Super Bowl Sunday is February 5 – what will you be doing? If you’re like the millions of people in America, you’ll probably be tuning in (at some point, at least!) to check out the big game, the commercials, or the halftime show. You more than likely will be enjoying some delicious snacks also! But why do this alone? Be sure to get your best friends together at your place to enjoy a Super Bowl party like none other!
Oh, and yes, you can put together an amazing Super Bowl party at the last minute. That’s why we’re here! Check out these 6 helpful tips to help you organize and enjoy your Super Bowl party this year:
Make It Comfy – Super Bowl calls for casual get-togethers to check out the game, nosh on some delicious food, and enjoy each other’s company. Create a comfy atmosphere by bringing in some throw pillows and floor cushions from the other rooms in your home. Toss them anywhere your guests may plop down!
Stage It Right – Let’s face it – not everyone will be watching the game. Prep two or three rooms in your home to accommodate your guests properly. One room can be the designated game-viewing area while the other two rooms can be dedicated to chit-chat and playing board games and card games. Be sure to keep some snacks in each of these rooms!
Create a Mouth-Watering Spread – According to the Department of Agriculture, Super Bowl Sunday is the 2nd largest food consumption event of the year, second only to Thanksgiving. Be sure to have plenty of grub on hand for your guests to enjoy! We’re thinking of mozzarella sticks, wings, chips and salsa, meatballs, spinach artichoke dip, and nachos. Don’t forget dessert! Brownies and fun cookies are always a hit.
Set Up a Stellar Bar – Get stocked up on your guests’ favorite drinks (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic), ice, cups, and lemon and lime wedges. You can set up your bar in the kitchen or even on any type of flat, stable surface. We suggest putting a plastic tablecloth down for easy cleanup!
Don’t Forget Your Vegetarian Friends – Offer your vegetarian guests a bit of variety, too! Choices like dip, bean dip, guacamole, freshly-cut vegetables and fruits, or a cheese tray are always good options.
Get Your Guests into the Game – There’s nothing wrong with a little bit of team rivalry! Ask your guests to come over sporting the colors of the team they want to win, their favorite player’s jersey, or a team t-shirt. This year, the Falcons will be taking on the Patriots, so colors will range from red, white, and blue to red and black. Feel free to keep fans on separate sides of the room or integrate them. Bonus points if they come up with a cheer or two!
