Football Party Ideas and Tips

When throwing a football party, I always try to plan for last-minute guests, making sure I have more than enough of everything from plates and cups, to chips, cookies, and dip.

Plan ahead for special dietary requirements, food allergies, or food intolerances. I keep gluten free buns, and veggie burgers on hand, just in case!

I also set up a fun crafting station for any kids who might be coming, to keep them entertained while the game is on!

Don’t forget to keep foil and takeout containers at the ready so that your guests can take leftovers home with them!
