So often we miss  out on the joy of community with others by believing parties and gatherings have to be expensive and completely from scratch.

I want to change your mind and show you how to use inexpensive items from the dollar store for decorations and party food from your local Walmart. You can throw a wonderful party to celebrate the Big Game without slaving so much you don’t enjoy the game and your guests!

I cannot tell a lie. I love chocolate and no party is complete without it so I also picked up some ButterFinger® Peanut Butter Cups Minis to use for the amazing recipe to follow. (Seriously? ButterFingers® and peanut butter cups combined? How can you lose?)

I also shopped my local dollar store and started picking up supplies that would go with my football themed party. I went with red and blue, colors that I will be able to use again.

One of my dollar stores favorites is plastic baskets and tubs. I’ve even used them for storage in my small bathroom.

Here they hold ice, drinks, chips, silverware and napkins.

I also grabbed a bunch of nerf footballs and a couple of party trays.

I set out permanent markers for guests to write on the kraft paper and make predictions of the final score. 

If you have kids at your party give them some crayons and let them color away!

For the main dish I simply cooked the lasagna according to the instructions and sliced it for my bread machine focaccia bread sandwiches . You could also use store bought bread to make it easier for yourself.

This is a great way to feed a crowd and give them some hearty munchies!

I cooked the STOUFFER’S® Party Size Macaroni & Cheese along with the lasagna and served it in a white dish. You can’t go wrong with white serving pieces!

Want a fun addition? Use glass bottles of orange and cream sodas! We never buy glass but it’s such a terrific treat for a sports theme party.
