Superbowl Party Ideas and Menu

The sky’s the limit when it comes to creating a Superbowl Party! I always say that, with any sports gathering in the home, good food is a must! I know that Lori agrees, in fact, she wrote a post a few years back on 101 Best Superbowl Recipes on the Internet. Fabulous!

For this year’s Super Bowl Sunday, how about mixing up a large batch or two of chili (with delicious toppings on the side), sliders and dips, and a few finger foods for your guests to munch on?

Set it up.

I like to set a festive table that is open (chairs removed), with easy access for grazing, and also create several food stations, so guests have plenty of options. This also helps keep the congestion down.

The tiered galvanized stand is perfect for setting out individual popcorn servings, with drinks (and ice in the cups) ready to go! Don’t forget to offer a variety of drinks to your guests!

Of course popcorn, nuts, and game day colored gum balls are a must!

Pick up your favorite football napkins.

I found these cute football necklaces at Target, including the football cups and plates.

Dips, chips, healthy snacks like lots of vegetables, are all great game day options. A balela salad (for the gluten-free or vegetarian crowd) is also a good choice, because it can be served as a salad or a dip!

Using the main dining table for snacks, dips, drinks, chips, and goodies, an easy plan is to serve the chili, toppings, and sliders over by the stove. This will keep the food hot, so guests can “graze” on their own timeframe.

Superbowl Party Tips.

–Set up a drink station, or gather the drinks together on one of the tables. TIP: Put ice in the glasses right before the guests arrive!

–Set up several snack tables around the house for convenient munching and grazing. Consider arranging ahead of time individual servings, easy to grab and quickly get back to the game!

–Make the chili the day before, and prep the toppings and make the sliders the day of the party! TIP: Keep the pot simmering on LO so the food stays warm all day.

–Serve a few main dishes, lots of finger foods, and don’t forget to include a variety of healthy foods as well.

I love how a Super Bowl party can add fresh flavors, crunchy chips, salsas and sauces, a main dish or two–mixed with a group of great friends–all with Game Day party flare. It’s such a fun way to relax and enjoy your guests in a casual atmosphere!

I hope your favorite team wins this year, Friends!

    Love love love the galvanized stands and all the snack cups. It makes it look so festive and easy to grab. I found a great set of football themed plates and napkins at Costco years ago, I don’t know if they have them all the time but they are great. The spread looks delicious…and something for everyone!

    Chili is a MUST

    Chili is a MUST for The Superbowl here in Kansas City. I also like lots of dips. The shrimp sliders look incredible! I may have to add them to my menu this year.

    Thanks for letting me be a part of the “party,” Lori. Loved coming up with all these fantastic recipes … you have SO many to choose from on your site, all perfect for Superbowl!

    Wow, what a line up.
    Being from Oregon, my guys are still dealing with the OR loss to OH. I keep telling them that second in the nation isn’t too bad.
    I bet that if I make some of this for the Superbowl it might make the pain go away. Thanx

    Love the “line up” for the Super Bowl Party! You’ve given me some great ideas for my party! For the ham sliders, do you make/prep those before hand or cook them before guests arrive? I always struggle with the timing of everything because you want hot food to stay hot. Love your blog!

      I make them the night before (refrigerate), then pop them in the oven about 30 minutes before I want to serve them.
