You sound perfectly normal to us. You’ll understand why when you read about some of our favorite football-related party items.
Football Party Decorations
How can you have a party without a banner? Let people know there’s a party going on with a banner that says, “Go team!”
Want something more subtle? Try a banner that looks like a football field with yard lines.
If simplicity is your goal, hang a banner decorated with footballs.
Don’t use a run-of-the-mill tablecloth when you can cover your table with the look of a football field using a green table cover decorated with yard lines and hash marks.
Decorate a second table with a protective cover festooned with footballs.

A second option is to wrap your finished cupcake in a brown paper wrapper with laces that make it look like a football.
