DIY Super Bowl Party Decorations

This Sunday is not just all about the game. We know that the food, decorations, and even the commercials  sure can be fun too.  If you are having a Super Bowl party and want  unique decorations without breaking the bank, check out these crafty ideas!

1. Who will you “Root” For?

SUPER BOWL: Who will YOU "Root" For?! SO CUTE!

C/O  Pizzazzerie.com

This is a cute, simple  idea to add theme to your root beer. It is also a great way to show your underage guests  or those who opt for a non-alcoholic beverage that you were thinking of them!

2. Football Deliciousness

Use chives to turn deviled eggs into footballs.

Redecorate the pizza.

C/O Buzzfeed

Excite your guests with Football-themed foods. You can use chives to turn deviled eggs into footballs or redecorate a pizza for a touchdown masterpiece!

 

3. Football Field Table

Super Bowl decorations

C/O Holidash

Turn your buffet table into a football field with removable tape and stickers! It is the perfect place for your football-themed munchies. The tape and stickers look great directly on the table, but if

you want to protect your table’s finish, you can cover your table with green butcher paper or kraft paper.

For this project you’ll need a measuring tape, white tape, white number stickers  (make sure to purchase enough sets so that you have nine 0s), and chalk or pencil.

  • Mark off 9 lines where the yard lines will go with the chalk or pencil.
  • Use the tape measure to find the center of the table (what will be the 50 yard line). Then divide each half by five to get the measurement between the rest of the lines. Make them evenly spaced so that they represent 10 yards each.
  • Mark down both lengths of the table and then stretch the tape from mark to mark, tucking the edges of the tape underneath the table.
  • Lastly, put the number stickers on the table, starting with 50 at the middle and counting down to 40-30-20-10 on both sides.
  • Now you’re done!

4. Photo Booth Backdrop

Raspberry S’Mores

Yield: Makes 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 8  graham crackers
  • 32  large marshmallows, cut in half
  • 2  1.5-ounce chocolate bars (such as Hershey’s)
  • 1  cup  fresh raspberries

Preparation

Adjust rack to middle position and heat broiler or toaster oven. Break the crackers in half to form squares and place on a baking sheet. Arrange 4 marshmallow halves on top of each square. Broil for 30 to 60 seconds or until the marshmallows are golden brown. Break each chocolate bar into 12 pieces. Arrange the chocolate and raspberries on top of half the crackers. Invert the remaining marshmallow-topped crackers onto the raspberry-and-chocolate-topped crackers, pressing gently to make sandwiches. Stack them, if desired.

Tip: For more deluxe s’mores, use high-quality chocolate, like Scharffen Berger or Valrhona.
