Every year when the Super Bowl comes around people use it as an excuse for a party. Personally, I don’t think you need an excuse for a party, but it’s fun to have the game on as an activity in between socializing! Plus, if you don’t like the game itself, the commercials alone are worth watching! So why not host your own party for the big game? And it doesn’t even have to be the Super Bowl. It could be your favorite college teams bowl game or your NFL team’s playoff game! Whatever the reason there are a few things to keep in mind.
Number 1: Make sure there is plenty of FOOD! What is it about a sporting event on TV that makes us want to snack? Well you need to make sure the crowds are well fed. The key is making it a buffet style party so people don’t miss the game. And if you really want to watch the game, make food that can be prepped early!The ever favorite chips and dip is important. FoodNetwork.com is a great resource for Game Day Snack recipes. And if you are making any of these, here is a fun Football Dip Holder.
Now that you have the dip, you need the vehicle for getting the dip in your mouth! Crackers, pretzels, chips, pita bread you name it. Most anything can be used. So why not put it in this fun Textured Football Bowl?
Number 2: Decorations! No party is complete without decorations. If you have a favorite team, you can use the team colors. Just about every team out there has branded disposable party supplies. If you don’t care who wins…football decorations in general work well. Create a “football” table by using a green disposable tablecloth and use white duct tape to create the lines on a football field. Make sure you have plenty of disposable plates, napkins and utensils, because really, who wants to clean all that up?
And finally Number 3: Beverages, adult or otherwise! Obviously the drink of choice for many is beer. Make sure plenty is on hand and kept cold. A great solution for this is one of these Copper Rivet Planters filled with ice and beer. You can even squeeze in a wine bottle for those who don’t drink beer.
While you are at it, have a second planter on hand for soft drinks and water for those who prefer non-alcoholic drinks. And if you really want to get fancy, FoodNetwork.com had some great punch recipes for a big crowd.
