Super Bowl Decor Ideas for the Sports Fanatic

Sure, hosting a Super Bowl party is mostly about the big game, delicious snacks, cold beer and being with good friends. But getting into the sportsman spirit can be fun with some simple decorations.

Whether hardcore football fans realize it or not, setting the tone for the evening to feel like game day makes the experience all the more fun. By incorporating some familiar team colors and football props that pay homage to professional stadiums, you'll throw the biggest Super Bowl party no one will be able to forget.

Separate your Food into Teams


Hostess with the Mostess made a fun little game out of her Super Bowl food and party decor. She arranged the party menu and tablescape into "teams," and coordinated each section by color and theme. She had food and baubles for The Fumbler, The Houdini, The Wingman and The Nibbler. 


Display Your Beer in a Fun Way


Of course, downing a few cold ones is all a part of the Super Bowl experience. But don't just leave your beers in the fridge or in a cooler; jazz up how you display it. Adorn each bottle with little football helmets, and have them set up like teams on a football team. This would work best if done outside, where the beers can still stay cold. 


Football Field Party Table


A simple way to bring the turf to your party is with this easy football field party table, created by A Night Bowl Blog. She gives step-by-step instructions to cover your table and adorn it with football baubles that really set the scene for your party. The best part? It protects your table and counter from food and drink spills. 


DIY Football Bleacher Dessert Displays



Displaying your cupcakes, snacks and hour devours on a layered serving tray is a party staple these days. But to make it really football-themed, make your own that are shaped like football bleacers. These adorable DIY steps from Hello My Sweet are a great way to display your decorative treats.Set the serving tray on AstroTurf for a more authentic effect.

Themed Koozies


Holding tight to your beer all night while you're cheering on the winning team is bound to make for some lukewarm brews. Keep your beloved beverages cold with a themed koozie, like these referee ones from refyousuck.com. Or order a big batch of your team's logo and colors to really show off your NFL pride.


Don't Forget the Branded Football Tins!

Popcorn and football go hand in hand, so kick it up a notch by rooting for your team with a gigantic football popcorn tin sporting their logo. As a hilarious gag gift popping with spirit, you can even send one of these to a friend rooting for the opposite team as a reminder of who the REAL winners are!
