10 Super Bowl party ideas from game-day food to football decor
From decor to food and drinks to games, this party is sure to be a touchdown!
Every year for the big game, I love to go all out for my guests! From decor to food and drinks to games, this party is sure to be a touchdown!
SUPER BOWL PARTY DRINKS
So, for the LA Rams we have the Rammer Jammer (Delish's Yellowhammer Slammer, renamed). Warning: This one is a doozy! I like to serve it in a highball glass with black-and-white referee stickers and whistles as garnishes.
2 oz. Vodka
2 oz. Rum
1 oz. Amaretto
4 oz. Orange Juice
7 oz. Pineapple Juice
Mix vodka, rum, Amaretto, orange juice and pineapple juice.
Serve in a 20-ounce cup over ice.
Dark & Stormy
The hot drink right now is the Dark & Stormy but this one is a nod to the Pats. This ginger beer, Bantam, is from New England.
3/4 ounce fresh lime juice from 1 to 2 limes
2 ounces black rum (preferably Gosling's)
4 ounces ginger beer (preferably Bantam)
Lots of ice
Pour ingredients into empty can of ginger beer, fill with lots of ice and top with upside-down mini rum bottle.
SUPER BOWL PARTY DECOR
Be a part of the big game and run through your very own “sideline” banner! You can recreate this at home by getting an extra-large King-size bed sheet. Just paint any image on it, cut it in half and Velcro the pieces back together. You can then hang it in a doorway with command hooks. It is so fun, so easy and it will get everyone in the mood to party.
I covered the table with AstroTurf that you can get from Home Depot. So easy, inexpensive and festive! These wooden numbers add some great dimension to your table and you can get them from any craft store. I just spray painted them white and hot glued them to Popsicle sticks. You can arrange them in any order, but if you want to get really into theme — you can use them as your 10-, 20- and 30-yard line markers!
Also, to add height to a table, I repurposed cardboard boxes with spray paint to create a bleacher set-up for the mason jars in the nacho bar (below).
SUPER BOWL PARTY FOOD
People will love your Rams nacho bar. Not only is it a great way to incorporate our football theme with the bleachers and team hats, but it’s also totally personalized and delicious! Use mason jars to fill with nacho toppings. I like to use jalapeños, sour cream, chicken, guacamole, bacon, and cilantro.
Ice Cream Sandwich Footballs
To satisfy your sweet tooth, all you have to do for this treat is buy some classic ice cream sandwiches, use icing to draw the football laces on them, and stick your “play-by-play” Popsicle sticks into them!
SUPER BOWL PARTY GAMES
This is a classic football pool. We have a template you can easily print here, or if you want to have a reusable board for every year, take it to FedEx and get it laminated. You can use dry erase markers to write in the teams and everyone’s names and then you can print some numbers, put some Velcro on the back and then one by one you draw out the numbers. Everyone loves a little friendly competition, and who doesn’t want to earn their bragging rights for the year?
