In honor of the Superbowl (currently playing on our flat screen as I begin writing, which should reveal my level of interest), I thought I’d throw a few ideas on a theme your way…
(That was the tamest image I could find by googling the words “football” and “woman.” Don’t even try it with “girl.” *Sigh.*)
Okay, first, you’ll need to answer a few quick questions to determine if this post is really for you. Here we go:
Does your man love the football? Are you planning your wedding? If that’s two affirmatives, then I have a three-part question for you; answer ‘Yes’ to any of these three parts, and you might love this post…
Do you love football, too / Are you just looking for any stunt that’ll get your man more interested and involved in the wedding planning / Are you having a really, really laid back celebration? If there’s a yes in there somewhere, then it’s quite possible that this post is tailor-made for you!
To start, there’s your football-themed wedding cake topper. Not bad, not bad at all. Want it? Find it here. For other cake topper ideas – much less kitschy, much more cutesy – take a look at one of my most popular posts thus far, FRIDAY’S FAB FINDS | lovely + fun cake toppers | Wow, I Actually LIKE These…
Moving right along… let’s talk food. (Yay!) One thing I can get behind, no matter what, is a good ol’ fashioned pig-in-a-blanket (err, mini hot dog – same difference). I apologize to the sticklers out there, really, I’m sorry, but I’m so a fan of this tastiest of finger foods. And just look at this arrangement we have below! Three de-freakin’-licious looking appetizer suggestions, plus one questionable but most likely thirst-quenching boozy drink idea (beer margaritas? I was thinking the same thing), all geared towards a fantastic Superbowl get-together. So, why not your wedding, too?
I found the above over at the always inspiring Hostess with the Mostess, who credits them to Everyday at Rachael Ray.
Offer those mouth-watering comfort foods, not to mention the booze, during your cocktail hour, and your friends and relatives will thank you for inviting them to your wedding and mean it. Not to mention the effect it could have on all of the men who got dragged along by your currently single girlfriends or cousins (men who don’t yet know how cool you and your hubby-to-be are). You can imagine how pleasantly surprised said bachelors will be when they realize the sheer amount of joy a man can experience… at a wedding. Women everywhere will thank you, for doing your part, however unwittingly, to make at least one man out there a little bit more comfortable with the idea of getting married. WOW what a tangent.
Next up: DESSERT.
Want to sink your teeth into those tantalizing treats? The spirited cuppies were created for Celebrations by Jeanne Benedict, and featured on Hostess with the Mostess.
Oh how sweet it is. You know what’s great about dessert? I mean besides everything? When it comes to football-themed-wedding-appropriate dessert, the only thing footbally about it will be the appearance. Oh yes, it may look like a football, but that cupcake is not going to taste like a football. It’s going to taste like a moist, sugary, delicious cupcake. And it will be AWESOME.
So, what the heck. I can support this. :)
