February is jam-packed with events almost more than the holiday season. The Big Game, Mardi Gras, New York Fashion Week and Valentine’s Day. As for me, I’m now looking forward to the Big Game. The Big Game transcends sports. It is an event that showcases the best in food, music, parties, and football.
Want to throw a great Big Game bash next weekend while keeping your family and your friends all happy and healthy? Try some of our tips:
If you are like us, you’ are not a #1 fan of the paper plates and cups that often pop up at parties. Keep trash to a minimum at your get-together by opting for reusable or recyclable dinnerware and flatware. Since we’re believers in recycling, we’ll set up several recycling bins for our guests so that recyclables and plastic can be separated for our local recycling program.
Big Bash Sunday is an excuse to snack excessively. Keep your party low-impact by asking guests to bring a dish. Trying new recipes is part of the game-day experience. Don’t try to do it all yourself. As for myself, I want to try something unexpected to keep nervous tummies satisfied. I’m going to search on Pinterest for ideas. I’ll set up a self-serve station. Dessert will follow with Big Bash sundaes (Sunday) 🙂 and cupcakes.
Make sure you have enough seats. Seating doesn’t have to be in the form of chairs, but make sure you have sofas, ottomans, and stools arranged so guests can see one another to converse and to see the television.
I’m now deciding on what to wear. You know that a woman can shop all of her life, and still have nothing to wear. I do know that my make-up will consist of lots of mascara (always trying new brands), but I love the Lashblast Volume by Covergirl, which can be purchased at Walmart. It’s available in three collections: Volume, Clump Crusher, and Fusion. Covergirl’s biggest brush ever is everything that I expect in a mascara. It’s volumizing, lengthening, and hypoallergenic.
I always wear my jewelry with comfortable casual clothes. I’m very simple when it comes down to fashion for an event like the Big Game. I’m the kind of girl that thinks jewelry will make an outfit.
Everything you need to keep your Game Day traditions going is available at Walmart: Head & Shoulders Classic Clean Shampoo, Venus Swirl Razor by Gillette, Crest 3D White Luxe Professional Effects Whitestrips, and Oral B Vitality Electric Brush,
This Big Game Bash, spoil yourself with exactly what you want and need. Whether you’re shopping for the menu, clothing, or make-up, Walmart has what you need to celebrate this February. Walmart offers lower prices and exclusive products.
You are right the Super Bowl is an excuse to over eat! It is the one day that I do not worry about what I eat. Beforehand spoiling yourself very good idea.
There are three times in the year that I give myself permission to be a total pig – Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the Super Bowl. The Super Bowl is great because I can gorge on super horrible bar food. Yum!

Game day is very calm in our house. We have some game day foods, but besides that it is really chill.
I agree that February is such a busy time of the year. There are so many great occasions! I can’t wait for the Big Game!
February is always a busy month for us. We love Superbowl and eating too many snacks while watching the game!
With Superbowl coming up, expect a lot of eating and a lot of cleaning up too! I don’t worry about cleaning up though, because my kids have promised to take care of that task.
We always have big game day parties. Thanks to your tips, my house will be able to be cleaned after the crazy game day traditions.
So much fun and food for February! I’ve already done my preparations and I can’t wait to get going!
Great tips! I have to admit after prepping for a party and cooking and cleaning and getting the house in order I tend to use the disposable plates because who wants to wash dishes after all that! : /
My family loves Walmart! Everything you need for the big game day is there and you can always find great bargains!
I need to pick up some more swiffer pads so that we can tackle small messes. I don’t know if we are doing anything on game day.

Super Bowl is almost as important as the holidays! Important as in; the house needs to be cleaned for company, a feast needs to be prepared, extra supplies in the event you have stay-overs. It’s definitely a busy time, best to be prepared for anything!
These are great ideas. I can see how a lot of moms are preparing for the big day. We don’t do this, but it looks so fun.
These look like some great products at Walmart to get ready for the big game. I need to get that mascara.
These are some great products. I love P&G products and I love shopping at Walmart. I actually have all of these products as well!
We always pig out on junk food and bad for us appetizers. It’s a tradition at our hose party..
My husband love head and shoulder hair care products. We love P&G products here at home.

We are a Hockey family and we have a few traditions for our big game days. I always make sure i get a lot of snacks for everyone to choose from. We like to take bets before the game and the loser has to do extra chores for the week.
We watch the game but we don’t do it big. I do a festive take on dinner that night and that’s it. The commercials aren’t even that great anymore but I do enjoy half time.
Hahaha I swear that’s all the super bowl is to me anymore…. A time to pig out on all the ridiculousness I normally wouldn’t! Can’t wait until next Sunday!
I’ll be spending the Superbowl binge watching Supernatural 😛
Super Bowl parties are always exciting & it has been one of out family traditions as well at home over the years. We usually come up with some special parties with important family members & friends all around.
