IMG_3941As I am sure you all know by now, the LK girls love any excuse to throw a party, so hosting a game day get-together is right up our alley! What could be more fun than getting the gang together & watching the big game on Sunday? Whether it’s your favorite team or your favorite sport, sometimes it’s just fun to hang out with friends, eat good food, and spend all morning trash talking 😉

Today we are sharing our favorite entertaining tips on how to make the right call & host a hassle-free game day party you and your friends will love!

digiorno 1No one wants to spend time in the kitchen making snack stadiums when you can be out in the living room watching your favorite team, am I right? One of the best parts of game day hangouts is the food & we’ve got to knock your party out of the park!

When it comes to hosting at my house, I am a huge fan of delicious food that impresses my guests without spending a ton of time in the kitchen. That’s why DIGIORNO’s Original Rising Crust pizza is my game day secret! It’s like a play that works every time & the fresh-baked taste can’t be beat. I might not fully understand everything about football, but I know that I am always making the right call when I serve DIGIORNO’s up hot.IMG_3909

One of my favorite parts of hosting a get-together is adding in fun decorative elements – because, why not?! A quick an easy way to dress up your living room in true game day spirit, is with a kraft paper tablecloth. It’s wildly simple, makes a fun impact, and it keeps your table from unfortunate food fumbles.

Grab a roll of kraft paper at your local craft store & a jar of cheap white acrylic paint (or white duct tape works well, too!) and you are halfway there. Roll out the paper on your coffee table & wrap the ends like a present, folding over the ends and securing with tape. Paint laces down the middle & stripes on either end & voila – the most adorable football table runner. See – easy, adorable, and it’s mess free!
IMG_4136You’ve got the perfect game day food, your table is festively set, now it’s time to figure out your field play – and by that I mean the layout of the room! Swing that sofa around or bring in some extra chairs so there is room for everyone.

Plus, if your guests are anything like mine, it’s partially about the game & mainly about the food. Nothing says “come & hang out a while,” like comfy chairs and easy access to the snack table. For get-togethers like these, I re-arrange my room to make the TV & the (now fabulous football themed) coffee table the center of attention. Everyone can mingle, hang out, and trash talk the opposing team, and everyone is included.
IMG_4133Whether you are rooting for the home team this Sunday or just riding along on the bandwagon, a game day get-together is a great way to get the gang together & celebrate a good time. So grab some DIGIORNO’s Original Rising Crust pizza, invite the gang over, and host a game day celebration at your place this weekend. Hanging out with friends is always the right call, so why not get the party started!
