Easy Entertaining For Game Day + Game Day Printables

Thank you Tide plus Febreze Freshness for sponsoring this conversation.

Back in my college days fall Saturdays were spent cheering on the Badgers at Camp Randall stadium. Now they will be filled with Saturday morning soccer games and catching up on housework and house projects, but we still like to make time to cheer on our Alma Mater. When it comes to game day entertaining, I like to keep it festive, simple and cheap.

We created these varsity letter pennant printables for every letter in the alphabet so you can spell out whatever team suites you. You can find them at the bottom of the page. Print, cut, fold tab over string and tape. It really is that easy.

We also created a fun chalkboard football playbook printable, which is super cute to decorate with.

We also created cute little football pennant cupcake toppers. You could use them in sandwiches or cheese cubes or other appetizers as well. Print, cut, fold around toothpick, adhere.

I used paper bags as serving bowls. These are just the large lunch bags. Crumble them to give them a good texture and then fold over the top. This is a simple, cheap way to create lots of serving bowls. Makes for super easy clean up. They aren’t breakable and are portable for convenient snacking. Cannot beat it!

Another simple, festive and affordable entertaining trick is to customize water bottles. My mother-in-law did this with fun polka dot tape for my sister-in-law’s baby shower. Duck Brand makes collegiate duct tape. Just rip off the water bottle label and wrap it in your collegiate tape.

I don’t know about your house, but in our house–when a 4 year old boy sees football, he wants to play football. Half-time is the perfect time to head out and get your game on. Quinn absolutely loves tackling. Soccer games and backyard football games along with all the other fall fun means lots of stains, stink and laundry. Tide Plus Febreze Freshness Sport is:

Hi, I'm Megan--the crazy mom of three behind this blog. Please don't be intimidated by the name. Note it doesn't say BALANCED Home. We hardly have it all together, but together we have it all. Or at least that is what I tell myself. I love rearranging, decorating, creating, crafting, celebrations, family, and holidays. I share a little bit of all of that and more on Balancing Home. I am married to my college sweetheart (Is that a thing? Well now it is.) and he is a very talented designer. I use him for his skills so I can offer up sweet printables to all of you. If you want to learn more randomness about me or my blog, stop by my about page.

    I can’t begin to tell you how grateful I am for this printables collection. I’m in the middle of planning my son’s freshmen football banquet on a very small booster budget. Thank goodness for talented people like yourself and the sponsors who make these printables free! I’ll post pictures next month. Thanks again from one relieved team mom. Garden Grove High School, Argonauts!

      I’m so glad it came in handy! That just makes me so happy and all the time we spend on it worth it.

    Love meeting fellow Badgers! I swear I responded to this comment, but alas—there is no response.

    Is there a tutorial somewhere for the tassel garland? I tried to see if I could find it, but couldn’t. I’m throwing a Badger themed baby shower next month and it would be perfect! Actually, this whole post is perfect (and the Badger birthday post too) ! Thanks so much for the inspiration!
