What to bring to a World Cup party
It’s time for the World Cup. This is one of the most exciting sporting events besides the Olympics and the American Football Superbowl. While there aren’t as many countries who compete in the World Cup as there are in the Olympics, it acts as a way to bring everyone together for friendly competition to find out who is the best football (soccer) player in the world.
The 2014 World Cup is being held in Brazil this year, and runs beginning June 12 through July 13. Games can be seen on CBC’s website streaming live, or on ESPN, ESPN 2 or ABC TV channels.
You may find, too, that your friends will be having a World Cup party for the big and important games, or maybe you’re hosting one yourself! While we won’t be having one at Great West Chrysler, you can be sure we will be keeping up on the games.
Either way, it’s never a good idea to show up to a party without something to pass, and we came up with a list of what to bring to a World Cup party that is sure to help you out.
Firstly, find out what the host is serving. You don’t want to bring a duplicate dish because it may seem like you’re trying to show-up the host. Unless the host specifically asks you to bring something, don’t bring what they’re making.
Secondly, you never want to have to rely on your host for a beverage. Always bring your own beverages, even if it’s just a bottle of water.
Thirdly, try and bring a universal dish, i.e., something everyone will probably like. Don’t bring anything too spicy or hot, or too strong of flavors. Again, unless you’re specifically asked to bring something, make sure it’s something you think most people would enjoy eating or drinking.
Finally, make sure to find out if there are any food allergies within the party group, and if there are, make sure to label your dish if it will conflict with their allergy/dietary restriction.
There you have it! Overall, just use common sense and bring what you’d want to eat at a party.
