With the hustle and bustle of my busy days, I love taking time out to relax with friends and family. Like you, I don’t always have time to plan a huge party, but hosting a simple gathering at home can be fast, easy and just as much fun!
Today, I’m sharing some simple party ideas and free party printables for Game Night. I love the idea of game night because it’s great for all ages!
When I think of a perfect night in, I think of food first and if it has anything to do with my family, that usually includes pizza. So, I’m thrilled to introduce you to Ristorante by Dr. Oetker USA , a fabulous brand of pizza that I’m partnering with this year!
What I love about Ristorante pizza is the crispy thin crust and unique toppings which are appealing to adults like me who like a more sophisticated pizza.
This is not your typical frozen pizza and believe me if you serve it at a party, people will think YOU made it from scratch. My kind of pizza! ha!
I hope you enjoy these fun party ideas and free printables for Game Night.

Game Night Invitations
Along with planning the food, be sure to think of the guest list and what games you want to play. I designed some cute Free Printable Party Invitations that are perfect for a game night with friends or family.
Even when it’s just a night in with my husband and kids, I like to give them “formal” invitations. The kids love that!

Games & Prizes
When choosing games, sometimes it’s fun to write all of the games each person wants to play on strips of paper and have someone draw them out of a jar or hat.
Think of fun prizes for both winners and losers. When my kids were babies, we used to play spades once a month with three other couples. We had a loser trophy that we passed along to the couple in last place. We were always ready to come back the next month to give that trophy back! Any silly prize is always fun for a night in with friends.
Food Ideas for Game Night
I love serving pizza on Game Night because it’s easy finger food to grab and play.
Ristorante has eight unique pizza toppings, and for my game night I chose Pepperoni Pesto topped with Pepperoni, sliced roma tomatoes, pesto, mozzarella cheese and the Quattro Formaggi with four premium cheeses: Edam, mozzarella, Emmental, and blue cheese, with basil seasoning. They were both delicious!
Check out the Ristorante Store Locator to find this frozen pizza near you. If your local supermarket does not currently sell Ristorante, put in a request with the store manager!
After baking and slicing the two pizzas, I served them on some wooden game boards. Opting for something other than your typical party platter can make a creative party table display with very little effort!
So if you have any old games with missing pieces, now you know what to do with the boards:-)
Another fun and easy idea is to write on crackers with edible markers to make Scrabble tiles. Your guests will be wowed by this super simple idea:-)
Having simple, creative ideas and good food can make your game night in a blast!
