Super Bowl XLIX is just around the corner and now is the time to plan for your best party!! Even if you aren’t a Patriots or Seahawks Fan, you can still plan a FUN party and let’s face it, it’s a good reason to have one! Friends, Family, Food and Good Times! What’s not to love!
First off, start with a themed display; I like using green tablecloths for the “football field.” Team colored cups, silverware, plates, napkins are also a good idea! Football themed platters for arranging food are perfect too! Make a menu for your guests so when they arrive, they know exactly what they have to choose from. Use little individual chalk board signs for a cute display!
When I think of football, I think of easy appetizers, finger foods, dips, chips, and of course one must have dessert! Make beef sliders, chicken on a stick, bbq meatballs, or bacon wrapped shrimp; foods most all people love! Hummus with assorted chopped veggies for those who want to eat a bit more healthy or make fruit kabobs, veggie kabobs or string mozzarella balls, cherry tomatoes, and olives together! Bite-size goodness! Buffalo chicken dip is always a huge WIN for my parties; pair it with pita chips, tortilla chips, or even crackers.
Brownies make a good, quick, easy to eat dessert and how cute to make them into football shapes! Use football themed cupcakes liners and toppers for the kids..and adults, I mean, who doesn’t love cupcakes!! For beverages, turn your sink into an ice bucket or find colorful plastic team colored totes to hold your beer, soda, or water! I think candy is always a good munchie to have on hand to; team colored m&m’s are a must!! You can buy individual colored m&m’s at most party stores too!
Make it the best party yet!!
