It’s officially fall, which also means that football season is here! Dedicated football fans are now proudly donning their team colors in excitement! Over the next few months as football season carries on, games will be won and lost, and arguments will begin, but in the end it’s a time to come together. Whether you actually like watching the games or just hosting the parties, here are a few tips to enjoying football season within the comforts of home. Who knows, perhaps you’ll have to dig through your storage unit to get some of these cool ideas started!
1). Tailgate in your backyard
Who says tailgating at home can’t be just as fun? Recreate the feel of being at the stadium, but in the comfort on your own home. Set up a big projector screen to watch the game. A perk of watching from home? Comfortable seating! Make sure your cushions are in good condition so your guests can enjoy themselves.
2). Add additional seating – easily
Adding additional seating can be a pain sometimes. You want your guests to be comfortable and finding something other than uncomfortable folding chairs isn’t always plausible. So what is something you can easily move around, but will still provide comfort? Floor pillows are a great alterative! Think beanbags made 100 times better! Floor pillows are perfect for additional seating. They can be moved from inside to out, room to room, wherever they need to be.
3). A game of your own
Make the best of being at home. Everyone isn’t interested in the game? No problem. One fun part of being at home is you don’t have to watch the game if you don’t want to. Set up a game of bocce ball or corn hole. The socializing part of hosting a tailgate can be the best part! Don’t worry about always being the host. Make time to enjoy yourself, too.
4). Have a game day menu
When planning your game day menu, simple is always better. No one is looking for a nice sit-down meal. They want something they can eat with one hand. Also, don’t try to handle it all yourself. Don’t hesitate to ask your guests to bring a side dish.
5). Color coded drinks
If you can, buy drinks that are in your team’s colors. Gatorade, Vitamin Water, and other juice-type drinks come in a lot of different colors.
