Are you ready for some football?! The countdown to the Super Bowl is underway and it’s the perfect time to start planning a football gathering with your friends. The big game kicks off February 4th 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.

Preparation is Key

Get out your playbook and follow the best game plan before kick-off. Clear out the main room, store any items that may be in the way or that could be at risk of being broken, and make sure you have the basic hardware-plenty of cups, plates, and napkins.

Bring the Stadium to Your Home

You may not be in Minneapolis for the game, but that doesn’t mean you can’t bring the exhilarating stadium atmosphere to your apartment. Decorate your home with some creative Super Bowl décor—even the simplest dollar store items can be turned into impressive displays. Wear your team’s jersey, set out a few footballs to toss, or craft some yellow flags to throw. Buzz Feed also offers plenty of great tips for making the most out of the occasion!

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 its wings, pizza, mini sandwiches, veggies, and dip, or some other assortment, you can’t go wrong with offering a variety of indulgent food options for your guests. Want to take your menu a bit outside the box? Serve a local food item from the cities of the teams playing.

Create a Betting Pool

While football is fun, the big game can be made even 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

Whether you’re a die-hard football fan, or just there for the festivities, everyone can appreciate the commercials. Have some fun with them this year—vote with your guests on your favorite commercials and see if there’s a consensus!
