    I don’t pretend to be a football fan, but I just so happened to marry a man who lived and breathed football for the first decade of our marriage. Now I’m a mom of boys who love the game just as much as their dad.

    While I never learned to go bananas for game day, I did fall in love with creating themed meals for my family while they watch the games.

    There was a big college game this weekend so I made concession style food to serve during game time. I chose hot dogs, pizza poppers and flavored popcorn using Orville Redenbacher® because these are things they’d find at the ballpark and they’re all easy to make.

    I’ll show you how I created a super simple popcorn bar style concession stand over the weekend.

    Popcorn Bar

    For the popcorn bar, I wanted something more than just regular popcorn so I bought Orville Redenbacher® movie theater butter 6 count classic bags. Instead of only serving them as is, I created two distinct seasonings to add an extra layer of flavor to everyone’s popcorn.

    For the game time meal, I served hot dogs and pizza bites just like you’d find at a concession stand.

    Backdrop

    I always like to create a focal point behind my party table. This one was created using a black vinyl table cover with the words Game Day on it. 

    I finished off the look with a referee-themed banner that’s very simple to make using striped napkins. A goal post was used to finish off the look.

    Table covering

    I gave the table a football field theme using a green table runner and white tape to create faux yard lines.

    I loved how incorporating Orville Redenbacher® popcorn let me offer layers of flavor in a simple this menu. I will definitely be using it again on game day.

    You can find the foods I used, including Orville Redenbacher® movie theater butter popcorn at Walmart.
