Yes, you want to be in the football spirit on the big day, but do you really need to go overboard with expensive decorations? Skip the decorations altogether or make your own.

Cut artificial turf into rectangles and use some liquid paper to draw in yard lines. These mini football fields make great coasters. You can also cut brown fabric into football shapes for the same purpose. Create mini-banners with the help of digital images retrieved online, glue sticks and a little construction paper.

You might be able to find paper plates, tablecloths and napkins in your team’s colors.
