Best way to Celebrate the 2019 AFL Grand Final at Home
Author: Tenille Date Posted:9 August 2019
What do the AFL Grand Final and Edible Blooms have in common? We know this is a hard one because there are so many options, we both create cheers, we watch our deliveries and it could go on and on but the very specific and special thing we share is that we bring people together!
Ah of course you get it now! The AFL Grand Final and Edible Blooms are both about spreading joy and finding common ground for people to come together both in celebration and in hard times.
AFL is the great Australian pass time, what are you doing on a Friday night? Watching the footy, Saturday afternoon? Footy again, what sport are you taking your little ones to on a Sunday morning? You guessed it! It’s footy again and again! And there is nothing that brings people together like the AFL Grand Final, this bad boy is about the food, it’s about the game, it’s about wearing hideous colours that we are brainwashed into thinking don’t clash and so much more!
So we know the AFL Grand Final 2019 is just around the corner and while hopefully one day we will come together as a nation and build an arena big enough to fit all of Australia, this very realistic dream is not yet reality and so! We have devised a very wonderful and very specific list of ways to celebrate the AFL Grand Final at home, so strap in!
Have A Cook Off
What is better than celebrating competition with another competition?! The answer is nothing, nothing is better. Other than the AFL Grand Final itself, the food is the most important party of the day. And don’t you know it, while you’re watching your team battle it out you should be wearing your chef’s hat and making sure your BBQ is THE BBQ.
The game doesn’t usually start until mid-afternoon and yet in true Aussie fashion the festivities normally begin mid-morning so eating is the perfect thing to do while watching all of the pre-game celebrations! Some friendly competition never hurt anyone and a little Edible Blooms take home trick, if you’re the host, setting up a cook off is a great way to it make sure everybody brings something! Perhaps in the AFL Grand Final 2019 there can only be one team on that podium, but you sure can bet everybody wins at the food party.
Dress Up As Your Favourite Player
We mean, who doesn’t love dress ups?! Why not make it footy themed and really bring out the fun in everyone on this momentous occasion! Even if your team isn’t playing it is still good to show your support, even though you’re crying on the inside no one needs to know that at a party, why not take that extra step to hide your sorrow and completely disguise yourself?! Plus players of the past and present have sported some pretty wonderful facial hair and hair styles over the years so if looking ridiculous is something you enjoy, this is your time to shine! AFL Grand Final 2019 get up!
Also, a dress up party is the best kind of party. Period. We won’t be taking questions about this at this time.
Make It A Footy Themed Day
The AFL Grand Final isn’t only for the professionals, get right into it! Play some marks up, a scratch match, anything that makes you feel even more involved, the AFL Grand Final is about so much more than the game itself so be creative and get yourself moving. If you focus really super-duper hard you can even pretend you’re playing Auskick out on the field during half time, um fun! This one is fabulous if you’re celebrating with your young ones because it gets their blood pumping and they really need to get a taste for this kind of thing early if they are going love the AFL Grand Final as much as you do.
It’s okay to be a footy mum, it’s not the same thing as a stage mum, we promise.
Eating is just the best, it’s a simple fact and the AFL Grand Final is no exception to this rule, it’s an example of this rule and during the game there are lots of different types of eating that commence. The classic hungry eating, comfort eating, stress eating, binge eating all come out to play and when you’re in the mood for something sweet Edible Blooms is there for you. Our bouquets can be customised in your team’s colours and really create some serious pow at your AFL Grand Final 2019 celebrations!
So whether it be making the food your personal party, dressing up in your team’s (what we have already established are CLASHING) colours, or simply hanging out with some friends and family the AFL Grand Final is for everyone and at Edible Blooms we will be sure to be waving our bouquets and throwing our hampers in the air to celebrate the AFL Grand Final 2019.
