We happen to be huge football and basketball fans in our house, especially when it comes to the Packers and the Badgers. Naturally, we have some great game day party ideas for cheering on our teams each year!
Game Day Party Ideas – Essentials
Getting ready for game day means being prepared in advance. You are going to have lots of hungry, thirsty, and excited fans in your home, so be prepared to feed them, quench their thirst, and give them all the tools they need to cheer on their favorite team!
Have cocktails ready, or at least grab yourself a guide on how to make cocktails if you’ve never done so before. Also, a large beverage tub is an easy way to have cold drinks ready to go, and it is easy to refill throughout the day.

Enjoying Game Day!
When the big game finally arrives, here is what I love!

grabbing some Tostitos,
eating some fancy cupcakes that I may or may not have baked and decorated myself,
then sitting back and enjoying as my favorite team whoops some butt!
