Table Decorations to Spruce up Any Celebration

Tuesday, January 16th, 2018

Nothing makes a celebration festive quite like finger food, friends and family, and fun party table decorations. Take a look at our favorite table decorations for home holiday festivities for Super Bowl, Award Shows, Valentine’s Day, and Mardi Gras.

Super Bowl

superbowl balloonsOn Super Bowl Sunday, there are snacks galore, tons of hungry fans and plenty of opportunity to decorate that snack spread. Create a football field table spread with football-shaped cookies and touchdown centerpieces. With a green table cloth and some white duct tape and paint, you can create a football field table cloth, so every snacker is a player!

For the table cloth:

  1. Cover the table surface with the green table cloth and tape it down to secure it.
  2. Mark where you want the yard lines and use white duct tape to create the lines.
  3. Use paint or white paint markers to write numbers on the field.

And keep your guests and the kids entertained on Super Bowl Sunday!

Award Shows

red carpet and streamer for oscarsAwards shows like the Oscars and Grammys are all about the glamour. Using silver and gold table decorations like stars and confetti is a great start. Use a black or red table cloth as your base. If you’re preparing appetizers, decorate finger food toothpicks with black tie attire: bow ties, top hats, mustaches, etc. In the spirit of the movies, decorate a popcorn station and label different spices based on the movies that are nominated this year.

 

What You’ll Need for Award Show Table Decorations

  • Toothpicks
  • Construction paper
  • Table cloth
  • Stars
  • Confetti or ticket stubs

 

Valentine’s Day

homemade-valentines-day-crafts-for-schoolBring on the love! Whether you’re throwing a dinner for two, a cute Valentine’s Day party with the kids or a Galentine’s Day party with all your girlfriends, this is the holiday for pink and red table decorations, candles, flowers and balloons! Get out the construction paper and cut pink and red hearts to decorate the table. An excellent addition to a Valentine’s Day table spread is paper mache letters. You can buy them at the store or make your own with newspaper, paint and glue.

 

Mardi Gras

The signature colors of Mardi Gras are green, purple, gold and silver. You can use bead necklaces, confetti, pompoms and feathers in these colors. You can make simple table decorations by filling martini glasses with beads and attaching masks to them. Take some feathers and stick them in the beads for a festive centerpiece. You can also place beads in candle holders and place tea lights inside for a smaller centerpiece.

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!

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!
