The end of January is here, and that means it’s time for the Super Bowl! If you have just decided to host your first Super Bowl extravaganza, you might not know where to begin. The good news is that Super Bowl parties are similar to any other kind of party, but there are a few important things to consider. Here are some ideas for making your Super Bowl party the event of the season.
Location, Location, Location
Picking the perfect location for your Super Bowl party is the number one concern. The size of the venue depends on how many people you plan on inviting. An apartment or house are the most common locations for a Super Bowl party, and houses with a more open plan are preferred.
If your party is bigger than your home and you have the resources, renting out a community center auditorium or movie theater is another option to consider. Once you decide on a location, the set-up becomes a crucial aspect.
It’s All In The Set-Up
Take some time to consider the set-up. Be sure to bring enough chairs for your guests. Arrange them to make optimal use of your space around the television, particularly challenging for smaller abodes. Remove any obstructions so your guests can watch the game from any location in the viewing room.
The football game is the focal point of the party, so it is imperative to make sure that it is the centerpiece of the room.
Dress For Success
You probably have a good idea which team you want to win the Super Bowl. Whether you bet on the sure thing or love rooting for the underdog, someone has to go home with the Lombardi Trophy. If you have the funds, buy yourself a jersey or t-shirt from one of the teams playing.
This is football, so wearing the colors of your favorite team, even if you’re not in the big game, is also appropriate. It’s all about celebrating the culmination of another NFL season.
Wings ‘n Things: The Real Star Of The Party
Whether you plan on cooking or catering the event, food preparation takes a lot of time. If you’re going to cook, consider some affordable Super Bowl staples like chicken wings or pizza. Put your smoker to good use by throwing in a juicy prime rib roast.
Don’t forget about chips, dips, and other appetizers to whet your guest’s appetites before the main course. Of course, tossing in some salads, fruits, or veggies will encourage healthy eating on this gluttonous day.
