Tips for Your Superbowl Party
The countdown is officially on for the Super Bowl, and between your snack foods and your game day guest list; you think you’re ready, right? Where’s everyone going to sit? Is the TV large enough? Preparing for the Super Bowl doesn’t have to be this stressful; in fact, the preparation can be just as fun as the game itself! Here’s how you can get your home ready to ensure you and your guests can watch all the commercials and touchdowns.
Most Super Bowl parties will have your typical finger foods and beverages, but be sure to check for any allergies or special dietary needs of your guests in advance. Ask them before hand for any suggestions or alternatives, making sure there is enough for a few people to ensure no one is feeling isolated. Offering a variety of beverages, and set them up in an area away from the television. There’s nothing worse than missing a touchdown when someone is standing in front of the screen grabbing a snack.
Gather Guests in Alternate Rooms
Even though the bulk of your guests will want to be in front of the television watching the game, there may be some guests who just thoroughly enjoy the company and camaraderie of the group environment but wish to be in a separate space. If the weather is nice, set up entertaining spaces outside or even in an adjacent living room if you have the space. Music, board games, a separate television where guests can mingle and have conversations.
Ask for Assistance
As enjoyable as entertaining may be for some, the preparation and everything beforehand can be a big task and can be stressful sometimes. If you’re planning on hosting a large party, delegate friends and family to help with food, décor, and setting up so it takes some of the stress from your shoulders. To cut back on the work and cost of food preparations, ask that guests each bring a main dish, side dish or drinks. The more help you get, the quicker everyone will enjoy a great time once the game begins!
The Super Bowl only happens once a year, so prepare your home for it and enjoy the big game! Use these tips and make this year’s Super Bowl party the best yet!
