Football. Beer. Pigs in a Blanket. AstroTurf table. That's what the Superbowl means to me...

Take a look at our Super Bowl party pics to get an idea of how we roll...

So here's the thing. Mr. Fo has this ridiculously awesome artistic talent that comes in handy for all sorts of random things...i.e. making our kitchen table into a football table and freestyle drawing the Superbowl symbol ... How awesome is he?!

He also made the fleur de lis and horseshoe symbol out of poster board and we taped it to the wall. People thought we had painted our wall with the symbols!! Ummm no... we're not THAT dedicated....Note the white dots on the Colts symbol. For this detail, we used the always handy "Wite Out" ... shh... our little secret...

We bought this LOVELY AstroTurf flooring from Home Depot (yes... people use this for flooring), laid down some athletic tape for yard lines and we had a football field. We even color coordinated the plates and "plastic ware" ... There were more Saints plates used than Colts plates- just FYI.

Our end zones rocked...

Food was delish - Chili with a Toppings Bar, Spinach Artichoke Dip - IN A BREAD BOWL, Pizza Rolls and the ever popular, quick to disappear Pigs in a Blanket. Look at them - are they not the cutest things ever?!

You had your choice of Saints Brew (Dixie Beer - made in New Orleans) and Colts Brew (the always classy Colt 45 - YES, they still make this!) I bought small plastic trashcans, wrapped them with construction paper and we had cheap beer buckets!

We also had some non-partisan beer in an adorable Beer Tub... Beer me please...

Mini cupcakes in coordinating colors (well... the Colts turned out a Tiffany blue color - but it was so pretty I left it that way )... and Football Cookies - LACES OUT for those of you that get that Ace Ventura reference. Hee Hee. Note the ADORABLE pennant flags in both the cupcakes and the flowers in the picture below- those are from the absolutely awesome Make Merry blog. They were nice enough to send me the template... I think I put them to good use!

The flower arrangements were at the corners of each end zone in mini galvanized buckets...Very realistic to have flowers in the end zone, don't you think? ;)

The little arrangement with the floating spider mum was in the bathroom. Nobody ever forgot they were at a Superbowl party!

Mr. Fo even used the extra turf to cover our coffee table. We really loved the built in coaster feature... so much that we are keeping it permanently. (Not.)

Take a look at this - Peyton Manning and
Reggie Bush managed to join us in our
Honeymoon and Wedding photos...

Even though I am always pulling for my boy Peyton, I was happy the Saints won - and how cute was Drew Brees with his little son at the end of the game?
I almost shed a tear... I'm a sucker for a quarterback with a cute baby...

I hope you enjoyed our little Superbowl Soiree - we had a great time although its safe to say I definitely socialized more than I watched the game...

NOTE: Most of these pictures were taken by my good friend Amanda - check out her post about the party at her fabulous design blog, CasaBrasi.


  1. SO AMAZING!! I thought you couldn't possibly get any cuter/more creative until I got to the end of the post and you had inserted Peyton Manning and Reggie Bush into the pictures...that is just awesome and hilarious! So wonderful to see you this weekend - wish I could have stayed for the party!

  2. Love it, Jackie!! The beer buckets are so creative, and I totally cracked up when I saw the wedding photo 'alterations'.

  3. LOVE every lil detail! The table is absolutely fabulous!!! The food looks crazy yummy and I love the lil flowers!

  4. ok wow! such a GREAT party. Can you come do my next party? If you do Stella & Dot it will be a breeze for you ;)

  5. What a great party table! You are so creative, and so fair, too. Both teams represented. Not so much at my house, only Saints fans. My husband is from the New Orleans area, so no Colts stuff at my house. Can't wait to see what you do for Valentine's Day. Blessings.

  6. terrific!! you are SO creative. love it!

  7. It was a great party! Those pigs-in-a-blanket were so cute and were fast dissappearing into my tummy! Well done J Fo!

  8. Holy cow. You guys went all out. What a fabulous looking parTAY!

  9. Jackie you are hilarious and I'm loving your blog. If you ever want to post some ideas on throwing a mid-May bridal shower be my guest :) I could use some ideas... Hope you are doing well!

  10. Ok, I am VERY impressed by the decorations and food! Your husband has an amazing talent! I bet you had a great time. I had to cheer for the Saints. I always go for the underdog anyway and NOLA needed a break! Plus I've got a ton of cousins in New Orleans and I knew how much it meant to them.

  11. This is amazing!! Love love love the table! And I love the flowers in the end zone, the beer buckets, everything! So creative!

  12. You also had some veggie friendly finger food! You should brag about that too... my people like that kind of thing!

  13. Okay Jackie~ I missed this one! Just saw it on creative party place! Good job!
