Take the Tailgate Title this Football Season

It’s the most wonderful time of the year – no, not the holiday season, football season! It is the perfect time to show off your beautiful home and invite friends and family over to cheer on the team. Whether you’re planning an entire block party or just having a small group over, FMHA is here to make sure you score big!

Tailgate party

Make Some Room

Prepare your living area for optimal touchdown viewing. Rearranging your living space for a watch party makes it easier for guests to see the game and helps the flow of traffic. Besides, cramped guests are a recipe for spilled drinks and dropped food – nobody wants that!

Decorate your home with team colors and fun football decor. Include spirit gear like foam fingers or pom-poms. If you really want to take it to the next level, fill water balloons in your team’s colors, and freeze them as a spirited replacement for ice cubes in your cooler.

The way to a person’s heart is through the stomach and also a savvy play for watch party success. The best part about food preparation for the big game is that it doesn’t have to be complicated! Keep it simple with hot dogs and hamburgers on the grill accompanied by popcorn, pretzels, or chips and dip.

While the big game is the center of attention you should have other activities available. There will always be guests more interested in socializing than watching the game. If you have the yard space, corn hole, ladder ball, or horse shoes are a great tailgate addition. If not, you can include card games or football-themed games like tailgate bingo. This guarantees that your guests will have a great time regardless of the final score.
