Do you love football, but hate the hassle of getting to the game and shelling out for expensive tickets and stadium food? With affordable backyard entertainment, you can throw a tailgate party, invite the neighborhood and get that game day experience without leaving home. 

TAKE IT OUTSIDE

Fall is synonymous with football and although we may not always agree on which team to cheer for, everyone can agree that getting together with friends and family is one of the best parts of watching football. Grab a friend, grab a blanket, and enjoy the game on your own “home” field! 

Autumn is a great time of year to entertain at home.  The foliage is beautiful, and the air is crisp and cool encouraging everyone to don their favorite team’s sweatshirt.  So why not take the party outside? Turn on the grill, set up comfy seating areas, and watch the game alfresco on an outdoor screen.

SET THE SCENE

Be creative and choose colors to match your favorite team – flowers, blankets, serving ware and balloons are easy choices.  Even M&M’s candies can be ordered in whatever color you like! 

String up some lights, light candles and start a fire to create a bit of cozy ambiance. 

FOOD AND DRINK

With any party, keeping it simple is the key to success (and ensures you have time to hang out with your friends and watch the game!)  Pop some popcorn, make a big pot of chili, and fire up the grill. Not only will the food be delicious, but your guests will have lots of reasons to get up and mingle.

Set up coolers and drink stations around the yard filled with your favorite adult beverages.  Don’t forget options like apple cider and hot chocolate for designated drivers and young fans!

Gather around a fire and toast s’mores for an easy dessert that kids of all ages will love.

KEEP IT FUN

Set up a game of cornhole, ladder ball, or grab Nerf footballs for commercial breaks, halftime, and bored kids.

While you’re focused on fun, make the game screening easy by choosing a professional with cinema-quality projectors, screens and sound systems.
