If you’re a fan of the Denver Broncos or Seattle Seahawks than your decorations can be pretty simple. You can stick to team colors and team-specific signs. On the other hand, if you’re more of a general fan without a stake on either side you might need to get creative with the football theme. Here are a few ideas for setting the mood.
