Game Day Perfection!

We’re coming up on football season! Yay! We’re so excited not only for the gorgeous football players, but also for all the fun decorations and game day parties we get to throw. We have some great ideas this football season for game day decor, so follow our lead and have just as cute decorations!

Use Mason Jars

We know recently the whole mason jar thing has been over-done, but paint them or decorate them to be used as utensil holders! Try out different colors and design them to either look like a football, a referee jersey, or a football field if you have members belonging to both teams at your soiree. If it’s just one team’s fans, decorate the mason jars with your team’s colors. Go ahead and be supportive!

Concession Stand

Set up your food and drink station as a concession stand with cute flags reading off phrases such as “Go Team!” and “Hike!” Speaking of the concession stand, try to stay with the theme when it comes to what you are serving. No one wants crab cakes while watching a football game. Make sure to have hot dogs and hamburgers, chili, chips, cheese dip, etc.

Sweet Sidelines

The sweets you can get crazy with! Create a “sideline” section with all the sweet treats on it. Make this game day festive and fun with some cupcakes that show off your team spirit or some football cake pops. Make it fun!

Chalkboard Plays

To keep some decor on the table that goes along with the theme of game day, draw some football plays on a few medium sized chalkboards. Feel free to either lay them flat and place some food items on plates on top or use it as somewhat of a backdrop. It just tends to be a highly complimented decor item.

We hope these suggestions have helped and that you can use them at your own game day parties! Let’s all have a killer football season! Go Team!

Patio Party Preparations

Summer is slowly coming to an end, but if you’re in Florida with us, you will be continuing your patio parties well into fall. There are a few essential preparations you need to achieve an awesome outdoor soiree. Keep reading for some of our party suggestions!

Color Palette

Just like a room, decorating a patio starts with a color palette. For events that have a kids side and an adult side, balance is the key to making everyone happy. Look for color combinations that have at least one neutral color, and one pop color in the mix. It will help with incorporating a fun and playful look while maintaining a sophisticated tone at your patio party.

Furniture

Next, you have to find the perfect furniture. Modular sectionals are great for outdoor spaces, especially a sectional with a durable fabric that can hold up against children as well as the elements. Depending on the size and shape of your backyard space, a modular sectional can give you a lot of options for different configurations to provide maximum seating.

Dining Table

Look for a dining table that is going to be an investment for your backyard space. I would recommend against bargain shopping at this point. If you plan to entertain every season, you need to have a table that will last. At the same time, there are many high-quality options that will not only resist the elements but also add to the color and style of your event.

If the dining table is the time to invest, the chairs are another story entirely. Comparison shop away. There are plenty of inexpensive options that will go perfectly with an upscale design. I like outdoor dining chairs that are light, stackable, and have some color to them.

Outdoor Rug

You can’t forget about the rug! Rugs make a beautiful addition to any styled space, and the outdoors are no exception. In fact, outdoor rugs may be even more ideal because they are kid and pet proof. They are extremely durable because dirt and mud simply sit on the surface of the rug, making it much easier to clean up after your soiree. As the perfect inexpensive way to brighten up your space, outdoor rugs come in a wonderful range of colors and patterns that will help you design a party that will leave all of your guests impressed!
