Big Game Party Prep with Target

I’m not just looking forward to the big game because I’m a huge Swiftie. I just love the combination of football and food, and creating a winning super bowl spread is always so much fun! This year I’m thrilled to be partnering with Target to give you some great ideas for an easy + affordable game day party.

How about tacos with a twist this game day?

Target rolled out three-budget friendly game day menu must-haves this year, all for under $25. We’ll start with my favorite – a cheeseburger taco board that combines the best of two worlds. Cheeseburgers and tacos – need I say more? Just build your board with all the fixings – seasoned ground beef, cheese, lettuce, tortillas, and of course, a special sauce. Of course, you gotta have wings for your football watch party and Target pulled together everything you need to make a winning wing basket that still comes in under budget. Or, opt for a nacho bar to let your guests choose their toppings and go to town. For each of these menu must-haves, you can snag everything you need for under $25 at Target.

Build a better board for football snacking

So what IS the trick to building a better board, whether it be cheeseburger taco style or charcuterie? I love using Target’s Good & Gather line because the snack items are all unique, delicious, great quality and budget friendly. You can bring a fabulous board together for $20 using Target’s Good & Gather line, or, just fill out your menu with their selection of dips, chips, crackers, popcorn and more. Oh, and Target’s owned brand, Threshold has a TON of stylish platters and boards that will become entertaining staples you’ll use again and again.

Outside the box beverages

Of course, we can’t forget about the drinks! If you’re keeping the dry or damp January trend going, Target has some great non-alcoholic options. I’m currently obsessed with Athletic Brewing Company and Lagunitas for non-alcoholic bevvys that are as crisp and refreshing as traditional beer, and don’t even get me started on the zippy and delicious Good & Gather sparkling water – the Cherry Cola flavor is a game-changer!

Budget bites + beverages are easier with a one-stop shop

Sticking to your budget can be a tricky part of hosting, but I find it’s SO much easier when you are getting everything at a one-stop shop. Target has everything you need in one place, making it simple to shop without bouncing around to multiple stores and risking those impulse buys that can blow your budget. Plus, as a busy mom, Target’s same-day Drive Up and delivery options SAVE ME weekly. You can have your items delivered to your trunk in minutes or at your doorstep in as little as one hour. Both options are fast, convenient, and don’t require getting the whole family in and out of the car. MOM WIN!
