4 Tips for Hosting a Winning Game-Day Party


Wondering how to host the ultimate football party? We’ve got the essential tips you need. These winning football party tips will keep your guests happy from kickoff to final touchdown. Ready, set, host!

Serve Finger Foods

A football party just isn’t a football party without a spread of winning game-day recipes. Remember, you aren’t hosting a formal sit-down dinner, so stick to finger foods. Chips, dips, hot wings, sliders…these fan favorites are classic football party pairings for a reason. While everyone’s attention is focused on the big screen, it’s a good idea to have bite-size, hand-held appetizers that are easy to snack on. Bonus points if you serve up some football shaped snacks, too!

Comfortable Seating

Ample, comfortable seating is crucial for a football party. Whichever way you arrange your furniture, make sure you not only have plenty of room, but that everyone has a comfortable view of the action on TV. If you’ve got more guests than seats, set out floor cushions or pillows for a great lounge arrangement, and if they happen to match your team colors, even better!

All in the Details

A little decorative detail goes a long way. Score points with football themed plates, napkins, cups, balloons, and serving trays to go along with your theme. If you want to get really creative, transform your food table into a football field by placing a plastic or cloth green table cloth on it to resemble turf. You can even create field markers using a white marker and number stickers!
