The Do’s & Don’ts of Hosting a Great Game Day Party November 14, 2019

Forest Hills, Queens
The Do’s & Don’ts of Hosting a Great Game Day Party, Queens, New York

If you have the honor of hosting the next game day party, there are steps you can take to prepare a fun and successful gathering. From the essential game fare of wings and beer to the television you’re viewing it on, the right conditions can make or break your guests’ viewing experience. Follow the tips below to ensure the ultimate party.

Do:

Triple-check your electronics.

The last thing you want on game day is a nonfunctional television. The morning of the party, make sure the T.V., speakers, and any other electronics you’re using are working. Check the local T.V. listings or your streaming service to find out where the game is playing and set everything up before your guests arrive.

Provide ample seating.

A great host goes out of their way to keep their guests comfortable. If you don’t have enough room on the couch for everyone, bring out extra chairs, bean bags, or even pillows. Place the T.V. at an angle that allows everybody to catch all of the action, no matter where they’re sitting.

Create an atmosphere.

Help your guests get into the team spirit with the proper aesthetic. Put up decorations for the team you’re rooting for, such as banners, tablecloths, and centerpieces. Make an upbeat game day playlist to play before the game begins.

Don’t:

Seclude yourself in the kitchen.

wingsCooking for the party generally means you’ll be stuck in the kitchen warming up food and making seconds. Rather than missing the action, consider ordering takeout. Pick up all of the game-day classics like wings, chips and salsa, onion rings, carrots, celery, and plenty of dips.

Fret over the dishes.

As the dishes pile up, you might start worrying about clean up before the game even ends. Avoid stress by using disposable tableware. You should stock up on plastic cutlery, paper plates, and plastic cups. Parties can get messy, so have plenty of napkins and paper towels on hand.

Micromanage the party.

It’s tempting for hosts to try to pull the reigns and direct the party, but try to ease up and let the festivities take their natural course. The game is the main focus of the evening, so don’t worry about providing additional entertainment. With great food, amazing company, and an exciting game, the party will be a hit.
