I know, we specialize in weddings, BUT Details by Margaret loves any reason for entertaining! So, are you ready for the big game? If you are one of the lucky ones who has a big screen TV like me, I am sure all your friends have volunteered your house for the Super Bowl. Am I right?!? Well, no need to fear. Details is here to give tips on how to have an awesome Super Bowl party without breaking the bank!
#1 Invite your guests (if they haven’t already invited themslves!) Evite.com is a great (FREE) way to email out cute invites letting your guests know the details. When inviting guests, consider how much seating you have near the TV. This is one game where everyone will want to watch and you want your guests comfortable.
#2 Plan your menu. Potluck is a great way to keep the budget down while still having amazing food. Everyone has a favorite “football dish.” Ask guests to bring their beverage of choice as well as a dish to share with the others. To keep from having repeats of the same item, make a wish list of what you are looking to have served and have guests reply on evite.com with what they are bringing.
Hot dips (such as a Wing Dip)
Cold dips (such as Guacamole)
Spicy dips (such as Rotel with ground beef)
Sliders (mini burgers with cheese and bacon)
Taquitos or Mini Tacos
Cheese and Sausage platters
Cut-up veggies (carrot sticks, celery, broccoli and green peppers)
Wings ‘N Things
Bonelesss Buffalo Wings
Honey BBQ Wings
Celery sticks, ranch, bleu cheese and plenty of wet naps
Football Cup Cakes
#3 Presentation. I am all about creative decor and serving pieces! This is where you can really stand out! You already have a theme so the rest is easy. Party City currently has Super Bowl gear on sale!! I got Saints and Colts plates with football napkins. This way my guests can eat off of a plate with the team they are cheering for. Not all of your guests will bring a serving platter for their dish. Be prepared! Target has cute football serving pieces in thier dollar bins! I have this platter. You can get a couple to use for hot or cold snacks.
