Great Ideas for Hosting a World Cup Party

Pretty soon the country is going to be in a football frenzy! If you are planning on hosting a party for one of the matches we have some great ideas. There will be plenty of football goodies available in the shops but nothing goes down better than some unique or handmade decorations and food.

Invite your guests

England World Cup Party Invitations

How about this invitation to inspire some patriotic support and set the tone for a great football party? You can fully personalise the invitation with your party details or select to print the invitation yourself – perfect if party planning has been left to the last minute.

Create the Atmosphere

Bunting always sets the scene for a party. There will be plenty of England bunting available in the shops but we love this idea of creating your own with balloons and footballs, easy to do and it would look fab in the garden for a BBQ party. Use red and white balloons to create a patriotic look.

Alternatively, make your own traditional bunting by cutting triangles out of red and white fabric and attach to a string of jute or ribbon.

Instead of traditional English colours, you could give your party the feel of Brazil. Bring Rio to your guests by using the fantastic bright pink, yellow, blue and green colours promoting the event to decorate your party.

If you are holding the party outside, a gazebo is a good idea to shelter from the sun or rain. Decorate the inside with fairy lights and print some flags from the participating countries or again use bunting and balloons.

Feed the Fans

Obviously if you’re planning a BBQ, burgers and hot dogs are on the menu. Decorate the table to match your theme.

You might just be planning to offer your guests some light snacks to enjoy whilst the match is on. We found this great idea on Pinterest to use dips to make a football pitch.Serve it with a selection of crisps and breadsticks.

We love these country flag themed freezer pops, really easy to make and will go down a treat with any children at the party.
