Lets have a sports theme party!


It’s all about March Madness for the Sports Party fan this time of year - but sports parties can be tricky. You have the true “fanatical” fans that can be very seriously into just watching the games. Their eyes will be glued to the set and they may not notice any effort made on your part to be a good host. At the other end of the spectrum are the people who have not watched a single minute of basketball all season until the tournament starts. These people are there for the drinks and the social interaction. The key is to know your audience. Do not invite die-hard fans and expect them to smile indulgently when the kids change the channel from the game to the movie Frozen. You may want to go for balance.

You could plan for a diverse crowd – one group that will be in front of the TV most of the time and another group that will congregate elsewhere. But that will mean more work for you making sure that both groups are supplied with food and drink. The other option is to arrange your invites so you plan on a single focus party – either die-hard fans or a truly social gathering. Once again know your audience and know yourself. You can have a sports party and not really get to watch the game if your party guests are there for the party more than the game. If you are a die-hard fan who takes winning and losing seriously and your favorite team is playing you may not want to host a party for that game. It could end up being a lose-lose. Your focus will be divided, your guest will suffer and you may miss key plays in the game.
