Hi Everyone! I am in the process of planning our Super Bowl Party.  We have hosted Superbowl parties many times so I thought I would share my tips for organizing a Super Bowl Party with you.  Even if you are not interested in the game, it is a nice excuse to get together with friends and family.

Organizing A Superbowl Party

Guest List – You want to ensure that everyone that you invite can see the game, so you will want to consider that when you plan your guest list. You may want to move TV’s in your house (if your cable/network allows) so that there are additional viewing areas.

Decorations –  There are tons of ideas online, but it is ok to keep it simple too.  You can go with a green and white football theme or go with the colors of the teams playing this year.  If you do not have a green tablecloth, you can make a runner out of some green felt and white tape.  You can download football clip art and team logos from clip art websites and hang then up around your table.

Menu – This is the fun part.  The Super Bowl is a great excuse for a potluck. Appetizers and finger food are great because grazing goes really well with a football game. A buffet set up works best and I usually like to include sandwiches and individual serving options. I also include raw vegetables, cheese and nuts to the menu as well.  For recipe ideas, including the ones pictured here, check out the Recipe File.


If you put out nuts or small candies, be sure to put out serving cups or spoons so that people are not digging their hands into the bowls. I love my friends, but this is flu season after all, and germs are something we do not want to be sharing.

This is not the time to serve bright red fruit punch. Accidents are more likely to happen at these type of viewing parties. Put breakable items in arms reach away for the day.

Contests You can make the day more fun with some games.  You can hold a contest for the person who guesses the final score (without going over), wins a score-based football pool, or wins a Super Bowl trivia game that you developed before the party.  A small prize can go to the winner.

Activities For the kids, you may want to enlist the help of some older kids to help coordinate some activities for the children that may not be interested in the ball game for more than 5 minutes.  Setting up some activities, movies or game centers will help to provide the younger crowd entertainment.
