Britain has football and lacrosse, while America
You can use your sport fanaticism as an idea for your upcoming party. Why not throw an AFL-themed party at the start of the season? Invite your friends and also their families for barbecue, drinks, and a night of Aussie rules football. Wearing AFL jerseys isn't the sole method to back up your team.
Hang up AFL merchandise instead of streamers. You could use regular party streamers in your own football team's colour if you want to save money on decor. Team scarves and flags make the perfect replacement in case you are willing to spend a little more. Hang these up around your room and give it a game night feel.
Serve AFL-themed food. It could be as simple as embellishing cookies with miniature footballs and also other Aussie rules football-related images, or as elaborate as baking a cake that looks like your local AFL football stadium. Embellish your meals using condiments with some food colouring to suit your team colours. Try and get your colours right - you may find yourself displaying support for the wrong team. If you'd like to go all-out, forget the cakes, cookies, and dishes and go for traditional football stake-out food. Prepare sausages, chips, meat pies, steak, soda, beer, and everything you will see in a football game. You might want to bring your television set outdoors if you want to grill while the game is on.
You don't need to order custom balloons with your own team's logo on it. Just buy balloons in your own team's colour from your party goods shop. Tie these together and spread throughout the area. Certain teams have a basic logo, such as the Gold Coast Suns, the Greater Western Sydney Giants and the West Coast Eagles. You can draw these logos on the balloons for that far more personalised look.
Use AFL merchandise as the table's centrepiece. Work with an AFL beach towel, quilt, or jersey as meal table cover. You may get your team's cooler bag and fill it up with cans of beverage. You'll be able to give these away as party favours later on with the bar scarves and team flags you used as streamers. Other party favours you may hand out are key rings, pens, button pins, door chimes, bottle openers, and dimple stein glasses. Make sure you have sufficient AFL jerseys handy if you intend to give them away.
You may want to hire additional services if you possibly can spare some more. Try face painting should your friends bring their kids along on game night. Work with a professional face painter or purchase your own face painting set and paint your favourite team's logo on your own face, arms, and body.
Hosting an AFL-themed party is an excellent way to show support for your favourite team. Adding AFL items to your party offers you a strong feeling of team spirit. Improvise on a few items and keep the authentic merchandise handy when the season begins.
