Last night officially kicked off this year’s NFL season which means football fans everywhere get another year of watching their favorite gridiron greats (thank goodness the lockout ended!)  To celebrate the return of the pigskin, this week’s parties we love are all fabulous and football themed.

True football fanatics start early, and if you are hoping that your child will root for your favorite team, then this Little Kicker Baby Shower from Eye Candy Event Design is a great way to welcome your little fan into the world. This particular shower was designed for Boise State college football fans, but you could use this theme for celebrating any team. Bright orange and blue school colors were used throughout, and custom printables add a cute touch to the party. Hiring an event photographer is a great way to capture all of the wonderful shower moments for your future football fan.

Football is also a very popular theme for boys' parties and we came across an awesome Football Fun Birthday from Spaceships and Laser Beams.  This party features an amazing snack table that doubles as an awesome display full of game day munchies and football themed decorations. Party guests can view classic football footage and highlights from memorable games as they snack on some stadium style food. If weather permits, a fun game of flag football could also be a great activity for guests. To really make the party authentic, consider bringing in a fun sports speaker to get the group excited for some birthday football fun!

For diehard football fans, Sundays are sacred, so why not celebrate in style when watching your favorite team? This creative Super Bowl Sweets event was featured on Bakerella for last year’s Super Bowl, but it could be tailored to your favorite team for a fun-filled football Sunday. Team jersey cookie pops, helmet topped cupcakes and team logo’d cake pops round out the delicious dessert roster for this party. This amazing table display is decoration enough for an action-packed game watch, and it will absolutely wow all your guests while they cheer on their favorite team. All three of these parties are touchdowns in our book.
