How to Host an Inexpensive Super Bowl Party

How to Host an Inexpensive Super Bowl Party

Last year we hosted a super bowl party because our Seahawks went. We’ll probably be doing it again since they’ve made it yet again! The first team in 10 years to do a back to back super bowl. So Awesome! The game was so stressful, yet so exciting. I think my husband and I went through every emotion imaginable yesterday.

How to Host an Inexpensive Super Bowl Party

When I did my Seahawks themed super bowl party, I pretty much avoided the expensive NFL licensed products. I did end up picking up a set of plates that said Seahawks on them just for the hell of it at Walmart, which wasn’t too overly priced (under $3) But for the most part, I grabbed green and blue plates, napkins and silverware at Walmart which were $1 each.

We had the party be potluck style, so people brought a little something to help lessen the costs, but honestly, it ended up being too much food anyways. Make sure you’re not over doing it with however many people you have invited. Some examples of what we had: Chips and dips, mini weenies, pinwheel sandwiches, deviled eggs, cupcakes, crackers-cheese-salami tray, brownies, cookies, jello shots, skittles vodka, beer, soda etc. Go for more simple snack items, it will lessen the costs. Also, don’t be afraid to use coupons! You should be able to find sales and stack your coupons with them during the first week before Superbowl.

DIY decorations: I wasn’t about to spend a fortune on NFL themed decor, so I opted to do some myself. I bought a few poster boards at the Dollar Tree and printed out photos and glued them on. I also had a bunch of construction paper so I cut out some bubble letters to stick on the Feed the Beast board and then borrowed my friends hot glue gun and glued skittles onto the board since that is Lynch’s game day power booster. I had mostly everything on hand to decorate the boards with: crayons, markers, glue, scissors, paper, printer, picmonkey app etc.

Evites: Send invites out on Facebook or through email. Don’t waste money on mail invites when most if not all of you are on Facebook anyways. And who doesn’t have an email address?

Don’t worry about brand name products. Buy off brand if that means a significant savings. Your guests won’t care and everyone’s happy.

Seahawks Superbowl XLVIII

Yesterday was a rough day to be watching the Seahawks. The immediate fumble at the beginning of the game by Russell Wilson that ended up being recovered by the 49ers left me cringing in my seat, but thankfully we held them to only a field goal. Pretty soon, the score read 10-0 49ers, which was then reduced to 10-3 by midpoint.  I didn’t lose my faith because I knew they’d come out playing better in the second half, and that they did!

Thank you to the entire team for working together and to Sherman’s tip in the end zone for intended receiver Crabtree, and Malcolm Smith for catching it making it the game winning interception! Final score 23-17! YEAHHHHH BUDDY, we’re going to the Superbowl!

We had a little party here because we knew it was going to be a good game, after all, the 49ers are our rivals and most Seahawks fans absolutely despise the 49ers coach Harbaugh because he’s a cry baby, fit throwing, jackass. Last weeks game when the 49ers played against the Panthers, he received an unsportsmanlike conduct flag for throwing a fit over an incompletion call. I couldn’t stop laughing…

But, people aren’t making a big fuss about the Seahawks winning the NFC championship game and going onward to the Superbowl. They’re more hyped on what Sherman said in his after game interview. He was rightfully calling Crabtree out. Some of you may think he’s a thug or a bully, but him and Crabtree have had their differences for a year when Crabtree tried to start a fight with Sherman at a charity event. Sherman went up to shake everyone’s hand including Crabtree and Crabtree hit his hand away and stood up like he wanted to fight. There’s a time and a place for everything and that was not one of those places.

Regardless of whether or not you think Sherman’s shit talking antics are classless or thuggish, we’re going to the Superbowl and that’s all that matters!

Now, I have a Superbowl party to plan which most likely consists of taking up a lot of my time until after it’s over.

Let’s #gohawks. It’s our year!
