My boyfriend's birthday always seems to land around the first or second UM game of the season.. so since he is UM obsessed I've had to plan a football party each year.

These pictures are from his previous birthdays but can easily be substituted for a regular football/super bowl party:

I handmade little flag toothpicks that had a football field design.

I also found it to be a good idea to make a signature drink of the night.. so I made "Linebacker Lemonade." Doing this at parties is an easy way to save money on mixers and alcohol. A cute football party idea is to let your guests choose player numbers to identify which cup is theirs. You can have the guests place stickers on the cups or paint them on before hand.

I also made paper cones and filled them with tortilla chips. This way each person was able to take a cone and use their plates for different dips instead.

Foods: Football field seven layer dip, lots and lots of dip, Football cake pops, mini hot dogs in mini buns.

I have come to love football parties. I have found a way to make a manly event MINE!! :)
