Lately more and more of my friends are really getting into football. Even if you don’t completely understand the game, that’s no reason not to have a superbowl party filled with food, drinks, football and fun.
If you are planning to host a Super Bowl party this year, here are ten tips that you will need to know to achieve a successful event.
Tip number one
If you plan on serving alcohol, collect the keys from guests as they enter your house. You may experience some reluctance at first but they will thank you later.
Tip number two
Everyone attending your party may not be a football fanatic. To avoid one person controlling the television, set up multiple television sets.
Tip number three
Serve easy finger foods, chips, dips, chicken wings, pizza, and/or heroes. Make sure you have enough of each item.
Tip number four
Decorate with team colors and football related items. Although superbowl is a guy’s affair, there is no need to skimp on the presentation of the party. Make it “girl” friendly by adding your own special touch.
Tip number five
Keep it fun by playing games throughout the night.
Tip number six
Set up a separate kid friendly room (away from the alcohol!) with a television, snacks and plenty of pop.
Tip number seven
Supply plenty of napkins and toothpicks. Finger foods can be messy and the last things on guest’s minds are keeping the house neat and stain free.
Tip number eight
Be sure there is plenty of sitting and standing room in view of the television.
Tip number nine
Have plenty of pop on hand and offer coffee halfway though the party.
Tip number ten
Have extra cash on hand to cover bets and for cab fare for your friends. Be responsible for all your guests, and don’t allow anyone to drive home drunk.
