Football Donut Holes 

Don’t forget dessert! These little football shaped donuts are the perfect treat after savory snacking. It’s easy to make large quantities of these so no one is left out.   

Seating  friends watching football

This may sound obvious, but make sure that everyone has a place to sit around the TV for the big game, as well as other parts of the home for guests that would rather mingle by the appetizers. Floor cushions are a great option for teenagers and kids to spread out on the floor while adults can fill the more formal seating options. Keep a realistic seating number for your house in mind when sending out invitations so you don’t overcrowd your space.  


Regardless of what team you are rooting for, make sure to let your guests know it’s a watch party from the moment they walk inYou can do this by color coordinating with your favorite teamIf you are just interested in the halftime show and commercials you can decorate with the halftime performer or general football decorations.  

No matter which team you are rooting for, we hope you have a great time with your family and friends during this annual event. We hope these entertaining ideas have inspired you to throw your best football watching party yet
