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!
