Chilly winter days are setting in and stoves are firing up, along with the 2014-2015 football season! Hosting a football party with the warmth of the hearth is a great way to get everyone together and cheering during these important final weeks of the regular season. Here are our ideas for tailgating football fun – right in your living room.
Tell everyone to dig out their favorite team jersey and sport it! And dress up your home by strategically placing a couple footballs around the room (real, or the Nerf variety). Do a quick drive-through at a dollar store for red-and-white checkered tablecloths and perhaps some pompoms for effect.
Lineup and Kickoff
Put a big, well-stocked cooler in the middle of the room! No one will accuse you of a false start if it’s full of beverages everyone loves and plenty of ice. You know the drill.
The Halftime Show
With two quarters down and two to go, everyone’s working up an appetite. Keep the menu simple and serve all-American favorites like buffalo wings, sub sandwiches, vegetable trays and chips and dip.
A party without dessert is like getting a touchdown without the field goal. Avoid any disappointment by serving a themed sweet treat, like these cupcakes.
We think there’s no better (or warmer) place to host a tailgate party this time of year than at home, in the glow of your hearth. So pull out your calendar and plan a date!
From all of us at Harman, enjoy football season!
