10 Incredible Ideas for the Ultimate Green Bay Packers-Themed Rec Room
August 10, 2017
There’s no question which sports franchise has the most-dedicated fans in the world. Here in Northeast Wisconsin, it’s completely normal to walk into someone’s home and find a room decked out in green and gold with memorabilia adorning the walls and home décor celebrating the Green Bay Packers.
Whether it’s the family den, a basement rec room, or your personal man cave, when putting together your home’s shrine to the greatest team in the NFL, you’ll want to make it your own.
If you’re the kind of person who shouts, “Go Pack, go!” just a little louder than the rest of the crowd, you’re going to love these ten ideas.
1. A Green and Gold Throne
There are a lot of options for Packers-themed furniture. However, every armchair quarterback needs one of these comfy recliners.
Wayfair.com offers luxurious Big Daddy recliners that bring a whole new meaning to home field advantage. You could also order the matching couch. And, if you don’t want to spring for new furniture, you could always toss a Packers throw blanket over what you already own. The Packers Pro Shop even offers protective furniture covers. Those are perfect for times when Aaron Rodgers throws a miraculous Hail Mary and you accidentally spill your brewski while jumping around in celebration.
2. Packers Pool Table
Have you always wanted your own pool table? If your rec room has the space for it, why not honor your favorite team with every game of billiards you play?
The pool table shown here is from Triangle Billiards, but there are other versions featuring the Packers’ trademark “G” in the center of the green felt. You can also order team licensed balls, triangle racks, and pool cues.
If billiards aren’t your thing, how about a Packers foosball table? It’s football meets fútbol!
3. Your Own Lombardi Trophy
Most of us will never hold a real Lombardi trophy in our hands. However, this replica from TrophyKits.com will look great on display in your rec room.
It’s the perfect traveling trophy for your fantasy football league.
This version even has small, customizable nameplates and plaques on the stand where you can etch the winners’ names.
4. A Tribute to Lambeau Field
From inexpensive posters and pennants to original artwork, there are many choices for hanging Packers-themed items on your wall. However, no shrine to the Green and Gold would be complete without recognizing the Mecca of the NFL.
A trip to Lambeau Field is on the bucket list of many football fans. Be thankful you live so close to this historic stadium. And, be proud enough to hang an amazing photo of Lambeau in your rec room. Check out the various prints you can order from Fine Art America.
5. Fatheads of Your Favorite Players
Another way to add some character to your Packers-themed room is to stick life-sized figures of standout players on the wall.
Fatheads.com sells removable, peel-and-stick wall decals in different sizes. It’s almost like having Aaron Rodgers, Jordy Nelson, and Clay Matthews right there in the room with you. Packers linebacker, Clay Matthews, happens to be a big fan of Fatheads.
View the video below and let Clay give you a tour of his own Packers man cave.
6. Green Bay Packers Barstools
If you’re adding a bar area to your basement rec room, green and gold barstools are a great place to plant your rear end and cozy up to a cold one.
This selection from American Chairs features a chrome-plated steel tube base and a comfy vinyl cushion for your tush. Just be careful not to fall off the stool when the Packers stage an unbelievable 4th quarter comeback with a 50-yard field goal from Mason Crosby.
7. Legendary Kitchenware for Snacks and Drinks
From glassware to super bowls, there’s an abundance of kitchen items branded with green and gold.
Your basement bar will need some Packers pint glasses, and those snack helmets are always a big hit. But … did you know the classic foam cheesehead can also be used to serve snacks?
8. Unique Antiques from Packers History
The Green Bay Packers have a rich history, and if you look hard enough, you’ll discover some rare treasures from years gone by that give your rec room a retro feel.
The old-school bobblehead shown here can be ordered from Clark Toys. There are also plenty of collectors selling Packers antiques on eBay. Or, visit just about any antique store between Green Bay and Appleton and you’re bound to find something special.
9. Green Bay Packers Neon Sign
Light up the room with a glowing green and gold sign. This is the kind of finishing touch that will make your friends’ jaws drop. While a customized neon sign will cost at least a few hundred bucks, the cool factor makes this addition to your Packers-themed rec room priceless.
10. Lambeau Locker Room Replica
If you’ve paid attention during post-game interviews, you’ve probably noticed how the Packers locker room has a classy look. Why not try to replicate those lockers in your new rec room?
A mock locker room, like the one pictured here from inside the Packers Hall of Fame, is a creative way to showcase the jerseys of your all-time favorite players. And, it won’t smell like dirty socks.
