Hosting a TV premiere viewing party
Fall’s lineup of primetime television is almost here. Have you been looking forward to the premiere of your favorite TV program since it ended last spring? If your answer is yes, then host a viewing party with a group of diehard fans to start the season with a bang.
While the seating in your home may be optimized for you and your significant other, on event day you need to plan for a larger group. If you are only having a couple of buddies over, your couch might suffice, but set out extra seating if your bash is a bit bigger. Grab chairs from other rooms and make sure no one’s view is obstructed and people can easily converse during commercial breaks.
Who wants to play hostess when there is tons of drama happening on the TV screen? Set up a bar with a variety of mixers, spirits and ice. Another simple route requires you to pre-mix beverages ahead of time. Keep ice in a cooler so it won’t melt while guests are finishing up their first round.
If you plan your party in advance you can create fun cocktails to match your favorite characters. Then, place your cleverly concocted name on customized stir sticks. You can even help guests remember the event with designed coasters that display the rest of the season’s lineup.
Prepare food ahead of time to free yourself up to watch the big show. Next to your beverages set out sandwiches, bite-sized appetizers and other tasty options. At the end of the evening, thank everyone for attending with a small gift. Design a custom favor box and put in a sweet treat or show-themed trinket.
There are a variety of customizable party favors available to help plan your best viewing party.
