. Replace all of the usual information
for the game with the date and time for your party!
fun invitations, consider buying a stack of empty popcorn
bags! You can either write all of the information directly
onto the bags (opting to or not fill the bags with popcorn
before hand delivering them) or putting the information on
a card and placing them INSIDE the bag of popcorn (again,
you choosing whether or not to fill the bag with popcorn.)
This will definitely set a fun tone for your guests before
your Notre Dame Fighting Irish party even begins!
you have a large stone in your backyard, clean it off and
bring it in as a Blarney Stone for your guests to kiss for
good luck before the big Fighting Irish game!
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 centerpiece, take a Fighting Irish football helmet (or any
green or black football helmet) and fill it with plastic coins
(think pot of gold.) Then, using streamers in rainbow colors,
bring up the colors of the rainbow from the helmet to the
ceiling. The effect will be a Fighting Irish football helmet
of gold at the end of the rainbow!
fun snacks, pass out licorice shaped Irish pipes. These are
a standard shape for many candy companies. Check online if
you arent able to find any at your local nice candy
Shakes! Their easy to make and fun to eat - especially on
a Fight Irish game day! Make milkshakes in the standard way
(using your own favorite recipe) but replace the vanilla ice
cream with mint chocolate chip ice cream!
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.)
