Super Bowl Sunday is upon us and so are the parties.
Each year the biggest sporting event of the year is a staple in American culture and fans of football, good commercials and halftime shows come together to hope the Patriots will not be participating. Here are some tips and tricks to hosting the best super bowl party.
It is all about the dips
Every good super bowl party is judged by its choice of dips. Do not skimp on these and get creative. Buying a pre-made dip from Walmart is never a bad idea, but making one homemade will be an automatic touchdown for any host. There is no such thing as too much dip.
Turn the game into a game
Make a drinking game out of watching the halftime show, or even the game in general. Each time there is a field goal, Demi Lovato’s voice cracks during the National Anthem or J.Lo has a halftime malfunction, raise a glass.
Make sure you have all the necessities. Drinks will be flowing, people will be eating and there is bound to be one angry fan that knocks something over when something goes wrong. Don’t forget those napkins.
Be on brand
The great thing about the super bowl is that it is different every year, unless Tom Brady has anything to do with it. Switch up team colors, make sure to include both teams and get festive with some football décor.
Treat the commercials as their own entity
Sadly, the commercials cannot be skipped. Thankfully, they are almost always fun to watch. Keep a ranking list of each commercial and see which corporation reigns supreme.
Make it a potluck
Have people bring their favorite dish to ease the stress when it comes to game time. This way the host is not in charge of everything and can sit down to enjoy everything super bowl with their guests.
