Football Parties mean Game Time Fun!

A football party is the prefect time to bring family and friends together with lots of team spirit and camaraderie. As with any party planning ahead is a good idea to get colorful decorations to set the mood and good food to satisfy the guest. Let's start with decorations which can be as elaborate or as simple as you choose. To go out and really WOW your guest search the web sites of local party stores to see if they carry a line of party supplies with your teams logo and colors. If you can not find what you are looking for or want more search the teams web site and place an order...just make sure the purchases will be delivered in time. If all this shopping it to much or to expensive consider purchasing plates, napkins, plastic table clothes, balloons, and streamers in the team colors and let your imagination do the rest. Don't forget outside. To make your house stand out to first time visitors tie balloons in the team colors to your mail box or a tree. That takes care of the decorations, now for the food.

Cool Ham, Cream Cheese and Pickle Wrap

This cool warp is so easy to fix earlier in the day and placed in a container with a tight lid until kick off:

  • All you need is 1 pound of Boar's Head ham-slicked not real thin. The amount of ham you purchase depends on the crowd you expect. Each ham log makes 3 bite size pieces. A pound will feed 12 to 15 hungry fans easily.
  • 1 8oz container of Temptee Cream Cheese or any good grade of cream cheese
  • 1 jar dill pickle spears-slice each pickle down the center

All you do is evenly spread the cream cheese on the ham. Place the pickle slice at one end and roll tightly. Cut each "log" in to 3 even pieces and secure with a tooth pick. Wallah! A cool tidbit to complement the Cheese and Sausage Dip.

Hot Sausage Cheese Dip

No football party would be complete with out a great dip. Here is one that is sure to please and can be made earlier in the day, after all who wants to be stuck in the kitchen and miss kickoff? All you need is:

  • 2 rolls of sausage. I use Jimmy Dean but you can use our favorite
  • 1 can Rotel original tomatoes
  • 1 8oz. package of cream cheese
  • 1 box of Velveeta Mexican Flavored Cheese

Brown the sausage ( don't drain) lower the heat some then add the tomatoes. Stir until well mixed and add the cheeses. Stir until melted. That is it. Serve with nachos or any chip good for dipping.

Now for Something Sweet

For a really cute end to the party, make your favorite cup cake recipe and divide the batter in half placing each half in a small bowl. Using standard food dye color each half with one of your teams color and bake. Like wise dye white icing with the team colors frosting half with each color. Now get creative by writing your teams initials on each cup cake or topping then off with a small foot ball or other favor available at any party store.

My garnet and gold cup cakes were a big hit!
