Final sporting events like the Grey Cup, Super Bowl and Stanley Cup playoffs are a great excuse to get together with friends, throw a party and eat some great food!
Every year, we have a Grey Cup party AND a Super Bowl party at my parent’s place. Of course, out of the 7 adults and 5 kids, there are really only 3 that come to the parties for the game. The rest of us are there for the food and fun!
Here are 5 things you need to have a successful Grey Cup or Super Bowl Party:
Food ~ Obviously this is a no brainer. Especially if your group contains men or kids. The food you serve can depend on the taste buds and location of your party. Many people think chips and dip. But you can add a little bit of healthy with a veggie platter.
The Rubbermaid Party Platter is the perfect vessel to carry your veggie platter to the party location.
The large divded base keeps different types of food separated, while a smaller leak-proof inner container holds the dip and nests snuggly into the base. Each container comes with a secure lid that creates a tight seal and allows for safe and easy transportation.
A TV ~ If you are going to watch the “big game”, you will need to have a TV. While you can stream some sporting events via the internet, depending on the quality of your internet or how many other people are streaming, the download speed can be slow, causing the game stall or stop completely.
TV trays ~ Many people do not have a kitchen table sitting in the same room as their largest TV. If this is the case, grab your portable TV trays or ask guests to bring their own. Having a surface for guests to place their plates and cups will prevent people stepping on plates of food.
Games ~ While the majority of people at the party might enjoy watching the game, there will be some that would prefer to do something else. Have a few card games or quiet, short board games for non-game watchers to play.
Quiet activities for the kids ~ colouring pages, or other quiet time activities will keep little ones busy while the adults are trying to list to the game.
Oh and don’t forget Rubbermaid containers with Easy Find Lids to pack up all the leftovers and transport them home easily with no leakage!
Easy Find Lids make organizing your kitchen a lot easier. Featuring lids that snap together and snap to the bottom of the container it fits, this food storage system ensures that the right lid is always at your fingertips. Graduated sized containers nest to take up less room in your cupboard, and its square shape takes up less room in your refrigerator.
