Here’s how to get your home game-day ready
With the 2020-21 NHL® season fast approaching, hockey lovers are faced with plenty of uncertainty. While opening day may be in sight, it might be a while longer before fans can cheer on their favorite players in person. Thankfully there are plenty of ways you can bring the excitement of game day into your living room!
Make game day an experience
There are few things as exciting for true fans as going to an arena for a game, but that doesn’t mean you can’t bring some of the magic into your own home. Don your NHL® jerseys, grab your foam finger and transform your couch into a bona-fide cheering section! This isn’t just a great way to support your team from home — pulling out all the bells and whistles helps the experience feel special for the whole family. This isn’t just another day spent watching TV: It’s game day!
Put a homemade spin on the concessions stand
Want to add some arena ambiance? Cook up hotdogs and hamburgers to chow down just like you would in the stands! Maybe your team has a regional favorite like Philly cheesesteak or poutine you can whip up to do your hometown proud. Or you could use this recipe from AllRecipes.com to make a quick and easy hockey puck-themed dessert! No matter how you slice it, game day is the perfect chance to treat yourself to mouthwatering food.
Bring your team’s colors into your living room
While there’s nothing wrong with framing posters of your favorite players and covering your shelves with memorabilia, you don’t have to be a diehard fan to add some team-inspired flare to your home. There are many ways you can work your team spirit into your existing decor — from throw pillows to bookends. In fact, we have some incredible licensed NHL® Scentsy Warmers! They’re a fun, functional addition to your décor that will let you rep your team while enjoying fantastic fragrances.
Host a virtual watch party
Of course, part of the fun in rooting on your team is sharing that passion with others. While social distancing may keep you from having your fellow hockey lovers over to watch the game, you don’t have to put your fandom on ice! Thanks to social media, there are many ways to cheer on your team with friends and family around the world. From livestreaming your watch party, to tweeting your reaction to every pulse-pounding moment, you can share your love of the game with fans far and wide.
