Get pumped for the Super Bowl by hosting a party

By: Tucker Harrington

The NFC and AFC Championship games recently took place, and even though many fans from around the nation won’t be able to watch their hometown teams head to the Super Bowl, it can still be fun to watch the matchup. A great way to get friends and family in the mood for the big game is to host a fabulous Super Bowl Party. Here are a few ways to make your gathering perfect:

Football food
No football or sports party is complete without certain foods. To keep guests happy and full, make sure to whip up a few dips, such as buffalo chicken dip or Mexican dip that friends can pass around easily. Going the extra mile to make chicken wings, ribs or other hearty meals might also sit well with your friends.

Party supplies
Nothing says “It’s Super Bowl Sunday” quite like a few football-inspired decorations, so be sure to stock up prior to kick-off. Purchasing football streamers, banners, plates, napkins and more will help transform your living room into the perfect Super Bowl viewing space.

Test guests’ football knowledge
Let’s face it, when people are excited about an event, they tend to show up early. Keep your guests entertained before the main event by playing a few rounds of football-based trivia. Dole out custom crystal awards to the winner or winners to help them feel like MVP of the day.
