The NFL Playoffs are in full swing and The Super Bowl is less than a month away. It’s more fun to watch the big game with friends, so invites to viewing parties or hosting one might be in your future. But the big question is…Is your house ready for it?
-Show spirit for your team by decorating in their colors! Streamers & balloons are a cost effective and easy way to decorate.
-And of course, it never hurts to have a few footballs to toss around!
-Make sure there is enough seating for everyone coming.
-Cover any fabric sofas or chairs with sheets just incase the excitement of the game causes a big spill on your furniture!
-Ask guests to bring any extra folding or camping chairs they have if you don’t have enough seating.
-If you’ve been thinking of an upgrade for your TV now is a great time. Amaze your friends and yourself with the latest 4K Ultra High Definition Smart TV.
-Serve a mix of items from finger foods like wings and chips & dip to heartier foods like BBQ or chili.
-Ask guests to bring a dish of their own. You can never have too much food at a viewing party.
-Make sure you have something to serve all that food on: you can pick up some fun trays, serving platters, bowls, plates & cups from a party supply store.
-Ice! Ice! Baby! Nothing is worse than running out of ice at a party so make sure to grab an extra bag.
-Chances are you will run out of fridge space quickly so make use of that cooler to keep the drinks cool and your guests happy.
-Stock up on an assortment of beverages. Beer is a classic choice for any sporting event. Make sure to have soda or other non-alcoholic drinks for any non-drinkers or kids in the group. BYOB is always a good way to go.
THOSE LITTLE BUT ESSENTIAL THINGS
-Bottle openers. Have a couple around so your guests can find them easily.
-You can never have too many napkins. Quickly clean up spills and make sure your guests don’t use your couch to wipe their fingers off!
