With the help of so many talented ladies in the party business, Jennifer was able to make a memorable day for her entire family. This one is full of tailgating ideas and football party fabulous-ness so get ready for some fun!
Inspired by Amanda's Football party table, Jennifer "took the ball and ran with it" creating a room full of fantastic football-themed tables. Using Amanda's FOOTBALL PARTY PRINTABLES COLLECTION, which is customizable to any team and team colors, was a terrific starting place for all things BYU her dad's college alma mater.
Jennifer says, "The highlight of the event was definitely the dessert table. Decorated to look like a football field, with astro turf used as the table covering, the dessert table was the focal point of the party design. Striped pennant flags were hung using denim twine from The Twinery.
PVC pipe was cut, assembled and painted to look like field goal posts and held letters which spelled out the honoree’s name: DALE. Bleachers were fashioned out of foam core board to house delicious ‘quarterback’ cupcakes from Cupcake Chic with custom fondant toppers by Two Sugar Babies.
JP Creatibles outdid herself with the most stunning football cookies I have ever laid eyes on! Footballs, custom BYU jersey and BYU logo cookies with the most detailed design work I have ever seen, were the talk of the party! And football themed ’Cornerback’ cookies were iced and topped with gorgeous fondant cookie toppers crafted by Edible Details.
Beautifully hand dipped and decorated ‘play action’ pretzel rods were prepared by Pretzels Pleaze. Notice the cute sugar footballs adorning the pretzels! No detail was spared! There where ‘wideout whoopee pies’, ‘blocker brownies’, ‘touchdown treats’ in apothecary jars, maple bar ‘cougar paws’, ‘goal time’ cake pops (lovingly created by Johanna Dellino of Pop.O.Licious Cake Pops), and more!"
With the help of Anders Ruff, Jennifer was able to design
the perfect invitation to set the stage for the big event.
Jennifer gives us a few more details.... "Adorable football boxes from Nashville Wraps helped house chips on the buffet table and fun party favors on the kids' table. Guests sat down to tables outfitted to look like a piece of the football field itself. Astro turf was cut to fit round tables. White ribbon and die cut numbers were glued on to look like yard lines and markers. Centerpieces were made from coordinating college logo balloons, gift bags, pom poms, footballs and coordinating candy.
A delicious 3-layer cake was displayed on its own table, topped with an amazing fondant cake topper by Two Sugar Babies. Strawberries were dipped in chocolate and decorated to look like their pigskin counterparts.
Guests were given a take home favor bag from Nashville Wraps adorned with BYU-themed printables from Amanda's Parties To Go.
Each place setting on Jennifer's guest tables was outfitted with drink flags, water bottle wraps and napkin wraps from the football collection in BYU's team colors.
Jennifer says, "I love it when professionals collaborate to make an event even more amazing!"
I agree, Jennifer. Fabulous job and thanks so much for sharing with all of us!
