Game day is almost here, and you've volunteered to host a party! There are probably a million things running through your mind, between preparing the food and organizing the perfect viewing area, but hosting a game day party doesn't have to be stressful. It's important to plan ahead! Leaving things until Sunday morning will guarantee disaster.

We recommend that you start planning at least five days ahead of time. That will give you enough time to invite everyone, grocery shop, cook and clean. Be sure to invite an equal number of fans from both opposing teams. That way, no one will feel left out. 

Next step: Figure out what you want to cook and how much food you'll need. Have a detailed list ready before you leave for the grocery store.

Tip: Be aware of any allergies your guests have. (Check out our article on the 10 Most Common Food Allergies.)

Once you've got the food, check out the slideshow above for 8 simple tips to ensure that game day goes smoothly.
