The biggest game of the season is just around the corner. While it is all about the touchdowns and tackles, it is also about getting together with friends and family with food, drinks and all that game day excitement. With the excitement in the air, many of us want to host the ultimate super bowl party, but at a minimal cost. Here are some ideas that can help you keep the costs under control and still have lots of Super Bowl fun.
Super Bowl Fun on a Budget
Bring the party home!
Restaurants and bars can be over-rated on big game days. So the best bet for a budget friendly super bowl fun starts at your home. Invite your friends and family and ask them to bring a little something over. Everyone can pitch in, bringing a bite to eat and make it a BYOB party. That way you can have a good time and spend much less.
Being the host, you can choose to serve some inexpensive snacks and drinks too! Pick some simple finger foods, chips, and dips and serve them on plates and bowls. If you are up to making some snacks at home, you can also find some easy super bowl appetizers here.
Get your kids involved in creating the party atmosphere.
Get your kids to get crafty, drawing the team logos and decorating the entertainment room! The guests are sure to enjoy and appreciate the unique game day atmosphere. It is inexpensive, unique, and a great way to have some Super Bowl fun with your kids. Also, don’t spend too much money on team-themed cups and plates. Instead, you can buy solid colored plates and cups from the dollar store or the discount party store. If the crowds are larger, then you might want to consider the dishes you already have and escape the cost of paper plates and cups completely.
Have your own halftime show
There is always an extravagant super bowl halftime show to keep you entertained on TV. If that is not sufficient, create your own halftime show with a super bowl trivia or a round of charades related to the game! For the kids, have premade football-shaped cookies to decorate or you can have a scavenger hunt with football-shaped chocolates. It’s going to be a ton of fun!
The more important thing is to have fun, and the fun doesn’t always have to be expensive. You just need a touch of creativity and some outside the box ideas. We hope these tips will give you a head start on planning your super bowl party and may the best team win!
