Awesome Game Day Party Ideas |

I like to keep things casual at our football parties. There are usually some guests glued to the TV and others chatting in the kitchen. So the more relaxed the vibe, the better.

But I still want it to look good and taste good. So here are 5 tips for throwing an awesome game day party this football season…


I like to set up a buffet table with finger foods that I keep replenishing. That way people can serve themselves whenever they want to eat, and it doesn’t feel formal.

I usually set out a variety of foods, many in small portions. My goal is to give my guests options.

And also here are some free penalty flag printables to help you decorate.

I always put out lots of drinks so people can help themselves. How cute are these football themed mason jars?


For finger foods, how about trying these Bacon-Wrapped Cheeseburger RITZwiches. How yummy do these look?

Or for chips and dip, how about serving some savory Greek yogurt Chicken Shawarma Dip with WHEAT THINS Toasted Pita Original Oven Baked Crackers.

And for dessert you can’t top these no-bake OREO Cookie Ball Football Helmets. You only need four ingredients: cream cheese, OREO Cookies, candy melts and pretzels. That’s it!

Using artificial turf, white duct tape, and felt letters, you can make a fun statement with your buffet table! Here are more detailed instructions.

Of course nothing goes better with football than Coca-Cola®. I like to serve glass bottles and to keep them ice cold and on the ready.

And how cool is a personalized bottle of Coke!


While your guests are parked around the TV, pass out these fun free printable football bingo cards and have them mark off (with bottle caps) which items they see during the game. Your guests will love this!

And for a buffet table backdrop, hang up black paper, and using chalkboard markers, draw on some plays!
