Super Bowl XLVIII Party Ideas

  I can't wait for Super Bowl XLVIII! Yes, even the Party Girl, notorious for her lack of sports knowledge, loves the Super Bowl. Why? It's a great party and a great day to celebrate with family and friends! Lots of food, drinks, party decorations, games and fun all in one day.

There are a ton of great Super Bowl XLVIII party supplies on the market to make your celebration fun and simple (and inexpensive) to put together! Enjoy and Go Browns! (They will be in the Super Bowl this year, right?)

Super Bowl XLVIII Invitations
Invitations are important because your guests may be getting several invites to Super Bowl parties. You want them to know yours will be the absolute best, right? Then wow them with a great invite! Send the invitations as early as you can manage so you are first on people calendars too!

Super Bowl XLVIII Decorations and Party Supplies
Greet your guests with a personalized Super Bowl banner. If you're in a warm weather city, you can tie balloons off the sign as well. They are inexpensive, but will have big impact.

Hang football lights on a string around the room or across a buffet table. I would buy streamers in the colors of the two teams playing in the Super Bowl. These can be hung across the ceiling. Or, get balloons in the same colors and have a few bouquets for each time scattered around. (Most party stores will have Super Bowl XLVIII Mylar balloons and Mylar balloons with the logos from the teams playing that would be great in the bouquets). Or go with these great football shaped balloons.

I'd hand everyone (well, everyone over 21) a beer as they walk in - dressed in a ref's shirt drink holder. They'll get a laugh from that one!

Super Bowl Table Decorations and Menu
We all know Super Bowls are about football as much as eating! Food isn't tough. Go buffet style. Here's my mouthwatering menu:

Appetizer/Snacks/Dinner
  • Nachos - fully loaded!
  • Potato chips and onion dip
  • Pretzels and other "snacks" - Doritos, Cheetos, etc.
  • Mozzarella Sticks
  • Mini pigs in a blanket - get a 40 pack (or 2!) of frozen dogs at the grocery store.
  • Veggies and dip
  • M&Ms in the colors of the teams playing (you can get these at the M&Ms website)
  • Wings
  • Pizza
Drinks
Dessert
  • Assorted Cookies and Brownies (everyone will be so full by now, you won't need much!)

Super Bowl Activities

A Super Bowl Pool Board betting game is perfect for your Super Bowl XLVIII party. Use ours or create your own. Here's how it works:
  • Sell each square on the grid for a set amount of money. Play big or small.
  • Numbers 0-9 are assigned randomly across the rows and down the columns after bets are places and squares are bought. (Draw out of a hat for the order of numbers for each row and column)
  • The numbers beside each team name represent the last digit in the score for that team. For example, if the score were "AFC team 14- NFC team 3", then who ever's name is in the square under the "4" of the AFC team and the "3" of NFC would win.
The betting board is a great way to keep people interested in the game!

We also like Super Bowl Commercial Bingo! Create a blank bingo board and pass them out to your guests. Have them fill out the rows and columns with products/companies they think will have commercials during the game. Or, different concepts for commercials (dogs playing poker, horses on the internet, etc). As the commercials are aired, people get to mark off the boxes on their boards that are correct! The first to get Bingo wins a prize!

Super Bowl Party Favors
At the end of the game, you can pass out a favor to your guests to thank them for coming. Here are a few of the custom favors and
You can throw your party favors in one of Party411's personalized Super Bowl XLVIII favor bags!
 
Have a great Super Bowl Party!
