How to Plan a Winning Big Game Party

If you want to have a big-game bash that your friends will remember after the final whistle blows, you need to have a game plan. Here’s how you can make your party worthy of a championship.

 Set the mood.
Create a great game-day atmosphere with football-themed party supplies such as football field table covers, banners, streamers, paper plates and cups. If you’ve got the opposing team’s jerseys, t-shirts or hats, hang them on the walls. Keep a soft football or two around the house to toss around between plays. If you really want to go over the top, you can offer to paint your guests’ faces in their team’s colors.

Check your equipment.
You can’t beat a large, dust-free flat screen to take in all the action. With the TV off, gently clean the monitor with a soft microfiber cloth. Do not use paper towels or tissues as they can scratch the surface. If you’ve got a home sound-system, check the connections for optimum audio quality. Clear any unnecessary furniture or clutter from the viewing area and make sure there’s plenty of room for all to sit or stand up and cheer after a score.

Have plenty of food and drink on hand.

Watching an event this exciting can take a lot out of your guests, so make sure you serve plenty of refreshments to refuel the fans. Put out bowls of chips, pretzels and dips for the pre‑game. Once the game starts, break out the nachos with salsa, melted cheese and sour cream. A hearty pot of chili, hero sandwiches, pizza and buffalo chicken wings are always crowd favorites. Have plenty of soft drinks and water on hand to keep everyone hydrated and happy.

Easy peasy Pepperoni Rollups
4-6 Tbs. unsalted butter
3/4 c brown sugar
1 package of softened cream cheese. {8 oz.}
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt

Melt the butter and sugar in the microwave together for 2 min covered, stirring half-way.
mix in cream cheese until its all melted and combined, may even need an electric mixer to be sure it’s completely smooth. add vanilla and salt (or omit the salt if you use salted butter).

Don’t forget the bathroom.
It’s a long day and the bathroom will be busy, so make sure it’s clean and well stocked with plenty of hand soap, clean towels, room deodorizer and toilet paper. After all, you don’t want your loo to look like a locker room.

Now sit back and enjoy the game!
