The 2017 College Football Playoff National Championship game is coming up and we have some great tips to help you put together a drink station for your friends and family. First, you’ll want to stop by Target to stock up on Dr Pepper because there is a Cartwheel offer that will save you 10% on all packs and sizes of Dr Pepper.
I love that the cans of Dr Pepper are already dressed up for the game. The football themed cans look great with our spread. I like to deck out our drink table with a football theme, you can use footballs, pom poms, foam fingers, helmets and more. I have found banners in Bullseyes Playground at Target that work well too.
For this party I used a set of cork coasters. I added a football theme to them by using my Cricut to cut vinyl images and words that fit our theme. After the party I can easily peel the images off and save the coasters for a future party. I love how the coasters can easily be customized with the colors of your favorite team.
Not only do the coasters add the the theme of the party, but they also keep your furniture from getting ruined. Another great feature is that they all have different images so your guests can easily keep track of their drinks.
A great way to add fun and flavor to your football drink station is to have a drink recipe that your guests can easily put together. They can choose to enjoy their soda straight from the can or they can add a fun twist.
I used our recipe for Dr Pepper Tropical Blitz and wrote it out on a chalkboard. This makes it easy for our guests to know exactly what they need to make the fun Dr Pepper drink recipe.
We kept a bucket of ice on hand as well as the coconut syrup. We had limes sliced so guests could easily add them to their drink. You can customize your drink station to match your team colors by buying cups and straws that match your favorite team.
One of my favorite tips for football parties is to buy cups, napkins and plates after Christmas when they are on clearance. The College Football Championship happens shortly after Christmas so it is a great time to buy party supplies, especially if your favorite team color is red. I think the green holiday cups work well too because when I think of colors that represent football I immediately think of the green to represent the field.
Our buckets of yellow napkins labeled “Penalty Flags” always gets lots of compliments. It’s a fun and easy way to add to the football theme.
Have fun at your next football party with some of these fun drink ideas. Load the Dr Pepper Cartwheel offer now so you are all set to save when you head to Target. The 10% Cartwheel offer is good on all packs and sizes of Dr Pepper and is valid through 1/9/17.
