Grand Rapids, Mich. (WOTV) - Tailgating indoors is a great theme to go with for the big game on Sunday. When you’re deciding on décor , think of ways you can use items in your home. Wool blankets are great for table covers, and you can make your own centerpieces by putting fresh flowers in a thermos. Grab some football or sports magazines and use them as fun accents. Go to a party store and stock up on cheap trinkets like streamers and balloons in teams’ colors, toothpicks with footballs on top or paper cups with NFL logos. Football parties are the perfect opportunity to cheese it up!
Food is a big part of a game day party. Keep you menu basic: keep a pot of chili on the stove and create a chili bar with tons of options for toppings. Taco bars are an easy, fun way to keep your guests happy. The classics are always good to have around like chips and guacamole, jalapeno poppers, and chicken wings. Think casual finger food. Serve everything in plain white dishes and then accessorize your buffet table with items mentioned above.
If you know all of your guests are big football fans, make sure you have lots of seating for everyone. It doesn’t matter if you have to pull random chairs from all over your house. For extra entertainment and a little competitive spirit, create a group fantasy football game. Give away prizes to the winning team. Hosting wives and girlfriends who only watch the big game for the commercials and half time show? Consider planning on or two non-sports related activities like a jewelry party. While the guys are fixated on football, the women can shop together. And don’t forget about the kids! Set up a designated area with puzzles, coloring books and other games, and they’ll be entertained for hours.
