There’s nothing quite like getting together with family and friends and watching one of the country’s greatest sport events. When a Super Bowl party is going on, everything is as fine as can be, but the lead up to it can be quite stressful. You have to think about guests, food, fun fare, and so many other factors. Whether this is your first shindig or your tenth, you can follow these preparation tips below to make things a bit easier on yourself.
Spread out the work. Do not commit all of your preparation time to the day before the Super Bowl. Perhaps work throughout the whole week. Not only will this make the work easier and less anxiety-inducing, but it will also grant you more room in case some unexpected issue arises.
Use social media to your advantage. Instead of making phone calls and writing letters to invite guests and inform them of various developments surrounding the party, make a Facebook event, tweet any updates, etc. You can coordinate things much easier this way.
Stick with simple finger foods. Don’t burden yourself with having to serve elaborate meals to tons of guests. The Super Bowl’s all about simple, filling, and fatty foods like wings, fries, sliders, weenies, nachos, and other types of bite-sized goodness.
Compartmentalize the space. Designate one, preferably large space as the game room and another space as an alternative hang-out spot for those who want to talk away from the din of the television. You can also have one room act as the kid zone and have an adult supervise it. It’s important to plan out how each space will be used beforehand or things could get a bit chaotic.
Decorate. Whether you get them at a local party store or craft them yourself, decorations are certainly going to make your party livelier. Get some linens and paper poms. If you have a favorite team, use their colors as a theme. If you really want to impress and get everyone in the spirit, make or buy banners.
