Game Day Tablescape with Here Today!

By Guest Blogger Carrie from Curly Crafty Mom
 
I am excited to share another Here Today post with all of you today! I recently went into Here Today to look for some decorations, snacks and appetizers for a Game Day party table! And, this is what I came up with… everything you see here is from Here Today, except the pom pom garland. Here Today is a discount store that has everything at lower prices and it is perfect for your Big Game Day party, because they have snacks, appetizers, decorations and even beer at low prices!

I talk about this more below when I summarize my actual shopping trip at Here Today, but they sell bottles of beer by the six pack! It was so fun to select personal beers that I knew my friends would enjoy! I even grabbed a couple beers that were new to me. If you just want to buy one kind of a particular beer, you can buy it by the six pack, too. You’ll also spot a bottle of wine that I got for us lady folks that prefer wine over beer.

Here Today even carries nuts, pretzels and all kinds of other snack foods!

ccm4

I decided to place some of the snacks in lunch size paper bags that I got at Here Today, too! Its a fun way to display the food for Game Day and less to clean up afterwards!

This dip trio stand I found at the store, too! I have been wanting one of these for awhile and it was only $9.99! I decided to put nacho cheese sauce (for the pretzel bites), meat sauce (for the ravioli) and ranch (for the chips) in it. It worked out perfectly!

For appetizers, I purchased pretzel dog bites (these were OH so good!), fried ravioli and soft pretzel bites. These were all easy to prepare and I displayed them on this massive football serving tray that I found in the ‘Game On’ section of Here Today. If you need pizzas or desserts, Here Today has those, too!

I decorated the table with a green table cloth and white crepe paper that I purchased from Here Today. I got out numbers from white paper, too!

Here Today is definitely a great place to do your Game Day party shopping!

Now, I am going to share my in-store shopping experience with you!

Here Today is broken up into sections and I thought I would hit the ‘Cheers’ section first.

When I think of the Big Game, I think of beer… Now, I am not a huge beer drinker, but I do like one from time to time. And, beer and football just make a perfect harmony. I was talking to the helpful manager at Here Today and she mentioned that you can pick out 6 bottles of beer and make your own 6 pack! I just love this idea! And, isn’t the football platter that is laying in the cart behind the 6 pack the cutest?

I thought this one sounded really good.

They had an entire shelf of different beers for you to select from! And, on the longer sides of the shelf you can buy an entire 6 pack of the beer if you prefer that over choosing 6 different beers.

After selecting beer (and I got a bottle of wine) for the Game Day tablescape I was planning, I decided to look around in Here Today’s Game On section of the store.

They have a lot of sports items in this area, including Mizzou, Blues and Cardinals gear! Perfect for any sporting event you need merchandise for at a low price.

ccm17

They also have a party supply area and this is where I grabbed the table cloth and white steamer for decorating the table.

The last items I needed were some munchies for the party. I found an assortment of chips in all kinds of bold flavors, such as Peppered Bacon!

I then browsed their freezer section and picked up some mini franks in a blanket, fried raviolis with meat sauce (a St. Louis tradition) and pretzel bites.

Here is the top of my cart at the end of the shopping trip!

And, the bottom of my cart! I am going to use the 3 bowl stand for dips such as ranch (for chips), cheese sauce (for the pretzels) and the meat sauce (for the raviolis).

I hope you enjoyed reading about my fourth shopping trip at Here Today. I will be sharing another post with Here Today with a Spring theme in May, so stay tuned! This store is a great place to shop for groceries, candy, storage items, clothes, home decor, holiday items, sports merchandise, etc. at low prices.

Pick up the items shown above & stop by Here Today soon as they could be gone tomorrow. Read Curly Crafty Mom’s full article here.
