We love football season at our house, so what better way to celebrate our little linebacker than with a Football Themed Party?!
Although I don't know how to keep things simple, nor do I know where the line between "so fun!" and "overboard" is, I truly did try to not overthink the process.
For décor, I kept things pretty simple, a few banners, some DIY projects, pictures of G, and football paraphernalia that we already had at home.
Food and Beverages are always the main focus of a party, regardless of what time it is.

No Dunaway party is complete without a photobooth. Although I really wanted to have a custom background made, I found out it was EXPENSIVE, then I wanted to make my own, but truly who has time for that?! So I settled on a good old party city backdrop... that I now have endless rolls of - Super Bowl Party anyone???
Amber & Jordan let us borrow their bounce house for the backyard, we had bags outside and my parents have a pool table. We got some rain, but it cleared up after not too long giving us some relief from the heat!
We had a ball for everyone to sign for the birthday boy
& Take homes for the kiddos included mini footballs, candy, balloon punchy thingies (technical term, obviously) and foam fingers.
Overall we had an amazing night with our best friends and family. & Sweet Baby G was a happy camper!
