Throw a Chic Super Bowl Party!

Super Bowl Sunday is quickly approaching, and while we may not all agree on whether the Ravens or 49ers should win, we can all agree that Super Bowl Sunday is about much more than just the game… it’s about the party {and the commercials}, of course! So in order to assist you in throwing a chic Super Bowl party, we pulled together some fun and festive food, drink and décor ideas for the occasion. Ready, set, hike!

{THE FOOD}

We love the idea of adding your own flair to classic Super Bowl favorites.  Substitute pizza and basic tacos for a fun flatbread like the fig and prosciutto flatbread shown above {recipe by Todd English} or dry-rubbed salmon tacos with tomatillo-avocado slaw {recipe by Jeff Smith}.  Trust us, they are delicious!

Pretzel sticks, candy and popcorn are great additions for those that enjoy on going munching.  And who doesn't love Angie’s Kettle Corn!?

{THE DRINKS}

Keep the drinks simple.  Beer is a must at a Super Bowl party and for those who aren’t of age, we suggest root beer.  Our favorites: Sam Adams, Stella Artois and Killebrew Root Beer.

For a fun dessert-y drink, we suggest Guinness floats.  Guinness floats are oh-so-yummy and awfully simple to make {Guinness poured over natural vanilla bean ice cream}. Serve them in a mason jar with a striped straw for added flair!

{THE DÉCOR}

Downloadable decorating printouts by Kayd Design are available here:

{Bottle Covers} {Circle labels} {Candy Boxes} {Menu Cards}

The printouts are a fun way to personalize your Super Bowl party. Use them to wrap bottles, decorate jars or straws, make candy boxes and create menu cards! We recommend using cardstock for the printouts; it's easier to work with.

Color coordinate. Try to match the color of the bottle/bottle top to color of the print out. The symmetry of the color combinations adds to the fun of what you're drinking. The hint of brown in the kettle corn, the pretzel rods and the color and shape of the malted milk balls are a subtle nod to a football {at least in our world}.

Create pattern. Make patterns by arranging and aligning your party elements strategically.  We aligned the root beer and beer bottles in a pattern. Be sure to wait to arrange them until right before your party starts… no one likes to drink warm root beer or beer!
