Tips for Planning an At-Home NASCAR Party
Are you a NASCAR fan? If you are, you may love attending NASCAR races. Unfortunately, many NASCAR fans are unable to do so. Depending on where the race is that weekend, it can be impossible for even the most diehard fans to attend a race. With that said, even if you are unable to attend a NASCAR race, you can still have a fun time watching the race at home. In fact, you may even want to consider throwing a NASCAR party.
When it comes to planning a NASCAR party, many hosts wonder how they can get started. One of the first things that you will want to do, when looking to plan a party for race day, involves creating a guest list. You don’t have to send out formal invitations, but try and get an accurate number of those who plan to attend. This is a great way to properly plan and prepare for your NASCAR party.
As soon as you decide that you want to have a NASCAR party in your home, especially one that will be large in size, you will want to start being on lookout for great deals. If you are not careful, a party can be expensive to plan. That is why you will want to try and buy snacks and drinks when they are on sale. When doing so, you should be able to store all items in a closet or in another room of your home until the date of your NASCAR party arrives.
A day or two before your NASCAR party, you will want to recheck your supplies. Do you have enough food on hand? What about paper plates, cups, and eating utensils? If not, this is your last chance ensure that you have all needed supplies. You may also want to start contacting those that you may have yet to hear from. Simply remind them about your race day party and see if they are interested in attending.
It is also important to start cleaning your home. Unfortunately, this is an important task that often falls to the back of the mind. When inviting guests over, it is important that you have a clean home. Of course, you will want to clean your home as much as possible, but be sure to focus on rooms that your guests may enter. These rooms include the television room, bathroom, and kitchen.
You will also want to make any last minute chances to your home, preferably the day before or the day of your party. This may involve moving furniture around. What you will want to do is make it easy for your guests to get around your home, namely the room in which you will be watching the NASCAR race. Speaking of furniture, do you have enough seats for all of your guests? If not, consider brining in a few lawn chairs. As a last resort, you may want to contact a few guests that you are close with and ask them to do the same.
If you are interested in decorating your home for your NASCAR party, you may want to create a NASCAR theme. You can do something as simple as decorating with balloons that are the colors of your favorite NASCAR driver’s car or you can purchase NASCAR themed party supplies, such as snack bowls in the shape of race helmets. Also, be sure to breakout merchandise that allows you to easily support your favorite driver, such as a shirt, hat, or sweatshirt.
The above mentioned steps are just a few of the many that you can take to prepare for a NASCAR party at your home on race day. As a reminder, there are a number of benefits to throwing a party for a few close friends and family members. After all, you will likely have much more fun watching a NASCAR race with those that you know and love by your side.
