Are you ready for some football? Host friends or family with a fun party or potluck this fall using these creative party ideas.
With all the cheering, your guests will need something to drink. Decorate the drink station in team logos and colors. For a fun touch, serve drinks in football-style coolers. If you have a beverage tub, make sure there are several bottle openers close by. Tie the openers to the tub to help keep track of them.
Make it a Tailgate
You might not be lining up outside the stadium, but you can recreate the tailgate atmosphere. Make it a neighborhood affair, with food stations set up in different driveways. Bonus points if you actually have a truck or van to decorate and load up with food. This could easily become a yearly neighborhood tradition.
Best Seat in the House
A great view of the game is the most important element for many fans. For large gatherings, try to set up multiple viewing options. Hooking up a television outside or renting a projection screen is a fun touch. For a more intimate gathering, you can probably get away with rearranging seating in your main viewing area so everyone can see the game on the big screen.
Football Food Labels
Make it easy for your guests to figure out what to eat with football-shaped food labels.
Football Field Party Table
Dress up your snack table with a tablecloth inspired by the yard lines on a football field. Doing this will help protect your table and make for easy cleanup. Choose one that you can roll up and toss in the garbage. Include some fun touches: yellow napkins labeled as “penalty flags,” painted mason jars that look like the playing field or a ref’s jersey, or a pumpkin that’s painted like a football. Make sure you set up the table within view of your 65” LG E7P-Series 4K Ultra HDR Smart OLED TV from Buydig.com so your guests don’t miss a single play.
A life-sized cutout of a favorite football player provides a great photo booth prop. It can also be used to greet your guests at the front door. Create a photo backdrop with a few printouts of your favorite players taped to a solid background on the wall.
Take a Deep Breath
Consider having some stress balls in the shape of footballs for guests to squeeze when the game becomes a nail-biter.
Play Touch Football
Go outside and burn up those party food calories with a game of touch football. This can be a fun halftime or pregame tradition depending on the time of kickoff. It’s especially good to play if you have kids with extra energy!
Play Football Bingo
This is a great activity for all ages, especially guests who aren’t big football fans. While guests watch the game on the LG 65” Class C8 OLED 4K HDR Smart TV w/ Sound Bar Bundle from Buydig.com, they can mark off different things they see on their bingo cards such as truck commercials or a thrown penalty flag. Free downloadable bingo cards are available online.
Mini Football Toss
Play a lawn game similar to corn hole with a flat wooden goal and mini footballs.
Football season is the perfect time to bring friends and family together. With these ideas, you’ll be ready to cheer your favorite team onto that next big win!
