NFL Kickoff season is just 3 days away and we are ready to celebrate the NFL Kickoff season. There are a couple of things about the NFL season that makes me so happy, families and friends getting together to watch their favorite teams play, and of course the food. I love hosting parties at my home even though, I have a small place. I still love it.

Now you’re probably asking yourself, “Isn’t Jasmine a New York Giants fan?” And yes I am. I will never give up on my native team.

My fiance and along with the majority of our friends and his family is a Green Bay Packers fan. So hosting an NFL Kickoff season is just another excuse for me to host a party for the Green Bay Packers fans and make delicious food. Below you’ll find some tips and items you must have in order to host an NFL Kickoff Party.

Food + Drinks:

Always important to have food when hosting an NFL Kickoff party. Chicken wings are always a preference when it comes to NFL parties. Tip: Toss a few wings and toss them with your flavored preference seasoning in the crockpot in the morning and it’ll be ready once people start arriving. Another tip: if you want to add a little crispiness to the chicken wings, place them in the oven for a few minutes. Bam, you got yourself crispy chicken wings.

  • Appetizers: You want to stick with easy dips or the safe choice chips with queso and/or salsa.
  • Side Choices: potato wedges, jalapeño poppers, potato skins,
  • Main Course: Chicken wings, Ham & Cheese sliders or Pizza
  • Additional options: carrots or celery sticks are great options too


It’s not a party without some awesome decorations. Now I’m not saying you have to go all out but you can get a few items like football related tablecloth and banners.

Eating Utensils:

You can pretty much find football-related bowls, cups, and popcorn box. The football popcorn box is perfect for kids to eat out of when it comes to chips or popcorn. Our favorites are the officially licensed NFL Green Bay Packers napkins, plates, and dip bowls.


Who here doesn’t love dessert? If you answered “me” to that question, then you can’t come to my party because dessert is a must-have item at my party. Anyone who comes to my party has to love dessert, especially because the officially licensed NFL Green Bay Packers cake is the perfect dessert to have at an NFL Kickoff party. It’s a great way to showcase your favorite team. You can find these are your local bakery or to find the nearest location to you.  They are so delicious. We loved eating it.

Now tell me, are you going to be hosting an NFL Kickoff party?
