With football fans across the country gearing up for the big game, we thought it would be fun to get in on the action and highlight all the ways Snapfish can help you show off your team pride. So, if you’re planning a watch party for the big day, or just looking to add some spirit to your space, we’ve got some super ideas you shouldn’t pass on!
Show your colors
Your #1 goal as a fan? Displaying loyalty to your team, of course! If you’re looking to incorporate spirited designs into your home, we have two you’ll really love. First up is School Monogram, which offers six different color choices and is available to use on our blankets, pillows, towels, and acrylic paperweights. Next is our Team Sport design, which is very similar, just with simpler stripes and more room for personalized text versus just a monogram. It’s available to print on pillows, placemats, and towels in your choice of red, green, and light blue (towel only). Both designs make great use of the Yearbook Outline font, which looks amazing against your team’s bold colors.
If you want something a bit more subtle, try decorating a room with a color palette inspired by your team. Start by painting an accent wall with one of your team’s main colors, then choose a corresponding color for throw pillows + blankets. You can even add a splash of team spirit to your bathroom with our shower curtains and towels! Want to try it out? Simply pick one of our products and choose “design your own”. Once you’re in the project builder, select Backgrounds and scroll through the available solid color options. With over 100 color choices you’re sure to find the perfect match!
Party like a pro
There’s nothing more exciting than spending game day with other fans! If you’re looking to host a party for more than just close friends or family, you’ll need some party invitations. We love this Let’s Party invite with a simple background that lets your event details shine. On the day of your event, let guests know they’re at the right place by decorating the front door + windows with posters or place one of our yard signs at the edge of your driveway.
Refreshments are a must at every party so make sure you have plenty of drinkware on hand. If you want to use a sports-specific design, try our Thanks Coach or Team Player photo mugs. Otherwise, you can always customize cups, tumblers, and water bottles with your team’s colors. With the beverages taken care of, it’s time to tackle the food. Most likely no one will be sitting formally at the dining room table, so you can treat it as more of a serving station for chips, dips, and various finger foods. Avoid party fouls by making sure the table is protected from unsightly scratches and spills. Our coasters, placemats, and trivets are ready to suit up and take the field! You can go all in on the football theme with these fun Football Field placemats.
Another way to add team spirit to your spread? By coordinating the food with your team colors too. For example, if your team’s colors are blue you could use blue tortilla chips, blueberries, and blue raspberry soda. For the color orange try cheddar cheese, carrots, mango salsa, and orange soda. Whatever you decide to do, have fun with it!
Remember to play it safe and mask up if you’re meeting up for tailgates or in-person parties. To keep things festive, personalize our Football face mask with your favorite player’s number. If you really want to show your loyalty, coordinate the Jersey Number face mask with our Team Jersey t-shirt.
Banners, pennants, and other decorations usually come down once the season is over. What’s another way you can incorporate sports décor into your home all year long without taking away from your main style? One simple idea we love is taking a motivating message from a favorite player or coach and turning it into wall art. Just do a quick google search and you’re sure to find something meaningful you can place on framed posters, canvas, or photo tiles.
Here are a couple quotes from Walter Payton that may inspire you:
- “Tough times go away, tough people do not.”
- “Work hard or don’t work at all.”
Once you’ve found your quote, you can play around in our project builder to see what font looks best. To dress up the quote a little more, don’t forget the embellishments! You can find football-themed flourishes in the Sports & Activities category. The fun part about our embellishments is you can add them as finishing touches or resize them to make them the main focus.
