Ready, Set, Hike! Printable Football Games

Ready, Set, Hike! Printable Football GamesIf you have been put in charge of hosting this year’s Super Bowl party, or any football themed party, having the right mix of food, entertainment, and company will keep the party flowing in between passes and touchdowns. For the entertainment >> think printable football games!

While typically during any “Bowl” party, most guests will be focused on the football game, there will always be commercial breaks and half-times when your guests may prefer to stretch and take a break from watching tv. And there are always a few guests who come for the food (and the company) rather than the game itself. So it never hurts to have alternative entertainment, like printable football games, readily available. Plus, you can literally purchase and print them out 5 minutes before the party starts.

If children are invited to the party, they may not want to watch an entire 3 hour football game. Having a fun game option for them, like a pin the football game or a fun football themed photo booth will give them a break and give them a chance to just be kids. Plus, recruiting the adults, blindfolding them, and making them pin the football on the quarterback would most likely be worthy of a snapchat or insta-story, too.

Printable Football Games

And for the grown-ups, even if you don’t have a designated time at the party to play games, you could always set out a few trivia themed printable football games. Make sure your friends know that prizes will be awarded to the guest who gets the most answers correct by the end of the televised game. This will encourage some fun competition during the party. And who doesn’t love the chance to win a prize? Continue Reading →

S'mores Party Invitations

We love Instagram.  We check our feed first thing every morning and today we awoke to this festive end of summer party idea courtesy of Tiny Prints.  How fun would it be to send off summer with a toasty treat by setting up a stocked s'mores bar in your back yard!  We just happen to have a fire pit (or two) so we can't wait to invite friends over for s'more fun.  Although we did like these joyful herringbone party invitations (they are no longer available), in the end we actually prefer the more literal s'mores party invitations available on Minted so there is absolutely no confusion about what to expect – no dinner, no cocktails, simply s'mores. We are especially excited that among the Minted invitation offerings is one of their free online invitations (*free thru 12.31.17) Continue Reading →
