The NFL playoffs are among us and now is the time to throw the ultimate football party! Everyone loves the excitement of a playoff football game, especially if your favorite team is playing for a chance at the Lombardi Trophy. There are plenty of different ways to make your football party stand out to make sure that all of your guests have an amazing time – regardless of the outcome of the game itself. There are many great game-time food dishes that you can make, and at football themed parties you can even participate in other contests for some added competition among you and your friends. Here are some great ideas and tips to help make your football party as fun and special as possible!
Foods and snacks are one of the main focal points of any party, especially a football themed party. The best types of snacks to serve at football parties are finger foods that everyone can enjoy while relaxing on the couch watching the big game! The host can supply most of the delicious foods, and guests can contribute to the yummy desserts. People will love to snack on things like pizza, chicken wings, pigs in a blanket, along with chips and delicious dips!
The big game isn’t the only competition that can take place at your party. There are many different fun games that you and your guests can take part in to give your party that extra excitement. When your guests arrive, have everyone write down their game predictions (winning team and score) and place all the entries in a bowl. When the game is over look through all of the submissions and the person with the closest guess will win a prize! Another fun game everyone can play is Football Trivia. Divide your party guests into two teams, and whenever a team scores in the actual game give each of your teams a trivia question. The team with the most points at the end of the game wins and can be rewarded with a trivia trophy! Kids also love attending football parties, so it is important to have games that they can participate in as well. Use tape to create a “field goal” on a wall in your house and give each child a football sticker and a blindfold. Then play a football version of “pin the tail on the donkey” and whichever child places their football sticker closest to the center of the “goal posts” will win their very own football award!
Decorations are an important part of any party, and football parties allow you to be very creative with your choice of decorations! Decorate your table of food with a green tablecloth and add white tape to it to replicate your very own football field. Also be sure to get some balloons and streamers in the colors of both teams playing in the big game. If your favorite team is in the game, make sure to decorate using your team’s colors and use as many team-themed decorations as possible! You can even ask your guests to show their team spirit and give an award to whichever guest dresses the most spirited!
