How to Throw the Ultimate Super Bowl Party

Updated on January 6, 2015

When life gives you a Super Bowl, throw a party!

It's officially that time again. Super Bowl XLIX is scheduled to air on February 1st, 2015, and over 100 million people will be in attendance. Some will get the coveted tickets to the game in University of Phoenix stadium, while others will travel to parties all over the world. Join me in the honor of making you the de facto Super Bowl party host for years to come. Grab a beer, pull your chair up close, and lets make you the wing slingin', keg pouring, foam finger toting, party host of the year.

Game Day Grub

Food is a big part of any party, and it's no different for the Super Bowl. When preparing the menu for your party, make the foods easy to chomp while your guests cheer on their favorite team. This means no forks! Try things such as:

  • Chips & Dip
  • Wings
  • Pizza
  • Ribs
  • Nachos
  • Chili Fries
  • Cupcakes
  • Cookies

This is by no means an exhaustive list. The thing to keep in mind is to keep it simple, messy, and fun. Have fun with your foods and snacks, and try to throw some football flair in the mix to give everything a nice Super Bowl feel. Below are a few game time recipes you can give a shot.

Game Day Beverages

The chips and dips are ready, and the wings are in the oven. It's time to prepare the drinks. Remember, not everyone will be drinking alcohol (The designated drivers will be in tow). So, make sure you have options for them as well.

You have two options on drinks. You can either have all the drinks there ready to be consumed, or you can go with the BYOD option ( bring your own drinks). The choice is all yours, young party master!

My favorite idea is to mix the two. Have the non-alcoholic beverages there ready to be consumed, and leave the alcoholic stuff to your guests. It would still be a good idea to have a particular party drink to mix up, and have available. I'll throw some recipes down below.

For the non-alcoholic drinks, here is what I would suggest. Make some punch, buy some sodas, and everyone holding car keys should be happy enough. For those bringing their own alcohol, just make sure you have plenty of room in the fridge, sink, and bathtub, and have plenty of frozen water to throw them in!

The Super Bowl Experience

Well, we have the food. We have the drinks. Hopefully, all the invites have gone out. Next up, you ask? Getting your home transformed into the ultimate Super Bowl experience. Trust me.. this is the easy part. Here are a few things you can do to make this the most talked about party of Super Bowl XLIX!

  1. Dust off the big TV, buy a new big TV (a gift for yourself, right?), or shoot.. go rent a TV for the evening.
  2. Move the furniture closer to the TV, bring in some extra chairs, and check the acoustics of every seat in the house!
  3. Throw out some party d├ęcor. Lets see those football plates, cups, napkins, and banners.
  4. Turn no one away. Everyone loves a good Super Bowl Party: Football fans, foodies, boozers, and more.

Was That the Doorbell?

I think you should have a pretty good idea of how to at least get started with the ultimate Super Bowl Party. Just remember to have fun, initiate at least 2 noise complaints, and try your best to ensure no one gets in the drivers seat while intoxicated. If you do not have the best Super Bowl party you have ever hosted, participated in, or dreamed about, you can blame me.. and your lack of social skills. Please, go forth, answer that doorbell, and get this party started!

Will you be throwing a Super Bowl Party?
