ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

(BPT) - Gear up for the game day crowd — and those who are just there for the commercials — with these hosting tips, bite-size snack ideas, DIY decorations and party games.

1. Don’t let easy-to-forget items keep you sidelined

A dead remote is the quickest way to sideline a big game watch party. But, don’t worry — this game day hosting checklist will ensure you’re fully prepared for kick-off.

2. Pick the plate of the game

Save yourself from loading the dishwasher or washing a sink full of dishes after the game. Just serve appetizers and snacks on sturdy disposable tableware, like Chinet Classic White plates.

3. Set up festive, football-themed decor

A little decoration goes a long way. Trick out your table with an easy-to-make football napkin fold.

4. Home field advantage

Set up a snack buffet with a DIY table runner made to look like a football field using AstroTurf. Take left over pieces of turf and create quick and easy coasters.

5. Sip in style

Earn style points with your guests by dressing up disposable cups to look like footballs using washi tape or paint to make the laces.

6. Cover the spread

What’s a party without the snacks? Keep guests fully satisfied by arranging the entire spread on the coffee table where it’s easily accessible.

7. Go big with dips

Show your team spirit and creativity with a fan-favorite recipe — Big Game Bean Dip. Simply make a traditional layered dip and recreate your favorite team stadium.

8. Easy finger foods for the win

Upgrade traditional tailgate sliders to savory subs. Add meatball sliders to the starting lineup at your big game bash.

9. Just wing it

When it comes to wings and football, there’s no such thing as overdoing it. This big-batch recipe for homemade buffalo wings will have guests touching down in the kitchen before you can even set the plate down.

10. Get your game on

Let’s face it — for most people, the ads are the most entertaining part of the game. Add some fun and competition to the party with Big Game Bingo.
