    Stop by your home improvement center and pick up as many feet of indoor/outdoor carpeting as you like to roll out the "green" carpet for your guests. A little white paint goes a long way as you can mark off the yards to your front door. Aurora, of Dawn to Dusk Designs, suggests using a level to keep your lines even. Adding a banner or field goal to your door is an extra touch that's sure to get fans excited for your party!

    Guests will have no trouble locating the cutlery when it's placed inside these adorable football holders! Michelle DuPuis, blogger and founder of Rust & Sunshine, explained how she crafted these clever caddies. 

    "I made a couple silverware caddies by painting two tomato cans with acrylic paint. I painted right over the paper label which looked a bit like leather once it was dry," she explains.

    We're grateful she forked over (get it?) this fun idea!
