With the 2013 NFL season kicking off this weekend and college football under way, we definitely have a little pigskin on our minds. So when we spotted this awesome chevron-patterned and striped football party, thrown by Valencia Cheatham of Jewel Box Creative Studios for her 2-year-old son, Alden, we were totally hooked. A party full of graphic patterns, sweet details (some of which are available on Valencia's Etsy shop), not a single video-game character, and just a touch of football? Yes, please!
"I didn't want the football theme to hit you in your face when you walked in," Valencia says. "I like to take a subtle approach to styling. I chose to focus mostly on the colors, which were navy, yellow, white, and brown. I wanted the party to have a modern, preppy feel."
Whether the party inspires your own kid-friendly afternoon of cheering on your favorite team, or a birthday party of your own, our verdict is a definitive — touchdown!
