This month marks the 56th Annual Super Bowl and whether you’re a football-loving family or not, Super Bowl Sunday is definitely a day to mark on your calendar.

Beddy’s?!? That’s right! And we’re here to tell you just why that is.

From decorating your house in the team colors, to turning your kitchen table or island into a football field, whatever it is you choose to do, don’t forget to kick off the party with tailgate-style food and snacks. Whether you’re watching the game at home by yourself, or with your family and friends, bring life to your next party with one of our new favorite recipes. This Baked Buffalo Chicken Dip by The Dan Patrick Show is guaranteed to be loved by all.

More Than Just Gear
Wondering what to wear for the big game-day gathering? Keep it classic by pairing your jersey with your favorite pair of jeans, or choose to go casual by sporting your team’s colors with a simple ballcap or beanie. You might however, want to go for cozy in your most comfortable sweat set, especially if you plan to eat even half as much as we do. 😉
Showing love to your favorite team, or even your favorite sport, doesn’t have to end when the clock winds down for the final time of the season. Have you ever considered incorporating your love-of-the-game into your everyday home décor?
The Beddy’s All-Stars
There are few spaces in the house as personal as your bedroom. Bedroom décor is often where kids, and even adults, want their personality and hobbies displayed so it makes sense that it may incorporate your passion for your favorite past time. While it doesn’t have to be expensive or elaborate, you will want to be sure to include at least one thing in your next bedroom design…. Beddy’s, of course!
Looking for a little inspiration? We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite sports-themed rooms sure to reach all-star status.
And here at Beddy’s, we went for GOAL when we combined our GOALLL Soccer Pillow and Eat. Sleep. Play. Digital Artwork, then paired it with our Tweedstorm Beddy’s. While this neutral-in-color and heavy-in-texture Beddy’s appears to be made-for-this space, it actually works great in so many other rooms as well. Just look at when @jenbryantdesign used this same style to create a show-stunner where she paid homage to her son’s TWO favorite sports, football and baseball.
The Benefits of Beddy’s
Not only do these rooms look amazing with their Beddy’s, but these mamas know first-hand how having a Beddy’s can also improve their little athletes’ lives. In order for them to perform their best, athletes must take care of their bodies. That includes regular exercise, healthy eating and making time for rest and sleep. And what better place to do the latter than in the coziest of accommodations?
Whether you’re an athlete or not, sleep is essential for your overall health and wellbeing and Beddy’s is essential for your sleep. The ability to zip yourself/your child in at night, helps you to feel safe and secure. Beddy’s also keeps your covers on, so no more waking up cold. And let’s not forget the time it saves you in the morning! With two simple zips, your bed is made and you’re ready to hit the practice field.
Instead of the typical boring design, help your bedrooms pop with a fun sports theme. Whether it’s football, basketball, baseball or soccer, be sure to include Beddy’s and you’ll be sure to WIN!
