#1 Food

Of course, the most important part of hosting any party is the food! You can keep things simple with finger foods like sliders, a fruit and veggie tray, or even a charcuterie board with a variety of meats and cheeses. You can also spice things up and try out a taco/nacho bar with a variety of toppings, proteins, and of course salsa, guacamole, and queso. If you’re worried about everyone enjoying the food, you can also do a potluck and have your guests bring one food item. This will also minimize cleaning up and the amount of leftovers that you have.

#2 Decorations

Nothing says party like some fun decorations! Head to your local party store and get some fun banners, tablecloths, and balloons in your favorite team’s colors and Party City even has supplies for every team in the NFL. You can also stock up on gear like temporary tattoos, necklaces, and fun hats so everyone can show their support. While you’re at the party store, you can also grab some paper plates, cups, and silverware that add to the football party atmosphere and will also make cleaning up quick and easy.

#3 Seating

When you invite friends over, it is important to have enough seating for everyone to comfortably watch the big game. If you don’t have enough seating with your couches and chairs, you can get out some folding chairs to ensure that everyone has a comfortable place to sit. Our community also features a lavish community living room area that is ideal for entertaining guests and watching the game.
