Depending on the size of your guest list, you may want to send invitations/evites to determine how much food and beverage to prepare. Your starting time should be one to two hours before the opening kick-off.
Strategize your layout. Depending on the size of your home or event space, dedicate a lounge area for the TVs. Arrange a separate area for the children who, based on their age may not be interested in the game. A third area should be established for the food and beverage. Make sure it’s near the game but not too close.
Prepare heavy appetizers rather than a sit-down meal. It’s best to spread the food about the room rather than staging it in one area to avoid lines. For a large crowd, consider scheduling someone to pass out the food. There are lots of clever ways to create appetizing food in the shape of football designs. Jell-O shooters in the team colors could be a hit.
Add another touch to the activities. Play Super Bowl Commercial Bingo. Find out the commercials ahead of time and create a template. Another game to consider is Super Bowl Trivia. You can create questions about the current Super Bowl or past Super Bowls.
Have Fun and May the Best Team Win!
