Are you ready for the Big Game?

Step by step video instructions for building your own epic Football Snack Stadium #gamedayglory

Because I am!

Noah and I spent last Sunday constructing one of the coolest projects we've done yet; an epic football Snack Stadium. Behold:

Click through and I'll give you all the insane details, as well as a video tutorial showing you how to make your own football Snack Stadium!


Isn't it glorious?

The football field had three of the seven different dips: Sour cream, my paleo-friendly dairy-free guacamole, and TOSTITOS® salsa, with pepperjack cheese sliced thin to make the yard lines.

We even used Skittles® to create this cute penalty and challenge flag bunting for the party decor. Be sure to come back later this week and I'll show you how we made it!  The tutorial to make the bunting is here!

And of course, I was especially proud of our soda can stadium walls:

Want to make your own and be the envy of all other party hosts? Of course you do! This is an incredibly fun and impressive way to display your snacks for the Big Game. I put together a quick video tutorial of how we made ours, have a watch:

Video Tutorial: How to make your own epic Football Snack Stadium!



Want to know what my favorite parts of this project was? All the pieces to construct the stadium are reusable! It's made from bins, dishes and organizers you will actually use in your kitchen again. Frugal and environmentally friendly, my kind of project. 

As you can see from the video above, the stadium 'stands' were made from two different kinds of tiered pantry shelf organizers. The clear ones on the ends actually had a shallow tray built into them (perfect!) and we taped two plastic serving trays on top of the white wire shelf organizers to keep them sturdy. Plus, this means they were slanted just like real stadium seats!

The clear organizers were a little too short, so we propped them up on some scrap styrofoam pieces to make them even with the sides of the baking pan 'field.'

One of the things we had to MacGuyver out was how to keep the dips on the endzones from mixing with the guacamole field. We both hate it when foods get mixed! (I'm that crazy person who doesn't like it when my ice cream touches my cake...). We ended up solving that problem by creating mini 'trays' for each endzone out of another disposable tinfoil baking pan, like this:

See? No pesky mixing!

To prep for our Snack Stadium, we took a trip to Wal Mart to stock up. We also got the tiered shelf organizers and baking pans there too, score!

Side note, you'll need six cases of Pepsi™ to make your stadium walls double stacked, so you'll have plenty of drinks during the Big Game! I also highly recommend building your Pepsi™ walls around your stadium before you fill it with food. You really, really don't want a can to accidentally fall onto your food during construction, trust me.

Along the same lines, it's much easier to put your silverware and napkins in before the food as well.

After your Snack Stadium is fully constructed, you can fill it with snacks of your choice! Since we have a variety of food allergies and different diets to accommodate among our friends and families, we chose to use a variety of healthy snacks, as well as SEVEN (seven!!) different kinds of dips!

We literally had everything from paleo-friendly guacamole, to low-fat home made hummus, salsa and sour cream, spicy bean and queso blanco. We even had an amazing home made Greek-yogurt based fruit dip for those who'd rather have sweet then salty. For dipping we supplied tons of different veggies, fruits, and chips so there were healthy options for everyone. And of course we had to have some treats for dessert! (FYI: dipping SNICKERS® into the fruit dip...amazeballs. MmmMmmm.)
