Game Get Together


This is a pretty easy one…it’s red, black and white (cuz those are the colors on cards, of course). And the food is all finger food and snacks so no one needs to manipulate silverware and game pieces.

I love the idea of these giant cards…I would put one on the front door or front lawn

and use them as a backdrop on the food stations. You could even cut the face out of the king and queen and use that as your Instagram opportunity.

Add a few of these balloons and your look is complete!

The Games

Everyone has their favorites, but there are some things you’ll want to consider:

  • How many people are coming? If it’s a good sized group, you’ll need to think of the timing and to divide them into teams
  • How many games do you want to play? And how much time on each?
  • Games like Pictionary, Trivial Pursuit and Charades have been around for awhile, work well for groups and will be familiar.
  • You may want to print up a quick and easy rule sheet so there isn’t a lot of time spent going over the rules
  • If you’re going to set up the play in your living room, choose games that are less active.
  • Think about a prize for the winning team to spur on competition.

Food and Drink

I would set up one area with dry snacks already portioned in these cute mini popcorn boxes:

  • Popcorn
  • Pretzels
  • Flavored chips
  • Nuts
  • Trail mix

The next area ( or it could be put out after an hour) could be easy to eat mini sliders (different types) and cold veggies in a cup and fruit skewers. You get the idea. No need to be complicated -especially if you want to join in the fun and games. And be creative!

And For Dessert:

Bite size cupcakes and a few bowls of red and black candy.


Go paper…it’s so much easier.

Good Luck!
