The Superbowl is coming on February 4! That means it’s time to plan your Superbowl Party! Planning a party can be fun, but it can also be overwhelming. Who should you invite? How many will actually show up? And how do you plan enough snack food? What about the kids? So much to do!
In this post we will discuss how to plan your Superbowl party, make super recipes and find party games to score a touchdown with your guests!
By now you may have a list of guests already RSVP’d. Or you could have a Facebook event set up with all the people you invited.
The problem with Facebook invites is that people seldom look at them and often forget it’s even there. So in order to effectively get a head count for your party, you can reach out to your prospective guests directly. Create a group message and label it “Superbowl at our place!” or something along those lines.
Request that respondents let you know whether they will make it or not in order to help you plan food. A good rule of thumb for making enough food is to make enough for all of your guests. If you have a large crowd, ask that others help with food and supplies like plates, bowls, silverware, napkins and cups.
Having a good flow to your party is very helpful. Set up a snack table, a sweets table and a beverage table to keep a little structure. Section off an area of the house for games, and grab a volunteer to run them for a little while. It also helps to have a schedule for the kids. Pencil out an hour for games, half an hour for snacks, and commercial breaks for free time.
Snack foods are a staple of every Superbowl party. Finger foods and dips also tend to be filling crowd pleasers. Below is a list of fun food from around the web to get you in touchdown territory!
This crack dip, for instance, is always a hit at our house. All you need is 10 minutes and 4 ingredients to make a drool worthy chip dip.
Another huge hit at our house is the infamous 7 layer bean dip. My boyfriend insists that he can’t go without it. This one takes a little more time and ingredients, but it’s worth it!
Looking for something more unique and creative? This football bread bowl makes for a healthier take on Superbowl snacks. The kale-artichoke dip makes for a different kind of snack. If you don’t like make or artichoke, you can change your dip to something like this pizza dip.
Now that we’ve covered dips we can move on to the best part of Superbowl food: finger foods! Finger foods are quick and easy to eat and can satisfy the pickiest of eaters (read: the kids). Here are more ideas for the perfect Superbowl snacks.
Don’t forget the sweets! Food Network has an awesome twist on puppy chow. Or checkout:
