Hey party people! Today we’re showing you how to throw the best cocktail-filled, grown up game night!
Grab Some Guests
Gather your most outgoing (read: competitive) friends for your game night. When choosing your guest list, keep in mind that you’ll be creating teams, so even numbers tend to work better.
We decided to pay homage to Scrabble Day (yes, that’s right, this Saturday, April 14 is actually Scrabble Day) by creating a letter tile backdrop for our party. Using two tones of kraft paper, we made whimsical, larger than life Scrabble game pieces. Our favorite part about this backdrop is how customizable it is. You can spell out any number of cheeky messages.
An enormous green marbled ballon added a pop of color and whimsy, while our navy tablecloth balanced the bright colors.
You’ll need sustenance as you make your way through rounds of different board games. If you want something a little more cocktail hour than ordering a pizza, try creating a cheeseboard! We’ve come up with a foolproof step by step to guide you through creating a totally *sophisticated* cheeseboard.
- Start with our fab wooden cheeseboards (small or large) as a base.
- Fill your board with a mixture of cheeses with different textures. We like using a combination of a dry cheese (like an extra sharp white cheddar), a bold cheese (like a stilton), soft cheese (like a brie). Cheeses come in all sorts of flavors so don’t hesitate to mix some salty and sweet varieties!
- Spice up your cheeseboard with fresh and dried fruit, different varieties of crackers, and nuts. Texture is the name of this cheese game.
- If not vegetarian, you can also add slices of a summer sausage or prosciutto to your board.
