Super Bowl Party in Your Gerstad Home
February 13 is the biggest football day of the year. Fans of every team come together to cheer on the team they have chosen to win. If you are hosting a Super Bowl party for family and friends in your beautiful new Gerstad Builders home. The pressure is on to ensure that your guests have a wonderful time, whether they are rooting for Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals or Matthew Stafford and the LA Rams.
One of the first items to do when planning the party is creating the guest list. Once the list is done, send out the invitations and make sure to put an RSVP date. Having a head count in advance will help with menu planning, seating and paper goods. On the invitation make sure to state if it is for adults only or if children are included. Furthermore, with today’s technology using sites such as Evite, you can send out the invitations for free. Remember to ask your guests to wear their favorite teams’ colors or jersey.
The next item to check off is the menu. There are many party favorites and appetizers to choose from. Once party staple is chicken wings, but make sure to have plenty of napkins nearby! A variety of dips is also essential. One of the easiest and crowd pleasing dips is Velveeta Salsa Dip. Prep time for this dish is about 10 minutes and can be kept warm in a crock pot for hours. Want to change the dip up a little? Try adding your own personalized touch, for example; jalapenos, ground beef and chorizo. Do not forget to purchase bags of chips for the dip.
If your Super Bowl party includes kids, make sure to include appetizers that are kid friendly. What kid can pass up pigs in a blanket? Healthier options should be available such as bite sized veggies. Finally, dessert! Include fresh baked brownies or cookies, or check your local grocery store or bakery for football themed items.
Another essential part of your Super Bowl party are the decorations. Take a trip to any party or grocery store and you will find themed plates, cups, napkins and other decorations. If you are a crafty person, search Pinterest for fun party decor. You can find football pennants, football field tablecloths and so much more.
