Your Favorite Football Team Banner + the Easiest Appetizer

Football Season is upon us! Are you ready to throw the best (and easiest) party ever? I love how easy Just Artifacts makes it to decorate for your favorite football team… simply order all your party supplies in your team’s colors!

To create this team banner to hang during game viewings, all you need are bakers twine, tassel tissue kits (I used two 4-packs in each color), these adorable glitter letters spelling out your team’s name (in gold or silver!), and some tissue honeycombs for the ends. The tassels and letters are so easy to string up, it took less than 20 minutes to assemble.


Now for my favorite part of watching football: THE FOOD.
A well-executed nacho bar allows your guests to create their own plates with a variety of items of their choosing. It only takes about 30 minutes to prep everything… most of it can be bought already prepared in the store.

Nacho Bar Ideas:
tortilla chips (these popcorn boxes are great to hold your chips)
beans (black, pinto, or refried)
avocados or guacamole
sour cream
pico de gallo (diced tomatoes + onion, a tablespoon of finely chopped cilantro)
shredded lettuce (I usually grab a bag of pre-shredded lettuce)
green onions
sliced jalepenos
optional: shredded chicken, beef, or pork (to make it SUPER easy, I usually shred a rotisserie chicken from the store)
Nacho cheese sauce (see recipe below)

I firmly believe nacho cheese should be homemade, not from a can or jar. My absolute favorite cheese recipe is incredibly easy to make (and only has three ingredients).

Nacho Cheese Sauce
Two cups of shredded sharp cheddar cheese
One 12 oz can of evaporated milk
1 tablespoon corn starch

  1. In a small saucepan, mix shredded cheese and corn starch until evenly distributed.
  2. Over a medium heat, mix cheese mixture and evaporated milk, stirring occasionally until cheese is hot and melted.
  3. Add salt and pepper to taste. Keep warm for your guests and serve immediately.

And that’s it!! The yummiest nacho bar ever. The guests and fellow football fans will go head over heels for your appetizer. Your party will definitely be THE place to be Sunday nights.
