Super Bowl Feast!


It’s that time of year again! Super Bowl Sunday! Even if you’re not into watching the game, it’s a great excuse to host a fun gathering! How can you resist good times with friends and family, overload on food & drinks, enjoy an awesome half time performance from The Black Eyed Peas, and watch those infamous commercials!

Here are a few tips for a fun and cost-friendly party…

Decorations:
Instead of buying napkins, plates, and balloons with team logos on them, which could easily get pricey, decorate your party with team colors! Black, gold, and white for the Pittsburgh Steelers, and green, gold, and white for the Green Bay Packers. Balloons and streamers are always fun! Another way to make your party more festive is to display some props like footballs, helmets and pom poms! We got inspired from this awesome set up by stilettosetsports.com

Games:
The “Football” game! Hand out football pins as your guests arrive. Whoever says the word “football” must give up their pin to the person who catches them. Whoever collects the most pins at the end of the day, wins!
Suggested prizes: a football or a Super Bowl XLV mug.
Or you can play trivia games! For example…
Q: Which football player did Kim Kardashian date?
A: Reggie Bush
