Throwing An Epic Superbowl Party
Throwing An Epic Superbowl Party
It’s almost that time of year when everyone sits around their TV screens and roots for their team. Here comes the Super Bowl! The Super Bowl has played a game every year since 1967. If you’re planning to throw a Super Bowl party (and, surely, who wouldn’t? ) Here are a few suggestions to delight your guests as well as make life a little easier and the party more fun.
Decor: Make Sure You Choose Green
The idea of a Super Bowl party is probably the only occasion you can get away with artificial grass as a part of your décor. You can make use of this versatile material for table runners, a carpet for your area, and coasters. It can be given a stadium-like feel by applying the white color of paint or even tape embellishing it to resemble the markings of the yard lines in the fields.
Create a Big Impact With Tiny Touches
They may sound cliche but that’s just because they’re functional. Balloons (either with team colors or black and white to coordinate with the uniforms of the ref) are a cost-effective option to add color and flair to your living space. You can attach helium balloons to doorknobs and chairs or hang them from your ceiling. Other ceiling decorations that are fun are football-shaped lanterns or classic streamers. If children are attending your event you might want them to make tissue paper pom-poms or cannons of confetti.
Create Space for Everyone
The game might be the main reason behind your gathering however this doesn’t mean everyone has to be watching the TV all day long. Apart from having comfortable seating around the television, consider having other spaces in which people can gather to talk and take a bite to eat. If there are children at home, you’ll require a separate space for them, perhaps with a second TV to enjoy movies. You can even rent a bounce house to put in the yard so the children burn off all that energy.
Create the Perfect Photo-op Location
Your guests will want to keep a record of the fun they’re enjoying with a few photos. It’s simple and cost-effective to put up a great backdrop using football-related banners, streamers, and even store-bought or DIY posters. You can even be extra and rent a photo booth.
Games: Because You’ll Require Something to do Between Quarters and Halftime
Show who is a true football guru with full-contact football game trivia. Start by asking questions about the sport, the teams, or the players. There are plenty of questions on statistics and records, however, there are also some interesting facts, such as the reality that it takes around five million dollars to make each set of jewel-encrusted Super Bowl rings. That’s quite a bit of sparkle!
Super Bowl Pool
If you’ve never placed a bet on a sporting event before, it’s simple to create your very own Super Bowl squares so you as well as your guests can take part in some enjoyable wagers. It’s a great and easy technique to help make playing more exciting (even for those who aren’t particularly interested in sports).
Food: Because, Some Just Show For the Food
Pile The Appetizers
It is best to begin with your Super Bowl party well in the lead to the start of your game. The guests should be there within two hours, although some choose to have an early brunch which then transitions into the game’s actual event. In any scenario, it’s a great idea to make a big splash with the appetizers, since that’s an essential part of this Super Bowl party scene. Chips and dips as well as pigs wrapped in blankets, sliders, nachos, and wings.
The Super Bowl party is an excellent occasion to indulge in your most cherished indulgences. For many, this means rich and delicious sandwiches, such as those offered by Subway. Other traditional favorites comprise pizza (thin crust thick crust, traditional toppings or off-the-wall condiments), BBQ (sweet or spicy sauces or rubs, chicken, pork, and beef ) as well as Mexican (nachos, tortillas, tacos, and burritos as well as the Guacamole!).
Get Creative With Your Drinks
Like the mint julep, which is the drink that’s popular during the Kentucky Derby, beer is one of the most popular drinks for football. However, that doesn’t mean it’s the only thing you could serve. Based on the type of food you’re serving, you could include the Super Bowl punch or iced tea. The margarita, or Bloody Mary can be an attractive option. Maybe something a little more seasonal, like a mulled cider or hot toddy. Of course, you’ll need to be able to choose non-alcoholic options too.
Goal: Just Have Fun!
In the final analysis, the primary goal of the Super Bowl party is to gather with family and friends to have a fun day filled with camaraderie and excitement. If you’re all supporting one team as well as opposing teams the most important thing is to have fun spending time with your loved ones.
Then, when the game is finished and it’s time to go out and go home, make sure you send your guests with a few leftovers for them to eat as a late-night snack. (Pro tip: Get cheap takeaway containers in advance.) Make sure that everyone has a secure way to return home.
