Fabulous ideas to amp up the football fun at home
As you cheer for your favourite team during the FIFA World Cup, starting today, here are some party hacks to host the perfect game night
Football season has gripped the country and there are a lot of bars and restaurants offering deals and discounts to make a match day even better. But if you are planning to watch the matches in the comfort of your home with your friends and family, there are plenty of ways of turning your house, flat or pad into a hot property for match viewing. Here are a few tips to ace the match season and let the good times roll.
A white sheet or a really neat white wall, a laptop or television with HDMI port and a good quality projector are all that you would need to screen live matches. Don’t forget to check the audio to recreate the ambience of a field, and turn your den into an adda for your football-crazy friends.
Decorate the TV room with posters of your favourite footballers. Tell your guests to don jerseys and colours of their favourite teams. String colourful streamers, and hang banners and flags representing participating countries.
From football cupcakes to sandwiches in your favourite team’s colour, there’s so much you can serve at a house party. Serve salads, tacos, nachos and other bar nibbles along with pitchers of home-made margarita. You can also take round cracker biscuits, layer them with thinly sliced sausages, and top them off with slices of cheddar cheese and decorate them with ranch dressing to make them look like a football. You can make an avocado-based dip, serve it in a rectangular bowl to recreate the look of a football field.
Cut out one-inch flags with your favourite teams’ insignia and glue them on to toothpicks. Use them to serve snacks.
You can also do the same with stirrers. For glasses, make prints of flags and jerseys, and stick them along the girth of beer mugs and high ball glasses.
Devise fun party games as the players kick it on the field. For each goal that the opposing team scores, take a shot; two shots for a free hit, and bottom’s up for every penalty. Safe to say, last man standing wins it all!
