Super Bowl Sunday is one of the top party occasions of the year. If you can't go to the game, get your friends together for the celebration. What does every football party need? A big TV, lots of food, drinks, and comfy chairs. It doesn't hurt to decorate for the game, and to dress up in football jerseys for the event.
Super Bowl Party Food
Super Bowl party food doesn't require a chef in the kitchen. Go for subs, pizzas, a sandwich tray with sliced meats and cheeses, and a pot of homemade chili and crackers. On the snack table put out bowls of chips and dip, nachos and salsa, peanuts, and a tray of raw vegetables. Stop by the bakery for cookies shaped and decorated like footballs. You could buy a football sheet cake, too.
Drinks for the Super Bowl party can be beer, wine or something stronger, depending on your guests. Have lots of bottled water, colas and ice. Start a pot of coffee brewing. Keep a cooler of beer and soda in the television room, so no one misses the tie-breaking touchdown while they are in the kitchen.
Decorating for the Super Bowl Party
- Put several giant televisions around the room, borrow some if you have to, so everyone has a good view of the action.
- Bring in extra chairs so your guests are comfortable.
- Visit the party store for football themed decorations, a tablecloth, a football pinata, paper plates, plastic silverware, napkins and disposable drink cups. Buy those snack bowls shaped like footballs.
- Put out a giant bag for waste.
- Remove all small and precious items from the room, in case your guests get too enthusiastic.
- Hang football flags outside your front door.
- Equip your bathroom with extras for the crowd.
