As you prepare for your next football viewing party, here are some helpful tips for throwing a fun and festive event. Get pumped to start wearing jerseys and eating chips and dip!
- Check Your Local Television Listing: There are times when the team you’re rooting for isn’t airing on your local television station. It’s wise to check ahead of time on TV Guide where your game is being aired in case you need to hook up your computer or make other accommodations.
- Create a Football Atmosphere: Set the scene with football-themed décor. Get creative by stringing mini pennants along your wall, and placing mini helmets, footballs, and team logos around your home. Party City has great tips for buying football-themed accessories.
- Football Food: The food is one of the most important parts of a football party. Plan ahead what kind of food you will be serving for game day. Food prepared on the grill is always a fan favorite, along with traditional snack foods like nachos. If you want to spice up the traditional nacho snack, here are more ways to create delicious nachos from AllRecipes.com. It’s also fun to have a potluck where your neighbors and friends bring their own dishes as well!
- Use Plastic Plates and Cups: For easy clean-up, consider using plastic plates and cups that can be cleaned up quickly. If you want to get very football festive, you can buy football-themed plastic ware at a number of stores, including your local grocery story or Oriental Trading.
