Are You Ready For Some Football?

This Sunday is Superbowl Sunday 
so you better have your game plan down.
Here's a few tips I've used in the past to make our get 
together's a memorable championship fun time whichever team you're rooting for.
 Set the mood.
Create a great game day atmosphere with football themed party supplies such as football field table covers, banners, streamers, paper plates and cups. If you’ve got the opposing team’s jerseys, t-shirts or hats, hang them on the walls. Keep a soft football or two around the house to toss around between plays. If you really want to go over the top, you can offer to paint your guests’ faces in their team’s colors. Too fun!
We had one of these ref's one year.
 He was in shreds by the end of the game!
We gave him a proper burial.

Check your equipment.
You can’t beat a large, dust-free flat screen to take in all the action. With the TV off, gently clean the screen with a soft microfiber cloth. Do not use paper towels or tissues as they can scratch the surface. If you’ve got a home sound-system, check the connections for optimum audio quality. Clear any unnecessary furniture or clutter from the viewing area and make sure there’s plenty of room for all to sit or stand up and cheer after a score.

Have plenty of food and drink on hand.

Watching an event this exciting can take a lot out of your guests, so make sure you serve plenty of refreshments to refuel the fans. Put out bowls of chips, pretzels and dips for the pre‑game. Once the game starts, break out the nachos with salsa, melted cheese and sour cream. A hearty pot of chili, hero sandwiches, pizza and buffalo chicken wings are always crowd favorites. Have plenty of soft drinks, beer and water on hand to keep everyone hydrated and happy.

I made these cute football mason jars to drink out of one year.
Just get white tape and mark off the stitches like on a football. Any brown soda inside resembles a football! Add a fun straw, a little pennant if you'd like, using a marker to edge it in for your teams colors tied on with bakers twine. The kids love them!

A few quick and easy food ideas that have been crowd pleasers at my home in the past. 

Salami, cheese, and olives. That’s it!

Just put out your favorite Nacho toppings 
and everyone can create their own.
Pop in microwave to heat and your done.

Easy peasy Pepperoni Rollups

Salted Caramel Apple Dip
4-6 Tbs. unsalted butter
3/4 c brown sugar
1 package of softened cream cheese. {8 oz.}
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt

Melt the butter and sugar in the microwave together for 2 min covered, stirring half-way.
mix in cream cheese until its all melted and combined, may even need an electric mixer to be sure it’s completely smooth. add vanilla and salt (or omit the salt if you use salted butter).

Don’t forget the bathroom.
It’s a long day and the bathroom will be busy, so make sure it’s clean and well stocked with plenty of hand soap, clean towels, room deodorizer and toilet paper. After all, you don’t want your loo to look like a locker room.

Now sit back and enjoy the game!
