Throw an amazing Home Bowl party! At our spirited Home Bowl Party, brought to you by Evite in partnership with Coca-Cola® and NABISCO, our focus was on creating easy DIY decor and yummy, simple make-ahead recipes featuring Coca-Cola® and NABISCO products.
Spirited Home Bowl Party: Invitation
Spirited Home Bowl Party: Food and Drinks
Create a Halftime Snack Bar incorporating NABISCO products. We displayed a vintage wooden snack divider lined with food-safe tissue paper and filled the compartments with WHEAT THINS Snacks and RITZ Crackers. Galvanized cake stands anchor each side of our food table — one featuring OREO Cookie Cupcakes topped with green grassy icing, OREO Cookie crumbles (as dirt) and OREO Cookie Balls shaped as footballs, the second displaying Easy Banana Pudding Parfaits topped with NILLA Wafers and printable pennant flags.
Front and center on the Halftime Snack Bar: four delicious dips including Baked Pizza Dip, Easy Chili Dip, Bacon-Blue Cheese Dip and a Sun-Dried Tomato-White Bean Dip. Use our printables to label your dips on display.
Spirited Home Bowl Party: Decorations
Add an extra festive football feel to your spirited display by downloading and printing a “Home Bowl” pennant banner and displaying easy-to-make tissue tassel pompoms on sticks. While your guests enjoy watching the game, make it easy to grab their favorite Coca-Cola® product by setting up a self-serve beverage station featuring Coca-Cola® in mini cans and glass bottles on ice. The finishing touch? A simple tissue fringe pennant banner. Include some fun garnishes such as cherries, lemons and limes. Dress up your straws and toothpicks with printable party flags and decorative tissue pompom toothpicks. Be sure to have extra snacks on hand for guests to enjoy, such as yummy OREO Popcorn. TRISCUIT BLT Snackers are a winning choice to display on a food-safe slate tray embellished with “football play” drawings to show how to assemble this simple snack. These are a perfect snack to bring to the coffee table while you are watching the game.
During the game, pass out tissue tassel DIY pompoms on sticks that your guests can use to show their team spirit.
Spirited Home Bowl Party: Guest DIY
Bring your host or hostess a Football Sack of Snacks. Check out the DIY below to get the how-to.
Football Sack of Snacks:
- Cotton or burlap bags/sacks
- Iron-on transfer material (we prefer opaque transfer paper)
- Printable Anders Ruff “Snack Sack” design
- NABISCO snacks of your choice (WHEAT THINS Snacks, RITZ Crackers, TRISCUIT Crackers, OREO Cookies)
- Stiffened felt
- Wooden skewer
- Hot glue gun
- Full sheets of label paper
- Printable Anders Ruff “Score” label design
Step 1: Print and trim your “Football Sack of Snacks” on iron-on paper.
Step 2: Follow instructions on the iron-on transfer paper product to apply the printable to the cotton bag.
Step 3: Fill with NABISCO products and CocaCola®.
Step 4: To make the pennant, fold your felt in half. Draw a 5”x7” triangle pennant along the fold so that your skewer will be glued in the center of the felt, and once folded will create a double-sided pennant.
Step 5: Trim the triangle.
Step 6: Put hot glue in the center of the pennant and place a skewer inside. Close the pennant and add more hot glue to glue the triangle shut.
Step 7: Print the “score” printable from Anders Ruff on 8.5”x11” sheets of label paper.
Step 8: Trim the “score” graphic on the dotted lines and apply to the felt pennant.
