DIY Series: How-to host the ultimate Grand Final party
With finals fever heating up, here’s a foolproof guide to winning MVP this grand final weekend.
Round up the crew at your place and put on a party they’ll never forget, with a little help from Westfield Chermside.
Fully loaded footy snacks and bevvies
Take your guests straight to the stadium with a classic footy feast. If you like to keep it low-maintenance, stock up on lots of chips and dips from Fresh Sensations, Coles or Woolworths and create a spread for the nervous snackers in the group. Better yet, order some takeaway from your Westfield favourites Guzman Y Gomez, Grill’d, Kinn + Derm, Nandos or San Churro and cut your prep time in half.

Don’t stop there, why not create a hotdog or burger station? Get fresh buns, snags and toppings from Chermside Butcher & Grill, Fresh Sensations or Coles. Cook the perfect patty on a brand new barbeque and level up with barbeque accessories from MYER, Target, Kmart, or Big W.
Don’t forget the bevvies! Stock up on your favourite beer, wine and spirits from Dan Murphy’s, or BWS. Keep them ice-cold with an esky, or have a make-your-own-cocktail bar with all the trimmings with drink dispensers, glasses, disposable cups and paper straws from House, adairs, Bed Bath N’ Table or Wheel & Barrow fully stocked with soft drinks and juices.

Get that game day atmosphere
Have you been eyeing off a new TV for a while? This is the perfect excuse to upgrade! With the ideal TV set-up, you’ll feel like you’ve got front row seats to the game.
Experience each play picture-perfect with an Ultra HD TV, and consider adding a sound bar to drown out the roars of your opponents for a thrilling viewing experience. Find them both at JB Hi-Fi, Myer or David Jones.
Show off your fan gear
Does your mate support the opposing team? For a bit of fun, wager a bet that has them wearing your team's colours by the end of the night.
Keep your nerves in check during half-time by whipping up a fresh batch of popcorn with your very own machine from Kmart, Target, Big W, JB Hi-Fi, Myer. Invest in a speaker from JB Hi-Fi and crank up your team’s song to get excited for those final minutes. Blast some victory tunes post-game and you’ll be ready to party the night away!
