It’s estimated that close to 115 million people around the world watch the Super Bowl so it’s no surprise that it’s a popular day for people to host a party. This year the Philadelphia Eagles and the New England Patriots will be playing in Minneapolis on February 4. If you plan to host a party, here are some tips and ideas you can consider:
Set up a rectangle table and decorate it to represent a football field. You can make a goal post out of PVC pipe or dowel rods and use orange construction paper to make cones. This can be the focal point for the party and you can load it up with snacks. For the dinnerware, you can get themed plates of your favorite team, tumblers, napkins and more from Party City. You can also have fun props laying around for guests to wear and take pictures with. Face paint is always a hit too for those die hard fans!
One essential aspect of a Super Bowl party is having the ideal menu so you can please the hungry stomachs that will come rolling through the door. Stock up on easy finger foods and appetizers. Pizza, hot dogs,wings with blue cheese, quesadillas, chips and salsa and other dips are always crowd pleasers. You can also do Broncos themed snacks and dessert like orange and blue popcorn, cake and Jello. Colorful drinks can make the party more festive as well!
This is the best way to ensure your guests stay entertained (other than being entertained by the Super Bowl commercials!) especially if the game gets intense. Some ideas are Guess the Score and Super Bowl Word Scramble. You can add a twist by playing one of the numerous commercial-related games such as writing down notes during the commercial break and playing a Super Bowl advertising trivia session later.
