1. Cut coasters out of AstroTurf ($1 per square foot at ondecksports.com, or go to your local hardware store).
2. Set out potted wheatgrass (available at flower shops and nurseries) topped with pennants and mini footballs (check out
michaels.com and partycity.com).
3. Design your table runner to look like a football field; just spread out Con-Tact Chalkboard Contact Paper ($6 for a roll,
18 inches by six feet, at discountschoolsupply.com) and draw yard lines with chalk and a ruler. Then leave out the chalk and let your guests strategize their own plays throughout
