How to Throw the Ultimate Super Bowl Party
If you’ve been picked to be the host of the Super Bowl party in your social circle, you know how important it is that you make a touchdown with this party. Setting up a Super Bowl party means having a great, big screen TV as well as a comfortable setting. Great food and drinks will round out the need for this to be the best football party of the year. Whether you wish to host the Super Bowl party outside around a fire pit or inside of your living room, here are some features to throw in to make the party the ultimate Super Bowl party.
Fire Up the Grill
One of the easiest ways to prepare all types of foods for everyone to enjoy is to throw them on the grill. Hamburgers, hot dogs, chicken, and fish can all be thrown on the grill and easily made into a meal. Firing up the barbecue grill is one of the quickest ways to prepare a hearty Super Bowl meal for dozens of people at one time. Be sure to put a label on all of the food so that everyone can pick up the meat that they want, and those with allergies or food restrictions know what is on the table for them.
Serve the Food on Stadium Trays
Some of the staple foods of any Super Bowl party are wings of different flavors, macaroni and cheese, chips and dip, sandwiches, and an assortment of desserts. If you want to keep your floors, furniture, and patio clean, purchase lunch trays similar to what the servers in football stadiums would use. Your guests can balance these trays on their laps or sit them anywhere—and without spills or creating rings on your tables from cup moisture. Bonus points for getting stickers printed out for each Super Bowl team and sticking them to the trays.
Bet on QBs with Drinks
Instead of monetary bets for your Super Bowl party, you should make the game a little more fun. Everyone should cast their vote for the team that they are cheering for once they enter your home. When the other team makes a touchdown or scores a field goal, have the other team take a shot. Be sure to have lots of liquor on deck so that there is plenty to choose from. Betting on each team’s quarterback and running back performance with drinks will make the game a lot more fun and less stressful.
Set Up an After Actions Review on the Patio
Hanging out after the Super Bowl to discuss the game is a time-honored tradition. Since the kitchen and living room will be in cleanup mode, it is best to move the party outside. Set up your patio area with patio chairs in a circle around the fire pit. To keep the beers and other refreshments cool, bring out a cooler and sit it behind the chairs. This will provide a relaxing scene to sit around and talk about the game highlights, lowlights, and any player trades that you expect to see in light of the Super Bowl.
