Finn's Football Bash

I love planning & hosting parties, but I also hate big groups of people.  So I like to keep things small & intimate!  With no family living here in Utah, we just invite some of our closest friends & neighbors to help celebrate on birthdays.  I knew our little sports fan would love a football party, so our theme was born...and easy!  I had a little creativity in my own mind, but I also went straight to pinterest for help with some of the details!  The goody bags were put together mostly with Amazon finds (eye black stickers for the win!).  But I particularly loved making footballs out of the icecream sandwiches & having Conor write up some "plays" on the butcher paper table.  We kept things easy (for the first time ever) and served pizza (Finn's favorite), chips & dips, and some fruits & veggies for a health factor.  Little gatorades for the kiddos, beer for the adults.  Note: blue gatorade stains faces.... in the most adorable way ever!







I also asked Conor to put together some field goal posts.  I thought all the kids would have a blast putting together a little pick up game.  And of course we needed a field, so a few cans of chalk spray paint later and we had yard lines and an end zone with FINN written across it.  It turned out perfectly and was the big hit of the party.  There was also plenty of tackling happening over certain footballs and what not.  Fun was surely had by all, but most importantly the birthday boy!  He loved it!  Every part of it!  He kept talking about his football party and gave me the sweetest surprise hug in the middle of it all.  That was worth all my efforts right there!









It was a great evening celebrating our little Finny.  He was the happiest boy being surrounded by many of his favorite people.  Days like these leave me full of joy.  Those final minutes laying with him before he fell asleep, reliving his party, were some of the best!  Welcome to 2 buddy, I have no doubt you'll keep being the little loveable pistol that you current are!
