No doubt this year's biggest football game is going to be an epic one. If you're watching from home, you'll want to make sure your party turns out equally as epic.

To strategize your party plan, we'd recommend breaking up the day into three main phases: The setup, the spread (aka, the food) and the after-party cleanup. By doing so, you'll make sure you've purchased every party supply needed (including napkins for messy finger foods!) to throw a successful game day party.
