Go all out for the NFL playoffs
January 13, 2010
The NFL playoffs are finally here. (And you thought that the holiday season would never end!) But, before you invite friends and family over to watch some of the big games, make sure that you have all of the party supplies that you need, so you're not put to shame by your fellow sports-fans.
NFL party decorations display team spirit
Throw up some party lights in your team's colors and show your pride by decorating your space will all of the NFL decorations that you can get your hands on.
Jets fans have plenty to celebrate this year, as the green team's entry into the playoffs was a surprise to everyone. Make sure to mark the occasion with all of the Jets party decorations that you can find.
Serve up traditional game-day fare like pizza, nachos and wings on New York Jets luncheon napkins and Jets team plates.
Of course, if you're a fan of the San Diego Chargers, you might want to pick up San Diego party supplies (and make Jets fans eat with their hands).
This year, two contenders are putting the fate of their teams in the hands of older quarter backs. To celebrate what might be the last time that Favre and Kurt Warner hit the field, make sure to pick up plenty of Vikings party supplies, or deck your living room out in Cardinals decorations.
If you're rooting for the New Orleans Saints, why not hand out Mardi Gras beads at the door and show your team pride with some Saints decorations like black and gold.
The Cardinals, who are up against the nearly-undefeated Saints have a rough road ahead of them. Arizona fans should definitely go all-out with their Cardinal decorations to support their team in their pursuit against the NFL powerhouse.
Keep guests happy
Of course, sports fans do more than just cheer (or cry) on game day - they also like to eat and drink.
Provide your friends (and enemies) with some snacks to keep their energy up and their tempers on an even keel.
Hosts who like to cook can easily whip up their own cheesy dips and spicy nachos, but if you prefer hassle free snacks, simply order wings or subs from a local restaurant.
Chili is an easy and tasty option that's a cinch to make. Just pour all of the ingredients into a crock pot and let the stew simmer all day. Guests can grab a bowl whenever they're hungry and you won't have to worry about keeping the main dish hot.
Serve up soda and beer in cups decorated with the logo of the team of your choice.
Of course, in the event that your team wins, you'll want to plenty have of noisemakers on hand to celebrate your victory. Make a victory playlist and have it ready to go for the final touchdown, sit back and enjoy your win!
