Super Bowl Party Tips: 10 Must-Haves For Your Super Bowl Soiree

In light of the upcoming Super bowl, there are probably a million and one things going through your head. For instance, things like “I can’t believe the Patriots are in” or “The halftime show is going to suck too, so I’m not sure if I should even watch.”

Even if this year’s Super Bowl matchup isn’t as exciting to you as Super Bowls in year’s past, there is still something to look forward to–the party.

Besides the fact that this is one of the biggest events of the year, the Super Bowl party has potential to be the best of the year. In order to reach that level, there are 10 things that every party must have to be totally and completely amazing.

1. Two compelling teams (or a host-provided reason to pay attention)

We are just going to throw this one out this year since the Patriots made it. Irrelevant. But don’t worry friends, there is a light at the end of this tunnel. Setting up a pool or squares or something that allows your guests to lose a little money is always a good idea.

2. Great, football-loving friends

You obviously don’t want to watch the game by yourself. We all know that booing Tom Brady is much more fun when you have friends by your side.

Side note: Inviting “friends” that would rather plunge their eyes out with a fork than watch the game is probably not a good idea.

3. Good snacky food

To be more specific: chips and dip. There is nothing more satisfying than a good tortilla chip loaded with salsa after a big TD.

Also, don’t underestimate the power of a good mini-wiener on a stick.

4. Plenty of seating

This is really a must. If you are going to have 20 people over, you better have 20 good seats.

Nobody wants to be stuck in the back corner or squeezed in next to the sweaty super-fan that stinks from all of his jumping-up-and-down cheering. Yuck.

5. At least a 42” high def TV

This could vary slightly, but it’s obvious you want a good size screen to watch Tom Brady eat turf.

6. An awesome halftime show (or host-provided entertainment)

Once again, we are just going to disregard this one for obvious reasons. This could be a time for second half bets…or 52 card pickup. Anything is better than the scary sight we call Madonna.

7. BEER

Okay, let’s be honest. I don’t think many of us could remember a Super Bowl without it.

It consoles us when the wrong team wins, and celebrates with us when the Patriots lose. It is a memory taker, but a party maker.

A keg would not be out of the question.

8. A plunger

This is not the most pleasant item, but you will be thanking your lucky stars that you have one after crazy super-fan spends the whole halftime in the bathroom after too many wieners on a stick.

9. Red Solo cups

It is a new rule that every party must have these. Thank country music.

Besides, it’s a good excuse (if you really need one) to get a keg.

10. Surround sound

There is nothing more annoying than someone having a side conversation in the middle of the living room while everyone is trying to watch the game. Make sure it goes loud enough to drown out their convo and gives them the hint to go to the kitchen…or go home.

So now that you know what you need to have at your Super Bowl party, be excited!

I know the whole world was depressed after the Packers loss and the Patriots won, but at least now you have something to look forward to.

What other elements of a good Super Bowl party do you consider to be must-haves?
