Game Day Tips from Dollar General!

January 05, 2017
Be the next game day MVP by hosting a party that’s sure to score a touchdown with your family and friends. Dollar General has simple and affordable party-planning tips to help make your game day party the best one of the season.

Decorate the party space with team colors by using football-inspired tablecloths, disposable paper products and posters. Get the kids involved by crafting foam fingers or create a garland to hang around the rooms by cutting footballs out of construction paper and stringing them to green yarn.

Create a game day buffet by lining up finger food favorites like wings, chips and dip and small sandwiches. Find additional easy and affordable recipes, like the Cheesy Football recipe below, online at Dollar General Easy Meals at
