So You're Throwing a Super Bowl Party?!?

It's that time of year.... Super Bowl Sunday is right around the corner- and whether you are planning your own party or attending someone else's, we've compiled a bunch of fun and unique ideas to make your party stand out from all the rest!!  (If you're a guest at a party, WOW others when you bring one of these awesome treats/ideas with you!!

And be sure to read all the way to the bottom of this post- where you will find FREE SUPERBOWL PRINTABLES (courtesy of MJ Paperie)

Other than watching football (of course!), the Superbowl is about getting together with family and friends- eating delish food, drinking refreshing drinks and watching the commercials, too!  Putting together a menu is super simple- finger foods and munchies are the way to go... with an assortment of options being key!!  Here are a few classic options:

Pigs in blankets

Tortilla chips and dips (fresh salsa, salsa con queso, spinach artichoke dip)

Deli platter and rolls


Pizza (homemade personal pan pizzas- you can make your own with various toppings to choose from- or just order from your favorite pizza shop!)

Hot wings (with ranch, blue cheese and celery)

Antipasta display- Assorted  crackers, cheeses, pepperoni, olives, artichoke hearts, roasted red peppers, etc
Fruit bowl

Veggie tray with dip

Here's a REALLY fun idea that we found (if you have the time!!!)... a Food Stadium!!

Cupakes (fun idea- decorate cupcakes with either the Giants or Patriots and put them on opposing sides of the dessert table… then have a “field” in between them (either a sheet cake with green frostin and decorated- or if you want more formal- a centerpiece of grass!!!) 


And Signature Drinks in addition to beer are a fun way to incorporate your theme (and offers a yummy alternative for those non-beer drinkers!):
