The NFL football play-off games begin this weekend so there is no time like the present to order your football viewing party supplies! We are so excited that the San Diego Chargers made the playoffs this year that we have featured Chargers’ team logo party supplies but as much as it pains us, we recognize that most of you cheer for other teams. You can find team logo supplies for your favorite team on Fanatics! Birthday Express offers a small selection of team specific party packs, in addition to their NFL team paper plates, napkins & cups and Windy City Novelties also carries NFL Team paper goods. If you are using lots of team logo items, you might consider mixing in patterned plates, like the blue and white paisley and plaid plates featured above rather than logo plates. They will add visual contrast to your party making the team logo supplies pop even more. Also, consider adding a striped paper straw in team colors to your bottled beverages.
Don’t forget the printable football party games, just in case the game is a blow-out!
