It is that time of year again to watch the Big Game. Whether you are routing for one of the teams, just love to watch the commercials, or simply enjoy being with your friends, attending a final playoff game party can be a ton of fun. Have you considered playing host this year? If this sounds like a daunting task, then take a breath. Hosting a party for the Big Game can be epic and easy if you follow these ideas.

Dress in Team Colors

One simple thing you can do to help set up the ambiance for the party is to encourage your friends to dress up in team colors. Donning on the team colors helps it feel like a true party. And who does not love dressing up? Your friends do not have to purchase jerseys or caps, unless they want. Simply wearing a shirt in the team color of their choice will do.

Have Face Paint Handy

While your friends come dressed for the occasion, you can let them know that you will supply the face paint. This can be a way to help incorporate the team color theme as well as help out that one friend who did not get the memo to wear team colors. Another great thing about having the face paint ready is it can be a fun ice breaker to start the evening as people are arriving.

Make a Photo Backdrop

You and your friends are going to want a picture from the night. After all, if there is not a picture, then did it even happen. Make your photo or photos really pop by creating a photo backdrop for the evening. There are many ways you can create a backdrop. Incorporate the team colors again, have a balloon arch, use a blow up of a football field, etc.

Fun Activities

While the main action will be watching the game and half time show, there are a few other activities you can do to keep your guests entertained. You can have a football cornhole game or ladder toss. Have your friends make predictions on who will win the game, how many interceptions there will be, what the score will be, and so on. Another fun idea is to create commercial bingo. You know there are standard commercials you will see each year. Who guessed Pepsi or a Toyota commercial?
