The #SuperBowl: More Than Just A Game! Guest Post from Healthy Living by Quinn

Game Day is just around the corner, two days away to be exact. This may be when the freak-outs start for those of you planning to host your own little soiree in celebration of the Denver Broncos vs. Seattle Seahawks. I really could care less about the game. Unless my Eagles are there, it doesn’t matter to me who wins. Sorry I’m not sorry! 
For me, and probably a lot of you as well, the Super Bowl is about much more than big sweaty men rolling all over the ground with each other. It’s totally social for me. Friends coming together to hang out and have a good time…funny and ground-breaking commercials…and of course food. The men can sit and watch the game, but what about the party-goers who aren’t all “First Down!” this and “Touchdown!” that? For you, I give you Quinn, a healthy living enthusiast who came to me in hopes of being able to give my readers some Super Bowl Party tips to ensure you throw the best party ever. Make sure to stop by and give Quinn some love on her blog!

More Than a Football Game

The Super Bowl will be here before you know it, so now is the time to start planning your party. Unfortunately, achieving just the right atmosphere and selecting the most satisfying food to suit everyone’s tastes can be difficult. In order to meet the needs of all your party-goers, here are some tips I’ve found have helped for throwing the perfect Super Bowl party.
Easy Appetizers and Drinks
Find something to serve which you know can’t go wrong. For me, that’s my Bacon-Wrapped Meatballs. Not only is it quick and easy to make, but it’s an appetizer dish that gets rave reviews every time I serve it. Check out a great recipe here.
Create the perfect cocktail to accompany your food. My favorite choice for the Super Bowl is Linebacker Limeade, and everyone loves it both for its name and because it’s delicious. It only requires three ingredients, and I can make pitchers of it quickly and easily. See my go to recipe at this site.
Break Out That Awesome Dish
Use those unique or meaningful serving dishes that you don’t always get to use. I especially enjoy serving my guests using the casserole dish my husband got me several years ago from here in appreciation for hosting such successful parties. Both the dish and the parties have become traditions in our home.
Fun Activities
Fourth, do something to add a little non-football fun to your party. One idea is to have a karaoke contest sometime during the game. This takes a little planning, as guests need to come prepared with a song choice; however, it’s as simple as plugging in an iPod and letting your guests do the entertaining. Add to the fun by giving prizes to the winners.
Commercials Are The Best Part!
Finally, remember that the Super Bowl is not just about football. For some, the commercials are the best part of the experience, so create a little competition that everyone can enjoy. Have each guest vote for his or her favorite commercial: at the end of the game, tally up the votes and see who voted for your group’s favorite commercial. Awarding small prizes to the winners will always be appreciated.
The Super Bowl is more than a football game; it’s an opportunity for you to create a memorable experience for your family and your guests. Take advantage of these tips for food, drink and fun to make your preparations easier and to ensure that your party is unforgettable.

Thanks, Quinn, for these awesome party tips. I hope it has been helpful to those of you hosting a Super Bowl party this Sunday!
