My parents threw a Super Bowl party every year when I was a kid. Great food, great friends and great decorations. I have continued this tradition with my own family. While some years it is big and some years more intimate, it is always a good time.....and it does not have to be time consuming or stressful! Below I have listed my essentials for an easy and fun evening. I love to watch the game, socialize and eat-- NOT be in the kitchen the whole time.
People eat while watching the game and they eat a lot! Which is why it is important to have a variety of items available for kids and adults. Below are a few of my go to foods for the party.
Corn Dip (recipe in blog)
Veggie Platter with Dip
Chicken Tenders (can pick up from Chick fil a on Saturday and reheat)
Pork Sliders (buy already cooked pork from Costco - heat up, hawiian rolls and bbq sauce)
Meat/Cheese Tray (add several cheeses and variety of meats)
Wings (pick up at Zaxbys or any local restaurant)
Pigs in a Blanket (Nathan's brand in frozen section of store is a family fav)
Football Cookie Cake, Brownies or Cupcakes
(Publix, Harris Teeter, Giant or any grocery store will have decorated items ready to go)
Football Fruit Bowl
I love decorating for every holiday and event. The Super Bowl is no diffrent. I get my supplies at Party City, Target and Amazon. There are so many creative ways to make your house festive!
Games are fun for everyone, including the guests that may not be interested in the actual football game on TV. I always have little prizes for the winners.
*Super Bowl Trivia
We have all TVs going in our house during the party. Some people love to watch with a large group, while others want to hear more of the commentary. In each area, I have small snacks, chairs and blankets.
