Football Party Printables + Cheeseburger Turnover Recipe

free printables button


Looking for some EASY football party ideas that won’t break the bank? You’re in the right place!

It’s amazing how far you can go with a simple roll of white duct tape. 😉 I’m also including a bunch of free printables for you in the traditional football party palette of green, brown, black, & white. Hope you have fun with these! 🏈🎉

***Note: When I first created this post, I had a cheeseburger turnovers recipe included too… BUT they were made with a boxed flatbread mix that’s no longer available. So, the recipe’s been removed, but these are still a great game-day snack idea! You can find lots of similar recipes online.***

CREATIVE HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

  • Kraft food trays lined with referee stripes
  • Minimalist “football field” table cover made from artificial grass + duct tape
  • DIY football mason jars and chip bags
  • Free printable yard lines inspired banner
  • Chipboard craft letters (“YUM”) spray-painted gold

DIY Football Mason Jar Drinks

Use the aforementioned white duct tape to make “football laces” for standard mason jars. No need to be perfect – it’s just about conveying the general idea! And then fill the jars with dark soda or iced tea to reinforce the idea of a football. For the finishing touch? A party flag, of course! {You can download these party flags at the bottom of the post.}

Want a creative way to serve your turnovers? Try lining the bottom of simple brown food trays with “referee striped” paper…

    I'm having a challenge finding the artificial grass. Where did you find yours?

    • jenn s. January 21, 2015 at 2:18 pm

      I got mine at Home Depot – it’s in the back near the carpet at the HD near me. They’ll usually just cut the roll to the size that you need. Hope that helps!

      Thank you!!! I called a few other stores and they were out of stock for the season.
