Football season is here, and I don’t know about you but I’m more interested in the snacks rather than the game. So when I had the opportunity to partner with Pillsbury to build a Snackadium using their crescent rolls & pizza dough, I was totally in!
Thus I began my mission: throwing the ultimate football party with copious amounts of snacks, dips, brown butter cookies, meatballs, wings and just about anything you can think of.
Now you’re probably wondering what I did to create this ultimate party, and it’s simple really: I built a snackdium (football stadium made out of food) on top of my pool table. Obviously the best thing to known to men who love food.
I’m not kidding. Building stuff + food + football + brown butter cookies = a man’s favorite thing. Promise.
Now I didn’t think that building an actual stadium full of food would be easy access, so instead I made a buffet style football field.
Do you see how excited these people are?! They are thinking of buffalo chicken wings, Chex mix, and Pillsbury Cresent Rolls. They are going to dream about chips and guacamole and pretzels stuffed with cheese all night long.
Because really, who can even think about football when you can put together something this awesome? Check it out:
We started by rolling out green paper cloth over the pool table and used white tape to make the football field lines. For the fan stands we cut styrofoam and wrapped it in foil. There’s also an awesome goal post, which is made out of paper towel tubes colored with construction paper. This was all completely easy and can be set up on any table!
By the way don’t forget to check out the awesome pig and potted plants in the background behind the goal post. I think we were going for a tropical theme… you know with wintery pine trees.
That was a joke so laugh!
Anyway after our initial set up was complete, we started adding snacks and delicious little fans made out of cheese, olives, and pickles.
I kept eating the fans who were supposed to represent the Packers and Vikings. They looked tasty.
Now a party wouldn’t really be a party without some Pillsbury Crescent Dogs!
…And a super lazy dog in the background. She’s on a diet.
Oh and I can’t forget the Beer-Cheese Stuffed Preztels made with Pillsbury Pizza Dough! They smelt like a ballpark; I kept wanted to stick my head in the oven and inhale the fresh dough baking! The best part? They were so easy to make!
For our dipping pleasure, we served a warm blue cheese dip with bacon. It was incredible!

For the main courses, we made sandwiches with deli meat, a variety of cheeses, and spreads. Although you could have a ‘make your own sandwich’ station too!
The sandwiches were placed on top of the styrofoam and stacked for easy grabbing access!
Oh and obviously to throw the ultimate football party, you need buffalo wings! My godfather has a secret recipe that everyone always devours! They are INCREDIBLE!
