Happy New Year! I am so excited to be sharing inspiration for one of my favorite party themes: football. If you follow my blog, you know that I love football. I especially love tailgating. Tailgating is the perfect excuse to make all your favorite foods and invite friends over. The best part you don’t have to even watch the game to have fun.
Game Day Appetizers Bar Cart
Bar carts are perfect for parties like tailgating. You can move your snacks around, so they are easy for your guests to watch the game and snack at the same time.
Game Day Appetizers
For this party we bought all my husband’s favorites including: Tyson® Any’tizers® Buffalo Boneless Bites, Tyson® Crispy Chicken Strips, State Fair® Classic Mini Corn Dogs, Hillshire Farm® Beef Lit’l Smokies smoked sausage, cheese and crackers. Now is a great time to stock up on game time appetizers with Shopkick offers.
As a mom I love buying Tyson® chicken because not only are they all white meat chicken but they are also antibiotic free. All these products are already fully cooked, so all you have to do is heat them up. Even better, each Tyson product only takes about 15 minutes to be ready to serve!
A great tip is to use cake stands to display your food. When the game started I moved this cheese plate to the center of the table, so everyone could enjoy it.
One of my tips to make setting up for a party easy is to lay out everything so you are not searching for dishes as guests arrive. It also makes it easy for others to help you when they know where everything goes.
Game Day Decor and Games
B was recently introduced to Bingo and she loves it. So, when I found these Game Day Bingo cards, I bought two packs. It is the perfect way to get everyone into the game.
Pick a theme or color to use for your party. Over Christmas, I was reminded just how much I love plaid. This plaid setup works well even if your team is not playing.
Where to Find Everything for Game Day Appetizers
Walmart has everything you need for the perfect game day appetizers. Don't forget to check out the shopkick offers.
Over the holidays I used Walmart’s grocery delivery service and I will never go back. The driver texted me when she was at the store and again when she was on her way. She arrived just a couple of minutes into the hour window I selected and brought everything I had ordered online. This is a total game changer, pun intended.
We don't have football here but these snacks look so yuuuuummmy!! I am all about snacks!
I am team snacks too. No game needed!
This looks like such a fun setup for Game Day! Now I'm craving for corn dogs and chicken wings.
I am always ready for corn dogs!!!
What great ideas!! I love the idea of putting the food on the bar cart!!
Thank you. Game changer for me to stop spinning around the house before guests arrive
There really is nothing better than an appetizer. It’s so fun to eat a bunch of different things!
I could not agree more.
Yum! I love the idea of a snack cart actually. Making one for game day makes lots of sense because we are focused on the game and don’t want to miss a play because we want more food.
My thoughts exactly. I am here for the snacks!!!

all these look good but buffalo wings are my personal favorite!
Buffalo wings are always a good idea.

Just when I thought I couldn’t love appetizers more, you showed me that a gorgeous display makes them even better! I love the cake stand idea.
Your comment made my day!!! And I agree cake stands are an entertainers dream.
OKAY YUM!! Looks like a great gameday spread!
Thank you. We have been enjoying these treats all week
