Dip Bowl Hangers

Serving Bowls and Platters 

Is your home stocked with enough serving bowls and plates for chips, dips, appetizers and more? Will your guests know where to grab a napkin or put their garbage? Make sure you have enough serving ware to keep everything organized! Use nice plastic plates that can be kept or tossed for guests, but make sure your serving bowls are sturdy and efficient, leaving plenty of room on the table for dips, salsas, and spreads. And for those of you heading to someone else’s house for a party or potluck, check out the NFL Casserole Carriers to keep your cold dishes cold and your warm dishes warm.

Party Glasses

NFL Party drink sets are a must-have item for this year’s big game! If your team isn’t in the championship game this year, you can get multiple different team sets and individuals can choose what cup they use. Complete with a coaster, your guests will never lose their cups!

A Decorative Touch

Every football party needs some sort of decorative touch, so if you’re not into the crazy tablecloths and streamers, check out the Team Pride Canvas Wall Art, or grab a few pendants. You can also get decorative NFL blankets and throws for the couch as decoration and to keep viewers warm throughout the party!
