Football games are a tradition in our house. It’s time that we can all spend together rooting on our favorite team! I always think that it’s fun to have themed food and snacks for game day!
With a little bit of game day prep, this SNICKERS® Candy Bouquet can be reused throughout the football season (with fresh SNICKERS® of course). I know it will be making a regular appearance at my house!
Game Day Candy Bouquet
Recycled glass container
Black and white acrylic paint
Hot Glue Gun
Step 1: Place floral foam inside the glass container.
Step 2: Paint the glass container with white acrylic paint. Once dry, paint black stripes on the jar using black acrylic paint.
Step 3: While the jar is drying, make pennant signs. Cut triangles from cardstock and attach letter stickers. You could place your favorite team name on the pennants. I wanted my pennants to stay out more, so I inked the edges of the pennant using a blue ink pad.
Step 4: Attach the SNICKERS® Bars and pendents to bamboo skewers by running a bead of hot glue down the back and sticking the skewers to the bars. I varied the height of the bamboo skewers on the back of the SNICKERS® so that my bouquet will be visually appealing.
Step 5: Arrange the SNICKERS® Bars and pennants in the jar by sticking the bamboo skewers into the floral foam in the jar. I started by placing the tallest in the center, back and working my way forward and to the sides.
By keeping the SNICKERS® Bars in their wrappers, you can enjoy the SNICKERS® at any point during the game and the candy will stay fresh. Also if you do not eat all the candy, you can put them in your cupboard for later.

I made a small version of a football field to display my SNICKERS® Candy Bouquet on. I used a piece of green felt, white cardstock and white foam letter stickers. I cut the cardstock into thin stripes and glued the pieces to the felt using a wet adhesive. Then I placed the white foam letter stickers on the field.
For more football game decorating, I used a small chalkboard to write out a football formation plan (I do not know football formations! I looked up online different ones).
My husband was so excited by the SNICKERS® Candy Bouquet that he kept asking if I was done taking photos, so he could eat a candy bar.
CVS is my one stop shop for game day snacks, drinks and SNICKERS® Bars. CVS currently has a coupon available for SNICKERS® Bars here. I found the fun SNICKERS® football themed packaging at the checkouts, which are perfect for the SNICKERS® Candy Bouquet, however regular or SNICKERS® Crisper would work perfect too.
