Football Party Ideas For Girls

Every year we throw a girls-only Super Bowl Party. We decorate, make snacks, and party like only girls can.

We all know that boys and girls are different. The differences can really be seen in the way that we choose to entertain. Continue reading for some ideas on how to party on Super Bowl Sunday, without the guys.

Boy Decorations: Red plastic cups and empty beer bottles
Girl Decorations: Handmade fabric buntings and coasters

Nothing disposable here. I love my Football Field Bunting. It gives a nod to the fact that there is a football game on the television without being tacky. You can download my easy instructions and pennant pattern for free .

Most men think of coasters are weird decorative items with no purpose. These coasters again nod to what is happening on tv but still protect the coffee table. I made these coasters with a single sheet of felt. You can find the instructions for free here.

I have a lot of football bowls and trays that I have found in thrift shops at random times of the year.  I also have a tablecloth that has football players on it that was originally a curtain. You'll see it in the next picture.

Boy Food: Chips and something meaty.
Girl Food: Endless Options

We have a different menu every year for Super Bowl Sunday. I usually choose a different cuisine from some part of the United States for inspiration. This year we are going to do the Pacific Northwest. I'm pretty excited about researching the foods of Seattle.

These are some favorite food items from Super Bowls of the past.

Antipasta platter. I used my stadium stray and tried to make the veggies and olives look like fans.

This is a calzone that I made with store-bought pizza dough from Trader Joes, some homemade marinara sauce, cheese and veggies. I just folded it to look like a football and added some laces with extra dough.

Here is a football cheeseball. Instead of chips or crackers, I served it with veggies.

I love the rolls that look like footballs. I've used them for sandwiches in the past but the football sloppy joes are my favorite. And, I got to use my football picks.

Sometimes my dips get a little out there. This is an eggplant dip that I served with bread rounds.

This may be the one snack that girls and boys can agree upon. I love popcorn. My food theme last year was Jersey Shore and popcorn just made sense.

The one thing that I make every single year is Jell-O Jiggler Helmets. I try to find flavors that match the team colors and put them on my stadium tray. Here's the recipe.

Don't forget dessert. My mum made a homemade apple pie with a football on the top crust. Yum!

I don't have a picture of my favorite Super Bowl dessert. Two years ago our food theme was New Orleans. I made individual chocolate souffles. They were amazing. Anyhoo, I love to make Krispie Pops for almost every occasion. These are my football field and football versions.

Boy Rules: No talking during the game!!!
Girl Rules: No talking during the commercials!!!

This would have to be the major distinction between the guy Super Bowl party and our girl get together. Companies spend millions of dollars per second on Super Bowl advertisements and we ladies appreciate that. I look forward to the commercials every year. It's no time for chit chat or potty breaks.

There you have it; The Super Bowl Girl Party. Thank you for stopping by the Vintage Sheet Blog today. I hope that you have found some inspiration for your next sports themed party. I'd love to know, what are your game-day traditions?

 Don't forget to download the tutorials for the football field pennants and coasters. You can also use the pennant pattern to make NFL pennants. They are pretty fun. I make 2 new teams every year.

What a fun idea and boy do you ever have a great time! Us girls use to craft during super bowl while the men watched, but that has come to a halt. This is the first year in ages that hubby and I partied all by our lonesome. We cooked a few poppers and taquitos, but really wasn't much of a party. lol! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
