Game Day Tips & Tricks

Hello everyone, I hope you all are having a wonderful day! I am sharing with you a guide to have a relaxing and easy tailgate gathering. This post will have everything from food ideas, to stress-free planning, and easy decorations. So, keep on reading if you want to find out how to!

Serve delicious, easy snacks

  • Stick to the classics like pigs in a blanket, chips and dip, loaded potato skins, and mini sliders.

  • Of course, you can try other fun and new snacks like buffalo chicken dip, pull-apart bread, and mini pretzel bites with homemade sauces.

Supply cold and refreshing drinks

  • Keep them simple, stick to cans like beer and soda

  • Add fun freshments like lemonade, a signature drink, a seasonal drink, or iced tea

  • Do not forget to keep extra drinks in the fridge for hydrating refreshments

Extra preparation before game day

  • Have extra chairs and cushions for comfortable watching

  • Have a decently large table for the ultimate snacking

  • Make sure you have plenty of plates, napkins, cups, and utensils

  • Keep bottle openers, phone chargers on hand

  • Try to prepare as much as possible the day before

Make simple decorations

  • Keep the team colors throughout the event

  • Incorporate desserts and other foods with the team's signature colors. You can try out chex mix recipes or even chocolate-dipped pretzels

  • Make easy banners with team colors and buy colored tablecloths for easy decorating

  • You do not have to go all out with the decorating, but simple decorations help makes guests excited for the big day!

Have additional games for added fun

  • One way to help pass time with the commercials is to have additional smaller games. For example, card games or quick group party games

  • You can either play these before the game or during commercial breaks.

Do not forget to enjoy yourself

  • As the host, it can be stressful so, do not worry about cleanup until the event is over.

  • Relax, sit down, and actually watch the game!
