Football Party Ideas

Football season is in full-swing and that means a lot of parties and more stadium food than you can eat. I've been to my share of game-day viewing parties and while they're fun, they're not really my style... So, for those of you out there who like to jazz things up a little, this party is for you. Instead of neon green turf and team insignia, think bright lights, vintage touches, and a simple color pallet.

For my party's food, I went with a crowd pleaser for my main dish- Red Baron Brick Oven Pepperoni Pizza and Red Baron Classic Crust Special Deluxe Pizza, which offer crust perfection in every bite! Red Baron not only saves time in the kitchen, but they make your big game parties really shine! For my sides and dessert I served an Edwards Frozen Pie, sweet potato fries, and a homemade pineapple-ranch dipping sauce for the pizza and fries (recipe below). Then the drinks were served in some reusable bottles that I wrapped with card stock to make them look like footballs.

I kept my decor simple and classic with a black and white backdrop, pompoms, a "win" marquee sign, pennant banner in classic colors, and then a black table cloth. I added a little extra football touch by using a chalk-pen and writing on my black (plastic and disposable) tablecloth. The idea was to make it look like what you'd find on a play board while also being informative on what was being served.

To make the Pineapple-Ranch Dipping Sauce you will need:

1 cup Plain Greek Yogurt
2/3 cup Mayo
2 tbsp fresh Dill
1 can Pineapple Chunks

Directions:
Drain the pineapple of all the excess juice. In a blender or food processor, mix all of the ingredients until well-blended. Keep the dip refrigerated until you're ready to serve.

This football party idea offers something for everyone and will have your guests leaving with satisfied bellies, thanks to Red Baron pizza!
