Every live game has been precious in the 2020-2021 season… even if the tailgating lots are closed. It’s about friends, great food, and a good time. If you are planning on moving your party to your house, we’ll share some quick tips that will help make your homegate memorable.
Who Said You Can’t Play?
No one said that homegating wasn’t a team sport. Why not build some cornhole boards and organize a TRIBE tournament while you pre-game? See how TV and singing star Hayley Orrantia used her cornhole boards for a party of her own in her song “Strong, Sweet & Southern”!
No Penalties for Extra Planning.
Perk up your party by planning ahead with some football-themed props. How about yellow napkins as penalty flags or a couple finger flipping goal posts for scoring some points with bottle caps during halftime? Are possession errors on drink cups a problem? Create some football-themed stickers so folks can claim their cup with a marker. The ideas are endless!
Team Colors Make It Special.
Whether it’s with food coloring, colored candies, or different color icing for dessert, there are many ways you can play up your party and sport your team’s colors. For example, sprinkle your popcorn with Texas Pete® Dust Dry Seasoning and toss in some appropriate team-colored M&M candies.
It’s the Shape of Things When They Snack!
Think about football shapes and stripes for yard lines or football stitching. Your guests will long remember the thought you put behind your snacks and finger foods with some imagination.
Your Selfie Wall.
Why not memorialize your event by crafting a wall with a branded backdrop for guests to take selfies? Or, create a video conference background image that reflects your party’s theme for online chats before, during and after the party.
