Idea 1: Pump up the party with a game of beer pong!

Beer pong rules! One of the Big Game party ideas that everyone loves is playing the game that's all about getting the ball in the right cup. Perfect for hilarious halftime entertainment, beer pong is just what you need to get the competition going.

Idea 2: Go big with bling for your team!

Your team is ready to shine on their big day, and so should you! Bling like shiny beads, whistles and funky sunglasses make the future for you and your team look bright! Have some bling accessories on hand at your home-gating party to share with guests so they don’t celebrate empty-handed!

Idea 3: Football party tableware makes gametime snacking more fun

A snack table of classic tailgate temptations like Buffalo wings, cheese sticks, chips and dips is even more irresistible to football fans when you add football party tableware. Start with a tablecover, and then use football serving bowls and trays for snacks. Dress your bottled beverages in Referee Drink Cozies so they stay cold longer. Set up your football party display near the TV, so no one has to take a time-out to grab a refill.

Idea 4: Team balloons make a big impression

This is one of our fave football party ideas with high impact: Get everyone hyped for the game by lining your front entry with shiny bouquets of football-shaped balloons sporting your favorite team's colors and logo. Hang a custom banner on the wall next to the front door welcoming everyone to your football party.

Idea 5: Outfit your gang for a tailgate-style football party anywhere

Even adults love playing dress-up when the team's honor is at stake! For big smiles on fan faces, stock your Big Game "favor bar" with team spirit cheer gear like slotted shades and whistle necklaces. Let your guests know who the winning team will be by providing favors in only your favorite team's colors or let guests pick their side (even if that side is wrong) by serving up gear from both teams!

Idea 6: Set up a drink station in team colors and team logos!

Mix and match from our team-themed party supplies and colorful tableware for a bright display of beverages – start with a team logo tablecover, then add an ice bucket and bright party cups for drinks. Balloon bouquets, wall pennants and referee drink cozies add up to a fun and spirited refueling station that will recharge your football fans for the fourth quarter!

Idea 7: Celebrate your favorite team!

Transform your coffee table into a snack table; it's the perfect place to show your support for your favorite team! Set up your football party table with snacks and drinks in the center and add plates, napkins and the best football party ideas of all - tableware emblazoned with your team's logo.

Idea 8: Keep the party popping with game predictor sheets!

Keep everyone in the action with games and activities like an interactive predictor game sheet. During the big game, party peeps keep track of whether their predictions score or fumble! Winner takes the championship prize like a giant football hat!

Idea 9: Start the party at the front door!

Kick off the fun the second guests arrive by filling your entryway with fanrageous decorations. Football pennants, cutouts and "Party Zone" signs get guests pumped for some serious game watching. Hand each person a giant yard glass drink and direct them to a cheer gear table fully stocked with hats, necklaces and everything they'll need to get their game faces on!

Idea 10: Let cheer gear score you cheery smiles from fans

Even adults love playing dress-up when the team's honor is at stake! For big smiles on fan faces, stock your Big Game "favor bar" with team spirit cheer gear like slotted shades and whistle necklaces. Let your guests know who the winning team will be by providing favors in only your favorite team's colors or let guests pick their side (even if that side is wrong) by serving up gear from both teams!

Idea 11: A winning party game idea: football pool

Want a game that follows along with, rather than distracts from, the action on screen? Try a football pool! Get everyone to fill in their squares with their initials before the game starts. Then let the game begin! After each quarter, find the square that matches up to that quarter's score. The player whose name is in that square is the winner for that quarter! Don't forget prizes: how about silly football whistles or sunglasses?
