6 Big Game Football Party Ideas:
Set the stage for excitement with football-themed banners, balloons, napkins, placemats, cups, and blankets. Get super creative with a football field tablecloth, including goalposts and color coordinate with your favorite team’s colors.
|Tailgating At Home
Start the day with an outdoor celebration and let your neighbors know how loud and proud you are by extending your decorations from indoors to your driveway, backyard, or patio with signs, flags, chalk displays, coolers, and a barbecue grill. Add to the background ambiance with some lively tunes to get everyone in the groove.
Even if you aren’t going to the actual game, you can still show off your dedication to your team by going all out and painting your face to match your team’s branding or mascot. Everyone will know you mean serious business.
The players aren’t the only ones that get to wear all of the gear. Dress from head to toe with helmet, wig or hat, t-shirt or jersey, logoed pants, and socks, and really display your absolute fandom for the game.
For many of us, the party snacks are just as important as the game itself. Enjoy traditional crowd-pleasing foods like pizza, wings, and sliders, and serve a sweet treat such as football-shaped brownies or cookies for your guests to enjoy.
Fill in the real-time breaks and timeouts during each quarter and have your own games ready to play, for example, bingo with commercials. Write the companies you think you’ll see on a blank bingo card and mark them off as you see them. Be the first to get 5 in a row and win the grand prize football award. It might not resemble the actual trophy given to the final winners at the big game, but you’ll have a fun keepsake from the day plus the ever-important bragging rights. Here’s to hoping you’re on the winning team.
