I absolutely love football season and all of the parties that surround it!  Tailgating is such a fun excuse to get together with friends and, well, have a ball!  My wonderful friend Maureen Anders, of Anders-Ruff Custom Designs, designed this football party with a vintage flair.  I really like how Maureen kept the designs neutral so that you can add your team colors in and it all goes together perfectly!


Maureen designed all of the paper goods that you see- the signs, banners, favor bags, labels, buffet signs…and the invitation. I love the cool feel of the invitation that sets the tone for the party~


The green “turf grass” adds an authentic detail to the party- I love how she displayed Football Macarons in the grass!


Maureen served cupcakes with chocolate-covered-almond footballs.  Notice the cupcake wrappers- they are another perfect touch!


Scoop chips and popcorn from a vintage-looking serving container- just like something you would find in an old dime store…



There are so many great ideas on throwing a Vintage Football Party or Tailgate Party on Anders-Ruff’s site!


Even if your team doesn’t win… your tailgate will!
