Get ready to score big with your friends when you host the ultimate Fantasy Football Draft party this football season!
The kids are back in school and summer is officially coming to an end. This means fall is just around the corner, along with a few of my favorite things! Fall means cozy sweaters, pumpkins, and football.
If you’ve been around for a while you know just how passionate we are about football season. During the fall you can find us cheering on our local high school team on Friday nights, rooting for our college alma mater, and tailgating with friends on the weekends. From the perfect game day recipes to the ultimate football tailgate party, we LOVE this time of year!
But, before the actual competition starts on the field the ultimate fantasy team has to be drafted. This fall let’s bring football and beer tasting together to create the ultimate football-themed Fantasy Football Draft party!
Fantasy Football Party Ideas
The draft party is one of the most important aspects of a fantasy football league. It’s essential to creating camaraderie and some healthy competition among the teams. A successful draft party requires a little bit of planning so I’ve teamed up with Oriental Trading to share my favorite products and tips for hosting your own football party. Be sure to visit Fun365 to see all the products and details used to create this Fantasy Football Draft Party.
Add a little bit of extra pizzaz to your draft party with football decorations. I like to hang a few banners, add balloons, and include some fun chalkboard signs.
Oriental Trading can help you get ready for the big game or your draft party with the ultimate Football Tailgate Tableware Kit. Complete with everything from disposable tableware to football-themed can-sleeves, this kit makes it easy to set the stage for your party.
Game Day Snack Ideas
Snacks are essential for any successful football watch party. Create a super simple snack station where guests can enjoy favorite game-day classics like pretzels and loaded BBQ chicken skillet fries.
A fun football-themed game-day Popcorn and Pretzel Bar snack station is guaranteed to get the party poppin’!
Draft Day Drinks
You can’t have a draft party without a beer tasting. This year before we start battling it out to see who will end up on our fantasy teams we are trying samples of draft beer to see which one will be the #1 pick.
Be sure to include a variety of different beer pairings that go with all of your favorite game-day snacks.
Football Draft Board
Part of the fun with an in-person draft is crafting the draft day experience with the ultimate football draft board. Not only does it aid in keeping things running smoothly, but it also helps keep everyone in the loop.
You can create your own draft board that contains the team names your league players have selected, as well as the number of rounds for the draft. Or you can purchase one that is already made from Oriental Trading.
Now that you’ve planned the ultimate party all that’s left is to invite your friends over and let the competition, trash talk, and celebrations begin. This year turn your annual Fantasy Football Draft Party into a celebration that is sure to be the #1 DRAFT pick among friends!
