It’s that time of year again when football fans and non-fans come together for the big game. Most of the time, many of us can care less who wins, we just want to see the half time show and all the commercials. However,  if you’re hosting a Super Bowl Party or thinking about it, we may just get you in the spirit. As always, we scour the internet for inspiration and then put our own spin on it. No matter who wins Super Bowl XLVIII, you’ll score big with a STYLED event.

We found it at the one with the big orange sign in the flooring department. It is sold by the yard and runs $2-10 a square foot depending on the shade of green and texture you prefer.

Of course, your color theme will be this year’s teams, the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks. We know together the combo of colors doesn’t necessarily work, but your guests can show their team spirit by selecting their preference.

 Football cuisine usually consists of easy finger foods such as pizza, subs and wings along with various chips and dips. You can still serve these go to items, but as we always say, it’s all in the presentation. Serve the chips in a football helmet, garnish your plates with pom pom streamers or mini team pennants and create two signature game day cocktails.

Of course, be sure to have ice cold beer and chilled wine on hand.
