Every big game provides the perfect opportunity to celebrate with your friends and family, overindulge in snacks, and show off your cheering skills. With the big game just around the corner, we’ve put together some tips for taking your celebration to a whole new level.
Before the party, make sure you have the proper attire to cheer your team on. To truly make a statement, wear your team’s jersey, face paint, and a hat. Ladies, get in the spirit with your team’s colors manicured on your nails. For a more unbiased approach, throw a flag in the air and put on a referee shirt to keep the peace.
Turn your home into a stadium with themed decorations to get in the spirit. You’ll feel like you’re on the field with football shaped plates and snack bowls. Balloons will also help fill empty corners and add more team spirit to your home. When it gets dark, light up your yard with football-shaped paper lanterns to keep the party going even after the game has ended. Another great idea is to set up a photobooth so your guests can remember your party long after the game has ended. All you need is a blank wall and some silly props like these.
When your guests arrive, kick off the party by having everyone pitch in $5 to participate in the Squares game. This is a fun way for the guests to stay engaged in the game, since they will have a chance to win too.
If there are children attending your party, make sure there are enough activities to entertain them while you watch the game. Use an inflatable goal post cooler to set up a game of touch football in the yard.
Food and Drink
Since any sports is typically about four hours long, your guests will surely be hungry for some game time munchies. Load up on chips and various types of dips, wings, and sliders. For a healthier alternative, assemble a veggie platter and try this slow cooker turkey chili.
Don’t forget to stock up your bar with both domestic and craft beers. Themed cocktails will spice up your drink selection for those who don’t like beer. Last, but not least, you’ll definitely want to open a bottle Champagne after your team scores the winning touchdown.
