Football Themed Baby Shower Ideas

One of the most perfect ways to celebrate a new little boy coming into this world is a football themed baby shower. It’s a fun party scheme for all guests and nothing represents the future of grass stains and touch football in the backyard better.

Football Baby Shower Invitations

Start your invitation with an exciting football-related phrase to grab attention and convey the theme of the event, “Touchdown! Join us for a Football Baby Shower”! Use bold and sporty fonts for the text.


Another option would be to create or purchase a Ticket Style Invitation. The invitation will resemble a game ticket. Include details like “Admit One” or “Baby Shower Pass” and incorporate football-themed graphics. Use football-related wording such as “Cheer for the newest MVP on the way!”


Football Baby Shower Decorations

A game goal shaped diaper cake is a great center to the event and it can even come into literal play during the shower as a little football toss game. Sporty banners with bold white lettering spelling out in the new arrival’s name and glittery green twine with miniature football cutouts are easy to hang up all around your shower venue in any place.

If you can hold the shower outside, this is an ideal place to really bring the feel of the football theme to the party as well. Get creative with table centerpieces by filling grass-green colored vases or mason jars with bright yellow daffodils and accent inserts with shiny bouncing footballs.

Use a small piece or pieces of turf for rugs throughout the venue for that football field look and when setting up a main event table for food, create a field goal backdrop with lots of green and white hues and, of course, football images. Set up a clothesline and pin up baby boy onesies in soft blue and football brown.

Foil balloons in the shape of footballs and tablecloths of baby blue doily runners offer a nice balance between the theme and the specialness of the upcoming little bundle of joy. Tape up printouts along the walls of some famous NFL teams and have football helmets, balls, and jerseys set around the venue as perfect theme accents for décor. Last but not least, football confetti sprinkled on the tables is a small accessory that packs a big impact with decoration.

Football Baby Shower Food

Coming up with the right kind of baby shower fare for a football themed event is probably the easiest thing you’ll do. This can consist of any and every type of treat and snack that are enjoyed during football games—which means a lot of finger foods!

Pigs in a blanket, chips, dips, popcorn, peanuts, pretzels, and veggie and cheese plates are all easy staples for a football themed baby shower and what’s really great is that these foods are easy to eat and have minimal mess.

Football platters and bowls mixed with matching football themed plates, cups, and napkins are perfect to serve the food with, and tin buckets filled with Gatorade are also a really cool touch.

For sweets, strawberries dipped in chocolate and decorated to look like footballs are fun and healthy, while football shaped sugar cookies, cupcakes with astro turf frosting, and cakepops that look like football helmets are spectacular details.

Of course, the cake is the true star of the main food table, so spare no pizzazz with this! A football shaped cake is a great idea, but you can also do something simpler, such as a smaller round cake with green frosting and a football helmet topper, or something a little more extravagant, such as a football helmet replica cake. Either way, use candle sparklers and fit in the message of congratulations to the mommy-to-be.

Football Baby Shower Games


Planning for a football-themed baby shower can be fun! Here are some game ideas that will bring the spirit of the game to your celebration:

Baby Football Toss

Set up a small football target or a cutout of a football player, and have guests take turns tossing a mini football through the target or at the cutout. You can assign different point values based on where the football lands. The guest with the highest score wins a prize.

Baby Trivia:

Create a trivia game with baby-related questions and football-themed twists. For example, you can ask questions like, “Which NFL player has the most children?” or “Which football team’s mascot is a baby?” Guests can write down their answers, and the person with the most correct answers wins.

Baby Name Scramble Huddle

Create a list of football-related words or terms and scramble the letters to create baby-related words. Guests have to unscramble the letters to form the correct baby-related words within a time limit. The guest with the most correct answers wins.

Guess the Player Baby Photo

Collect baby photos of famous football players and display them on a board or screen. Guests have to guess the player’s name based on their baby photos. The person with the most correct guesses wins a prize.

Baby Football Pictionary

Play a game of Pictionary using baby and football-related words. Guests can take turns drawing a word or phrase related to babies or football, and their team members have to guess what it is. The team with the most correct guesses wins.

Remember to adapt these games to fit your baby shower setting and guest preferences. Have fun incorporating the football theme into your baby shower and creating a memorable event for everyone!
