Invitations, Food & Decorations
Ask and they shall come (well, if someone else doesn’t get to them first). Get the word out about your party early with themed
invitations or free online invitations. The great thing about throwing a Super Bowl party is that it’s a casual affair. Therefore, with a little bit of effort you can easily go from not-too-exciting chips and salsa to a smorgasbord that will satisfy everyone’s appetite and earn you culinary praise.
For the party-thrower who does not want to (or can’t or really shouldn’t) cook, the best option is to buy trays of cold-cuts, cheeses, snacks, pre-cut veggies, ready-made dip, cookies and brownies. On the day of the party, order a few pizzas, sub-size sandwiches, some finger food appetizers and you’re done.
For those who can cook — remember, the easier, the better. Super Bowl parties are much more about snacking during intervals rather than formal meals. Therefore, bring hot food out in waves rather than all at once.
For the best selection of perishable foods, shop early in the morning or the night before. Keep a frozen pizza or two in the fridge in case food delivery is delayed or a no-show.

Plenty of soda and water should be available for people to drink. For guests
of drinking age, nothing is better than a cold beer though Jello shots are also
an easy and popular option. Kegs can save cost, space and clean-up time. Bottles
and cans provide variety. Go the extra step and grab a few bottles of wine and
a few varieties of hard liquor.
And as always, don't let friends
drink and drive — get them a ride by calling 1-800-taxicab!

A good host also takes into consideration those who may not come
just for the game (a travesty, but it happens). Set up an area or
room with board games, movies and magazines.
