Attending the Masters is an experience of a lifetime, but sometimes you may not be able to snag those tickets, so you’ve got to do the next best thing – party like a patron and throw the ultimate Masters watch party!
A watch party is a great way to bring together friends and family together, while still appreciating the game of golf. With a little bit of pre-planning and help from this guide, you and your crew will feel like you are right there at the Augusta National, or very close to it.
You’ve got the guest list; we’ve got you on everything else. Let’s start with decoration ideas.
I’ve got 3 words for you: green, yellow, and white. From balloons to tablecloths to utensils, try to incorporate those colors whenever you can just like you would see all over the Augusta National.
If your party is indoors, place some Azaleas in vases around the room to bring in that greenery. Anything golf-related can be incorporated and of course, anything that you may have that is Masters-related like cups or magazines can be a part of the party décor.
What to Wear
If you want to go all out, you’ve got to dress the part. Dress as if you are actually at the tournament. Here are a few suggestions that you may already have in your closet.
- Sun visor
- Collared shirts
- Golf shorts
If you do have some official Masters gear, sport that. Maybe a few partygoers can make a statement by wearing a blazer similar to the iconic green jackets.
Food and Drinks
Now, this is the easy part. The food is one of the most popular parts when experiencing the Masters.
First up on the menu is a pimento cheese sandwich. Even if you don’t know much about the Masters, you’ve probably heard about the pimento cheese sandwiches. Next up on the menu is the egg salad sandwiches.
If you are anything like me, those two sandwiches aren’t your cup of tee – so an old-fashioned Golf club sandwich will do.
The rumors have been put to rest, and the Peach Ice Cream sandwiches are back at the Masters. This a great dessert choice to also have on your watch party menu. Fun Masters-themed treats would also be a cool addition.
When it comes to drinks, there are a few you can choose from, but whatever you decided you’ve got to include an Arnold Palmer. An Arnold Palmer is a non-alcoholic beverage that combines iced tea and lemonade. The name refers to the former Masters champion, who would often request this drink combination.
This is just the start of what you can do. Take this guide and create the ultimate master’s watch party that’ll have you feeling like you’re really there.
