Cheap Last Minute Super Bowl Party Tips

Posted on 02/02/2011

Planning a bash to watch the year’s best commercials, erm, I mean, football? Super Bowl Sunday is approaching faster than Brett Favre’s court date. Get your party plans in order with these cheap, last minute entertaining tips.

Use Free Text Invites - Texting out invitations is nothing new. But when you’re planning a big bash, it can be tough to send all of those messages. Now with the free service GroupMe, you can assign a unique phone number to each group of stored contacts so you’ll have quick, constant communication.

Choose Easy Recipe Ideas - Let’s face it, this isn’t a fancy affair. Don’t bust your behind trying to prepare delicate hors d’oeuvres when chips and salsa will do. Use these ideas for easy stew recipes from Fox 43 or these appetizer recipes from CBS.

Have Extra Seating - You may be surprised by how many people show up to your game-day soiree. Be prepared by nailing down extra seating. This could mean dusting off some plastic patio chairs or having some floor pillows handy.

Ask Guests to Bring Drinks - All that salty Super Bowl fare means people will be drinking a lot. Ask guests to bring along some soda or beer to share with other party guests. We bet you’ll be thankful for the extra inventory by the time the Black Eyed Peas take the stage.

Play Super Bowl Commercial Bingo - When you throw a Super Bowl Party there’s really no need for entertainment. Guests will either be enthralled with the game or excited by the commercials. But you can enhance the fun of watching the commercials by taking a cue from and create some Super Bowl Commercial Bingo Cards. Make sure you have a prize for the winner and you’ll score big with your party guests.
