Whether guests are more interested in the game, commercials, or the halftime show, make sure to provide a few football-inspired activities to keep everyone entertained.
Rockaway, NJ (PRWEB) January 19, 2012
More women are becoming dedicated NFL fans, and recent statistics from the AP show nearly 44 percent of the NFL's fan base is female. With the biggest game of the year around the corner, Party City knows whether they're true "Pigskin Princesses" or "Casual Gridiron Gals," it's women who usually plan a Super Bowl party. America's largest party specialty retailer wants everyone to party like a pro on game day with these simple, sporty touches and budget-friendly tips to make any Super Bowl party more fun!
CREATE A GRAND ENTRANCE FOR GUESTS
Transform the entryway into a field tunnel fit for any NFL superstars to run through by covering the sidewalk leading to the front door with a "green carpet" of turf. Enhance the look by lining the carpet with football-themed and NFL team-logo balloons anchored by megaphones. Greet guests with a front door wrapped in
Super Bowl pennant banners and football cutouts.
SERVE A WINNING GAMEDAY MENU
Next to the game, the food is the most important part of any Super Bowl party. A simple make-ahead buffet game plan ensures that the host doesn't miss the game. Serve hearty buffet classics like hamburgers, ribs, wings and chili in chafing dishes to keep food hot for all four quarters.
Add team spirit to a tablescape by placing labeled miniature white footballs near dishes as clever buffet food labels. Less formal than menu cards, this small touch makes a big impression and clearly identifies each menu item.
Stock a FANtastic Super Bowl bar with football-inspired drinks, such as Bloody Hail Marys, Spiked Iced Tea and Wild Card Wine, or an assortment of wines for guests to choose as their favorite. Even beer bottles and soda cans come dressed for the party when embellished with referee and football cozies, which also make great party favors for guests.
OUTFIT GUESTS WITH PARTY FAN-WEAR
Go beyond team jerseys and apparel and hand out party fan-wear to get their game faces on. Pom-poms, megaphones and cowbells are great for cheering on the winning team.
Party fan-wear also does double duty when combined with other party supplies in creative ways. Lanyards and bead necklaces become table decorations when displayed in glass jars or containers in team colors, and team wristbands wrapped around drink glasses personalize drinkware.
Get the party started early by sending team logo buttons or tattoos with invitations.
REVEL IN THE RIVALRY WITH TEAM-LOGO PARTY SUPPLIES
Create some football frenzy by decorating with officially licensed NFL decorations, including tableware, pennant banners, flags, mini-helmets and more. Create separate fan zones by setting out plates for both Super Bowl teams to get everyone in the spirit of the biggest game of the year.
ENTERTAIN WITH FOOTBALL INSPIRED ACTIVITIES
Whether guests are more interested in the game, commercials or Madonna's halftime show, make sure to provide a few football-inspired activities to keep everyone entertained. The hottest Super Bowl party games include football pools with prizes, competitive beer pong tournaments and classic finger football or the updated fiki football version.
