- DIY tags for game day drinks. Use your computer to create print outs or buy football decals at a craft store that you can tie to a beer bottle or can. While the idea may seem silly at first, if you’re hosting a large party, labels make it much easier to keep track of drinks. Tags don’t have to be shaped like footballs— you can create tags with team logos and assign guests a number that matches their favorite player.
- Use football field tablecloths or runners. Decorative runners are more festive and appropriate for game day than a standard plain tablecloth. Also, consider purchasing napkins in team colors rather than using plain paper ones.
- Avoid red plastic cups and plastic bowls. While game day apparel tends to be casual, you can still make your tableware a little more impressive. Store beer bottles and silverware in metal buckets and keep condiments in antique-style silver bowls instead of leaving them in the jar.
So, even if your favorite team doesn’t win, at least you’ll have the best Chicago home decor in town.
