Practically all of San Diego was tuned in to the Chargers game a couple weeks ago, when our home town football team here in San Diego was seeking their first playoff win since 2008. This was a big deal for our city, and we used it as a great excuse to eat some great food and cold drinks while watching the game!
I wanted a unique way to serve some retro style glass bottle sodas that I had been saving up for the game, so I used a fun idea from the Dollar Tree Value Seekers Club that I just love!
- Balloons (from Dollar Tree- I picked out the blue and yellow colored balloons)
- Large metal tub
- San Diego Chargers Sticker (or your favorite football team’s sticker- make sure it’s repositionable if you don’t want it there permanently)
- Mini footballs (from Dollar Tree)
I used frozen balloons, as suggested in the directions, but chose to pick out and use the light blue, dark blue, and yellow balloons to go with my San Diego Chargers team colors. Instead of using a large bowl, I used a large drink tub that I already had that was perfect for holding our drinks and ice!
After adding the Charger bolt to the front of the basket, and some frozen mini footballs to the inside of my tub cooler, we were all set to cheer on our team in style! Much more festive than plain ice, don’t you think?
