Its Football Season Host a Watch Party

There’s nothing like football season in the south and even when you’re not rooting for your favorite team in the stands, you can create your own game day atmosphere at home. Here’s a game plan to ensure your watch party is a winner:

Draft your guests. Decide who to invite and make your invitation as laid back or flashy as you want your watch party to be. You can send a text, email a digital invite or send an official invitation.

Game Day1

Pick your lucky spot. Be it a media room or living room, make sure you tune into the game where there’s space for everyone to get comfortable and room to cheer. The open floor plans in our new homes in Bridgeland and Woodforest have prime layouts for watch parties.

Game Day2

Create a game day atmosphere. You might not be at the stadium, but you can still create the atmosphere of a home game. Hang team décor and turn your kitchen counter into a tailgate spread worthy of a Southern Living feature.

Game Day3

Cook up tailgating treats. Make sure to have plenty of food and drinks to sip and snack on, especially at halftime! Whip up your specialty game day food and ask your guests to bring their favorite dish to share.

Game Day4

Get Loud! Whether your team wins or loses, have fun and enjoy all of your hard work with your friends and family… there’s always next week!
