I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it with glee.  We love football and hosting parties in this house, and I welcome any opportunity to combine those two joys are mine.  When hosting football parties (or any party for that matter!) I love to create photo booths or “selfie stations” for my guests.  I think these are so fun, and always add a really unique twist on parties. For my supplies, I like to shop at CVS.  You can purchase the SNICKERS® with football packaging there, as well as your other party essentials.  From drinks to tableware, CVS has you covered.  You can find SNICKERS® products with other candy items right at the front of the store! CVS also has a digital coupon right now for 1.00 off of 2 SNICKERS® items!

Once I retrieved my SNICKERS® products, I went with regular bars and SNICKERS® Crisper dsc_0387-2

I knew my party guests would love SNICKERS® as a party treat.   SNICKERS® are always a crowd pleaser.  For this selfie station, I found a football theme plastic table on clearance last year.  I simply taped it to the wall to create a green football inspired photo backdrop.  In general for football parties, I prefer to take 2-3 plastic tablecloths in my team’s colors.  Lay them on top of each other on the crowd, and cut them into one inch strips up until you’re about 4 inches from the top of the table clothes.  Either twist or braid those a couple times and let the strands fall.  It creates a very cute effect that looks great in photos.
