  1. 1

    Make football pennants. Purchase pieces of felt and decorate with your favourite team's colours or the colours of the teams playing in the game. String several of these together to create a banner. Using felt, make small football jerseys, cutting the felt into a shirt shape. Glue your favourite player's number on the jerseys. Consider putting guests' names on the jerseys.

  2. 2

    Decorate a tablecloth. Purchase a green tablecloth or use green notice board paper. Paint white lines on the tablecloth or paper so it looks like a football field. Cut a sponge or potato into the shape of a football, and use brown paint to add football decorations to your tablecloth or paper.

  3. 3

    Create a football field in your backyard. Kids, young and old, enjoy playing a game of flag football. Use PVC pipe, painted yellow to fashion goalposts. Hold the goalposts in place by screwing them into pieces of 2-by-4 wood. Paint the wood green so it blends in with the grass. Spray paint hash marks on your yard or use a roll of indoor/outdoor turf painted with lines and hash marks.

  4. 4

    Make posters and banners. Create a banner with the party's name or celebration. Design signs for your front yard and door. Make the classic defence sign that has a large "D" and a picture of a fence. Hang signs in the area where you will watch the game and where the food will be served. Consider encouraging guests to bring a sign with a creative saying to hang up and award prizes for the most creative or funniest.

  5. 5

    Plan a centrepiece and place settings. Tie balloons using the colours of your favourite team to a football and place in the centre of the table. Place pom-poms around the football, matching your team's colours. Place pom-poms around the TV area, so fans can cheer during the game. Consider a simple place setting such as a bottle of Gatorade and a referee whistle. Personalise each place with a koozie or write guests' names on the whistles with a thin permanent marker.
