Throwing the Best Super Bowl Party Ever

By Ken Kudra

The big game is coming up. You want to invite everyone over so they can watch it on your new big screen television. Yet you worry about how to set up the big party. Everyone is looking forward to it and you do not want them to be disappointed! Luckily, there are lots of ways to keep the fuss to a minimum with a Super Bowl party.

Remember all those tailgate parties you went to at the stadium during football season? Why not make your Super Bowl party the same way? Set up lawn chairs for extra seating around the TV. Set food out buffet style on the table and let everyone help themselves as they wish. Get a good supply of good quality paper plates and plastic utensils... you will love it when it comes to cleaning up! Invoking the memories of tailgating last fall will help make your party a success.

Supply plenty of cold beverages. Soda, water, and beer will be the easiest to serve as well as what is expected. Keep them cold in chests full of ice. We are invoking that tailgating fun, remember? Screaming and cheering brings on a lot of thirst, so be sure to stock enough!

When it comes to food, think snacks. Every good Super Bowl party is known for its wonderful snack food. Snacks are easy to make and if they get spilled during a great play, they are easy to clean up. Consider foods like nachos, pizza, chicken wings or meatballs... your guests want something they can pop in their mouths and stay in the spirit of the game. If you serve foods like chili or something else that needs a plate or bowl, be prepared in case it gets spilled. Serve up your buffet using platters and crock pots to keep the food ready at hand.

Another Super Bowl party tradition is the giant submarine sandwich. Pile it high with tomato, lettuce, and cold cuts. Surround it with lots of chips and dips to choose from. Other finger foods like sausage rolls and pigs in blankets are easy to make and they taste fabulous. Keep everything simple and fun so you can relax, too.

Not everyone is a big football fan, and it is inevitable that there will be a few who just do not care too much about watching. Let them congregate in a nice corner with lots of goodies to eat so they can visit and have a good time. If some guests are bringing children, set up a play room with toys they can enjoy during the game. Give them some snacks and they will have a great time.

Choosing simple Superbowl party recipes will take the stress off of you and let you enjoy the game and your guests. Prepare as many as you can ahead of time to make it even easier. Plan to space out your food offerings over the course of the day so there is always food available.

On Super Bowl Sunday, you will be able to relax. Well, at least you will be able to join in the fray and cheer for your favorite team. Watching football tends to get rather intense at times. Either way, you will have a great time serving up delicious snacks at your Super Bowl party. - 29857
