7 Tips For Throwing The Best Super Bowl Party 2023
Here’s a helpful checklist so you can sit back and relax on the day… knowing your Super Bowl party will be the talk of the town!
Perhaps you’re suddenly stressing over not enough of space after you’ve invited the entire town, plus some! Try rearranging the furniture and repositioning the TV so that the maximum amount of viewers can enjoy the game in comfort. Perhaps add a couple of bean bag chairs that can be stored in the kids room afterwards.
2. VIP guests First!!
Invite your close friends to come early. The ones who mix THE best drinks, the helpful kind and the most friendly to welcome the rest of the guests! Here are some other stress relieving tips so you can actually enjoy your party for a change! →Town & Country’s – How to Be the Best Hostess

4. Why have 1 screen when you could have 2?
That’s right… why stick to just the one screen when you could make viewing life a LOT easier by strategically placing your TVs for optimum viewing! If you’re worried about not having the most open floor plan, then plant that spare TV in the kitchen, basement, or even the garage! Where there’s a TV, people will gather. Don’t put a TV in a spot where you really don’t want a crowd!

6. Scores on the doors!
Is it even the Super Bowl without a square?… NO! It is not! This is an absolute must, if nothing else. You can either draw the 11 x 11 grid yourself, or do what you do for everything else…Amazon it! Either grab a prize for each quarter or do the traditional thing and collect a little pot. Nothing makes the big game more exciting than having a little skin in the game!
7. For the Extra Point… BOOZE!!
This goes without saying, but don’t skimp out on the drinks. Whether your loading up on Capri Suns for the kids or something a little harder for the big kids, go big! With guests bringing appetizers, the rule is – drinks are on you! We don’t mean you need to supply a full bar, but a classic well stocked one is definitely expected!
