Get ready for the Superbowl with good drinks, good food, and an appealing environment, even the men will appreciate!
Decor: Keep the decor simple, you want the game to be the main focus point. You also don’t want to over do the theme of the team colors. Rooting for your favorite team, does not mean your home has to be decked in colored streamers and tacky football posters. Try arranging some flowers with your team color of choice and some candles to add to the ambiance. Turn your serving trays into mini football fields of wheat grass to serve your appetizers on. I just love the football-themed centerpiece idea from InStyle Parties
What to Pour
The Kickoff Drink: (Serves 12) Combine 1 and 1/2 cups tequila, 3/4 cup triple sec, 7 and 1/2 cups fresh orange juice and 6 tbsp fresh lime juice. To serve, add ice to a pitcher and pour into glasses rimmed with coarse salt. Garnish with lime wheels.
Beer Station: Set up your own mini beer taste testing area, with imported or locally brewed beers served in mini glasses. I love trying new organic beers from my local Trader Joes. Reasonable prices for unique and delicious beers and wines.
Hor d’oeuvre: Fancy finger foods, such as sugar and spice pecans, tortilla chips with jalapeno-bean dip, salsa and guacamole.
You can’t have a Superbowl party without wings, spice up the traditional buffalo wings by going with Asian honey glazed wings sprinkled with chopped pecans and assorted veggies and dipping sauce.
Main Course: Mini crab-cake sliders, with avocado and a sweet and spicy jalapeño sauce! Served with homemade baked potato wedges sprinkled with rosemary, olive oil, salt and pepper! Yum!
Half-Time Desert Bar:
Set up a mini ice cream sundae station with several flavored ice creams and toppings of choice.
Who doesn’t love a party favor to take home! It’s a great way to say thanks for coming and something to remind them of the great party you threw!
What a unique and clever way to showcase and hang your jewelry, you save space and create a great conversation piece. Showcase your grandma’s pearls or that unique vintage brooch you loved, but never had the right thing to wear with it. You are creating art with your most precious and glamorous jewels! It’s also a great DIY project. I love it! These can be found on Etsy.com for $38.
