How to Throw the Perfect Super Bowl Party
The Super Bowl is the perfect way to get your football-loving family and friends together, where you can watch the game on your big-screen TV, drink beer or cocktails and gorge yourself on snacks. It's the best excuse to have fun. Here's how to throw an awesome Super Bowl party!
Invite everyone – your family and friends, even your colleagues! The more, the merrier, as long as everyone can see the tv! Estimate how many people will end up at the party and if seating is going to be an issue, add in smaller TVs in spaces like the kitchen or outside patio, or even ask your neighbors to loan you a big screen for different spots.
Set up the house. Layout tables and chairs, and bust out the barbecue. Bear in mind where people will be standing so that you won't have them blocking the view. Put up massive decorations! Our home team is playing this year so decorate the front door, the mailbox, the living room and even consider dressing up in team colors. Everything from AstroTurf coasters to helmet drink stirrers is fair game. Draw a line with masking tape down the center of the room for each team. Decorate each side in each team's colors.
Food should include chips and dip, hamburgers and hot dogs, chicken wings or even order in food like tacos, pizza or super-long deli sandwiches. Make your desserts football-themed, like cookies shaped like helmets or footballs.
Football wouldn't be the great American sport without the great American beverage. Beer! Serve up local beers from the cities of both teams in the big game.
Choose a signature cocktail for each team. Mix up a pitcher of each drink with a splash of food coloring to match each team's jerseys. When one side scores a touchdown, everybody gets a shot of the opposing team's drink.
Get into the game! Keep the competition going with a game of team and city trivia. Prepare a few questions about each team ahead of time and quiz your guests during commercial breaks or time-outs. Make bets to see who thinks which team is going to win and by how much. Add side bets on point spreads and the number of yards the MVP ran. Award silly prizes, like a big football piñata.
Throw a competition to see who has the most team spirit. Have face painting supplies, colorful streamers and spray on hair dye. Challenge your friends to be the biggest superfan and show off team spirit.
