The big game is coming up, which means we will be watching the game with friends!  I love throwing a party, but sometimes the prep and cleanup can be overwhelming.  Well, this year I am prepping as much as I can ahead of time and using my crock pot to help with the rest.  I’ll be making crock pot buffalo chicken dip, chicken dippers and mini corndogs, but for all of the snacks, I have found a new way to keep me from scrambling around last minute!  Let me share a couple of new fun tips I have for throwing a party…

Get things ready for your game day party ahead of time with Rubbermaid and SharpieI am using some fabulous Rubbermaid containers to get all of my snacks ready ahead of time.  I can fill them up, place lids on them and pull them out right before the party begins.  I LOVE THIS!  I mean, who wants to scramble around as your guests are showing up trying to get all of the chips and snacks out?  You can’t do it too far ahead of schedule because you don’t want your chips to go stale.  So…this is my new go to…get em ready early, then simply take the lids off at the last minute…booya!

Use sharpies to make a fun bannerTo keep your guests from guessing what’s in the crock pots, make an easy banner with some paper, washi tape and Sharpie markers.  I used ours to let our guests know exactly what was in each pot, and secured the banner to two dow rods stuck in styrofoam blocks…super easy!

Place game day snacks in Rubbermaid containers for easy cleanupSpread your containers out around the edges of the table so your guests can walk around and easily grab a handful of whatever they like.

Guess the final score of the big gameFor an extra fun touch, lay down some craft paper and make game day a little more fun. We will be laying out some Sharpie markers and asking our guests to guess the score of the game and the winner gets to take home a football…fun, right?
