Now roughly a month away from the biggest game of the year, the Super Bowl, fans are once again fervent to catch some playoff football action. Whether your team is destined for success – or failure – playoff football remains at the heart of countless watch parties and events across the nation. In this blog, we’ll be taking a look at how to elevate your watch party for the intensity that is playoff football. If that sounds interesting, keep reading below!
Tip #1 – First, Ensure You Have Access
This one may seem like common sense, but with the number of entertainment platforms and streaming services out there, it’s smart to ensure that you first have access to the game before you proceed with anything. There would be nothing more unsatisfying than inviting over company, preparing food, and making party arrangements just to find out that you can’t watch the game. The simple way to avoid this is to confirm that your household has access to the game well before you begin the festivities.
Tip #2 – Represent Your Team Well
Though we personally root for the Green Bay Packers, there’s no better way to get in the game than by representing your own team well at your watch party. Wearing a jersey or team apparel is certainly a simple way to do this, but you can really take it to the next level with the likes of decorations, props, and other flares. Here, you can let your creative side flow – for example – you could create signs with colored construction paper that represents your team’s colors. The possibilities are endless as to how you can decorate your space for the big occasion.
Tip #3 – Combine Taste & Convenience
Especially if you’re hosting a large party, chances are you want to spend the least amount of time cleaning up after your guests. With that being said, you might want to gravitate toward simple finger foods that require minimal need for preparation and/or cleanup. After all, you are hosting a football watch party – not a royal feast – and most guests are expecting the likes of comfort food; fried foods, chips, dip, and other gameday staples. Another way to ensure a smooth cleanup is by using disposable plates, silverware, and/or cups, as you can simply throw them away after use.
