Well, ladies, whether you’re into football or not, the ‘big game’ is coming up and I guarantee people are going to want to celebrate! So if you’re finding the football party at your house this year, I have a few tips for you to make it easy, fun, & memorable! It really doesn’t have to be as intimidating or daunting of a task as you think. Actually, it can be easy & fun. Let’s do this.
I know you all know World Market for their beautiful furniture & home decor. But today I want to show you something more. This little football party you have to throw? Well, World Market can make it easy, yummy, and fun. Just wait & see!
Don’t go Crazy!
Yes, of course, you could go all out with colors and football paraphernalia and it’d probably be great. But that is a whole lot of effort for people who are probably not going to notice it so much. They’ve come to see the game, have some yummy snacks & enjoy good company. The plates & serving ware in the following picture are nice and pretty and can be used again for multiple occasions! It’s definitely the smartest choice.
Serve Yummy Food.
People are gonna want to watch and eat. But most likely people are going to want to sit and watch and eat, meaning they won’t want to get up and walk through a buffet line. I think the best option here is to have a nice spread of snacks laid out on a coffee table or something that is within reach but not in the way. It’s also a good idea to have some sweet snacks and some savory snacks.
I love to cook. I really do. I don’t know if there’s anything better than wowing someone with your spectacular culinary skills. But sometimes on days like this, it’s easier to buy items that are already put together. It’s better to enjoy the people, party, and game and not stress and be stuck in the kitchen. World Market has some amazing items that appear to be homemade but really all you have to do is make them look pretty!
The bruschetta, chips & salsa, and cookies were all purchased at World Market. They’re so yummy and fancy it makes it look like I was tucked away in the kitchen all day.
You can see the little chalkboard label sticks that were also purchased at World Market. Aren’t they adorable? So much better than a football sign you’ll have to throw away the Monday after.
Refreshments (i.e. beer)
I don’t think a football game is a football game without some fun drinks. The selection below is a fun blend of beers from around the world. If beer is not your thing (although it’s bound to be someone’s ‘thing’) the beautiful drink dispenser is a good idea too. People can refill as they like!
Serve a heartier item.
Snacks are great and you should definitely have enough to go around, but it is also a good idea to have something a little more filling available. Pizza is always a winner & at World Market you can get 3 ready made pizza dough in one package for $4.99 and slap on some toppings and voila! You have a meal!
There you have it! I think these are all the tips you need to have a fun & successful football party!! As you can see, World Market definitely has it all! And guess what? They are giving you a chance to be able to host the ultimate football party! Check out the deets:
