It all comes down to two teams: Denver Broncos against the Carolina Panthers for Super Bowl 50. Super Bowl Sunday has become an unofficial holiday in this country where everyone gathers together to enjoy greasy foods and cheer for their favorite team (or the team they hate less). Whether or not you care about the teams fighting for the top spot, Super Bowl Sunday is the perfect reason to invite all your friends over and enjoy the big game.
Gather a list of all friends, coworkers and family you want to invite over to the big game. Send out the evites or personally call each person, inviting them over to your house. If you are going the email or mail route, include an RSVP date. This will help you gain an idea of the number of people that will be attending so you can make sure there will be enough food for everyone.
Once you have a good idea of the number of people who will be attending the party, you can start shopping for everything you will need. Greasy finger foods are the best route to go for a Super Bowl party. Order up some wings, pizza and plenty of chips and dips. Set it up buffet style and let your guests run free.
You can also set up a taco bar so the only prep work you would need is to cut up all the vegetables and lay out the sides. If you don’t want to go through the hassle of having to cook large amounts of food, have the party catered. Caterers prepare everything you need and the only thing you would have to do is keep it warm throughout the day.
Have plenty of drink options for your guests. Make a trip to your discount wholesale store and stock up on sodas, juices and beers for the big day. If you’re looking to create a theme with your drinks go for a Denver Pale Ale by Great Divide Brewing Co., and a Carolina Blonde by Foothills Brewing. Once the game has started, nobody is going to want to leave their seats. Place coolers around the viewing areas for the drinks so guests do not have to travel far for refreshments.
The most important aspect of a Super Bowl party, other than the food, is the television you will be using to watch the game. You do not want your guests having to squint at the television to see what is going on. Ensure everyone gets a good view by having a big screen television. If you feel as if your television does not make the cut, this could be the perfect excuse to upgrade. You can also rent a giant screen television for the big day and then return it when you’re finished.
Nobody wants to watch the game squished up on one couch. Make sure you have plenty of seating for everyone at the party. Stream the game in your luxury theater room so everyone can have their own seat to lounge out on. Check out this blog to creating a high end theater room for your home. If you need some extra seating, set up some chairs along the sides of the aisles or even some comfy bean bags up front.
Unless you’re a hardcore fan of one of the teams playing, the pre-game show may not be that exciting. This would be an excellent time to set up some games and bets you can play before and during the game. The commercials are one of the best parts of the Super Bowl, download these special bingo cards and bet on the types of commercials that will be played during the game. Set up a pool for the ending scores of each quarter and invite all your guests to participate. If you’re unsure about how to set up a scoring pool, check out this helpful guide.
To help with the clean up after the game is over, utilize paper plates and red solo cups. After everyone is done with their food, they can just throw away the plates and silverware. Make sure you empty out the trash bin every once in a while to ensure it doesn’t overflow or designate a few different spots where people can throw away their trash. Empty out the dishwasher before everyone arrives so you can throw any non-paper products in there for a quick clean up.
