DIY Mardi Gras Balloon Decorations

I’m so excited to share this fun balloon DIY with you… especially since Fat Tuesday is exactly one week from TODAY! These Mardi Gras Balloons are playful and festive – just like anything Mardi-related should be – but they’re also surprisingly quick and simple to create.

My initial idea was to focus on a bouquet of gold “paint-dipped” balloons with colorful feather tassels, but I couldn’t resist the idea of getting some Mardi Gras masks in there too… so I ended up with 2 versions of balloons: one with printable masks and one with the “gold-dipped” effect + glittery gold words. I think the design variety makes the balloon bunch feel even more festive, and they ALL have the feather tassels to help tie everything together. ;)

Pop Art Football Party Ideas

Just like many of you out there, football season is a big deal in our household! And as much as I love dreaming up creative football party inspiration and hosting game day get-togethers at home, I’ll admit that things can start to feel a bit redundant sometimes. I mean, there are only so many ways to recreate “football laces” on your food and cover everything in grass green and yard lines, right?

SO…. for my final Coca-Cola and NABISCO Home Bowl post, I thought it would be fun to try out something totally different. Instead of the standard green, white, and brown football party palette, this one’s filled with bright, bold colors that POP!

It’s also filled with playful Pop Art Inspired Football Ideas – including free printables, an easy tutorial for DIY drink coasters, and a tasty recipe for Baked Parmesan Zucchini Sticks that are so YUMMY you’ll forget you’re eating veggies. ;)

Free Printables - Football Pop Art Sign & Sauce Labels

The zucchini sticks are rolled in a mixture of crushed TRISCUIT Crackers, cheese, and garlic before baking, and served with a trio of dipping sauces that I dubbed Red Zone, Blitz, and Regulation Ranch, which I will further explain below!

Football Referee Inspired OREO Pudding Pops

Earlier this month, I shared a couple savory recipes for game day that were geared especially for all the bacon lovers out there, so now it’s time to talk about something SWEET. And let’s also make it nice and chocolate-y while we’re at it, shall we?!

These Layered OREO Pudding Pops were inspired by the bold stripes on football referee jerseys. They’re fun to make and simple enough for the kids to help with too! You might notice that the stripes aren’t perfect… and that’s okay, because neither are we. ;) These treats are all about scoring big on taste while giving a playful nod to the most popular sport in America, with their high contrast stripes & vibrant penalty-flag-yellow sticks. Read on for all the tasty details…

During a recent football party brainstorming session, my husband and I came up with this fun idea for creating a giant Football Play Inspired Wall Backdrop made out of mylar balloon X’s and O’s! I used the small 7″ mylar balloons and 8-player teams for this diagram to keep the design reasonably sized for a […]
