fun Ohio State Buckeyes theme party invitations, consider
disguising your invitations not as invites to your party but
rather to a Ohio State Buckeyes 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 Ohio State Buckeyes party even begins!
those guests that enjoy cooking, organize a buckeye candy
competition (buckeyes are the peanut butter fudge balls that
are dipped in melted chocolate - DELICIOUS!) Allow each guest
to try each (you might need to cut them in half for the sake
of getting through all of the entries) and determine a winner
based on popular vote!
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.
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
Ohio State Buckeyes 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!
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 Buckeye theme pages!
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.)
