This football party tablescape was created with ease and convenience in mind. It’s cleverly built around everyday dishes and glassware and crowd-pleasing decorations. A neutral color palette of brown, green, and white works for any team.
Two different-sized glass cylinders, one inside the other, make up the centerpieces. Scrapbook paper trimmed to size fills the space between the two vessels and is also used to make the napkin rings.
Textured scrapbook paper that looks like the pigskin of a football is available at arts and crafts stores. Use pieces of white shoelaces to mimic the stitching found on footballs.
Pieces of brown craft paper are taped together with ½-inch-wide white tape to create a tablecloth. The stripes of tape look like yard lines on a football field, and cleanup is a cinch since all you have to do is throw the paper away! The woven placemats mimic the grass or turf of a football field.
Prediction scorecards serve as a fun icebreaker and conversation piece, as well as place cards. You can download the scorecards here for using at your own football party.
