If you’re like me, you know that the Super Bowl is one of the most exciting days of the year. The NFL’s biggest game brings together friends and family for a day full of great food, beverages, and fun! This year, don’t just go to a sports bar or someone else’s party. Host your own party instead! It can seem intimidating at first—I know it did for me—but it doesn’t have to be hard. In this post, I will walk you through everything you need to consider if you want your party to be a success this NFL season.
Excessive amounts of food.
The most important thing is to make sure there’s a lot of food. A good rule of thumb is that you should be able to feed your guests all the food they want, and then some. There’s nothing worse than having an empty plate at a Super Bowl party, especially when there are still two quarters left and those little snack-sized bags of chips just aren’t cutting it anymore.
To make sure your guests don’t go hungry during the game, prepare for this by stocking up on plenty of appetizers and snacks beforehand—you could even set up stations with specific types of finger foods if you like! It’ll help keep people from getting bored while watching TV (or playing fantasy football).
It’s also important not to overdo it when buying ingredients; buy more than enough for the number of people coming so there aren’t any shortages later on in the night (and no one has to wait too long). If you’re making something that needs refrigeration or freezing before serving time arrives, take care not too get ahead of yourself: remember what happened last time? That big bowl full Colombian dip went bad because we forgot about how long it takes until everything goes bad!
Decorations that reflect the teams playing, or football in general.
If you have a party, it is crucial to have decorations that reflect the teams playing or football in general. This will create an atmosphere where your guests feel comfortable and can let loose. There are many ways to decorate your house for Super Bowl parties.
I recommend purchasing a football themed banner and hanging it on your wall. The banner could say something like “Super Bowl Party” or simply “GO TEAM!” On game day, hang up posters of players from each team so that everyone can see them while they’re watching the game!
You can also make decorations out of cardboard boxes by cutting them into football shapes (kind of like snowflakes). You could fill these boxes with candy or popcorn and pass them around during halftime!
Day-of drinks and beer.
- Beer. It’s probably the most popular beverage at Super Bowl parties. But how do you keep your guests happy with a beer? Well, for starters, don’t serve it in a glass. You want to serve it in a large container (like a pitcher). Also, be sure to keep it cold—the longer your beer sits out at room temperature, the less enjoyable it is going to be.
You may be wondering: why not just have everyone bring their own beers? Well, people will certainly appreciate the gesture if they are invited to bring their own drinks rather than having to buy those of yours—but chances are there will still be plenty of people who don’t have any cans or bottles lying around their house and would rather just drink what you’ve got stocked up already.*
Any drinking games that you can think of.
Drinking games are a fun way to get people interacting, but they’re not for everyone. If you have any adults or teens who don’t drink, there are other options.
If you want something that gets your party started right away, try the Super Bowl Bingo game! This is an easy DIY game that anyone can make and play. All you need is some paper, markers and bingo chips!
If the guests at your party know each other well enough already (i.e., if they’ve been friends since elementary school), give them a list of questions about each other from which they must choose answers at random during commercials—and put on some music while everyone waits for their turn in order to keep things moving along quickly. You could even go all out with this idea by printing out images of famous people and having guests write down what celebrity matches which guest using both physical descriptions as well as personality traits (such as “I’m taller than him” or “She’s more athletic than me”). This will get everyone laughing while also helping them learn more about each other without putting too much pressure on anyone involved; plus it gives those who aren’t very good at small talk something interesting to talk about instead of just asking questions like “How’s work?”
Entertaining commercials during the game.
Entertaining commercials during the game.
While you’re watching football, you might as well make sure you have something to entertain yourself with. The commercials are a big part of that entertainment, and they can be just as good as the game itself. If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to watch commercials on TV, here’s your chance!
There are many websites dedicated to tracking and ranking these ads each year. Some people even watch them before or after the game so they don’t miss out on any great ones! It’s always good to keep your guests entertained in between plays and quarters (or whatever).
A television (or three) to catch all of the excitement.
It’s always a good idea to have at least one television available for your guests to watch the game. If you have multiple TVs, though, you can really take advantage of that by watching multiple games or different sports (or movies) on each one. You can also use them to play music and put up decorations.
If you don’t have enough room in your home for a bunch of TVs, there are also options like digital video recorders (DVRs) that allow you to record games onto a hard drive and replay them when they’re not being shown live on TV.
Hosting a successful Super Bowl party is about more than just throwing together a few decorations and some snacks.
Hosting a successful Super Bowl party is about more than just throwing together a few decorations and some snacks. It requires careful planning, creativity, and attention to detail.
Here are some tips to get you started:
- Decorate your house with items that reflect the teams playing in the game. For example, if you’re hosting a party for an American football fan who will be cheering on the New England Patriots (or any other team), decorate your house with red, white, and blue decorations so that it looks like it’s being filmed by an ESPN camera crew during halftime of the Super Bowl.
- Day-of drinks are essential to ensuring that everyone has enough refreshments on hand during the game. If everyone attending your event has been invited at least 24 hours beforehand (and preferably 48 hours beforehand), then there should be no problem getting their favorite drink ready ahead of time so that they don’t have to wait in line at 7 p.m., when they’re supposed to start watching! Beer is usually included in these day-of drink arrangements; however if someone else wants something different like wine or whiskey – make sure they tell YOU before bringing their own bottle into YOUR home!
All in all, hosting a Super Bowl party is easier than one might think. With some of these suggestions in mind and a bit of preparation, you can be sure to entertain your guests and watch the game in style. What’s more, we’re sure your guests will be impressed by how much effort you put into the event—and that’s the whole point, after all! So go forth, and make this year’s Super Bowl party one to remember!
