Whether you’re having a small gathering or throwing a huge party, here are some tips to prepare you for your Big Game entertaining:
Serve the Right Snacks.
Having lots of appetizer options will keep your guests satisfied from kick-off to the end of the celebration. Some recipes that are sure to be crowd pleasers (from CookingChannelTV.com & Delish.com) are Skirt Steak Quesadillas, Slow-Cooker Cheese Dip, Chipotle-Lime Chicken Wings, Mini Italian Club Sandwiches and Bacon-Wrapped Jalapenos.

Have Comfortable Seating.
As a host, you want to make sure that every guest feels like they have the best seat in the house to watch the game. Some great options are reclining sofas or for lots of extra seating try a sectional.
Keep the Drinks Flowing.
Nothing goes better with appetizers and football than a nice cold drink. Besides the typical beer and mixed drinks, it’s important to think about non-alcoholic options as well. A fun “mocktail” drink to serve is the Ginger Fizz. See the recipe here.
Be Prepared for Overnight Guests
Sometimes the game goes late or your guests might party a little too hard. Whatever the case, it’s a good idea to have a guest bedroom ready. Make sure they are comfortable with a new mattress.
Plus, buy before Saturday at 9:00 p.m. and you’ll have your furniture in time for the Big Game. Only Gardner-White has “same day” and evening delivery options to make getting ready for game night just a little bit easier.
