Kara's Party Ideas Tips for a Game Day Party Touchdown! | Kara's Party Ideas

Planning a party for the Big Game? No matter what team you are rooting for, or whether you are just here for the snacks, I’ve got some tips for a Game Day Party Touchdown! If you don’t want to go all out for a  touchdown party, then you can choose one or two ideas for a solid Pick 6, Field Goal, or 2-Point Conversion…a win is a win, right?

When planning any get together, consider the space you have to work with, the activity you are engaging in, and the party guests. With a sports game, whether it is a wicked cool FIFA soccer game, or a once-a-year ultimate football game, your guests are going to be focused mainly on the score. You can ensure a wicked awesome party by considering the following:

The Game Day Food

I like to have the food set up in a buffet style, with the portions small and the options plentiful. Consider the fact that most people will be balancing a plate on their lap with jumps and cheers happening between bites of culinary goodness. You can place individual portions out or place food in big bowls for guests to portion out their own food. You can also combine a little of each to shake things up a bit.

Portions can be placed inside themed containers, like these football field cups filled with pretzels.

Even though the focus is on the food, you can set up the party in a unique way to create visual interest.
