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:

  • How many different appetizer dishes: If you have fewer than 10 guests offer 2-3 different types of appetizers. If you are having 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 you’ll need to 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.

Try to balance out the types of dishes that you choose. 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.

Prepare as much food as you can ahead of time so that you have more time to get other things done the day of.

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, etc…
  • Have noise makers available 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. Which means you may want to determine how many you can comfortably sit and then invite accordingly.
