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.

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.

Day” food and beverage
needs at everyday low prices, conveniently delivered to your door. For more
