Pigskin Party Fun!

I am still planning a Gumbo Football Playoff party in January but I'm trying to decide if I want to theme the party with one of the playoff teams or just keep it a generic football party. My beloved New Orleans Saints are 8-0 right proud! I'm hoping they keep it up and earn a place in the playoffs. If so, I might have to lean towards a Saints theme party which of course would tie in the whole Gumbo thing:)

Either way we're still going to have a football party and we're still going to center the party around a huge Cajun-style Gumbo. Can't wait! Here are a couple of things I'll probably have at the party.

I love these football lanterns from Oriental Trading. These will look great hanging over the appetizer table combined with other different colored and sized round lanterns (black and gold, maybe:) And some fun things hanging from the lanterns. Also, these individual football cakes from Baking Bites are adorable. They will be so cute on the table. Stay tuned for more!
