How to Host the Perfect Super Bowl Party

Brooke Thompson

Yelling at the TV, stuffing your face with unhealthy food and drinking a little too much for a Sunday is what the Super Bowl is all about. If you are anything like me, you had no idea the Super Bowl was this Sunday, but my roommate told me we are having people over for it. This means we have to play host. Here is a list of some things that you will need if you are planning a Super Bowl party of your own:

1.) A Television

Of course, this is probably a given. However, to ensure there are no riots, make sure your TV works (volume, cable, etc.), and that you have the channel  the game will come on before everyone shows up at your house.

2.) Food

Wings, dip, pizza or whatever else is easy to get or make will work perfectly for the party. If you plan far enough in advance, you can get the best prices on food. However, if you plan last-minute, I suggest getting something like Little Caesar’s $5 pizza; it is the best bang for your buck.

3.) Drinks

Along with football comes drinking, so make sure you are well-stocked with a variety of drinks. That means soda, too, for the people who have an 8 a.m. on Monday.

4.)  Atmosphere

Make sure you have enough seats and room for all of your guests. I would personally recommend cleaning at least one bathroom as well. As a host, it is important to hide all of your clutter until everyone leaves. This also means personal items are less likely to get broken.

5.) Apparel

Don’t forget to dress for the team you are rooting for, but if you are like me, you don’t have anything with a team logo on it. In that case, dress however you want. It’s your party after all.

All in all, have fun this Super Bowl Sunday. Don’t be a sore loser, and if you don’t pay attention to football, just enjoy watching everyone yell at people who can’t hear them.
