We are huge football fans in our household. Every Saturday we watch college football and Sundays we basically stay home and watch football all day. A lot of the times we have our friends and family over. I don't consider myself the best host because I am still learning as I go. I have learned a few tips that had made our game days more successful. 

1. Paper Plates & Napkins- These are a must for any party. Otherwise your dishes will pile up and I know I am not washing them. Paper plates and napkins are so convenient. Once your guest is done eating they can just throw it away and done! 

2. Finger Foods- I have learned that buying finger foods is easiest to keep a group of people happy. Games are long and commercial breaks are always food breaks for us. Cheese trays, fruit, chips, dip, guacamole, wings and meatballs are a few of our favorites. 

3. Stock up on Drinks- Sparkling Ice are a favorite to purchase for game days. We keep the Sparkling Ice Pink Variety pack on hand. They come in a 12 pack of Black Cherry, Peach Nectarine, Coconut Pineapple & Pink Grapefruit. I love that Sparking Ice has natural colors and flavors, vitamins and antioxidants, and zero sugar! You can find Sparkling Ice Pink Variety pack near you here

4. Have everyone bring something- Potlucks are always a smart idea. You don't have to stress about providing all the food. There will be plenty of food this way! 

5. A Cozy Sitting Area to watch the Game- We love to clear up our sitting area. If it's a cold day we like to keep throw blankets and pillow nearby. Games are long and feeling comfortable is key.
