Put your game faces on because it’s almost time for Super Bowl Sunday. Get ready for the New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons’ epic showdown to determine who leaves the big game victorious.
Throwing a Super Bowl bash for this awesome game requires a lot of preparation, strategy, and great execution. First things first, get an accurate headcount to figure out how many people are coming, it’s always encouraged to prepare more than you think is necessary.
The game starts at 6:30 p.m. Eastern Time on Sunday, Feb. 5, 2017, so make sure to have your guests start arriving a little past noon. Once you have an estimate of how many people will come, start choosing the kind of food and drinks you want to feature.
For the most part, a wide variety of pizza and chicken wings will do the trick. Throw in bowls of different snacks like potato chips, popcorn, nachos with dips— basically any easy finger food that will keep everyone content throughout your party— and you’re set.
Keep things simple and effective, make sure to stock up on a plenty of paper plates, cups, utensils, and garbage bags for an easy clean up once all is said and done. Make them easily accessible so that everyone knows exactly where to go throw out their garbage throughout the party.
Now, since there will be a few hours before kickoff, music is key to keeping everyone in a fun mood and enjoying the company around them during that time. You might also want to have a football around for those that want to play catch; it will help bring out the people’s spirit for the game by getting everyone involved.
Overall, make sure to have something for everyone. Those that love football will have fun with everything and guests that don’t will enjoy all the food and drinks available. Not to mention, having great company makes everyone feel welcome.
Make sure to keep everyone involved in conversations, asking who they think will win and even asking everyone trivia questions about the Super Bowl. Keeping everyone feeling like they’re a part of your party is key to having everyone leaving happy.
