Throwing a Coors Light-themed party can be a lot of fun. You've got friends, food, fun and good beer, so what's not to love? Just be safe. Choose a day on which most of your guests are likely to have a morning to recover in case someone has one beer too many. Appoint one or two of your guests to help you monitor everyone's drinking, and have a few sober rides or taxi cabs on call.
Gather the Posse
Send the invitations. Choose cards that represent your theme, such as beer mug-shaped cards, cards printed with beer bottles or cards with a cartoon figure giving a toast. Mention it's a Coors Light party. Write something amusing such as, "Jason's turning 21 and we're throwing a party as cool as the Rockies!" or "Grab a Coors Light/And join us tonight!" Roll a paper invitation up and stick it in a Coors Light bottle, can or a red Solo cup for a creative way to package your invitation and further drive the point home.
Set the Scene
It's decoration time, and you can go as all-out as you want. Arrange Coors Light cans in tiered circles to create a beer "cake." Wrap each layer with a ribbon and top it with a decoration such as tinsel, ornamental lights or a picture of the person for whom you're giving the party, if there is one. Set metal buckets of Coors Light nestled in ice around the room or set one large metal tub full of beer in a central location. Put neon Coors Light signs on the wall. Blow up a poster of the iconic Rockies scene that Coors Light is inspired by and hang it on the wall. Ask several female friends to be the "pour girls," who are usually present at Coors Light events to sell beer and entertain the crowd.
Fix the Vittles
Bowls filled with pretzels and peanuts carry on the beer theme. Provide foods made with Coors Light to take it a step further. Add beer-can chicken, beer-cheddar soup, beer bread, beer-braised brisket or even beer-infused cake to the menu. Bake a cake decorated with Coors Light cans, bottle tops or the Rockies symbol made of fondant, or provide individual cupcakes decorated the same way. Stack plastic silverware in an empty six-pack box for guests to grab as they fill their plates and provide blue, silver and red napkins.
Consider your guests when you decide entertainment. Play the cult movie "Beerfest," if no one present is likely to be offended by the raunchy humor. Set up classic drinking games like beer pong, quarters, drink or dare, and questions. Steer away from games that involve drinking too much too fast; you want everyone to have a great night, not a blacked-out, hangover-inducing nightmare. Set up corn-hole boards and provide bean bags bearing the Coors Light logo.
