How to Host a Eurovision Party
If you’re like us, we use any excuse to throw a party. And what better excuse than Eurovision 2023? The Eurovision Song Contest is a time-honored tradition that brings people from all over the world together to celebrate music and culture. With the 2023 contest on the horizon (13 May!), now is the perfect time to start planning your Eurovision party. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
Make it a Pot Luck
Friends always asking you what they can bring? Once your guest list confirmed, ask your pals to bring a dish that represents their favourite Eurovision country. Not only is this is a great way to get in the spirit of the contest and experience different cultures, it helps save you time in the kitchen.
Add a Beverage Pairing
What do gin, champagne, and Carlsberg all have in common (besides being delicious)? They each pair wonderfully with their respected local cuisines. Course out your friend’s creations with the complemented beverage of their choice to get the full cultural experience of each participating country.
Run a Sweepstake
With dozens of countries vying for the top spot, watching the Eurovision Song Contest is always a little competitive. So why not add an extra level of friendly competition with your friends by using our easy-to-use sweepstake generator? Here’s how it works: everyone chips in some cash and gets assigned a country at random. All you need to do is enter the names and emails of your watch party into the generator and you’re all set - there’s no limit to the number of people who can join in on the fun.
Make it a Game Night
The contest's finale can go on for hours, which means there might be a lull or two throughout the night. Here are some ideas to keep the party going:
