Will you be having a Super Bowl party this year? Here are some quick tips for planning it out.Planning a Super Bowl party is not incredibly different from planning out a birthday party. In both cases, you need to set aside time to figure out where to have it, what food will be served, and how the guests will be entertained. Think of it that way, and you might reduce some of the stress about planning a Super Bowl party. Here are some other ways to make things work out well.

How to Plan a Super Bowl Party

Send Invitations
Take the time to put together some physical Super Bowl party invitations. You are going to need to limit the number of guests to the space the party will be held at. How many people can comfortably fit into your living room? That’s a good number of guests to select.

Don’t make a Facebook event page to let people know about your Super Bowl party. Some of your Facebook friends may live across the country from you (or halfway around the world) and will be unable to attend due to the travel required. The event page could end up attracting more guests than you can manage. For best results, choose wisely and send out party invitations.

Decorations
You don’t need to go overboard on the decorations for your Super Bowl party. Simple is best. The main attraction is the game itself, and few people will focus on the decorations.

There are two ways to decorate. One way is to decorate in the colors of both teams that will be competing. This is great if some of your guests will be cheering for one team while other guests are cheering for the opposing team. Or, if everyone you invited loves the same team, you could just decorate in that team’s colors.

Balloons can make any living room a little more festive. You can find paper plates and plastic cups in the color you need at a party store or dollar store. Use a green tablecloth (that vaguely resembles a football field) on the table that will hold the food you serve.

Food and Beverage
It is much easier to figure out how much food and drink to serve if you know how many guests will arrive. Will you be ordering food? For best results, contact the caterer, fast food restaurant, or pizza place days before the Super Bowl. Place your order at that time. This helps to ensure that the food you need will actually arrive.

Pick up some decorative cupcakes or a cake from the bakery at the grocery store for dessert. You can also make your own Super Bowl party food. Choose things that are hearty and easy to eat while sitting in front of the TV. Burgers, sausages, and wings are good choices. Serve soda of have your guests bring their own beverages.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
