Game day is just around the corner, and while you're not on the field facing a fierce opponent, you're probably still getting some serious nerves from planning the perfect party. But don’t stress! We’ve compiled a few tips to ensure you don’t fumble the delivery. Follow the simple guide below to score big on your watch party!
While your heartier snacks are cooking, set a few quickly prepped dishes out for those early guests. Chips and salsa are always a winner, but pretzels, veggies, and even mini hot dogs are great as well. These simple snacks will give guests something to munch on while enjoying pre-game broadcasts.
Plus, without hungry guests to distract you, you'll have plenty of time to set the full spread before the game starts.
Football and beer go hand in hand, but make sure there’s something for everyone. Lay out a few of your favorite liquors and mixers, or create a signature game-day beverage. The choices are endless!
Keep drinks and snacks separate for easy mobility. Stock your drink station with cups, ice, and straws, and slide an ice chest full of cold beers under the table for easy access.
On game day, there’s bound to be a few spills. Before you assemble your snack spread, lay a tablecloth down. This will make cleanup a breeze.
Pro tip: If your living room calls for it, set up your snack spread on the coffee table. This way, your guests won’t have to travel far to get snacks, causing fewer spills and messes. Even better, they’ll love the fact that they don’t have to miss any of the game to get their grub on!
There’s always the host that’s running around and constantly picking up after people. Don’t be that host! Use paper plates and plastic utensils and prepare ample trash space.
