Super Bowl Planning Tips
The average Super Bowl Game lasts about 4 hours plus 30 minutes before the game. I have a few tips to help you determine how much to make:
- For fewer than 10 guests offer 2-3 different types of appetizers.
- For more than 10 guests add another dish for every 5-8 more people.
How much per person. When appetizers are the main food at an event, plan to serve about 10-12 pieces per person for a two-hour party. Add about 5 more pieces per person for every hour after.
Balance. Try to balance out the types of dishes chosen. Have a mix of warm and cool, light and heavy, proteins and produce. Vary the colors and textures as well.
Watch for sales. Grocery stores will often reduce the pieces of your favorite game-day foods.
Make ahead of time. Prepare as much food as you can ahead of time to allow for last-minute party preparations.
- Keep perishable items and dipping sauces such as Ranch Dressing and veggie dips refrigerated until right before serving.
- A slow cooker can also be very helpful with keeping dips and appetizers warm during your event.
Hosting the ultimate Party
Here are a few tips to help you plan the ultimate Super Bowl Party:
- Decorate in the team colors with streamers and balloons. If you have dual supporters, decorate half the room for one team and the other half for the other team.
- Have face paint, foam fingers, hats, and other fun activities or items.
- Noisemakers are a great way to celebrate touchdowns.
- Inviting children? Have a separate area for kids to play. Put on an age-appropriate movie that will keep their attention. Have football-themed coloring sheets or other activities.
- Most Important: make sure everyone has a seat and a clear view to watch the game. Determine how many you can comfortably sit and then invite accordingly.
