There’s one chance to make a first impression. As guests arrive, wow them with little touches that make a big impact. Turn the food table into a football field complete with pompoms, penalty flags and banners. DIY food cards and personalized drink koozies will break the ice and set the tone for a memorable night of pigskin. Think outside the chip bowl with warm snacks that get folks talking, like Easy Lasagna Roll-Ups made with <a href=”https://farmrich.com/recipe/mozzarella-sticks/” target=”_blank” rel=”nofollow noopener”>Mozzarella Sticks</a> from <a href=”https://farmrich.com/recipe/mini-mozz-stick-lasagna-roll-ups/” target=”_blank” rel=”nofollow noopener”>Coffee &amp; Crayons</a>.
