No one loves hosting a game day get-together more than Jessie James Decker. The mom of two and country singer, songwriter and fashion designer is also wife to Eric Decker—pro football player for the New York Jets—which means that football season is serious business at the Decker household.
To get her home ready for game day entertaining, Jessie turned to—where else?!—Target for gorgeous fall décor pieces. We understand that your viewing party may be a casual affair filled with football, beer and chicken wings, but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice on style! Check out the touchdown-worthy transformation and a few entertaining tips, below:
“I love football season because it's during my favorite time of year, fall! Hosting a game day party is the perfect excuse for friends and family to come over and celebrate such a fun time of the year.” Quick tip: Introduce a few warm finishes to instantly make a space feel cozy for fall, like these Threshold Gold & Leather Lanterns.
“I get my home ready by prepping the night before with great food. I like to get all my serving platters from Target set out on the table and have a plan for which snacks I’ll arrange on each dish. This makes the next day so much easier.” Quick tip: Don't skimp on serveware—marble cheese boards, copper bar utensils and beautiful decorative plates are small details that guests will notice.
Quick tip: Elevate the experience without missing the game—serve a simple signature cocktail in eye-catching glassware and copper mugs, placing all the necessary fixings on a bar cart where guests can help themselves.
“I love my new fall entertaining finds from Target, especially the Threshold Faux Fur Blanket and Threshold Faux Fur Pillow. They add the right touch of glam to our game day get-togethers and are going to be perfect for the holidays!” Quick tip: Add a handful of pillows and throws in cozy textures and patterns, such as plaid, cable knit and faux fur, to make your home feel warm and inviting as the weather gets colder.
