4 Tips For Hosting A Winning Super Bowl Party
January 29 2020
Planning to host a party for the Super Bowl this week? This is the biggest stage for football fans AND party hosts alike! If you’re thinking of hosting a viewing party at your home, get in it to win it with these top 4 party planning tips.
Have something for everyone
Let’s be frank, at every Super Bowl party there are people who’ve come to watch the game and there are people who are there for the commercials…and the snacks! Score big points with your guests by adding some fun games in between the plays. Try a game like “Super Bowl Bingo”! Make (or buy) fun bingo cards inspired by things which may happen in the game or during commercial breaks. Once a guest has bingo, pass out a prize!
You can also pass out a quick quiz that gets filled out before the game begins. Ask easy questions like “Which team will win the coin toss?”, “Which team will score the first touchdown?”, “who will Jennifer Lopez and Shakira bring out to share the stage during the halftime show?”. Give everybody a chance to get some points on the board before the night is over. Pass out goodie bags or prizes to the people with the highest scores at the end of the night.
Extend your spread
One of the best (and most memorable) parts of any Super Bowl party is the food! Guests love game day food and you will need plenty of it! While a typical game day spread includes meatballs, chips, and pizza, step up your game and take your party to the next level with food that your guests will love, like a buffet of homestyle sides, and mouthwatering drumsticks from Cowboy Chicken!
You’ll also want to stock up on plenty of drinks for your crew to wash all that good food down with. While beer is the obvious football beverage staple, be sure to keep plenty of water, lemonade, iced tea, soft drinks and even fun, non-alcoholic options available for designated drivers and guests who don’t drink spirits.
Show your team spirit
Even if your favorite team didn’t make the big game this year, you can make the party experience even better by rooting for your guests’ favorite team and making it your party theme. Poll your guests prior to the gathering and choose the team with the majority votes as the house favorite. Decorate in the team colors with streamers and balloons and even face paint for you and your guests. Guests will feel the excitement as soon as they walk through the door.
Give everyone access to the game
What’s a Super Bowl party without the game? Your friends and family have gathered for food, fun, and football! Make sure everyone has a seat and a clear view to watch the game (and commercials) in comfort. You’ll want your guests to see all the action so plan out your setting in advance and be sure to have plenty of chairs and cushions on hand so that everyone (even you) can have a place to relax and cheer.
If you find yourself with too many people in a single room, move some of your extra TVs around your home to give your party a sports bar feel. After all, people are going to be coming-and-going to and from the viewing area to the food stations. Make sure they don’t miss a minute of the excitement.
We want to make sure that your Super Bowl Party is the talk of the town even after the last play of the big game. If you’re hosting a viewing party at your home, let your friends at Cowboy Chicken handle your hungry football fans. Give us a call or visit us online to check out our catering menu.
