Superbowl is coming soon and that means the party prepping needs to start too! These party tips will help ensure a fun night with your friends and family.
Decorate with team colors
Decorations can change the feel of a room. Use the colors of the two teams playing in the big game to create an atmosphere that brings the competition into your living room. You could use streamers or even certain colored foods as part of your decor!
Play “halftime” music
As guests arrive, have a playlist in the background with music from the artists performing during the halftime show to raise excitement. The music helps set the mood of the night but also makes it more comfortable so the space will not be quiet before the game starts. You could also have the TV on with pre-game show but maybe on mute until you are ready to turn the music off and turn the volume up in the TV!
Let the games begin
Before the kickoff, have a few games to keep your guests entertained and having fun! You can download or make your own Game Day BIngo to play and use color themed M&M’s to cover the boxes. Another great idea is to have a place for everyone to write down what they think will be the final score. Pick a winner from the group to receive a gift card!
Food is a party must
Food is an essential aspect of a Super Bowl party. Some may argue its as important as the game. When tensions high because your team is down by 7, you may want to munch on a few yummy snacks! Dip and chips is a great option. Buffalo dip and spinach artichoke dip are always crowd favorites. Chocolate covered strawberries and grapes are great additions as well.
Make it easier with a potluck
As the host, you want to provide a few snacks on your own, but a potluck can be a fun way to go! When you invite your guests, include a link to sign up for what they want to bring. This way you have more variety with drinks, desserts, and more food! You can also have an option for some people to bring napkins, cutlery, cups, and plates. That is an easy option if they are busy and don’t have time to bring a food item! Here is a great website you can use to make signing up even easier.

Drinks can be BYOB
Drinks can start to become costly, especially if you go the alcoholic route. Save some cash and make the invite BYOB. This way, you cut down on costs and people have their drink of choice! If you want, you can provide water and some soft drinks just in case some people forget.
These few tips will make for a memorable super bowl party, even if your team isn’t the winner. Don’t forget to have enough seating and send out your invites! Super Bowl Sunday is just around the corner!
