Are you ready for some football?! The road to the Super Bowl is in full effect and it is the perfect time to start planning a football gathering with your friends. The big game kicks off February 5th at 3:30 pm and while some essentials like a big TV and ample seating are common knowledge, there are plenty of ways to ensure that this Super Bowl is the best one yet. Check out our tips to throwing the perfect Super Bowl gathering:
Preparation is Key: Get out your playbook and make sure you follow the best game plan before the game kicks off. Clear out the main room, make sure you have plenty of cups, dishes, and napkins, store any items that may be in the way or that could be at risk of being broken.
Bring the Stadium to Your Home: You may not be in Houston for the game, but that doesn’t mean you can’t bring the exhilarating atmosphere of the stadium to your apartment. Decorate your home with some creative Super Bowl décor. Wear your team’s jersey, have a few footballs in the room, or craft some yellow flags to throw.
Can’t Forget the Food: The most crucial element of any Super Bowl gathering (besides the game itself) is the food. Go above and beyond to satisfy those hungry stomachs. Whether it’s wings, pizza, mini sandwiches, veggies and dip, or some other assortment, you can’t go wrong with introducing a variety of food options for your guests.
Create a Betting Pool: While football is fun, the big game can be made much more exciting if there is a little more at stake. Make predictions for the winner, the MVP, or any other statistical category and have some fun prizes for the winners.
Keep the Commercials in Mind: Another huge aspect of the Super Bowl is the commercials, so make sure you don’t miss out! Have some fun with the commercials this year; vote with your guests on your favorite commercials and see if you can pick a specific one as your favorite.
