Tips for Hosting a Super Bowl Party
  • Seating is Important
    Have two separate sitting areas. One for those who watch the game and one for those who don’t. There is nothing more annoying than trying to watch the game with a bunch of people talking nonstop and not paying attention to the game.

    Equally it sucks to be shushed nonstop if you are the talker who just came for the food, betting games, drinks and commercials.
  • Keep the Decor Simple
    I try and get things I can reuse year after year, and that are simple. A banner, a few foam fingers, and some small footballs are perfect. Green, white, and light brown to emulate the colors of the field. Here are my simple go to decor items for my Super Bowl gatherings.

    TIP: Get balloons the morning of that are the colors of the two teams. Green, black, and white groupings and red, black, and white groupings this year. 
  • Betting Games
