Planning a Super Bowl Soire? Stop here first.

31 Jan


Sadly, I will not be attending the Super Bowl, since the 49-ers didn’t make it to the Big Dance, and we were only able to secure tickets through Kevin’s contacts in San Fran…but Happily, I get to attend the Best. Superbowl. Party. Ever.  Seriously… Plus, it’s a 2-day event for me, as I go and help my friend, Donna, the day prior…and her husband Dave usually rewards my “hard work” with many, many glasses of a lovely Chard…I mean, best weekend ever!

Snazzy Party Ideas

Warm beer can be chilled in minutes by placing it in salted ice.


Use your empty drink boxes to label your coolers.


If you don’t want people leaving their half-drunk drinks around, these cups are an easy way to help your guests keep track.  In Team colors, of course!


Pour the perfect drink using this handy Solo cup guide.

Tie a bottle opener to the drink tub or cooler.



Run out of ice? Freeze individual water bottles and use them as ice packs in your cooler.


Line your garbage cans with multiple bags so you don’t have to waste time re-bagging.


Buy your alcohol from Costco, even if you don’t have a membership.

You do not need to be a card-carrying member of Costco, to take advantage of alcohol purchasing, which can mean a 25% savings from liquor or grocery stores.




Chili Bar


Nacho Bar


Baked Potato Bar


Corn Muffin/Dogs – I’ve been asked to bring these to the party I’m attending.  These are mini muffins, btw.



Mini Taco Bowls


Devilish Deviled Eggs


Fruit Salad in a Watermelon Bowl in the shape of a football helmet


Soft Pretzel , yet another food item in the shape of a football


Mini Hotdogs…with a new twist…with a green olive helmet, using mustard for the straps and eyes… I’m sorry, but this is Hilarious, and Adorable…Plus, I’m a huge fan of green olives.


This is, by far, the most Obnoxious thing I have ever seen…and I like quirky, and am all about themes…but Way. Way, Way too much! Do not try this at home!


I’m not even going to “go there” re: chicken wings… I think they say over 1.25 Billion will be eaten?  Wow…not much else to add.


Delightful Desserts
Super Bowl party ice cream sandwiches

Ice Cream Sandwiches – put a popsicle stick, and put the football laces, piped on with frosting.


Football laces on top of cupcakes… easy, and sweet!


Chocolate dipped strawberries


Cocoa-Krispies, made like rice krispie treats.  Disclaimer…I made these last year, and they didn’t turn out nearly this cute.  You really need make sure the piping is super thin.


Budweiser Superbowl Commercial – 2014 – how can you Not love this commercial?!

Budweiser Superbowl Commercial – 2013 – makes me sob like a baby…plus, it features Chicago…My kind of town!!

For more Superbowl stats, party ideas, decorating tips, party games, etc…check out Related Posts for last year’s post…plus another glance at my stint as an extra in a Superbowl commercial.  I won’t know if I “made the cut” until I see the commercial, with the rest of the world!


Be Handsome.   Be Attractive.  Don’t Be Unattractive…fun quote from the Tom Brady SNL skit.  True words by the way…and since I’ve had too many video links in this blog, just google, General Electric sexual harassment and you on YouTube. 🙂

Fabulous week, and had best lunch ever, with the best boss ever…and no, not Kevin (marrying him was easier than continuing to work for him)…Lunch with Dave W.!  Chardonnay and oysters, and a seafood salad.  I mean, what is not to love?  Love that man!!


Go Bronco’s…I’m a total Peyton Manning Fan.  He’s a total class act.  Check out his stint on SNL.  So funny, and the one with the theme from Casino Royale, is LOL funny!  You can FF to 2.35.  Peyton Manning can really dance!  Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass…This should be the song of the week.  And again…Go Bronco’s and Go Peyton Manning!

Party on and be safe!
