Entertain With Ease

Serving up great food is the first step to having a great "Game Day" event, but a few simple set-up ideas will help customers save time and money.

Set Up Stations

Small food stations throughout the room make it easier for guests to sample favorites. FreshDirect offers a large variety of crunchy snacks, many of which are currently on sale in the Brand Name Deals section including zesty, homemade salsa and classic dips.  Stocking the fridge is also key to any "Game Day" party, which is made easy with FreshDirect's wide selection of soda and beer.

Don't Forget the Veggies!

For the veggie lover, FreshDirect has discounted the popular Vegetable Crudites Platter, as well as the Mediterranean-style appetizer platter featuring creamy humus, zesty kalamata humus and a Spanish eggplant salad.

Stagger Hot Snacks

Hot snacks often go quickly, so staggering them when serving and passing them around rather than serving on a platter is often effective for ensuring snacks last the entire game. FreshDirect's Mini Beef Burger Sliders and Beef Franks in Blankets are available in a heat and serve catering platter.

Huddle Up For Dinner

Despite all-day snacking, dinner is not a meal that should be skipped on "Game Day." Hosts can look to create as much fun around dinner as throughout the party.  FreshDirect offers a wide variety of catering platters and ready to serve sandwiches and heroes like the All-American Super Hero filled with fresh deli meats and artisanal cheeses.  

Whether customers are hosting six or 60 people, FreshDirect has a catering platter created to please every occasion.  Pair sandwich and hero platters with fresh salads such as the Red Bliss Potato Salad Bowl that tastes as good as Mom used to make.  If guests are more the "make it yourself type" FreshDirect's custom cut fresh deli meats are always a popular choice. Visit the Game Day President's Picks list for Super Special discounts on Boars Head Deluxe Ham and Finlandia Swiss Cheese and save 25 percent.  

Make Final Points with Dessert

Score big cheers with FreshDirect's Football Cupcakes and make those last minutes of game time sweet.  These delicious freshly baked vanilla and chocolate cupcakes are topped with thick vanilla frosting and sweet candy footballs and are baked fresh daily in FreshDirect's bakery. As part of the special Game Day President's Picks, the 4-pack of cupcakes is available for just $4.99. For larger parties, a platter of 25 cupcakes is available. Hosts can display the cupcakes by themselves or put them out with the Cookies & Brownies Platters, filled with rich chocolate brownies and a variety of freshly baked cookies.  By the time the final whistle blows and guests bite into these tempting treats, it won't matter which team won, just that everyone got their scrumptious desserts from FreshDirect.

From the first kick-off to the final touchdown, FreshDirect has all the "Game Day" food and beverage needs at everyday low prices, conveniently delivered to your door. For more information on FreshDirect click on!
