Are you ready for some football? I know we are! My husband is a big Michigan football fan, and we moved into a neighborhood full of other college football fans. Of course my husband’s team is the rivalry of most of our neighbors, fate wouldn’t have had it any other way. We are settling in nicely in our new neighborhood, and to get know everyone a little better I’m hosting a homegate (tailgate at home) extravaganza! I love planning a party, but I enjoy it even more when the Game Time Celebration Planning is Made Easier with KING’S HAWAIIAN® and Walmart.
Walmart is a great one stop shop for all my game time needs. When I walk in the door I’m greeted by a wall of my favorite KING’S HAWAIIAN® products. It’s a total sign that their yummy buns and rolls need to be the captain of my party food team. My shopping list had me planning for hot sandwiches as the main entree, but when I saw the buttery-soft and perfectly sweet Deluxe Hamburger Buns, I instantly knew they would take my sandwich to the next level.
My main crowd pleasing entree will be served on KING’S HAWAIIAN® Hawaiian Sweet Hamburger Buns. However, since there will be kids at the party, I snagged a few packs of the Original Hawaiian Sweet 4 Pack Dinner Rolls too. I appreciate the best by date stickers on the packaging to ensure I am getting the freshest products for my guests. I need to make sure my guests are served rolls that are soft and fluffy.
Making my way further into the store, I have my rolls, but I know I need party supplies. I don’t want to be washing dishes after the party when everyone goes home. I decided to go with some bright colored plates and straws to liven up the party table. Walmart has a nice variety of colors so you can show support for your favorite team. It also never hurts to stock up on my regular household paper supplies at the good prices.
Next up, fresh eats. I always try and serve a variety of fresh fruit and vegetables. Walmart offers great pre-made trays that are ready when I am party shopping. I love how even the kids will snack on the vegetables and dip if they are out on display and in easy reach.
I’ll round out the party food selection with an assortment of dips, chips and pretzels and of course, I can’t forget dessert. I am thinking I need to make some of these super cute KING’S HAWAIIAN® Cream Puffs! OMY goodness! Yes. I do believe I need to make these asap.
Or maybe I will go all out and whip up a batch of these Apple and Salted Caramel Cookie Cups bursting with the flavors of Fall. Decisions, decisions.
I’m not unveiling my secret weapon hot sandwich recipe until later, so you need to make sure you check back in a few weeks to see how I pulled together the ultimate game time homegate thanks to Walmart and KING’S HAWAIIAN®. I’ll give you a hint though. The recipe contains fresh pineapple.
