7 Must Haves For Hosting A Perfect Superbowl Party
It's that time of the year again, ladies and gentlemen. It's Superbowl week and we couldn't be more thrilled about it. Now that COVID-19 is not spreading like wildfire, we can enjoy getting together in big groups guilt-free again. There are a few things that unite us as much as sporting events. In the United States, there's no other yearly event like the Superbowl. Millions of fans get together to enjoy the game and have a great time. In this blog post, we'll be talking about seven must have essentials for hosting the perfect Superbowl party.
Food / Snacks
This is likely to be the most important factor of having a great Superbowl party. Food is shared and enjoyed by everyone at the party so it's crucial to get this item covered. The most popular foods to eat during the Superbowl are pizza and wings. Make sure you have a variety of types of these two to suffice for everyone's taste preference. You can't forget about the dipping sauce!
This is almost always a given in party planning. Are you looking to impress your guests with your new margarita mixer? Or you want to play it safe and have a few essentials and have your guests bring their own drinks? Of course, it's important not to get too crazy with this element. This is a party after all, not a three ring circus. You don't want your guests getting sick or having an accident from over drinking. It's okay if you decide to have beer or wine coolers available in the fridge but if it doesn't feel necessary then stick with other options like soda or water instead of alcohol.
If your guests are going to be sitting down then they're going to need somewhere comfortable to do that. Invest in spectator benches. These are great to put against the wall so people can recline on the wall and watch the game comfortably. Spectator benches offer cup holders on each side as well as storage space underneath. Perfect to keep your game room essentials stored away nice and neatly. Spectator benches can fit three people comfortably, make sure you also have plenty of bar stools and chairs available for everyone invited.
This game room classic keeps the competitive momentum going after the Superbowl ends. Dartboard cabinets are great to keep the game room looking neat, but also offer dartboard storage space. Make unforgettable memories happen with this ace under your sleeve. Remember that the most unforgettable moments happen when you least plan it. This entertainment piece will be a welcomed surprise to your guests and a great conversation topic for the national hangover day (Monday after Superbowl).
In order to facilitate drink serving and great hosting, bar carts are the ultimate item for throwing the perfect party. Carts are great to assign specific areas for bar tending and snack serving. Bar carts with casters are popular because they lock the cart into secure position that makes it harder for spills and accidents to happen. Make sure you take advantage of making your bar cart an excellent accent piece for your home.
Projectors and Screens
Turn your living room to a theater by setting up a projector in front of your flat screen for easy viewing access. If a projector is not an option, make sure you set up the TV somewhere that everyone can see the game. Surround system is always a plus since it enhances the viewing experience and makes you feel as if you were in the first row (only with replays available).
Beer Pong Table
An absolute must have for nearly every party in the US. This is a college student's favorite. A lot of hosts get creative with this game and even organize small tournaments for the big game. Make this a fun evening filled with laughs and keep the competitive juice flowing before and after the game. This game is usually a safe haven for people who don't normally watch football. Keep this in mind for your guests.
In the end, the Superbowl should be enjoyed and watched responsibly and with respect to others. Please be considerate and have a designated driver / ride share app back up for this special day.
