The Super Bowl just a few short days away. Many people have already begun to plan their own party to celebrate. When entertaining large groups of people, it is not always easy to find the right dishes and cocktails to please all your guests. The right food can be just the perfect thing to help spruce up your Super Bowl party and help guests relax and enjoy themselves.
A Good Drink
Treat your guests to a fabulous pitcher of delicious winter sangria. I love the recipe from FoodNetwork.com. We always run out halfway through the game – this year, I’m making two batches!
Have a Blind Wine Tasting
Challenge your guests with a blind wine tasting event. Ask everyone to bring a bottle wrapped in aluminum foil. Hand out glasses and a description of each wine. See if your guests can identify at least three of the wines. Winner with the most correct answers can win a prize!
Focus on Presentation
Because I host a Super Bowl party almost every year, my husband bought me a lovely wooden tray and dip set as a token of his appreciation from RedEnvelope’s Hostess Gifts page. Use an elegant tray to present items like blanched vegetables and dips. A wooden tray matches any décor. Plus, the tray is also easy to clean. Just pop it in the dishwasher and you’re ready for another party.
Pick a Filling Appetizer

Welcome your guests with a hearty appetizer. Every year I always make bacon wrapped meatballs. They’re always a hit. It’s my husband’s favorite and his buddies always request it. I use this easy recipe from TasteofHome.com!
Vote for Your Favorite Commercial
What’s better than the commercials? Have your guests write down their favorite commercial. At the end of the game, pick out of a hat – whoever’s commercial gets pick wins a prize!
While it can be hard to throw a Super Bowl party, these tips will hopefully help you out when planning that very special party for your friends. Good Luck!
