With September Saturdays here, thoughts in the Deep South turn to COLLEGE FOOTBALL!!!
It is a humbling and exhilarating experience to be near college stadiums on Saturdays in the fall. Team spirit (sometimes known as fanaticism) reigns on the field, in the stands, in the parking lot, and in the backyard.
Get ready to show some school pride and support with college team officially licensed products available in select stores and online. You will be the envy of the tailgating lot and the neighborhood!
Check out our college gear - great for going to the game or outfitting your college student in style. Team pride can be shown in your key chains and lanyards.
Tailgating fashion must-haves include stadium seats and tents filled with your coolers and rolling coolers.
Sit in style at the game on your cushion and hard back stadium seats.
Decorate your home and outdoor living area as THE Saturday football destination station. Greet your guests with doormats, flags, and yard signs.
A college team gnome will surely make your guests feel special and grace your outdoor living area.
Create a home fashion statement with a wide assortment of rugs, carpet tiles, and wall appliqués.
Complete the atmosphere with sphere chairs and party buckets.
Now bring on the football food! Show loyalty to your favorite team by wearing a coordinating apron and grill gloves while using customized BBQ tools to showcase your culinary skills.
Even your grill and patio set can show team spirit with grill toppers, grill mats, and patio set covers.
After a hard day of football, toss your game day wear into a team hamper and rest up for next week.
If your Sunday loyalties are with the NFL – and who cannot get enough football! – be sure to check out your team’s officially licensed products available in select stores and online.
Start the week wearing a hard hat and sunglasses.
Go to the game with your team key chain, stadium seats, and coolers.
Decorate your home with table lamps, wall clocks, wall appliqués and fatheads.
Don’t forget to properly position your doormats, team rug and NFL carpet tiles in front of your team chairs and recliner.
Expert chefs will have to use their team grill cover to ensure culinary and scoring success.
And don't forget the gnomes! NFL gnomes are available as statues and banks. Who knows, they may become as popular as starting quarterbacks!
DIY Workshops for Football Team Success
Hands-On Paint Clinic
Every Saturday in August, each Home Depot store has a 10 am Workshop on “Painting an Interior Room.” You will learn how to select tools and supplies to prepare and paint interior ceilings and walls.
You can get Team Spirit By The Gallon and decorate with the official paint colors of your favorite sports teams – Glidden® gets you going! Available exclusively at The Home Depot, you get perfectly matched professional and college Team Colors™ so you can show your true team spirit both inside and outside your home. Copies of the booklet are also available at your local store.
Special College Game Day Kids Workshop
Get the little DIYers into football action by attending the September Kids Workshop on Saturday, September 3rd from 9 am to noon at your local Home Depot store. The children will build a Message Board – perfect for those X-s and O-s (maybe homework too!) and receive a kid-sized orange apron, an achievement pin, and diploma.
Happy football season and I hope my team wins!
THDiva! regrets that she could not put all of the college and NFL teams in this blog. If I missed your team (or if I included your team), please send me a photo of your team loyalty. I look forward to seeing you in action!
Greengiant here, and I was shopping Homedepot.com and found all kind of things for my "man room" from my favorite football team, the Falcons.
Of coarse I would hate for them to get dirty so naturally, I am hanging them on the wall. I did find the perfect thing for wiping my dirty work boots on and I can assure you that it was MONEY WELL SPENT.
Greetings greengiant! I love the team spirit. Don't forget to paint your "man room" in your team colors:
And don't forget the gnome:
Be sure to keep your eyes on him - who knows what he will do with your remote control!
Happy football season y'all!
Here's a team you can bank on:
This gnome won't bother your remote, but he will gladly take your money!
When it comes to Winning we know what time it is!!!
Its always good to support the home teams!!!
As the weather is warmer here in So. Cal, I will have to get one of those customized team aprons for grilling, and a chair for watching my favorite college team. Notre Dame.
You will want to stay cool under your Notre Dame tent while standing on your Notre Dame doormat. Clean up will be a breeze with your Notre Dame trash can.
Of course your outdoor living center would not be complete without a Notre Dame banner.
Regrettably I could find a Notre Dame gnome to complete your oasis. (Did The Leprechaun have something to do with this?)
Best wishes and we will be watching this weekend!
