One of my favorite parts of football season is having everyone over to watch the game and eat some game day food! Now that THE big game is only a week away I’m really excited to plan some good food to eat… but I also don’t want to be locked away in the kitchen. I want to be where the action is… especially when the commercials are on! Last weekend I threw a little football party using these football party ideas I created as a test for the big game starting soon! It was a great time!
I started a fun tradition a couple of years ago of serving a different course of food at eat quarter.
I took pockets and sliced them into threes and added these cute football toothpicks to them to make them more festive. They are the perfect appetizers and come in lots of different flavors. I bought the ham and cheese in crescent bread and the pepperoni pizza in garlic buttery seasoned crust!
The second quarter always seems to happen way quicker than I think it will… thankfully I had this pizza ready to go right when the clock said it was 2nd quarter time! I had a little extra cheddar cheese so I sprinkled that on top to give it a little more jazz. It didn’t need any help being delicious… but I still liked the added color!
Once the third quarter came around the Lasagna was ready! This was a huge hit and there is so much of it that my parents took the rest home for lunch the next day! I loved that there was no clean up after I put the whole thing into the oven and then served it from the same pan!
There were a few moments when I wasn’t sure if there was even going to be room in our stomachs for more food… but as soon as I brought out the dessert tray we all found some space! I bought Sundae Ice Cream and Dipped ice cream for us all to enjoy.
I wanted to serve the ice cream in a fun way that is still easy to eat while we watch the big game so I made some chocolate chip cookies and added some ice cream to them to make ice cream sandwiches! So good!!!
How do you celebrate the big game?
What cute ideas. I love the little football picks!
Thanks Ellen… they were an easy thing to add on!
DiGiorno pizza is really good and at such a reasonable price, worth stocking up on! I haven’t tried the limited edition ice cream!
I know it was only $4.50 for the pizza… total bargain!
I like the idea of stuffing ice cream between two cookies, although my son loves Hot Pockets and would not mind if that was my entire party menu.
The Hot Pockets are pretty yummy. They have so many different flavors too!
Great ideas! And so delicious! I like the little football flags, fun!
Thanks Joanna! They were a fun touch!
I am watching the game at your place. I love the snacks and the football tooth picks are adorable.
Love that the snacks are spread during the game and they all look so good!!!
Thanks Tammilee! I think spreading it out makes it even more fun!
Boy.. you have it all figured out.. I’m coming to your house to party… YUMMMM
It looks like your house is the place to party because you have good food! We are not big into football, but we love the commercials and food that goes along with it. 🙂
My husband and daughter really enjoy the games… I’m more of a commercial and food girl too!
love the 4 quarters of food idea!!
Thanks Brett! I think it makes the food part even more fun!
Yum! This post made me hungry. lol. We love pizza on game day, too.
I think pizza is mandatory for game watching!
Oh my! I just ate dinner, but I’m hungry again! Yum! And those appetizers look amazing as do the desserts!
I think so too! They look yummy and tasted great too!
LOVE your choices!!! And food each quarter? Yes please!! YUM!
Thanks Jennifer! It’s surprising how fast the game goes by with a bunch of yummy food too!
I wouldn’t even care about the game! I’d just be looking forward to the next quarter’s course!
LOL! I look forward to the food too!
It seems SO EASY when you use these Nestle foods and divide it up into Quarters! Party people would never go hungry with this game plan! Such great tips. #client
Totally agree Jenny! So easy to make and always a hit!
What a cute idea to present your meal in “quarters!” Love that!!! Nice presentation of your food too! Perfect for Game Day! #client
