I didn't take half as many photos as I had planned. But here are a few photos so you can get a glimpse of "Super Bowl Sunday" at the Lundby's.

They go great with the football field tablecloths. I have been using these tablecloths for football parties since my husband's 30th birthday party. I picked up green grass colored fabric at Wal-mart, (about 6 years ago, back when it was $1.00 a yard) and then my super creative sister Rita taped on strips of white duct tape to make the yard lines. After each use, I wash them in cold water and hang them to dry. I think I've only replaced the duct tape on one of the tablecloths, the other two have survived multiple washings.
Since the Super Bowl and Valentines Day are so close together, I figured I'd bring out a few valentine items too.

We wanted to make the party a little more interesting, so my husband came up with a little game.
Before the game started, players had to write down two things.
1. Which team they thought would be ahead at the end of each quarter.
2. The total points of the game at the end of each quarter.
So there was a prize given out at the end of each quarter. It was a lot of fun. We had a collection of prizes, I had been collecting football items and a few kitchen items for awhile.
Dev won the first quarter prize. He chose a "sugar-shaker".
I got too caught up talking and laughing and eating... and I neglected to get photos of the winners of the other quarters, so I'll see if I can find another photo of him, yep him! One person won all three of the other quarters. He won a football, a football lunch box and a nerf football.

We even did a bit of crafting at the party. I'm getting a bit long-winded here, so I'll tell you more about the crafts in another post... click here to see how to make the pipe cleaner roses.
