Get ready for the big game with a fun (and delicious!) tailgate party! Printable party decor and easy tailgating foods make a simple spread that will definitely impress your guests!
Tailgating is a great way to make an ordinary game even more fun! We have a long-standing tradition of watching certain games with family and friends, and it’s something we look forward to every year!
How to Plan a Tailgate Party
One of my favorite things about tailgating is that you can keep things simple or go as fancy as you’d like with the food! For a random weeknight game, we might cook some simple sliders or meatballs, serve veggies with ranch dip and call it good.
When we are hosting friends for a championship game or a big rivalry, we definitely step up our game! Here’s how to make your next tailgate party a smashing success!
Easy Tailgating Party Food Ideas
The best way to keep things simple for a tailgate party is to buy DELICIOUS foods that are already prepared. This way all you have to do is set it out in a fun arrangement and call it good!
My local Albertsons store has a variety of delicious and convenient snacks and treats. They do all the hard work for me, so I can just relax and enjoy the game!
They have all the game-day foods you could want; Buffalo chicken wings, prepared deli salads, cupcakes, brownies, chocolate chip cookies, and fresh-cut produce. And if you want things to be even easier, Albertson’s has options like Grocery Delivery and DriveUp & Go™ that totally save on time!
I shopped at Albertsons in my local area, but you can also find quality foods and ingredients at the Albertsons Companies family of stores, including Safeway, ACME Markets, Jewel-Osco, Vons, Randalls, Shaw’s Supermarket, Star Market, Tom Thumb, and Vons.
Create an Appetizing Arrangement
Lay out everything your guests will need so that it’s easy to walk thru the line and fill their plates. Don’t forget paper goods and utensils!
Make it Festive
Just because you’re not doing all of the cooking yourself doesn’t mean that you can’t take all of the credit for a gorgeous tailgating spread! I love buying chicken wings and potato salad from the Albertsons deli and then I’ll serve them in coordinating bowls or on white platters.
An easy way to dress up your tailgate party food table is with some cute food labels, utensil wrappers, cupcake toppers, and a printable banner.
Painting white “laces” on brown paper bags is a fun way to serve chips, candies, and other treats! It takes just a few minutes to do, but these bags looks so cute, don’t they?
