This probably explains why my birthday was my favorite holiday growing up (no joke). I loved the fact that I could customize my birthday party theme to whatever I wanted — smiley face theme, pirate theme, cowgirl theme, spa theme… you catch the drift.
To this day, I still have an affinity for themed parties. Swim parties, Hawaiian BBQ parties, ugly Christmas sweater parties… the list goes on! However, one of my favorite, easy party ideas is game night. One, because it’s laid back — no attire requirements, no real need to RSVP; two, because games bring people together (or tear y’all apart, depending on what you’re playing!) and everyone always has a blast; and three, did I mention they’re EASY?! Seriously. Break out the board games, card games and charades and you’re good to go.
Tony’s Pizza has been a favorite of my family for as long as I can remember. I loved snacking on it for lunches and dinners as a kid and teen, and love it just as much nowadays, too. Tony’s Pizza has one of the best crusts around — thin and crispy with the perfect crunch — which gives it that great, authentic pizzeria taste. Plus, it’s made with real tomato sauce, real cheese and quality ingredients, making it as close to the pizza parlor as possible.
This game night set-up is super easy to create. Master the perfect game night in these simple steps!
1. Take inventory of your games. Have any rogue tokens or dice lying around? Great! Sprinkle these pieces around your tablescape to help set the tone. Or do what I did and use an old board game as the centerpiece for your table! Arrange your food in decorative bowls/plates on top of the board game — I served my Tony’s Pizza up on cake stands and placed the stands on top of a vintage Monopoly board.
3. Buy some old fashioned sodas in glass bottles and arrange them around the buffet table. The vintage feel of the sodas looks awesome and playful against the game set-up.
4. Consider playing your dessert — at tic-tac-toe, that is! Buy chocolate and vanilla sandwich cookies and use them to play Tic-Tac-Toe with another friend. Winner gets both flavors 🙂 you could also substitute pretzels, nuts, M&M’s by color, or even gumballs.
5. Serve a decent variety of finger foods so people can enjoy their games without the fuss of utensils. Tony’s Pizza is perfect for this! Just bake, slice, and serve! You don’t even need to traditionally slice them into wedges — consider slicing them into strips and serving them in cups like sticks. You could even serve up small cups of dipping sauces, like ranch, buffalo, or more marinara!
However you roll it, Tony’s Pizza is sure to be a win at your next game night!
