All the delicious and amazing football snacks. Seriously, if you aren’t eating the entire time while you’re watching a football game, you’re tailgating entirely wrong.

How to Host an Epic Football Tailgating Party

Before I share with you how to make this Atlanta Falcons chow mix, let me share with you some tips on how you can host an epic football tailgating party. Tailgating parties can happen anywhere! All you need is just a little bit of planning to make it happen.

Falcons Game Day Snack Ideas

Set Up Your House

When it comes to football, go big or go home. Pull out all the stops to get your house tailgate ready. Add chairs, tables, fun football decor…anything that you want to make it more festive, do it! Create a flow to your house that allows for the focus to be on the main event, the football game.

Make sure snacks and games are in a separate room so they don’t disturb the guests watching the game.

Purchase Paper Plates and Cups

Let’s be realistic here…if you don’t want to spend the next several hours or days cleaning up the tailgate party aftermath, opt for paper plates and cups instead. Anything that you can purchase that is easy to handle and clean up should be on your radar!


Don’t forget the trash cans!

Set trash cans around your house so that all your football friends can help out a bit by taking care of their own messes. The more they clean up, the less you’ll have to do later!

Make Your Own Football Decorations

Feeling a bit crafty? Channel your inner creativity and make your own homemade football decoration! When you get a big group of family and friends together, it’s normal to have a little rivalry going on. Keep your party from getting crazy by decorating for both teams. Print footballs with each team’s name and strung from the corners make great game day decorations for everyone.

Have Options for People Who Don’t Care to Watch the Football Game

Some people aren’t as into watching the big game as much as others. In fact, many just like the parties for the food (totally understandable, right?!)  Have things for them to do as well such as board games, cards, and maybe even some plastic cups for a good old game of beer pong.

A Perfect Red, White, and Black Football Themed Party Snack

Enjoying any football game isn’t quite the same if you don’t have party food. Some great game food includes wings, chips, dip, meatballs, and any other finger food trays. But…every good party needs a sweet treat as well! This Atlanta Falcons Game Day Snack Mix is an awesome addition to any tailgating party!
