How to Throw the Perfect Game Day Party
That chill you feel in the air means football season is on its way! With it, of course, come game day gatherings. If you’re about to host one, why not make it easy on yourself, and tasty for everyone, by letting St. Angelo’s bring the pizza, wings and other popular game day dishes? That way, you can focus on other game day events and have a great time. Here are a few of our favorites.
Add to the Fun
If you’re a “seasoned pro” at game day events, you already know that there can be a serious amount of down time, thanks to pre-game, half-time and weather delays. For that reason, it’s always great to have a few extra activities around for anyone who’s feeling restless.
Got some Instagram addicts in the crowd? Set up a station with a few helmets, balls and other props so everyone can post their shots on social media, or even create Snapchat stories, during game breaks.
There are also printable bingo cards available online so that guests can fill in their cards during the game when milestones such as “first down” and “victory dance” are reached.
Keep the Kids Entertained
Even the budding football fans among the younger crowd tend to get bored during the many hours a typical game can take. Fortunately, the internet is full of printable, football-themed activity sheets. In addition, you’re sure to find inexpensive crossword, Mad Libs and Sudoku books in local shops.
If you’re going to be serving desserts, get kids involved by decorating slice-and-bake cookies, or pre-frosted cupcakes. And if the weather’s nice, don’t forget how much fun a game of tag football can be!
Get Those Non-Sports Fans Involved!
Maybe not all of your guests may know enough about football to tell the difference between a first down and a touchdown. But that doesn’t mean they can’t muster a “sporting” interest in the proceedings. Print out cards for everyone to fill out. They can start by predicting who the winner will be. To help narrow down the winner, ask them to guess the score as well. You can have a series of prizes for the top three winners. Raise the stakes and organize a money pool that everyone chips in for, if you’re the betting type.
