Outdoor Football Party: Making Use of Your Outdoor Living Space

outdoor football party

Fall, family, football, food, FUN! For many, nothing says fall like a rousing game of football. There’s just something about getting together with family and friends and cheering (or jeering) for the team(s) of choice. Whether your group be small or be large enough to need to warn the neighbors about parking there’s a special comradery that goes with watching football. But if you want to take the fun to the next level, why not plan your next football party for your outdoor space. After all, an outdoor football party is a great way to truly feel like you are at the game – but with all the conveniences of home!

If you have never hosted an outdoor football party, then why not do it this season? It doesn’t have to be difficult, and with just bit of planning your outdoor football party can be the best party of the year. Let’s get started!

5 Tips for Throwing an Outdoor Football Party

Start preparation early.

Like any good game, the players and the coaches have to do some advance prep. A week or two before your outdoor football party, start collecting items to set the stage. Pillows, team memorabilia, throw blankets -particularly in the colors of the teams playing that day- drink cozies, serving tools, plates, etc. will all be needed. Picking up these items in advance will make game day much easier. Consider buying higher items, if you plan on making this type of event a tradition/weekly occurrence.

Plan your menu.

If your outdoor living space includes a grill or stovetop, then you have a great deal of flexibility on this. Whether it be traditional stadium items like burgers, hot dogs and nachos or tailgating faves like hot wings, BBQ, or even grilled pizza or sliders. And don’t forget the drinks! Consider setting up a space for some microbrews- after all beer and football go great together- and letting guests vote on their faves. Better yet, having your football party outside means you won’t have to clean a mess in the house. Have fun with the menu and don’t be afraid to think outside the box.


Make your outdoor football party even better by pre-gaming. Have plenty of games- cornhole, a giant Jenga, horseshoes, etc.- available so that guests can play before the game or during those long commercial breaks or Challenge timeouts.

Don’t forget extra the seats.

Even if your outdoor space has seating included, having some extra chairs makes it more inviting and keeps people from feeling crowded or from needing to sit on the ground.

Try out the equipment.

Before the guests arrive, take time to make sure all of the equipment – televisions, screen projector, grill, etc.- is working. You don’t want to discover something isn’t working when everyone is wanting to see the kick-off.


Down! Set! Hut! Ok, now you have the play by play for throwing the perfect outdoor football party. So, when are you going to score a touchdown with all your friends and family?

  • “Last June, my wife and I contacted Outdoor Makeover regarding replacing the “weeds” in our front lawn with sod, replacement of all shrubs in the front and back yards and the planting several new trees throughout our property. Once we confirmed the design plan, the Outdoor Makeover crew got started immediately. The job soon took on a life of its own and Navid and his crew were ready and willing to be flexible and get the job done. It is a pleasure to work with a professional that understands the meaning of good communication and customer service. The project came out perfect and we are very happy with our new lawn, shrubs and trees. We look forward to a mutually beneficial, long-term relationship with Outdoor Makeover.”

  • “Navid and his team have exceptional vision and incredible talent for design.
    Outdoor Makeover delivered a plan that is much better than the competitors from design to build. I ended up with an exceptional result that I totally love and enjoy daily. I am very proud to show off my special area in my yard and everyone loves hanging outside now; Navid asked questions to figure out my lifestyle. Furthermore, Navid discovered what I needed and wanted, of which I was unaware when we started the process.”

  • “We contacted a number of landscapers before we found Outdoor Makeover. Navid and Omid worked hard on improving our front and backyard. They worked quickly and diligently and now we have a beautiful lawn and outdoor entertainment area. Their customer service was excellent. They called or emailed us a number of times just to make sure everything was right and we were satisfied. Great Job - Great Customer Service - Great People!”

    Patrice & David Alpharetta, GA

  • “Navid and the Outdoor Makeover team are top notch. They found solutions within our price range and help us accomplish our most important priorities. Further, even after we paid them in full and needed them to come back to touch up some items, they came back within 1 week. This is UNHEARD of these days! I would highly recommend them to everyone!”

    Ryan E. Marietta, GA

  • “While we had a general idea of some things we wanted done, Navid was able to envision a work product beyond that which we could have imagined. In addition to being very accessible, Navid was very customer focused and was intent throughout the project of ensuring that our expectations were met. We were amazed at his team’s ability to execute so quickly from “design” to final product. Expectations were more than exceeded, and we would certainly use Navid and Outdoor Makeover on future projects.”
