Thanks to the latest advances in home entertainment, you don’t have to go out to watch your favorite football matches. You can have a football streaming party in the comfort of your own home. And this experience can be on par with anything happening at your local bar.
Most people think hosting friends is a lot of work, but it is easier than you think. As long as you have a plan like we are going to show you, the rest should be a walk in the park. There are only two things that matter when it comes to hosting a great football streaming party – the game and the snacks.
If you are looking for ideas on achieving this, you have come to the right place. We’ve got some great party-throwers on staff and they’ve come up with some handy tips that will make your football streaming party a super success.
Nothing beats having finger foods to indulge in both before and during the game. A football game is incomplete without lots of snacks, be sure to have enough for all your guests and at least a variety. Here are some ideas to consider.
Simple snacks include chips, nuts and popcorn. You can also have veggies and dip, pizza, jalapeno poppers, nachos and anything else you love snacking on. Place your snacks in an easy to reach location. Consider setting them either on a coffee table or kitchen table.
Set aside napkins, small plates, and some toothpicks to act as utensils and cutlery. This way, it will be easier for your guests to efficiently serve their food and then swing back to catch up with the game.
Prepare Some Beverages
What is a football streaming party without some beverages to indulge in? Have a drink station, and be sure to have a variety for your guests. Have a galvanized bucket, fill it with ice cubes, and place drinks on ice. You can choose beer, soda or whatever else the party-goers might like.
You can even create a signature drink to make it your own special football party drink.
How to Decorate the House
There is a lot you can do to get those football-themed decorations going. To begin with, use some football-themed napkins and plates. You can also buy decorations such as balloons that match your football team. Same with table covers, go for colors that match your team’s color.
Everyone wants to watch the game comfortably and not have to peep over someone else’s shoulder. Bring in extra chairs and arrange them in a way that will allow everyone to watch comfortably. Be sure to have some blankets, throw pillows in case people opt to sit on the floor.
As long as they are comfortable, there shouldn’t be anything to worry about.
Create Your Fun
The truth is, games sometimes get boring, especially if you are on the losing end. To keep your guests engaged, play some friendly sports and games. During half time, play some card or even board games or any other quick game that will prevent people from losing their excitement.
Sometimes we are too hard on ourselves thinking we can’t pull some things off, and yet there are lots of ideas you can always bring on board when hosting your friends for a football streaming party. As long as you have enough drinks and snacks and ample seating, everyone will definitely have a great time.
