Scheduling your baby shower with a football theme can be a fun and exciting way to celebrate the imminent arrival of your little one. Once you’ve selected your football-themed baby shower invitations, there are numerous other ways to incorporate this theme into your event. From decorations to games and food, here are some ideas to make your football-themed baby shower truly memorable.


  1. Team Colors: Incorporate the colors of your favorite football team into your decorations. Hang streamers, balloons, and banners in these colors throughout the venue.
  2. Football Field Backdrop: Create a backdrop that resembles a football field by using green tablecloths or artificial turf as the base. Add white lines using tape or paint for an authentic touch.
  3. Jersey Banners: Hang personalized baby jerseys with the parents’ last names or the baby’s due date as banner decorations.
  4. Football Balloons: Fill the space with football-shaped balloons and regular balloons in team colors.

Games and Activities

  1. Predict the MVP: Have guests predict which parent the baby will take after more in terms of looks or personality traits. Provide attributes like “fastest runner” or “best dancer” for guests to choose from.
  2. Baby Football Toss: Set up a mini-football toss game where guests can practice their throwing skills by aiming for targets such as cutouts of football players, goalposts, or baskets.
  3. Guess the Baby’s Stats: Place a poster board with spaces for guests to write down their predictions about the baby’s birth stats, such as weight, height, and time of birth.
  4. Diaper Changing Relay Race: Divide guests into teams and have them compete in changing diapers on dolls while being timed.

Food and Drinks

  1. Tailgate-Inspired Menu: Serve popular tailgate foods like sliders, hot dogs, nachos, and chicken wings. Consider having a build-your-own burger or taco bar for guests to customize their meals.
  2. Football-Shaped Treats: Get creative with football-shaped treats like cookies decorated with icing to resemble footballs, mini sandwiches cut into the shape of footballs, or cupcakes with football-themed toppers.
  3. Referee Refreshments: Serve drinks in clear cups labeled with referee stripes using black electrical tape or markers.

Remember to have plenty of non-alcoholic drink options available for the mom-to-be and other guests who may prefer them.

By incorporating these ideas into your football-themed baby shower, you can create an event that brings together the excitement of welcoming a new baby with the love of the game. From decorations that reflect team colors to games and activities that celebrate both parents and their little one, this theme is sure to score big among your guests.
