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 boys' party full of graphic patterns, sweet details (some of which will soon be 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." Our verdict: touchdown!
