Super Bowl Sunday is fast approaching and everyone is excited to celebrate the biggest sporting event of the year. If you’re planning to throw a football-themed party at home, the first thing you’ll need is a good game plan. Here are some winning football party tips to ensure a fun and successful Super Bowl bash.
Draft Your Guests
The traditional Super Bowl party has become much more than watching the game with other football aficionados. It’s about letting loose and whooping it up with friends over an unending supply of food and drinks. So go ahead and invite your favorite relatives, friends, neighbors, and colleagues even if they’re not keen or familiar with football.
Ask your guests to wear clothes in colors that represent the team they’re rooting for. Encourage them to put on face paint and even bring foam fingers to cheer their team on.
Spruce Up the Stadium
Create a colorful Super Bowl setting by hanging banners and sports posters, displaying football-inspired paraphernalia, and using napkins, party plates, and cups with NFL logos and designs.
If you’re passionate about a particular football team, nothing makes a bigger statement than setting up a Treetopia Christmas tree adorned in your team’s colors. The Treetopia Sassy Sapphire Blue Tinsel Tree decked with lime green and white ornaments is a stunning tribute for any Seattle Seahawks fanatic.
Wild for the Denver Broncos? Hang navy blue ornaments on The 100% Orange Christmas Tree from Treetopia to blow away the competition.
Food for Champions
A Super Bowl party is the best time to indulge in finger-licking football fare. Keep your guests munching happily with snack bowls filled with chips, onion dip, nachos, popcorn, and mixed nuts.
Plan a variety of simple foods that are easy to serve and eat while watching the game. Items such as cheese pizzas and spicy Buffalo wings will score big points with your ravenous guests.
With winter still in full swing, a hot bowl of spicy chili is just the thing for a chilly evening. This spicy recipe from The Brown Eyed Baker uses ancho, arbol, and jalapeno peppers for three scintillating layers of heat. If you’re expecting vegetarian guests or if you want to serve a healthy option, this veggie chili recipe is sure to fire up everyone’s appetites.
Pour It On
Screaming and cheering at the TV can be thirsty work, so stock up on an assortment of beer or invest in a mini beer keg to keep your guests in high spirits. Don’t forget to offer non-alcoholic beverages, such as water, soda, and juice for guests who don’t drink. Keep plenty of ice on hand for your football party drinks because this may just be the year the Super Bowl goes into overtime.
