Are you hoping to crush your Super Bowl party this year? Crafting the right atmosphere and serving excellent food is vital. Here are some simple tips to make this one to remember.

Set the Stage

  1. Create a dedicated viewing area with comfortable seating and a large-screen TV.
  2. Arrange the furniture to ensure everyone has a good view of the game.
  3. Dim the lights and consider adding festive decorations, such as team banners or football-themed tablecloths.
  4. Create an Insta-worthy backdrop for guests in team colors or football-themed balloons.
  5. Roll out the “green carpet.” Use synthetic grass anywhere: as a front door mat, a tablecloth, or cut into small pieces for coasters.
  6. Create a playlist of popular game-day songs to keep the energy up during commercial breaks. With the right ambiance, your guests will feel like they’re at the stadium!
  7. Take it to the next level by transforming your living room into a mini tailgate party with big game-day atmosphere. Set up a grilling station where you can cook up delicious game-day snacks like burgers, hot dogs, and chicken wings.

Create An All-Star Menu

One of the most critical aspects of ANY party is the food. You’ll want to satisfy your guests’ appetites throughout the game. Finger foods are always fun; consider sliders, chips and dips, soft pretzels, veggie trays, and pizza. Remember to include vegetarian and gluten-free options to accommodate all dietary preferences, and provide plenty of plates and napkins for easy snacking! Some other fun ideas include:

  • Football-shaped deviled eggs

  • Buffalo chicken dip

  • DIY nacho or chili bar

  • Hearty pot of wings

  • Caramelized five-onion dip

Keep the ball rolling during time-outs with fun activities

While the main event of your Super Bowl party is watching the game, additional entertainment can add a boost for any lulls (and for those who may not be football fanatics)

  1. Mini game area where guests can play football-themed games like cornhole, mini football toss, or even a friendly game of touch football in the backyard if the weather permits
  2. Super Bowl trivia or prediction pool: guests can guess the final score or the MVP of the game
  3. Prizes: having something for the winners can add a level of fun to the competition

Follow Up with your Fans:

  1. Replay the fun by capturing photos and videos during the party and post to social media
  2. Score extra points with take-home goodie bags filled with cute items like football stress balls, Super Bowl “rings,” football-shaped chocolates, collapsible can coolers, and more!

By creating a festive and spirited atmosphere, your Super Bowl party will surely be a triumph!
