Even if you aren’t a big football fan, the Super Bowl is a must-see event – and a wonderful excuse to bring friends and family around to watch! Even though it’s one of the more laid-back parties you host throughout the year — after all, it’s all about indulging in fatty snacks while watching TV — there’s still some preparation to be done.
Here are some tasty finger snacks, appropriately themed decorations, and other helpful hints to help you have the finest Super Bowl party ever.
What’s great about throwing a Super Bowl party is that you can get creative with your décor. Here are a few of our favorite football decorations to help you turn your party into something spectacular.
The MVP of your party can get this easy-to-make DIY trophy. This reward will be fiercely contested. A foam football, gold spray paint, and a plastic cup are all you’ll need.

Pom Pom Garland
This beautiful garland is just what you need if you prefer more whimsical decor. To cheer on your team in style, all you need is some yarn and ribbon. Hang these pom poms above your buffet table or entryway.
DIY Football Field
On your buffet table, create a football field with a grass carpet tablecloth, bleachers to display food, and DIY goal posts on either side.
With a little friendly betting, you can keep the competition going. After everyone has put down their guesses, this printable poster makes a wonderful decor element to stand up. Add a splash of color if you want to spice things up a little.
Balloons and Garlands
Birthday parties and weddings love garlands, banners, and bunting, and a football party is no exception. Make your own banners or purchase them at a party supply store, then hang them around your house to provide color and game day joy.
One of the best Super Bowl party ideas is to dress up your beverages and snack table to seem like a football field table. You may get artificial grass (or just a green tablecloth) from your local party supply store and adorn it with goal posts made out of plastic pipe or even upside-down glasses.
Giving your guests an amazing backdrop to style their photos against is a must at parties. Hang iridescent garlands and a huge banner instead of a giant balloon garland in your team colors. You can make your own DIY photo booth at home with some large football-themed decorations.

Serve with serving spoons, forks, and tongs a variety of scrumptious snacks like BBQ chicken wings, pretzels, pizza slices, nachos, and salads. No one will be tempted to eat with their fingers this way. Make sure there are enough hand sanitizing wipes on the table as well.
It’s a thirsty job watching the Super Bowl, so bring plenty of drinks! Serve a variety of chilled drinks to your guests, including alcoholic and non-alcoholic options. Beer, wine, cocktails, mocktails, fresh fruit juices, and water are all fantastic drinks to have on hand.
Other Party Ideas
Request that your guests wear a team shirt or the colors of their favorite team — or, at the very least, the team they believe will win — when they come. Give your best-dressed guest a small gift as a way to take your idea to the next level.
Face paint isn’t just for kids, right? Keep a few face paint sets on hand so that your party guests may dress up in team colors, logos, or stripes to get into the spirit of the game. This is one of our favorite Super Bowl party ideas since it adds a lot of fun and creativity to the party.
