November, the month stuck in the middle of spooky Halloween parties and Christmas festivities.

Hosting the perfect Sunday Night Football party to spice up your month, can be difficult. With a few snacks, drinks, and NFL Football, nobody will be disappointed.

Watch parties aren’t made equal. After all, the theme and setup depend on what the guests like. So if you want to throw the best watch party, you must bring your A-game, here are 5 tips to remember for a successful party.

 

ONE:

Choose the best location

The location of your watch party should be strategic and comfortable for action-packed viewing. For smaller watch parties, the living room would be enough. But if you’re inviting friends and family over, you could bring the fun to the backyard (weather permitting) or even an open-concept garage space.

An outdoor football watch party will give everyone enough space to move around while watching, getting snacks, or playing backyard games between commercials. Not everyone has the space for a large Sunday Night Football party, and that’s okay, the crowd is what makes all the difference.

TWO:

Snacks, snacks, and more snacks!

Is it even a football Sunday without snacks? Aside from action-packed football, the life of the party is the food and appetizers.

Finger foods like fries, chicken nuggets, and chips are the best. Themed football parties often prepare different meals each week. Alternating between different finger foods, main courses, and delicious drinks are sure to impress your guests.

Aside from the food, stocking up the fridge and coolers with various drinks is a game-changer. An assortment of beers, seltzers, sodas, and more will be perfect for your guests. Some may even designate a specialty cocktail based on the theme!

THREE:

Prepare some fun party games

For those who aren’t the biggest fan of Sunday Night Football, having small (but fun) party games is sure to keep everyone entertained.

Simply a deck of cards paired with poker chips or even board games is so easy to set up and for everyone to play! If you’re hosting a backyard party, cornhole, and other backyard games are perfect for halftime or even those commercial breaks.

FOUR:

Decorate!

Have fun with it! You can get the game-day spirit on with sporty decorations, using team colors on streamers, tablecloths, and balloons. If you want to be extra, you can also color-coordinate the cups, plates, and bowl colors.

FIVE:

Enjoy the party!

Setting up for guests can be stressful. As long as you have snacks, drinks, and a TV blasting Sunday Night Football, your guests will be entertained. Don’t stress about the budget, a lot of parties host BYOB or have your guests each bring their own appetizers. Not only does it take some weight off your shoulders, but then everyone gets to enjoy different little dishes!
