Question: Im holding an american theme day at work HELP!?
i need ideas for food and games for an american themed fun day at work!. apart from the obvious hotdogs and dohnuts what other food could i lay on for the staff!. also any game ideas would be appreciatedWww@FoodAQ@Com

For food you can do what the other posters have mentioned:
Hamburgers and hot dogs with toppings
macorini salad, potato salad, cole slaw,
Baked beans,
french fries,
apple pie

I love the idea of a cake and you can do the sheet cake and ice it in white icing and then do the strawberries as the stripes lined up in rows and the blueberries as the stars and a white cake mix!.

For games, you can do potato sack races, three legged races, wheel barrel races, have fun with the old time fun relay races!

Tug of war!

Set up a volleyball net and play volleyball and badmitten!.

You can do an American trivia and go online for facts and things and ask questions of everyone and the one who gets the most right wins!

You can do a pie eating contest, but instead of pie, fill the tins with whipped cream and whoever finishes first, wins!

For drinks you can do water, lemonade, iced tea, root beer floats, etc!.

You can also do a contest of people decorating hats, whoever does the best hat in an American theme wins, or if you have cubicles, have them decorate their cubicle and then let there be a few judges and whoever they decide is the best and followed the theme most, wins!

For prizes, stick to the American theme too like gift cards for ice cream and things like that!.

You can decorate with red, white, and blue balloons and streamers, etc!.

I hope some of these ideas help and that you have a great party!Www@FoodAQ@Com

Do like a carnival theme or BBQ/Picnic theme!. Think about a summer day where you may watch a baseball game or have a backyard party!. Red and white checkered table cloths, picnic decor with potato salad, chicken, salad, cookies, etc!. I've also been to events where they do it like a carnival or fair with an old fashioned popcorn maker, funnel cakes, cotton candy, hot dogs, etc!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

hot dogs, apple pie, potato salad, fried anything, smores, coke a cola, root beer floats!. for the hot dogs make it a build you dog bar with all the fixins like chili, onions, relish, ketchup, mustards, tomatoes, jalapenos- like Chicago style hot dogs http://www!.flukys!.com/html/recipe!.html
for games you can do various trivia games of US history and stuff- or make a match up game of famous US Landmark pictures down one side and either they write in the name or have the mixed up names down the other side of the paper!. give out fun prizes like puzzles of US pictures or road atlases or something Red White and Blue!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

You could make a big sub sandwich out of loafs of french bread (yes, its american!) and slice it lengthwise - you could pull some of the bread inside one half out to make the sandwich easier to bite into!. Pour on Italian dressing on side and mayo on the other!. Then the fun part!

Add any kinds of lunch meat!. I have done all kinds of combinations, like Salami, Roast beef, Ham, Turkey, then add Sliced American Cheese or Swiss cheese!. Then add slivered Bell Peppers, sliced onions, cucumbers, or any veggies you want!. Slap it together then slice into individual sized sammies!. They are really good (everyone asks for more when I make these - I take them to tailgating parties, football games, hiking, wherever I want and they are always all gone when I am done!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

American football could be fun, you could get little footballs from a party store use them as decoration!. Hamburgers are always good!. Anything red, white and blue!. For a game you could do a pie eating contest, that may be a little messy for an office though!. You could do trivia games and whoever gets the most correct wins a prize!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Well since eveyone else did Americana I will tell you about a party I threw once!. I throw a holiday party on Xmas eve every year and try to pick a food theme and then a color!. One year I did tastes of the states!.

I started in New England and had clams!. Did Nathans for NY!. Pork bbq sliders for the southeast!. A muffelatta for the bayou!. Mini corn skewers and burger sliders for the midwest!. Quesadillas for the southwest!. Fresh fruit with yogurt dip for CA!. Salmon mousse for the northwest!.

I won't lie, for desserts I hit a few shops up!. At BJ's I bought some frozen cream puffs and cheese cake!. I had my mother in law make some sweet potatoe pie, and of course bought a few apple pies!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
