Kick Off Football Season with These Winning Homegating Tips
We’ve got your game day covered from the comfort of your home!
Football season is finally upon us. If tailgating is not an option, we’ve got some ideas to help you throw the ultimate “homegating” party. Cheer on your team from the comfort and safety of your home while creating a memorable game day atmosphere.
Take it Outside
Recreate the stadium atmosphere with an outdoor viewing setup. If there is more than one game on, consider setting up two game-day areas (indoor and outdoor) to accommodate every fan. Keeping beverages handy is a must. Why wait for commercials to get up and grab a drink? Consider placing iced down and well stocked coolers in a handy location. For a more formal appearance, the Danby Beverage Center holds up to 115 canned beverages. Your fans will appreciate the convenience.
Bring on the Eats
Food is the foundation of a good tailgate party. Grill up an assortment of meats or consider barbeque with these easy and savory loaded pork potato cups. Have fans participate in making different appetizers and/or desserts and hold a contest for most creative football or favorite team-themed treat. Extra points for replicating your team’s nickname with a more direct dessert tie-in (ie. buckeyes, elephant ears). As host – you get to be the judge!
Football is a game that is enjoyed by families and children of all ages. If kids are part of your group, keep them engaged and part of the fun. Make sure you have a kid-friendly area with plenty of games, snacks and drinks nearby. Have them dress as their favorite player or mascot. Set up a coloring station with several of these fun football coloring sheets for some extra entertainment! Want to get them really involved? Have them plan – or be - the halftime entertainment.
While you can’t control your favorite team’s performance, you can create a memorable homegating experience with loved ones. Stay safe and enjoy the season!
