So you’ve picked up Tyson® Any’tizers® snacks and Tyson® Crispy Chicken Strips, 7UP®, A&W® Root Beer, Canada Dry® and Sunkist® Soda at Target to make hosting your party a breeze, now you need to make sure you don’t spend a ton of time in the kitchen cleaning up after your hungry football fans.
Since the host of the party often spends more time in the kitchen than at the actual party we want to make sure you save yourself the time of cleaning dishes by giving you some creative ideas for using paper and plastic plates, cups and napkins. You deserve to enjoy your party too!
Not only are plastic and paper products convenient but you can find them in a variety of colors to fit any theme. Plus, you can also customize them just like we did here with these “referee” style serving cups.
Buy bright yellow napkins (just like those penalty flags the refs throw) and add them to a bucket. Add a “Penalty Flags” sign to add a fun football theme.
You can continue adding a referee theme to your party by adhering white tape onto disposable black cups so they resemble referee uniforms.
To make serving super easy, add a serving portion of the Tyson® Any’tizers® Chicken Fries to the cups. Your friends and family can grab a cup to eat while watching the game. I chose to dress them up a little bit more by adding clothespins with football sayings and icons at the top. I’m all about fun and easy ways to dress up a party!
For even more disposable dishes I used plastic cups for all the dips that compliment the Tyson® Any’tizers® Chicken Fries.
Looking for dip ideas to compliment your Tyson® Any’tizers®? Try the following:
- French Onion
- Sour Cream
- Honey Mustard
- Barbecue Sauce
Here’s a recipe for Homemade BBQ Sauce that your guests will surely love:
- 1 cup Ketchup
- 2/3 cup Brown Sugar
- 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
- 1 teaspoon Mustard
- 1 Tablespoon Onion Powder
- 1/2 teaspoon Pepper
Mix all of ingredients together in one bowl and add to a large bowl or individual serving cups to easy dipping. Dip and enjoy!
I love how the easy addition of the white tape and clothespins with stickers give the party an extra punch without a ton of work.
Follow these steps and you can throw a football party worthy of the biggest football fans! My table includes the Tyson® Any’tizers® Chicken Fries and dips, Tyson® Any’tizers® Wingz, BBQ Chicken Sliders featuring Tyson® Any’tizers® Boneless Chicken Wyngz, 7UP®, A&W® Root Beer, and Canada Dry®, pretzels and chips.
Still in need of food for the big game? Make a quick stop at Target where they are offering a FREE 2-Liter of 7UP®, A&W® Root Beer, Canada Dry® OR Sunkist® Soda when you buy any TWO (2) Tyson® Any’tizers® snacks or Tyson® Crispy Chicken Strips. Go team!
