Show Your Colors

  • Make these fun Football JIGGLERS in your team’s colors.
  • Use team colors for napkins, plastic utensils and plates.
  • Wrap place settings with "coach's" whistles or small team pennants.

Get Down to Buffet Business

Football Party Buffet

Let people serve themselves during breaks and halftime with a buffet table.

  • Keep party food warm by placing hot dishes (covered) in a low 200°F oven. Replenish the buffet table as needed.
  • Make simple paper pennants to direct fans to the food. “Pre-Game” or “First Down” could be appetizers, “Half Time” could be entrees and “Third Quarter” is a great time for sweets.

Feeding a Crowd

Italian Stallion Sub

Expecting a crowd? For an easy entree, build an oversize sub or two.

  • Start by cutting a large loaf of Italian bread in half lengthwise, then spread the cut sides with KRAFT Mayo Real Mayonnaise.
  • Layer the bottom half of the bread with your favorite OSCAR MAYER Sliced Meats, KRAFT Cheese Slices and other sandwich toppings; cover with top half of bread.
  • Cut the sandwich into slices before the crowd descends and you can sail smoothly through the party.

Make-Ahead Spread

Easy-Five Mexican Dip

Hot spreads and dips can be assembled, covered and refrigerated up to 2 days in advance.

  • Bake them just before guests arrive so they're hot out of the oven at party time.
  • Note that you may need to increase the baking time by 5 to 10 min. to ensure that the spread is heated through.
