Gearing up for this year’s Home Bowl? Check out our winning tips, brought to you by Evite in partnership with Coca-Cola® and NABISCO.
Game Day Activities
While the game airs on screen, play a game of your own with our free printable Home Bowl Bingo cards. Just mark off squares (using bottle caps as markers!) as you spy the corresponding thing on the screen, whether it’s a touchdown or a time-out.
Strictly an amateur when it comes to your knowledge of football? Print out our game day survival guide.
Finally, set out photo props and encourage guests to snap pics during commercials — or wave the props around when your team scores. Hang a piece of black-and-white striped kraft paper on a wall for a football-themed photo backdrop.
Game Day Decorations
Add to the football frenzy by creating this DIY football field table cover — just lay artificial turf on top of your food table and add yard lines using white duct tape and felt adhesive numbers.
Set up your spread buffet-style so hungry fans can grab and go as they please. Place snacks on tiered serving platters to mimic bleachers — and make it easier for multiple guests to serve themselves at once. Yellow napkins stand in for penalty flags for at-home referees; just download our free printable label to affix to a napkin holder or simple silver pail. Set utensils to the side in mason jars.
Game Day Food & Drinks
If you’re a guest, come bearing snacks, such as RITZ Crackers, and drinks, such as Coca-Cola®. Make a football OREO Cookie pop arrangement and pair it with custom Share a Coke bottles personalized with the names of your host’s family (available at Shareacoke.com) to score even more points with your host.
As the host, you’ll score points with your guests with a lineup of finger foods. Get all the flavor of Buffalo chicken wings minus the mess by topping TRISCUIT Crackers with this Buffalo Chicken Salad Topper.
For a sweet snack, serve these no-bake OREO Cookie Ball Football Helmets — four ingredients are all it takes (just cream cheese, OREO Cookies, melted baking chocolate and pretzel twists). Customize them with the numbers of your favorite players!
Don’t run dry on drinks: Play defense by keeping your drinks station fully stocked for thirsty fans. Offer glass bottles of Coca-Cola® along with mini cans of Coca-Cola® and Coca-Cola Zero™. Try a trendy football-themed mason jar DIY for guests who want to split a bottle or add ice — just make “laces” using strips of white duct tape. Provide black-and-white striped paper straws and our free printable yard-line drink flags to get fans in the spirit.
