One of the best parts of Fall is the football! At HHHunt Communities, we love seeing our homeowners come together with friends and neighbors to root for their favorite college or professional football teams. If you’re preparing to host everyone for the big game, check out our tips for the ultimate game day party:
Create Invites: Who will attend your fun get together? Create an invite list of your closest friends and neighbors then select a method for sending out the invites. Online invitations such as Paperless Post allow you to personalize the invite to your specifications. If you want to go the simpler and quicker route, consider creating a Facebook event and inviting guests from your friends list.
Take It Easy: Getting ready to host a large group of people can seem overwhelming. To avoid spending a lot of time cooking on game day, consider cooking the night before or using a slow-cooker overnight. For easy clean up, paper cups and plates are a winning combination. You can also decorate your home for the occasion with gameday colors or football themed items from Party City.
Winning Food: Besides watching the game, we all know that the food is the most important part of any game day party. Fan favorites often include pizza, chicken wings, chips, and a variety of delicious dips. Plan ahead what kind of food you will be serving for game day and consider trying out one of many the tasty slow-cooker dips from Brit + Co.Entertaining Little Ones: Are children attending game day? They may not be interested in watching football with the grown ups so consider setting up an activity area just for them. Make them feel like they’re still part of the fun by including football themed coloring pages, printable activity sheets, or sensory activities from Simple Fun for Kids.Plan Activities: Make game day more than a viewing party! If the weather is right, try utilizing the outdoor spaces in your community for a quick game of touch football, corn hole, or other lawn games. You can also play a prepared music playlist during the commercial breaks or half-time. If some of your guests aren’t major football fans, consider setting up an area with card or board games.
We believe it’s how you live that matters and hope you have a winning game day party! If you have your own tips, make sure to share them on our Facebook page.
