Football Party Backdrop and Table Runner. Super easy and cheap ways to decorate your football party table

Football parties are so much fun! Fire up the grill, put on the game and if your like me you have to add some decorations.

You might not have everything around the house but there are only a couple things you need to make your food table into a football table. There are a few changes you can make for different sports and this is fun for kids parties as well as watching the game. You can also make a backdrop jersey in the color of your team with the number of your favorite player. read more

Game Day Desserts for Super Bowl Sunday or a football party

With the Super Bowl right around the corner and the Playoffs going on I have been whipping up some game day desserts. This week I have a lot of game day fun to share with you all. I am extra excited this year for the playoffs and possible the Super Bowl since my team the Arizona Cardinals are playing in the NFC Championship. Being a Cardinals fan is not always easy but they have been on fire this season! Ok, I have to admit I am not a crazy fan that follows everything but I am an Arizona native so I am for the Arizona teams all the way. Whether your team is in the Super Bowl or not it is always a good time. I leave the grilling and most of the food up to everyone else. Although, I can make a really good cheese dip. I am all about the game day desserts and I’ve come up with some fun ones! read more

These candy love bugs are cute and easy to make. I made them with my little love bug :). My obsession with candy eyes continues because they just make everything cute!

Ok she’s a helper for a minute then she gets bored and I finish up. Luckily these love bugs are easy to make and no baking involved.

Star Wars Party Games. Fun games for a Star Wars party

Star Wars party game time! My daughter was on break from school so we have been playing with a lot of Star Wars toys and some Star Wars games. You have to get creative to entertain a kid on break.

Candy Lightsabers

| Candy, Crafts, Desserts, Star Wars

Candy Lightsabers are the perfect easy dessert for a Star Wars party! #starwars

The force is strong with these candy lightsabers! After Christmas my place is Star Wars everything. My daughter is the biggest Star Wars fan, Darth Vader in particular. All she wanted for Christmas was a Darth Vader costume and a red lightsaber. She is all about the dark side of the force. I should maybe be concerned that she already at 4 has a thing for the bad guys. If we are watching a movie she always wants the parts with the bad guys. My adorable little weirdo! That is why I needed to make some kind of Star Wars dessert and these candy lightsabers were really easy to make. read more
