Football Party Ideas For The Big Game


By: Kara Woolery of Lillian Hope Designs

Hi, friends! Kara Woolery here from Lillian Hope Designs. I'm excited to share some football party ideas using DISPOSABLE AND DURABLE Chinet® Classic White plates and napkins and Chinet® Cut Crystal® cups and cutlery. I am a busy mom and anytime I have an excuse to not do dishes... I am all in! Am a right?! I hope you enjoy these fabulous football party ideas, the delicious chicken bacon ranch slider recipe, and free printables.


Usually when entertaining we set up on the kitchen counter, but when it comes to the big game we like the food to be as close to the TV as possible! I kept all of the dishes and tableware disposable for easy cleanup. The Chinet brand is my go to because of the amazing durability, and I love the fact that their products are made in the USA. If you don't have a media stand that will work to hold your food, then you can use a table or your kitchen counter.

Hanging banners on the front of your serving table is an easy way to jazz up the space. The Go Team Banner is a free printable download and easy to assemble.


My favorite football party food idea has to be sliders. They are easy to make and the perfect size for a football watch party. Your guests will be begging you for more of these Chicken Bacon Ranch Sliders. The recipe is easy and they are literally mouth watering. Perfect for the big game!

Buffalo wings are another great football party food idea, and a must-have at a game day watch party.


Use Chinet Cut Crystal cups to create fun DIY football cups. Simply add one vertical line using white tape. Then add three horizontal lines using the same white tape. Just like that, you have fabulous and disposable party cups! You can download these adorable mini foam finger printables and attach to straws for extra pizzazz.


I don't think I have told you about these AMAZING Chinet Chip & Dip Party Trays yet. They are seriously my favorite party tray I have used. They are disposable, extra heavy duty, and deep to hold lots of food. Another favorite is the Chinet Classic White platters. They are large and sturdy. The platters were perfect for my buffalo wings and Chicken Bacon Ranch Sliders.


Chinet Cut Crystal cutlery is sturdy and elegant—perfect for entertaining. I always love displaying my utensils in mason jars. You could also use clear cups instead.


Use a bar cart for your drinks and desserts.


Jazz up your cupcakes by using free printable party logos. You simply print, cut, punch out a circle with a 2-inch hole punch, then use tape to attach to lollipop sticks. Don't forget to label all of your football party food using the free printable tent cards.


I hope you enjoyed all of these great football party ideas! Be sure to check out the amazing chicken bacon ranch sliders recipe and download your set of free football party printables below.
