Throwing The Best Game Day Party Possible

Football season is coming up, and we all know what that means–entertaining small and large groups of friends, watching the big games, and enjoying everything the sport has to offer. If you’re planning on throwing a big bash for the Super Bowl, playoffs, or the first game of the season, then following these tips is sure to help you throw the most unforgettable game day soiree ever!

Aside from the game itself, food and drink are the most important component to a winning game day gathering. Most folks find that the best format for food at such a party is the buffet. If the food is set out and readily available to your guests, they can come and go as they please, snacking here and there and getting a larger plate of portions should the hunger strike them. Half-time is the perfect time to bring out warmer dishes or main parts of the meal like burgers, dogs, and sub sandwiches. You can start out the first half of the game with drinks, finger foods, and snacks that are easy to grab a handful of and munch on while watching the first half of the game. Once your guests are riled and ready, bring out the main course. Then after the second half of the game begins, you can set out desserts and sweet treats to finish of the night with! Be sure to include vegetarian options for friends who eat meat-free, and healthier options for folks who may not be into chips and burgers. Edible Arrangements offers lots of healthy, fruitful options that will look and taste beautiful on your special Game Day Buffet table!

Of course the taste of the food is most important, but the way you present the food can also have a major effect on how your party is enjoyed by others! Use a chalkboard with mock plays drawn in white chalk to label your buffet area, or cut out football shapes from brown construction paper and craft tiny labels for each individual dish on your buffet table so that guests won’t have to ask what is in or on each dish. Use football-inspired phrases and terminology to add a little tongue-in-cheek quirkiness to the names of your dishes. Cover water and soda bottles with referee-style black and white patterns, or use green place mats with white markings to mock the yard lines on the field. Your guests will love this little attention to detail!

Game day is a great time to gather together with friends, family, and teammates to enjoy the excitement of your favorite sport. Throwing parties can often be daunting, but if you follow these easy steps, you’re sure to have a winning get together that your guests will remember for many seasons to come!
