Happy January friends! Football playoffs are in full swing and Game Day parties are too.
You all know how much I love entertaining and believe it or not, sports are the main reason I have guests over. Just this past weekend, I had my parents over to watch the playoffs AND hockey. Go Sports!
But seriously, I will use any event as a reason to have people over and Game Day is one of the best reasons.
This year, grab your friends and get together to watch the BIG GAME because we’ve got you covered! We have 12 bloggers sharing their favorite game day snacks, meals, and desserts, plus printables and decorating ideas for your party!
All you and your guests need to do is bring your appetites – this game day party plan takes care of all of the planning.
(In case you’re wondering, we’ll be doing this with a different theme each month, so be sure to check them all out…hint – Valentine’s Day is up next!)
Honey Soy Chicken Wings from Sweet C’s
