A Bella Vita Makeover

With fall in full swing, it's high time you started focusing on the important parts of the season-- one of them, of course, being football. While you may loathe the amount of time that your hubby spends in front of the TV during this ever-so-popular time of year, we're here to help you put your hostess skills to work, turning all of that couch sitting into the perfect reason to plan a party. 

Party, you say? In order to prove your hall of fame hostessing skills, you'll need an arsenal of unique and tasty tailgating snacks to serve the team during all of this season's football games. As always, we've got your back and are your biggest fans when it comes to creating the perfect spread for your hungry hubby and his football-watching pals. 

Our Favorite Tailgating Snacks

1. Superbowl Walking Tacos- Always a favorite, this combination of Frito Pie and the tastiness of seven layer dip will have all of your football fans cheering. Plus, it doesn't require plates thanks to the chip bags!

2. Festive Football Food - All of your snacks will be transformed into festive footballs with these cute ideas for easy finger foods. Who knew a hard boiled egg could make such a cute little football?

3. Touchdown Tablescape - The best tailgating snacks deserve a winning tablescape on which they can be displayed. These ideas for cute and simple DIY athletic accents will make your party the most popular tailgate on the block!

4. Buffalo Chicken Dip- Wings and football go together like two peas in a pod, don't you think? Chips and dips scream tailgating, too, so why not combine the two concepts to create one delicious dip to please all of your football fans? Creamy, spicy and super yummy--that's the score that this recipe will earn!

5. Dress up an Old Favorite- A modern take on chili-cheese fries or potato skins, these bacon wrapped tator tots on a stick are as easy to eat as they are to snatch off of the serving tray. Their simple, small size will make them perfect for eating during all of your jumping up and down as your favorite team scores. Be careful though, because you can't stop at just one!

Here's to feeding your own winning team, all football season long!
