With March Madness in full swing we know many people will either throw or be invited to a March Madness-themed party. Did you know that the average Super Bowl host spends around $118 for their party? While you may not want to spend as much, there are still some easy ways to host the ultimate party. Just follow these tips and you’ll be sure to have people complementing your hosting skills.
1. First and foremost be sure your possessions are protected. There’s no telling what the outcome of a game will be and spirited fans can cause chaos. Making sure your most prized belongings are covered can save you a major headache down the line. As we like to say, if it’s important to you, Bubble It.
2. In order to make any sports-themed party a raving success, be sure to incorporate fun trivia and games with silly prizes. Second, be sure that you have sports themed decorations such as plates, napkins, and cups. Fans and party-goers will appreciate the amusement of being able to drink out of a basketball or eat out of a football.
3. Don’t just stop at decorations; make sure your house is also decorated to resemble the field or court. This can be done inside or outside. If you, as the host, don’t cheer for one particular team why not dress like a referee and be the impartial, “rule keeper”? After all, everyone simply wants to have a good time and it also adds a little flair to the overall theme.
4. Lastly, don’t forget to have fun! This time of year is all about some friendly competition and trash-talking. If you’re an eager participator in sports or a mere spectator, remember that having a good time is equally as important as playing or watching the games. And remember, if it’s important to you Bubble It!
