Planning to entertain football fans in Lancaster homes can seem overwhelming, but we are here to help! Here are a few tips from Keystone Custom Homes, your Pennsylvania new home builder, for keeping raving football fans happy on game day.
During the week of the party, try to get a realistic number of the guests attending. Then, make a checklist of decorations, drink and food items that are needed to accommodate the number of guests.
Part of entertaining football fans is to bring elements of the overall game day experience to your home. Tailgating is a huge part of football, so planning on a potluck buffet is a great way to bring in this element and enjoy various foods without the pressure of making it all yourself. Simply ask each guest to bring an item for the potluck when you invite them.
Other great food ideas include easy-to-make appetizers and finger foods that can be prepared ahead of time. Making meatballs or glazed cocktail sausages in a slow cooker are very easy to do. If you have more time and are feeling creative, you can cut brownies into football shapes and add lacing details with white icing. Also, provide smaller snack items in areas you want guests to utilize for conversation.
It is your preference whether or not decorations are hung when entertaining fans. Placing footballs, pennants (real or printed out) and other small football paraphernalia around your home are easy ways to spice up the space with sports décor.
Be sure to provide backyard or indoor games during halftime to keep everyone’s competitive spirit going during the TV lull.
