Weekends from now until February have been cleared for one thing: football. Even if you don’t have season tickets to cheer on your favorite team this season, you can still display lots of team spirit in the comfort of your own apartment.
Even if you aren’t a football fanatic, you can still host an awesome pigskin shindig. All you really need to kick things off is a lot of team spirit and a few fine finger foods.
Your favorite team’s colors MUST be displayed throughout your apartment. If you live in or near a college town, the right stuff won’t be hard to find at stores like Party City, Dollar Tree and other budget-friendly discount chains. Tablecloths, balloons, streamers, plastic cutlery, cups and tons of other items can be obtained in your team’s colors. If your friends are rooting for the opposing team, don’t be a poor sport. Let them bring their own team paraphernalia to make game day fun for them as well. Teamwork makes the dream work!
Game Day Grub:
There’s a million different ways to go here. The most important thing to keep in mind is that easy finger foods and appetizers are your friends. Need a few creative ideas? We’ve got you covered. We’ve been pinning lots of delicious recipes on our “Let’s Eat” Pinterest board. If you’re looking to claim a kitchen victory, the Spicy Baked Buffalo Wings, Macho Nachos, and Buffalo Chicken Potato Skins all look like winners to us! Don’t forget to incorporate your favorite team in the kitchen as well. For example, if you like the Kansas City Chiefs, a barbecue dish would be a must since that’s what the city is known for.
It’s time to go hard or go home. Are you planning a football fete this season? Tell us all about it on Facebook!
