In The Studio: Score a Touchdown Watch Party with Chalkboard China
August is coming to an end, but we’re excited because this means the calming scents of fall are around the corner, the new school year is starting up and one of our favorite seasons is finally here…football season, that is!
We get pumped for football season because not only can we cheer on our favorite high school, college and/or pro teams, but we can gather with friends and family and enjoy football parties and cheerful get-togethers. And with Chalkboard China, you can score a touchdown at your next football watch party this season with a few of our play-by-plays:
1. Keep the score.
Using two Chalkboard China Rectangle Vases, keep the score during the entire football game. Just have chalk and a damp washcloth ready so you can wipe and write as you watch all of the football action. Fill up each Rectangle Vase with each team’s merchandise and goodies, like flags or pens, for added game day decor. Plus, we have quite a few college and pro colors available in our Colors Collection. Be sure to browse for your team’s colors!
(Tip: This is also an engaging way to keep the younger ones entertained throughout the game!)
2. Concoct a specialty drink for your team.
Depending on which game you’re watching, you can concoct a fun punch or bubbling beverage in a color that matches your team. Have the drink served in a Chalkboard China Carafe (with the drink’s name chalked on like “Longhorn Liquid” or “Sooner Sips”) and use Chalkboard China Red Wine Glasses or Chalkboard China White Wine Glasses to pour the drinks into for guests. Have your guests write on things like their favorite player’s name and number, the school’s logo or team’s name onto the base and your entire watch party will be ready to cheer!
For a few ideas on drink recipes, here are 32 NFL inspired cocktails from Stiletto Sports for your next shindig.
3. Keep the kids entertained.
Chalkboard China Daisy Vases make for beautiful decor as well as fun, creative items for kids. If the little ones get restless during the game, make sure you have a few Daisy Vases on hand and a box full of chalk. Set up a “Chalking Press Box” (to stay with the theme) in a room you don’t mind getting a little messy and let the kiddos’ imaginations run wild. Allow your guests to take home their kid’s finished artwork for a fun and unique party favor that they both will cherish!
4. Label snacks.
Watch parties are never complete until there is a table full of hometown favorite snacks like chips and dip, chicken wings, veggie trays, cookies and more. If you’re having a pot luck type watch party or whipping up some yummy eats and treats you found on Pinterest, use your favorite Chalkboard China Vase to label the names of each snack. Whether it’s Field Goal Fajitas or Touchdown Turkey Roll-Ups, chalk on fun, football related names onto our vases for an easy-to-navigate snack table.
