Every year the first Sunday in February millions of people tune in to watch the Super Bowl. It’s become an unofficial holiday in the United States and is a day when families and friends gather together to watch football, hilarious commercials and epic halftime shows. Whether your favorite team made it to the Big Game or not, or you are just tuning in for the commercials, you’ll score big with these tips for easy entertaining and a winning game day party!
I’m a big fan of both football and parties, so hosting a Super Bowl party is a must. When it comes to football I’m usually the girl yelling at the TV on game day and jumping up and down excitedly when incredible plays are made. I don’t want to miss a moment of the action, which is why when it comes to planning I want something that is easy, delicious and entertaining. I’ve partnered with Jason’s Deli to show you how to host a winning football party with their new Catering for Entertaining menu.
Over the years I’ve hosted lots of football parties and I’ve learned what scores big with a hungry crowd. It all starts with a hearty menu, and this year I decided on the Deli Sliders Tailgate Package and the Reuben and Rachel Sliders Tailgate Package from Jason’s Deli. Each of these packages serve 10 and comes with a side, pickles and cookies. I added the blue corn tortilla chips with guacamole, hummus and black bean & corn salad and a small fruit tray. Jason’s Deli brings wholesome, favorite foods to the party. Dyes, artificial trans fats and flavors, processed MSG, and high-fructose corn syrup aren’t invited.
I always like to have a dedicated snack station set up for our game day parties. Not only does it make it more festive and fun, it helps with the flow of the party and it’s easy to refresh and refill throughout the party. I used a large chalkboard as my backdrop and wrote my own game plays and sayings on it to create an instant football themed backdrop.
I used the DIY football field table runner I created years ago as the tablecloth for my snack station. And then I simply used metal baskets, serving platters and simple football themed decor to complete the look for our game day snack station. You don’t have to spend a lot of money to make your party festive.
I’m a firm believer in making ordinary moments extraordinary with creative details and extra special touches, but I’m an even bigger fan of making things simple and easy. Which is why I’ve become a big fan of the Jason’s Deli Catering for Entertaining menu, it has exactly what I need to create the ultimate celebration and impress my guest! There is still plenty of time to make plans for your own Super Bowl party and Jason’s Deli wants to make it even easier for you with free delivery when you order one of the Catering for Entertaining packages with the code “FDSC.”
