Take It To The House

This is a sponsored post by BlogHer and P&G.

Football is a pretty big deal in our house. I've expressed my love for game day parties and flair in several of my blog posts. We will always cheer for our alma mater. When it comes to the NFL, we like many teams! Some days we cheer for the under dog, some days we cheer for what I consider my hometown team, the Cowboys. I'm from Texas so I feel the need to always show them support!

Since we love watching most NFL games, we tend to bounce around teams. Therefore, I don't really have specific flair for any particular team. You may remember my alma mater flair here :) So, for NFL game days, I usually pull out the fun gear. I can't say I always get into the football watching, but I certainly get into the football entertaining!

Depending what teams are playing somewhat determines my get together decor color schemes...

Several years ago, I found some fun football entertaining pieces on clearance!

Last year for the Superbowl, I made cupcakes and a buffalo chicken dip (recipe here).

If I see something for the Cowboys on sale, I'll pick it up! Same for the Vikings, Chiefs, etc. That way, whoever comes to my house, can have team spirit :)

The NFL is having a photo contest and wants YOU to participate! It's called “Take It To the House”. You can also win other prizes as well.  The GRAND PRIZE - You can win a trip to the PRO BOWL in HAWAII!
