Football Home Party Games

If you are hosting a Super Bowl party or any other football gathering, watching the game is usually the main event, but playing football-related games is also a fun way to add excitement to the party especially during half time.

Super Bowl Party Games

For those more active, organize a touch football game in the yard. People usually love to either play or watch and it gets everybody up and moving.

Another great choice is to have a few printable games ready especially for those less active. We recently became partners with Python Printable Games and my friend Ashley has some great ones to choose from.

You can buy his printable party games individually or you can buy a multi-pack like the one shown here. This pack includes 17 printables including word searches, Mad Libs, trivia and match games.

We like printable games for theme parties because they are easy to play with a lot of people and are very inexpensive. This pack, for example, is only $19.95 for 17 theme party games.

Just download the package to your computer and you will be ready to print and play. You get the convenience of buying them online plus you can download them immediately and use them over and over again. Click here to learn more about Ashley's Football Games Pack.

NOTE: Python has set up an exclusive offer for Theme Party Queen visitors. Buy any single printable game or game packs and receive 25% off at checkout. Use Coupon Code THEMEQUEEN25 when ordering.

Super Bowl Football Pool

In addition to playing touch football or printable games, organize a football pool.

What is a football pool? MSN Encarta defines one as "a form of gambling in which the participants, usually work colleagues, bet on the results of college, university, or professional football games. The collected wagers are pooled and divided among the winners."

To organize a pool for Super Bowl, you will need a Football Pool Sheet with squares where people can fill in their names.

Second, you will need Instructions on how to set it up, how to determine winners and how to pay out the pot.

You can either buy a football pool package or you can download one for free.

Super Bowl History

It all started in 1960 when the American Football League(AFL) was first established. You see, the National Football League(NFL) was 40 years its senior, and the two leagues immediately began battling over players. They started outbidding each other in order to attract key players and it got really ugly.

Then in 1966, Al Davis, the new AFL commissioner, really started cranking up the heat. Reportedly, eight NFL quarterbacks were being courted by the AFL and something drastic needed to be done.

The NFL really had no choice but to sign a merger agreement with the AFL on June 8, 1966. The agreement called for a common draft and the immediate establishment of an annual championship game between the two leagues which would eventually become known as Super Bowl

Super Bowl Theme Invitations

I especially love the ease of creating mass amounts of free invitations very easily using Microsoft Powerpoint and then mailing them or emailing them directly to my guests.

Theme Powerpoint Invitations

When I am in a hurry, I can not afford to waste time hand addressing invitations or waiting for them to come in the mail.

I taught myself how to create very basic free invitations in Powerpoint and I use this method several times a year as most of my parties are casual.

To learn how to create free invitations in Powerpoint, click here to go to my Design Powerpoint Invitations page. Watch a video of me doing it!

I also teach you how to create address labels in Microsoft Word which saves a ton of time.

Football Party Decorations, Hostess Gift Idea

My friend Karen and her husband Jim are selling these really cool Lighted Mason Jars decorated with NFL team logos. They would make great hostess gifts as well as interesting football theme decorations. Set a couple of these on your food tables. What a super way to light your special areas and add a splash of color.

Football Recipes

Having people over to watch football games during the season is one thing, but for the Super Bowl, there is some serious partying going on!

Invitations are sent out, houses are decorated, people dress up in their favorite team attire, and of course, there is always A LOT of food and drinks at a Super Bowl party.

You can almost always count on a bowl or two of chili being served for football games. I like this Chicken Chili recipe because it's out of the ordinary and it's a little bit healthier than the beef variety.

Along with chili, I recommend serving a bunch of football appetizers and desserts. Try some of these at your next football gathering:
