The Superbowl is right around the corner, and people everywhere are prepping their homes for football parties. Friends and family will gather around the TV to watch the big game. If you are the host of one of these football parties, you want to make sure that friends and family members of all ages have a great time and get plenty to eat. We are planning our own football party with a little help from CVS/pharmacy and their Gold Emblem line of snacks. With these quality snack items and a few extra tips, I know our party will be a huge hit!
1. Consider Allergies and Dietary Restrictions
One of the most important things you can do to make sure everyone has fun when planning a football party is to consider everyone’s allergies or dietary restrictions. It would be awful to host a party and have a guest no be able to enjoy any of the food items because of these restrictions. Ask guests ahead of time so that you know what food to avoid.
2. Go with Finger Foods
The easiest way to streamline your food items at a football party and reduce the stress on yourself, is to go with finger foods. Not only does it make serving easy, but you also do not have the trouble of washing utensils or the expense of buying disposable ones. Plus, snack foods that you can just pick up and eat are fun and part of the traditional football party line-up.
3. Have a Variety of Food Items
Not everyone likes the same thing. Choosing a variety of food items for guests of all ages will ensure that everyone has a great time and gets plenty to eat. The Gold Emblem line of snacks from CVS/pharmacy is so versatile. They have a wide range of items from flavored nuts to veggie chips, popcorn, cookies, trail mix and even beef jerky. The Gold Emblem snacks are high quality and you can pick up everything else you need for the party while you are at CVS as well.
4. Create a Unique Centerpiece
You can make life a lot easier when planning a football party menu by just going with bowls of snacks if you have one unique centerpiece item. This can be decorations as well, but it’s so much better when you can make a statement and set the tone of the party with a cool football themed food item. For our party, we are creating a cheese and cracker plate in the shape of a football, I can’t wait to see how it turns out!
