You’re a party-planning pro, but even the pros need fresh ideas. We have created a Pinterest board for all your big game needs. That way you can have more time to do things like hanging out with your neighbors.
Football food is easy, and serving your snacks in something simple like a paper bag can change your color pallette and provide a natural element to an otherwise colorful party while also saving you money.
We know you’ve probably got a huge stash of chalkboards in your event closet - break them out for decorations, food labels, and photo booth props. If you’re not a great artist, there’s good news… those Xs and Os are easy enough for a kid to draw.
Butcher paper is another great way to add a football theme to your decor. Draw out your most strategic plays (or just make something up), along with labels for your food. It’s also a great place to add a reminder to your guests to hashtag all photos posted online.
Create an Instagram-worthy photo backdrop for your guests. If you search “photo booth backdrop” on Amazon, you’ll see hundreds of affordable options (we especially like this one). Be sure to encourage your guests to tag your property and use their designated hashtag, so that your awesome event can serve double-duty as a marketing tool. Your property manager will love you for it. And, don’t forget the photo props! They sell those on Amazon too.
And for your guests who aren’t exactly football fans, there’s always the commercials. We found printable bingo cards, and you can partner with local vendors to get prize donations.
Speaking of partnering with local vendors, don’t forget to ask for help! There are many local businesses looking to market to your residents, so invite them to provide catering, prizes, or another special aspect of your event (let them bring in a professional photo booth or bounce house).
We’ve got more ideas over on our Super Bowl Pinterest board. Happy hosting!
