Bittersweet Super Bowl

Like many, many peo­ple, our fam­ily gets together to watch the big game on Super Bowl Sun­days every year, but this year, OUR team, the San Fran­cisco 49ers, were play­ing, which made it all that much more spe­cial and excit­ing! My hus­band was born in the Bay Area of North­ern Cal­i­for­nia, where he grew up a Nin­ers fan. And when my fam­ily and I first moved to the US, the team held their train­ing camp in our town and we used to watch them prac­tice. Need­less to say, we are long-time fans of the city and team! And although they ended up not win­ning {after a very stress­ful, anx­ious and ulcer-inducing game!}, we had such a fun and yummy time root­ing for our team that it almost makes up for the loss… almost. ;)

Our spread of game day good­ies was super fun to put together! Since my hus­band is a die hard foot­ball fan, I had already col­lected quite a bit of foot­ball table­ware through­out the years, which I uti­lized to either hold the var­i­ous savory and sweet dishes or as added decor. I cre­ated some print­a­bles to adorn the cup­cakes {gasp! no fon­dant?!}, paper straws and for food labels, which related back to the sport or city of San Fran­cisco and its gold-mining mas­cot. I re-used my black­board {orig­i­nally from the “Grow­ing Up 80’s” party} as a back­drop and drew the Super Bowl logo with chalk. The table had a vin­tage feel, espe­cially with the black and white images on the dis­played plates, with just a tad of glitz in the glit­ter gold chevron back­ground in the paper elements!

This def­i­nitely ended up being a bit­ter­sweet post, but the fun time we had cheer­ing on our team and spend­ing time with fam­ily ensured it wasn’t a total loss! And here’s hop­ing we can do it all again next year! ♥
