Party Panache, Let’s Talk Football!

 

Okay, so now that football season is officially underway,

let’s talk about some ways to make the season memorable

with unique party ideas and yummy noshes!

 

 

 

Make a flower arrangement in your team’s colors…

I made this arrangement for the Alabama {red & white} vs Ole Miss {red & blue} game last year and these flowers combined the colors of both teams in one arrangement

 

 

 

Instead of the usual chips,

Serve onion rings and tater tots as dippers with easy

Beer Cheese  Fondue Dip

Straight from the freezer, you can fry or bake them

People will swoon with delight!

 

See more unique dippers on the Beer Cheese Fondue post here

 

 

 

Set up a Popcorn Bar

Let fans create their own combo to enjoy during the game

 

 

 

 

 

Serve a buffet of seasonings and additions

Provide individual large cups or popcorn sleeves here and here

Here are some cute ones from Amazon here and here

Or

Paint popcorn bags

 

 

Get a team pride crock pot to keep your dip warm

see a selection here and here

 

 

 

 

Add candy to Tailgate Trash in your team’s colors

You can get individual colored candies at Party City

 

 

 

 

 

 

Decorate your dip with your team’s letters or logo

 

Wedge Salad Dip

 

 

 

Shake things up with unusual serving pieces

 

Serve crudities in a strawberry pot with a bowl for the dip on top.  Put a ziplock bag full of ice in the pot which will keep the veggies & dip cold and keep the veggies from slipping down into the pot through the openings

 

 

 

 

 

How about some colored chips spilling from a cornucopia for Fall dips and snacking?

 

 

 

 

 

Serve your chips and dip in a Team Pride football helmet

 

 

 

Amp up your nacho game and serve an unexpected combo

 

Sweet Potato Nachos with Roasted Brussels Bacon and Bleu Cheese Drizzle

 

 

 

BBQ Pork & Corn Nachos

 

 

BLT Nachos

 

 

 

Wrap it in Bacon!

Brown Sugar Bacon Bundles

Wow your friends with a BLT BBQ Bloody Mary,

It’s a drink and a snack all in one!

 

 

 

 

 

Don’t forget something sweet!

Halloween Candy Cheesecake Dip

No matter who’s team wins, the fans will be happy!!
