Super Bowl L1 is February 5th, 2017 and everyone is gearing up for the face-off between the Falcons and the Patriots! Even though the main event is on the big screen, Super Bowl Sunday is about so much more than who wins and who loses. It’s about coming together with friends and family over good food, great fun and lasting traditions. Whether you’re a die-hard football fan or you’re in it for the half-time show, Super Bowl is a blast, and we want to help you celebrate in style!

Do you have everything you need to celebrate the biggest game of the year? Check out our Super Bowl party tips for making your Super Bowl party super fun!

 

1. Show Me That Team Spirit

Make the most of being the host and help your guests show their team spirit! When people arrive, hand out football themed costumes and other wearables! We’ve got temporary tattoos, boppers, football themed decorations and more! Come on in and we’ll help you find the perfect fan costumes.

2. For The Snack Table

What’s a Super Bowl Party without a decked out table of wings and snacks? Display all those delicious chips, dips and wings on our football themed party trays. Feeling extra festive? Decorate the food table like a football field!

When the big game is over, play your own games! Our favorite game is the football edition of pop the balloon! It’s simple:

  1. Pick the Super Bowl team colors for balloons.
  2. Write words like “penalty” or “personal foul” on slips of paper. On one slip, write the score of the winning team.
  3. Place a slip of paper in each balloon.
  4. Ask your guests to pop the balloons.
  5. The guest who gets the winning score slip is the winner!

This game is lots of fun, especially if you have silly gifts for the winners and participants! Check out our football themed necklaces, hats and other fun wearables for gifts.

4. Football Fun For The Kids

If you have little kids attending the party, set out some football themed crafts so they can participate in all the festive fun. If the kids are a bit older, set up a mini football toss with streamers and, of course, a football!

Maybe you’re hosting your big annual Super Bowl party for hundreds of people, or maybe you’re gathering in the living room for a more intimate gathering. Whatever your plans are this Sunday, we wish you a wonderful day full of good laughs and lasting memories! Go Team!

How to Get Jolly for San Francisco Santacon

Wednesday, December 9th, 2015

Set of red Santa Claus hats for SantaconSantacon — the annual flashmob parade of slightly sober Bay Area people dressed in Santa suits – has officially entrenched itself in the past couple years as a San Francisco public tradition.

Also known as “Santarchy” and “The Red Tide,” the city-wide pub crawl starts with toy donations in Union Square this Saturday, December 12 at noon and proceeds to pretty much cover the city’s landmarks, bars and dance clubs until well into the night.

What do you need to participate in Santacon? A Santa suit, of course!

But that’s hardly a simple answer, because there’s so much you can do with a Santa costume. Paper Plus has everything to outfit the budding Santa within you, including not only the tradition soft red-and-white Santa suits, but also the largest selection of Santa hats.

Authentic Sinterklaus’ will appreciate our selection of white beards, gloves, and suspenders.

Feeling like going dressy this year? Classy Saint Nicks might prefer our miniature Santa hats or Santa hat clips, which pair well with a cute flannel dress and ho-ho-ho boots.

Give your Santa costume some California sunshine love with our Santa sunglasses. We even have Santa themed tutus!

Watching the fun from afar? Throw on one of Paper Plus’ twenty-some Santa headbands. They’re easy to put on and take off when the Christmas mood suits you (or when the bar you want to patronize has a No Santa policy).

Get over to Paper Plus in North Berkeley before this Saturday and stand out in a sea of Santas.

Looking for something in particular? We’re friendly! Call us at (510) 525-1799.
