Score Big: Renters Guide to Hosting a Big Game Party

Whether you’re a die-hard football fan or just in it for the commercials, hosting a Big Game party is always a fun time. As a renter, if you’re thinking about throwing one at your home, there are a few things you’ll need to keep in mind to make sure your party goes off without a hitch. Here’s your guide to hosting a Big Game party! 

Decorate Your Space 

Get your guests in the spirit of game day with themed decorations. Regardless of the size or style of your home, you can make it feel like a football party with just a few simple items! 

Consider making a touchdown banner or displaying team flags, pom-poms and other football-themed items throughout your home. You can also make it a tailgating-style party with decorations like paper plates, streamers and balloons in your team’s colors. 

Make Sure You Have Enough Seating 

One of the most important things to consider when throwing a successful Big Game party is that everyone has a place to sit. If space is tight, consider using folding chairs and benches that can easily be put away when not in use. If your home is large enough, people can sit on the floor with cozy cushions. 

Stock Up on Snacks and Drinks 

No Big Game party is complete without snacks and drinks! Keep your friends fed with a variety of easy-to-eat appetizers like chips and dip, mini sandwiches and finger foods. You can also provide water, sodas, and other drinks to keep everyone hydrated during the game. To keep things easy, set up all your food and drinks in the kitchen or living area. If you have the the option, grilling out is also a great way to feed your guests and get them in the tailgating mood

Make Cleanup a Breeze 

For an easier cleanup of your home in the morning, try to pick up as you go. Doing this will save you time and effort trying to clean up later on! 

Having multiple places to throw trash away can help with the cleanup. Set up several garbage cans or bags throughout your space so friends can easily toss their trash and recyclables. Take down any decorations or put away chairs you may have used after your friends have all left. You might also take a minute to remove any mess that can’t wait until morning — like food or spills. 

Mind Your Neighbors 

When throwing a party at your home, it’s important to be considerate of your neighbors. Although you may want everyone to have a blast and cheer on their favorite team, try not to be too loud or disruptive. Talk to your them beforehand and give them a heads-up about the party, or maybe invite them.
