Super Bowl Party Ideas

Who’s ready for some football?

Football Field

Its all been decided…the Atlanta Falcons will take on the New England Patriots at 6:30 on Sunday February 5th for Super Bowl LI in Houston, Texas! The game will be broadcast on Fox and feature Lady Gaga as the half-time performer.

Whether you are a die-hard football fan, just want to see the commercials or have some cool snacks, the Super Bowl is a fabulous time to get together with family and friends.

Are you hosting a party at your home? Keep yourself organized with this checklist. From food, drinks, decorations and seating for everyone, there is a lot to think about.

In terms of food, you’ll probably want a mix of finger foods for appetizers, and something heartier, like chili, for your main course. Things like chicken wings, chips and guacamole or salsa, 7-layer dip and meatballs are always popular.

Here are some resources to get you started on that menu!

Now, how about some decorations?

This guide from the Huffington Post has a lot of fun ideas to get your place football-ready! Maybe you’ll want to make a football-themed table runner to put your snacks on, decorate Mason jars with team colors (and put things like straws or utensils in them), create football garland strings, or spruce up your beverage bin with football decorations.

Don’t forget to have plenty of drinks on hand, and a few desserts would be great as well. Chocolate chip cookies and brownies are typically crowd-pleasers, but here are a few other creative ideas to consider!

Whether you do, we hope you have a fabulous Super Bowl experience!
