It's Gameday for America

Election Day 2012 is here and that's a great reason to celebrate with some gameday style.  Change up the team colored food to red, white and blue and you're all set.  Check out this post from the 4th of July for some great patriotic colored yums.


And for a little "party" fun, you can throw back a little Jolly Rancher cocktail...this recipe is for a shot, but you could always top with some club soda or Sprite to transform it into a fizzy cocktail.  You could also make some for your gameday in team colors.

Happy Gameday

Snack on the Stadium

With bowl week upon us, I felt it "important" to re-publish October's Snack Stadiums post.  Snack Stadiums strike me as the uber-appropriate addition to a holiday gameday party.  Whip one up in the next couple weeks or start planning for a Super Bowl Snack Stadium.  Enjoy!


You are going to love this gallery of football stadiums made of  enough food for the entire party.  Holy Taco gives you the instructions to  create this beauty, complete with the dip field.  Click here for the instructions.



Now this is the time I should let you know that there is an entire website  dedicated to these pieces of edible art/architecture/engineering feat.   www.snackadium.com.  I am not making this up!   Here's what you'll see over there:



The Old Try

The regular season is over and it's time to start thinking about the season (aka bowl season).  Don't forget to check out past Gameday Style posts for more great gift ideas.
First up, is The Old Try.  I purchased this print a few months ago for my home that's trying hard to raise two gentlemen...

The Old Try has some Gameday Style in a subtle, fun and classy way.  Subtle, because you may not know what some of these designs are referring to, unless you're a devoted fan of one of these Southern schools.
