Whether you tune in for the game, the half-time show or the commercials, watching the Super Bowl has become a yearly event that rivals a national holiday! But a Super Bowl party does not have to revolve around the television, or involve ordering pizza. So, in the spirit of (friendly) competition, we’ve come up with a fun team-themed party idea to make your Super Bowl Sunday enjoyable for all!
To stay true to the sports theme of the day, assign your guests into “teams” and have them compete for a Super Party Prize! Like a competitive potluck, each team should make the same number of dishes, and try to bring their tastiest “A-game” foods to the party. At the end of the day, each guest will vote for their overall favorite dish, and the tallied votes will decide the winning team. You can up the ante by asking each team to decide on a specific cuisine (Spanish vs Italian? We love tapas and antipasti!). Or have them prepare foods that represent the regions of the football teams playing in the big game (New England vs Seattle? Bring on the lobster rolls and smoked salmon!).
If there are children attending your party, ask each team to bring a creative activity or game for the kids to enjoy. Have an art station where they can create colorful team logos and sports pennants, or make a classic tailgating game kid-friendly (like a bag toss). Then let the children decide the winning team based off which activities they enjoyed the most. It will keep the whole family entertained!
There are so many ways you can boost the creativity for your team-theme party! Have each team make a signature drink. Create custom favors, based off team colors and logos. And give out individual prizes to each team’s “MVP”, for most popular dish. But with tasty food, happy guests and an interactive theme, everyone will be a winner on Super Bowl Sunday!
