Tailgating at Home: What You Need for Hosting the Big Game Party

October 26, 2021

For some people, autumn is synonymous with falling leaves, cozy sweaters, and all things pumpkin spice. Yet for other people, the fall is all about football!

While you may not always be able to get to the game, you can have some fun with family and friends by tailgating at home before you watch. Planning and hosting the ultimate tailgate aren’t that difficult, especially with party décor rentals from In the Event.

Here are some tailgating tips to help you throw the best shindig without any unnecessary penalties!

Create Atmosphere

If you’re going to go all out and plan the best tailgate party ever, then you have to start with an awesome décor plan.

You may want to rent a tent and some audio equipment for the pre-game and game viewing, but also don’t forget the basics such as tables, chairs, and even couches or loveseats. In the Event also has LED bars for rent as well as bar tables to spread around, to ensure that everyone has a place to munch and chat before, during, and after the game. We’ve even got game rentals – including cornhole and horseshoes! – so that you can stay entertained as you wait for the game to begin – and get those competitive juices flowing in the process!

Of course, the television is the star of the show. We have audio and video rentals available to bring the game to life – almost as if you’re really there.

Go Big with Decorations

You don’t want anyone to miss the fact that they’re at a tailgating party for football, do you?

This is a chance to showcase your love of the game with little details that don’t have to cost a lot of money. If you have team-themed décor to use, then put it out. Consider making fun little items such as a bucket that holds yellow penalty flag napkins. It’s the little things that will go a long way!

In the Event has photo props you can rent to ensure that everyone walks away with some great selfies, too.

Grill It!

No tailgating experience would be complete with a grill. If you don’t have one, then consider ordering out from a restaurant that specializes in grilled meats and other items. The food you make yourself you should work to prep before the big day, so you don’t have to do so much on the day of the party.

Remember to keep food safe, too, by keeping it at the correct temperature. If possible, single-serve containers may be the way to go to help avoid the spreading of germs by guests – or making sure to sanitize serving utensils between uses.

Football is a fun sport to watch and it’s even more fun to experience with your friends and family. If you want to make this football season one that you’ll never forget, work with In the Event for party décor and event rentals in Utah to help create the best tailgate party ever.
