Menu Planning By Color
Throwing a party for game day? Be a good fan and serve only food of your team’s color.
Red foods are easy, so menu planning for fans of the 49ers should be simple. Nature has provided an abundance of foods, both sweet and savory, in this popular shade. While this list is far from comprehensive, it does name some of the most popular and easy-to-serve dishes.
Blue foods are tricky. Not many foods are blue by nature, and that's probably for good reason. Food turns blue when it's spoiled, and it's hard to get past that signal in your head. Be careful what foods you dye blue, or your pretty spread of food may go untouched.
If you're rooting for the Patriots, Texans or Giants, a blue menu isn't impossible - it's just going to require a little extra thought.
If your team color is yellow, your party is sure to be the brightest place on the block. Even if you don't win, it's hard not to be happy with food the color of sunshine.
Much like blue, some foods just shouldn't be green. Thankfully, there are a few more foods that are naturally green.
If you're a Packers fan, you'll probably have more luck mixing green and yellow foods than trying to stick with just one.
You lucked out, Broncos fans! Orange foods are few and far between, but the ones that do exist lend themselves great to parties!
Ravens fans, rejoice. Purple foods are usually sweet. Many sweet berries are a shade of purple, making purple a very dessert-friendly color. There are some savory dishes in this shade, though not as many as in other colors.
Take it to the next level by making sure your tableware and decor match your food color scheme!
