Score With These Game Day Party and Food Ideas


Football season is winding down, and watching the biggest game of the year is always more fun with friends. Whether everyone is cheering for the same team or you have a house divided, we have a few winning game day party ideas (even if your team doesn’t throw a winning pass).


Tip No. 1: Choose the right TV.

No game-day watch party is complete without the right television set-up. That’s why you need the LG 70-inch LED 4K UHD TV. It’s packed with features that will please casual and die-hard fans alike. A few reasons we love it:

  • Ultra High Definition cinema screen that provides a clear and detailed image, so you won’t miss a single detail of the game.
  •  TruMotion 120HZ reduces blur and yields crisper details, making it easy to catch every move the players make.
  • The Magic Remote puts the game in the palm of your hand with easy navigation and the ability to control all your connected devices.

With a lifelike picture, deep contrasts, and refined motion, every seat is the best one in the house. Your guests will flip for the awesome picture, and you don’t have to empty your pockets to take it home. As always, Rent-A-Center has flexible payment options all without credit, so the perfect TV is within reach.


Tip No. 2: DIY your décor.

You don’t have to spend a lot to make your space football festive. Create a bright backdrop and add your team colors to your décor by tying strips of crepe paper to a shower curtain rod or tension rod that can be hung in any doorway or opening.

Dress up a plain, green tablecloth by drawing football plays (you know — the X’s, arrows, and O’s) with a black permanent marker. Then put out some “penalty flags” in the form of yellow and red napkins. Not only will guests need them while they eat, but they’ll love tossing them around during tense moments in the game. Finally, use white electrical tape to add football laces to your cups. Brown paper cups or clear glasses filled with your favorite cola work best to create this fun, practical party décor.


Tip No. 3: Serve the right snacks.

Last, but certainly not least, are the snacks. No football party is complete without a tasty spread. When picking party fare, consider that guests will be moving from table to the couch. Black bean enchiladas, mini pizzas, and bacon-wrapped stuffed jalapeño poppers never disappoint.

Crescent dogs are another great choice and put a twist on a classic game-day favorite. Slice your hot dogs down the middle, stuff them with cheese, wrap them in crescent dough, bake at 375 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes, and voila!

Follow that same theme and create a game-day trail mix by combining your favorite types of frozen fries (like seasoned and crispy, crinkle cut, or shoestring) and serving them in brown paper bags. You can even use some of that white electrical tape to add football laces to your paper bags, creating a portable and decorative way for your guests to munch.

Once you have the TV, decorations, and snacks, the only thing left to do is invite your favorite football fans and get the party started.
