Use grass, real or faux as a table cover for your Grey Cup party. Use bleachers as a tiered stand for snacks, and place playing men across the ‘playing field’ for fun décor.
Incorporating team colours is vital to a football party, use balloons to bring the colours into the décor. Don’t forget to include flowers for a feminine touch, they can double as pom-poms!
Popcorn in Mason Jars/ Have snacks ready to go and display on the table bleachers for guests to grab as they wish.
Popcorn and pretzels are ideal for football watching. Place popcorn in dressed up mason jars and pretzels in take away paper bags, they are as much décor as snack!
Football Cake Pops Football & Chocolate Strawberries. Have a little fun with your party by incorporating some football specific items like these football cake pops and football chocolate covered strawberries.
Prepare foods specific to the teams playing in the game.
Allow Guests to Graze Throughout the Game. Setting up grazing stations allows guests to eat throughout the game and gives you a chance to enjoy watching some of it. Prepare snacks that guest can grab and go, keep a slower cooker with chili going and have punch and beer ready. No one will go hungry.
