We love the big football game! From the planning to the party fun, we enjoy it all! Thank you to P&G for sponsoring this post.
We are so excited for the big game!
Football watching is a family event around here… especially for the big game, because those commercials and halftime show can’t be missed! Our party traditions are pretty easy when it comes to planning and such. One thing we always do is that we prepare for the big day with some great P&G products.
One of our first traditions is to head to Walmart for supplies. We purchase a few P&G products that help to make pregame, game time, and post-game all awesome, including Charmin Toilet Paper, Tide Pods Laundry Detergent, and Bounty Paper Towels.
We always have some healthy snacks to enjoy during the game. And I bring out our football decorations. I keep the decorations neutral so that we can use them each year and Emmy has taken over official decorating duties. She has her own ideas about where everything should go.
As far as clothing is concerned, we wear the colors of our favorite team that is playing. That’s how we personalize it. I remember the year we all wore the Philadelphia team colors and jerseys since that is Pete’s favorite team. I also remember the time when Emmy dropped a whole slice of pizza on her shirt. Thankfully we had Tide to wash it and the jersey was good to go for the next season.
Another tradition is our sparkling apple cider (or as we call it, party juice) celebration whenever our favorite team scores a touchdown! We keep a couple of bottles chilling in the fridge and then Maddie runs over and pours some whenever it’s time to celebrate! Spills are inevitable so we always keep Bounty on hand to clean up the mess.
What I love the most about our family football party traditions for the big game is that we spend time together having fun.
The big game only happens once a year and knowing that I make that day special for those that I love is all that matters. I love that Pete’s enjoyment of football has spurred a bonding time with him and the girls. They all take great care in deciding what team we will be rooting for (if the all-time favorite isn’t playing of course), and the fun of the day makes us all remember how lucky we are to have each other. Want more game day tradition ideas? Head on over to Walmart for more inspiration.
We are a big football family, so we are big on snacking…and messes happen, too 🙂
Football parties are necessities but so is keeping things clean! Thats why we like to throw them outside.
We aren’t a football fan family, so we don’t have those traditions. I would love to attend a party one year though!
We love watching football in our house. Snacks are great for watching football too! I can’t wait for the Superbowl so we can entertain!
That’s really nice, it’s always better to watch the game with family! It’s nice to see them all together and having fun!
We aren’t a football watching family, but those are some great traditions.
I love SuperBowl Sunday! I can’t wait for the game (and commercials). We always have lots of food and drinks and just relax at home.
I like your traditions. Team jerseys are a must! It’s fun to prepare special snacks for the big games too.
I’m not into football, but as my TV is the biggest, my cousins like to come over and watch the games at my house, so long as they clean up after I’m fine with it! 🙂
I love football parties! They’re a chance to eat fun food and have fun with family and friends!
This is a fun Traditions My hubby and the two boys was a fan of football games they love the Superbowl Sunday.
My hubby is looking forward to the Superbowl, so I am in the process of planning a fun day with the family. Thanks for these ideas and I will make sure I have Bounty to help with the cleaning up tasks.
These sound like great family football game party traditions. My family doesn’t really watch the football games to much so we have none but my sister does. Her and her boyfriend usually make a big dinner with hamburgers chips etc and drinks for every game the Packers play. Everyone who attends wheres the Packer jerseys.
We are not a major football fan but we like to watch once in a while. This looks like a great snack for family!
We are not too big on football – hockey is our thing! But we ARE big on Bounty! I always make sure I have extra so I don’t run out!
I always try to have a super bowl party and there are always spills. I’m going to make sure I’m stocked up on cleaning products like these paper towels before party day comes around. I love your traditions, we have ours as well.
I have never tried those Tide Pods but they do look awesome!! Looks like you have some great game day traditions!
We sit down together as a family and watch The Game once in awhile and I try to make it kind of fun with finger food snacks…and of course paper towels. lol We’ll be having a small get-together for the Superbowl!
We always have a SMALL get together for the game. I hate the clean-up so I ask my husband to keep the invites pretty low key. But it always turns out super fun with friends food and drinks!
We love watching football games at home. Like you, we have some great family traditions that we hope to carry on for our kids.
Tide the laundry detergent that my parents always used and still do.
I discovered that it was too strong for me and that I was actually allergic to it, so I switched to a natural brand that I get at Costco now.
There should be snacks. Watching a very thrilling and exciting game is not complete without snacks. 🙂 Looking forward to our next game!
Always good to be prepared! I love that you pair healthy snacks like oranges and a vegi platter along with the not-so healthy snacks. When people do this I always eat more vegetables than I do no-so healthy snacks.
We don’t watch sports a lot around here but I’ll take advantage of any opportunity to spend time with family. Looks like your family had a great time!
I love family traditions like these, it’s a fun way to bond.
Family Tradition sounds fun and making a great family bonding at the same time.
That’s great, it’s always better to watch the game with family! It’s always fun to see us all together and having fun as a family!
Great game party traditions! It’s always nice spending time with family watching the game.
My husband is big on cricket and his friends throw a huge party for a big match. It is always so exciting.
