Planning the best party for the Big Game

by .   filed under: , ,

The Big Game is just around the corner, which means it’s time to start getting ready for your big party. From food to decorations to activities, here are some ideas and tips to make your party planning and execution successful. No matter which team claims the championship title, your game day gathering will be a winner.


Get festive with some football-themed decorations. Even if you aren’t particularly crafty, there are some easy ways to add a splash of game time spirit to any room. Go to your local hardware store and pick up some AstroTurf, which is inexpensive– especially since you won’t need very much. You can cut out coasters from the AstroTurf or use a sheet of it as a table runner.

Make a football paper chain to hang on the wall. Never made a paper chain before? Get easy directions here.

Football silverware holders are easy to make by wrapping cans in brown paper and then painting white lines on them.


In addition to the classic Big Game eats, like chili, sliders and other halftime finger foods, you can go the extra yard and make some football-shaped snacks. How can you pass on these calzones, meatloaf, or mini spinach pizzas?

Yum! Calzone touchdown.

Meatloaf is always a winner.

Healthy and delicious.

Party Games

Sure, your guests will be there to watch the Big Game, but you can also plan some smaller games for extra fun. Have your guests enter a pool to predict the final score. Whoever makes the closest guess walks home from the party with some extra cash in their pocket! You can also make up a Big Game Bingo board, with boxes for incidents like touchdown, player injury, or beer commercial. Have some small prizes ready to hand out to your guests.
