No long guest list, no problem. Just because you’re scaling back for this year’s big game doesn’t mean you have to curtail the fun. Chris Norwood, AIFD, Vice President of Tipton & Hurst, is sharing how we can score big with a safe, socially-distanced watch party.
Show your team spirit: Sport your squad’s signature colors throughout your décor, from runners to floral arrangements, made with Wednesday’s BOGO flowers or picked up fresh from our case.
Dip dip hooray: One of the best parts of the big game? The snacks. Be the MVP of the party by whipping up Arkansas’s own What’s Cookin’ dip mixes in individual serving cups with veggies, chips or Savory Spice’s crackers.
Bet on the spread: Abide by health and safety guidelines with pre-plated, grab-and-go mini charcuterie boards or individually wrapped bags of Arkansas-made confections, such as Lambrecht Gourmet toffee or J&M cookies.
Blow your guests away: Opting for an outdoor party this year? Create dueling balloon arches featuring the team colors for safe and festive photo-ops for your guests.
Lift their spirits: Celebrate the end of dry January, and cut down on the spread of germs, with themed cocktails in pre-mixed flavors like sangria, margarita or The Resident Chef’s spiked tea from Northwest Arkansas in single-use containers.
No matter who you cheer on or how you celebrate, we hope you do so safely. For more watch party tips and ideas, stop by one of Tipton & Hurst’s stores or visit tiptonhurst.com.
