Have you got enough seats for all the guests? Maybe get people to bring camping chairs to fit everyone in.

Theme your party food and drink around the nationalities of the Rugby World Cup qualifying teams, these include Japan, France, Italy and USA so you can let your imagination run wild!

Games If the excitement of the Rugby World Cup isn’t enough to keep guests entertained we have a few suggestions to get everyone involved. Play our Rugby Quiz at half time – great fun for all ages. Keep kids entertained with a variation on ‘pin the tail on the donkey’ by playing pin the rugby ball in the goal. Use masking tape or cardboard to mark out the posts. Other suggestions include splitting the guests into teams then picking a forfeit or challenge for every try, conversion, penalty awarded to the other team – the possibilities are endless!
