From drinks to decoration, there are various factors to consider if you wish to host a football party that will leave your friends and family raving about what a great host you were, even if their team loses. Read on to know how to host a thanksgiving football watch party.


Invite Your Friends


The first step is to invite your friends to the party. You can invite them informally when you see them or send them a text or message on social media. Alternatively, you can also send them a cute and fun e-vite. Regardless of the method, it is wise to invite people based on how many you can accommodate in your space.


Provide Seating and Technology


You are inviting people over to watch the game, so make sure that you have a comfortable chair available for each guest. Position the chairs so that everyone can easily see the game. You will also want a big television so that your friends can easily see every play and referee call, even if they disagree with them.


Decorate the Space


Decorations add a festive vibe to your party space. If everyone is rooting for the same team, then you can use team-themed decorations. If you plan to watch more than one game or people will be rooting for different teams, choose more generic decorations. Since it’s Thanksgiving, the decorations could also be Thanksgiving-themed. You can make your own decorations or buy them at a dollar store to save money.


Food and Drinks


While inviting them, let your friends know what to expect when it comes to food and drinks at your football watch party. Since it is Thanksgiving Day, you may want to serve a feast. Alternatively, you may want to prepare a little extra when cooking Thanksgiving dinner before the game and use the leftovers to create finger foods that everyone will enjoy. If you are serving alcohol at your party, ensure that everyone has a safe way to get home when the game is done. Position the food and drink so that no one is standing in the way of the television when they are filling their plates.




Consider Other Activities



You may want to make your party more fun by offering other activities. For example, you may wish to create Football Bingo cards and let everyone mark the things that happen during the game, or you may want to let people pick squares based on their prediction of the score at the end of each quarter.
