What’s the best day of the year, you may ask? It’s not a national holiday, but it might as well be. You guessed it— it’s the Super Bowl! If it’s your turn to host the party, don’t sweat it. This guide will tell you everything you need to know about hosting a Super Bowl party that will go down in history.
Let’s start with the essentials:
Football is popular for two reasons: it’s a great sport, and with that great sport comes great food. Impress your guests with the works. From wings and sliders to chili and dips, there’s no shortage of delicious game day foods that will put everyone in the Super Bowl spirit. Looking of some recipes? Here are a couple of crowd pleasers that will surely be a touchdown:
Pigs in a Blanket
- 1 twelve ounce pack of sausage links
- 1 sheet of frozen puff pastry
- Your favorite dipping sauces
Step 1: Preheat your oven to 400° F. Cut your sausages up into small pieces, starting lengthwise in quarters then width wise in halves. Then cut your pastry sheet into strips that are about 3 inches long and 1 inch wide.
Step 2: Roll the sausages into the pastry strips, transfer to a baking sheet, and cook for 15-20 minutes.
Guacamole and Chips
- 5 avocados
- 1/2 red onion
- 1 cup fresh cilantro
- 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
- Seasoning to taste
- 1 bag tortilla chips
Mix all of the ingredients into a bowl, ensuring the avocados are mashed until creamy. Serve with tortilla chips on the side.
Once you’ve come up with all of your tasty snacks, don’t forget the refreshments!
Seating is essential to any Super Bowl party. Ramp up your media room with a sectional that will fit everyone! The Seatcraft Niagara is made with Top Grain 7000 leather, comes with options for either power or manual recline, contains cup holders with blue LED lighting, and is a comfortable fit for all your football fan friends!
If you’re looking for a simple, modern-looking couch check out the Seatcraft Heavenly, which comes in three neutral colors. The 50/50 Goose Feathers & Fibers will have your guests feeling like they’re sitting on a cloud.
Be sure to set the room up so that everyone can comfortably see the one thing that really matters on game day— the big screen. Whether you are using a projector, flat screen, make sure that your seating is properly arranged to avoid any blackout areas for viewing.
One helpful way to make sure everyone has a spot and a good view is by incorporating wall-hugging seating into your media room. This seating can be installed as close as 5 inches away from the wall while still being able to recline. One great model with the wall-hugger feature is the Seatcraft Millennia. Not only is it made with top grain 7000 leather, it will save space in your house and solve any seating or set up problems you might have!
Another important thing to test out before game day is your audio. No one wants to see a halftime show without sound! Turn everything on the morning of to make sure it’s running properly.
Add your own personal touch by incorporating:
If you’re rooting for one of the teams playing in this year’s Super Bowl, decorate your house accordingly! Use that team’s colors for all your party supply needs like paper cups, plates, or napkins.
Make things interesting between your guests by incorporating some friendly bets throughout the game. This will keep everyone’s eyes on the screen, not only the big football fans. Whether you’re betting on a player, winning team, halftime show, or what color the gatorade bath is at the end, putting a little bit of money into the mix will have everyone on the edge of their seats. You can even place some friendly wagers on the commercials. After all, for some people they are the highlight of the Super Bowl!
Remember, no matter how you host your party for the big game, you’re guaranteed to have a good time as long as you’re in good company and good spirits. That being said, is it ever really a party without nachos?
