When throwing a touchdown-worthy game day soirée, it’s important to remember the four F’s: football, friends, food, and fun. That is, according to Tracy Edwards, VP/DMM of Chelsea Passage and our certified expert on to-die-for domestic décor. Among her must-haves? “A legendary rivalry, a high-def TV with surround sound, a buffet of bad-for-you little bites (think potato skins, sliders, and chicken wings), and a well-stocked bar.”

When it comes to ambiance, Tracy suggests opting for chic and neutral accessories—think refined glassware and an eye-catching serving station—that give you the chance to show your team spirit with custom candies or a vase of fresh flowers in your fan-favorite hues.

Heading to a friend’s for kickoff? Heed the expert hostess’s never-fail gift advice and take an irresistibly sweet treat like a tub of Freds Chocolate Drizzled Popcorn.

No matter which team you’re rooting for, make sure to check out Tracy’s picks below for an unforgettable—not to mention stylish—event.
