Super Bowl Sunday is just around the corner, check out 5 things for home field advantage if you are hosting a party this year:
The Crowd – make sure you have enough people. You’ll want to have a good mix of people including die-hard football fans and less-fanatic fans. Having the right amount of people is key to keeping the mood lively and fun.The TV – you’ll want at least at 42” HD TV. People expect a big TV for the ultimate game day experience and surround sound is an added plus. A 42” TV or larger is a good idea for the main room with smaller TVs available in other areas of the house if you’re expecting a really large crowd. The Menu – smaller snack foods are perfectly fine for the pre-game with a choice of more substantial main dishes served buffet style. Feeding a group of friends in your living room for the big game is much less stressful than a dinner party. Have fun with recipes to create a memorable, easy menu. Staples include pizza, chili, Buffalo wings, or hearty sandwiches. Of course, you’ll want to have plenty of beverages on hand for the day too. The Seating – you’ll want to make sure you have plenty of comfortable seating for your guests. Try to have a cushioned chair for every guest if possible. Ottomans, beanbags and gaming chairs are great short-term solutions.The Atmosphere – keep the mood light and fun. Try to have something else to do at halftime for those who aren’t interested in the official halftime show. A casual football toss, trivia game, or a little video game action are great ways to pass the 30 minute half time slot.
