Make Your Super Bowl Party a Real Blast!

Football fans are cranking up for the Super Bowl and maybe you’ve been volunteered to host this year. Sometimes breaking out of the same ole’ mold of entertaining can be difficult. Over the years of hosting, I’ve come up with some tips that might help out your next shindig:

Think Finger Foods

When the whole crew shows up and gets ready to chow down, they most likely don’t want a five-course dinner. Break out the munchies and the appetizers.  Any types of dip will do. My favorite to make is buffalo chicken dip! I use the recipe from Frank’s RedHot.

Personal Touch: For my birthday last year, my husband bought me a wooden tray and dip set from RedEnvelope’s Hostess Gifts page. We use it every time we entertain!

Let’s Talk Turkey


Spice things up with a main course in addition to your assortment of snacks. A deep fried turkey is always our guests’ favorite. My husband loves to man the deep fryer station. It also gives the guys a chance to shoot the breeze while they keep tabs on the bird’s progress.

Try a New Drink Recipe!


You might feel pressured to empty out the liquor store for your big event, but there’s no need to spend a fortune. Something simple we like to make is a “Beer Mojito” You can offer a new take on cocktails with the beer mojito. It’s beer with a twist. See the recipe at!

Everyone Loves the Commercials!


If you’re like me, you pay extra attention to the commercials. A fun game we like to play is picking your favorite commercial after the game – put each entry into a hat and pick the winner. Whoever gets chosen – wins a prize!

Keep it Simple


Stock up on napkins, paper plates, plastic cups, and disposable cutlery, this makes the cleanup less stressful and a lot shorter! Send leftovers home with everyone to make it easier on your refrigerator and stomach.

A Super Bowl party might seem like a big challenge. Take a deep breath, get organized, and you can roll with it. I hope these tips help out! Good luck!
