Super Bowl get together ideas buzz is all around. Regardless if your favorite team is in or is out, as tradition dictates most of us will be joining in on the Super Bowl merriment from the comfort of home- the favorite party zone.
Super Bowl get together ideas drive the ultimate game day excitement down the field.
Fan favorite food.
Halftime show performance showcases.
Commercials dripping in social media buzz and advertising gold.
My tried-and-true Super Bowl get together ideas entertaining formula consists of four quarter basic components:
The next best thing to experiencing the sounds of the Super Bowl live and in person is watching the game in enhanced audio quality.
Comfort factors into the game day experience, and comfortable seating options score big points with the crowd.

In this neck of the woods where mild winters allow magnolia trees, ligustrums, and your basic garden variety greenery to maintain color and growth, cuttings and clippings are readily available for centerpiece arrangements.
The cuttings and clippings make a nice showing on their own, but really kick the look up a notch when mixed with a couple of fresh bouquets from the supermarket floral department.
A DIY Lombardi Trophy is a simple project to do with an equally simple item list.
Tapered bud vase.
Glue sticks and glue gun.
Silver spray paint.
Glue the football (angled) to the vase. Allow to dry for at least one(1) hour.
Once the football is completely adhered to vase, spray paint your championship masterpiece with silver spray paint.
Another inexpensive decoration involves glass cylinder container(s) from the dollar store.
Fill the containers/vases with glitter balls and crinkle paper shreds in team-inspired colors.
Top it off with a football and there you go.
It’s not how much it costs, but the wow factor it creates.
Black and white stripes bring to mind a referee uniform and make a great theme to decorate with.
Dress up beverage bottles with these black and white striped bottle labels.
Pick up a pack of coaches/referee whistles for this next idea.
Feed black and white striped ribbon or baker’s twine through the whistle ring and tie around the neck of the bottle.
Black and white striped popcorn boxes and treat bags are a good call for serving popcorn, nuts, and party mixes.
Dave the Builder and I love In-N-Out Burger.
In-N-Out Burger is always on the where to eat list when we go to Las Vegas or Dallas.
We go with the eating in the car option complete with lap mats and paper trays.
What better time copy the eating in the car concept than a Super Bowl party.
Scrapbook paper is just the right size and design for lap mats, placemats and coasters.
I like to buy items that easily fit with other occasions and themes.

The idea behind the Super Bowl party nosh is to pair good times with good eats.
Clocking time in the kitchen preparing complicated snacks takes you away from the play-by-play action.
Easy is the game plan, so let’s take a look at easy recipes.
The ever popular cheese platter and charcuterie board goes into the Super Bowl snack hall of fame.
Variety is the spice of life and the rule of the cheese charcuterie board. Work with what is available, on sale, and in season.
Here’s the items that make the tray.
One sharp, one mild, one soft, and one blue cheese.
Next, I select a trio of in season fresh fruits such as grapes, dates, berries, and apples. Dried apricots and dried cranberries round out the category.
If I have good olives on hand I’ll add them to the tray. Pepperoncinis complement well, too.
Creole pecans and mixed nuts bring the kick and the crunch.
Fig preserves, honey, and bacon pepper jam are my jam.
An assortment of crackers and breads of your preference.
Prosciutto and smoked turkey (house favorites).
Dip is the official unofficial food of the Super Bowl soiree.

Air fryer madness is sweeping the kitchen nation, and if you’ve got one you know why.
I call cooking/frying food in an air fryer a healthy compromise without any compromise at all.
Food cooks with less fat, faster than traditional methods, is not limited to frying (grills, roasts, bakes), and the best feature- no oil!
This alternative to traditional frying takes countertop kitchen appliance must have to the next super easy to use with super delicious results level.
