8 party ideas for the Big Game + win!

The Big Game AND your party are only a few short weeks away! And I’ve got your back ladies! This morning I’m sharing 8 fun, easy and stylish ideas to make your football party table more than just the halftime show. Yep, no flag on the field here! {grin}

Let’s start with the football party snack table set-up. I grabbed many of these fun football party supplies at World Market, a store you can always count on for gourmet foods and beverages with unique flavors and origins.

My absolute favorite find for this football party is my backdrop, a weathered map of the United States. It will be perfect not only for the Big Game, but for all my football parties (or any sport for that matter) throughout the year.

I made this little pennant banner that I can move between states as different teams play! By the way, the pennant colors will be updated for this year’s Big Game once the final teams are announced. More details below! And if you want to make your own pennant, I’m going to post the easy how tos later this week.

My hubby thought the Beers of the World were a must!

And of course I had to have a cupcake or two… well I mean, of course right! You can download my free Game Day cupcake templates in 2013 colors here.

The boys had to have their pick too. Football shaped pretzels and Artichoke and Spinach Chips. And yes, kids do love them!

Want to recreate part or all of this table for your football party? Here are my resources:

  • Backdrop – map of the United States from World Market
  • Tablecloth – green indoor outdoor carpeting from your local hardware store
  • Serving items – blue lunch bags from your local grocery, popcorn containers from World Market
  • Pre-made snacks – UTZ football shaped pretzels and Jensen’s Orchard Spinach and Artichoke Chips from World Market
  • Beverages – Beers of the World from World Market
  • Serving dishes - 3-tier cupcake and mini pizza display from World Market
  • Food labels – chalkboard placecards and food labels from World Market
  • Free printable party supplies – cupcake wrappers, cupcake picks and pennant banner are my designs, The Celebration Shoppe, and the colors have been updated for the 2013 Big Game (updated each year). Download your Game Day templates now. Don’t want to miss any free templates, sign up for our e-mails.

I also made a few recipes for my Big Game party table. The first, and likely my favorite food item on the table, is Chocolate Bacon Popcorn. Yep, you read me right. World Market sells Bacon Salt and it gave me this inspiration for this little sweet and salty treat. Your guests, especially the guys, will love it!

To make Chocolate Bacon Popcorn you’ll need:

  • 6 cups of air popped popcorn
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate melts (available at your local grocery or craft store with a baking section)
  • J&D’s Bacon Salt
  • Wax paper

And the simple steps for Chocolate Bacon Popcorn:

  • Spread your popcorn on the wax paper (you’ll likely need to do this in 2-3 batches)
  • Place your chocolate melts in a resealable plastic bag (snipped on one end) or in a small glass bowl and heat in the microwave in 8 second intervals, three times, or until melted
  • Drizzle chocolate over popcorn
  • Before chocolate cools, shake on J&D’s Bacon Salt to your desired taste.

I also made mini pizzas, a favorite of our family since I was a kid. We typically use pumpernickel bread, but I found these yummy Minigrill Mini Toasts at World Market and they turned out perfectly.

To make Mini Toast Party Pizzas you’ll need:

  • Ground beef, cooked and strained
  • Ground sausage, cooked and strained
  • Original pizza sauce
  • Cheddar, Sharp and Mozzarella and Provolone blended
  • Minigrill Mini Toasts from World Market

And the simple how to steps for Mini Toast Party Pizza:

  • Blend your cooked meats and pizza sauce in a pan and bring to a simmer
  • Add a small amount of your cheese mixture allowing it to melt
  • Top mini toasts with mixture
  • Drizzle remaining cheese on top

By the way, World Market isn’t just great for celebrations. They have a wonderful array of ideas and products for decorating your home. I personally want some of their whimsical white wall frames for my studio makeover, but they have furniture, including chairs and sofas (there was one gray number that would be beautiful in my living room!), end tables, and on and on. If you’re looking to freshen up your home for the new year, you should absolutely give World Market a browse!

FREE Super Bowl party printables

Hosting a Super Bowl party this year?! Download my wrappers and mini pennant banners, updated from my original Snackpicks.com article, for the two winning teams: NY Giants and New England Patriots. I confirmed that the Giants will be wearing their away white jerseys (white chevron wrappers) and the Patriots will wear their blue jerseys (blue chevron wrappers). You can use them all, or just your favorite team. The set also includes a 11×17 football field mat and a 11×17 green grass chevron mat (great for a backdrop for your stadium). 

UPDATE for 2013 Colors ~ Baltimore vs. 49ers ~ templates can be downloaded now! And see more Super Bowl party ideas including bacon and chocolate popcorn. {grin}

Crafting the printables is simple. I recommend card stock for the wrappers and pennants, but you can use regular printer paper if you like. Secure the wrapper loosely around a cupcake liner with double sided tape or hot glue and fill the wrappers with snacks. For the pennants, wrap the diamonds around a toothpick and secure with an Elmer’s glue stick.

Next, grab a wire spice rack for your stadium and set up your fans! I chose Cheez-It crackers for my snacks and I picked up my wire rack at Target!

stadium of Cheez-It fans

For my most recent project with Kellogg’s Snackpicks, I created a fun and simple idea for the upcoming Super Bowl party season. I know what you’re thinking, these aren’t going to be the Super Bowl colors! That’s because this project was created months ago. But now with the game only a few weeks away and with the teams being finalized soon, I’m thinking it might be fun to update these as a little free printable?! {smile} UPDATE: FREE 2012 printables are posted! AND 2013 Super Bowl party templates are posted!

For the stadium, I just picked up a wire spice rack, filled cupcake liners with my favorite Cheez-Its, there are tons of flavors, wrapped them in these little cups, gave them some pennants and done!

These could be great for all kinds of snacks too. Kellogg’s has these fabulous 100 calorie pack mini cookies that would be a perfect fit. They even have white chocolate covered pretzel hitting the shelves this month and they are super yummy! Confession: I had a bag last night with my evening cup of coffee… and I didn’t even feel guilty about it! {smirk}

Hop over to Kellogg’s Snackpicks for tons of Super Bowl recipes ideas too, like mini chipotle hamberger sliders, bruschetta bites, brownie rainbow pie and more! And no worries, I’ll link the free printables back to this post as soon as they’re ready! UPDATE: FREE 2012 printables are posted! And 2013 Super Bowl party templates are posted!
