If you have ever been to a potluck dinner, you probably already know that it is a dinner party where everyone brings a dish. Since many are on a budget this year, it may not be a bad idea to have a potluck super bowl party. This way you will be able to still have your yearly super bowl party without the large expenses.
To plan your potluck super bowl party, you will first need to call all of the friends you want at your super bowl party. Email is often the best way to do this. You will be able to let everyone know at once and ask them to bring a snack, dish, or drink. That is really basically all you need for a potluck super bowl party. You can even jazz it up a bit and see who will bring the most creative super bowl dish. For those who like to cook this can be a fun way to bring a treat and be with your friends.
Be sure that you include in the email that everyone should email you back as to what they will be bringing. Whatever additional items you may want at the party, that are not on the list you can prepare them. To avoid having a large amount of drinks, or appetizers, you may want to assign who brings what type of dish. For example you can ask one person to bring a desert item of their choosing, and another to bring the appetizer of their choosing. You can even have several people do desserts and several do the main course. Either way you are sure to have enough food for your party.
When it comes to decorating and arranging the house you will need to handle all of that, but you don’t have to break the bank. First you will want to be sure that everyone has a place to sit so that they can watch the game comfortably. You can set up a food table using a plastic table cloth in the colors of the teams in the Super Bowl. You can also get the super bowl party goods at your local party store. If you purchase these times the week of the super bowl you will find them on sale. They usually have napkins, tablecloths, and even serving bowls. You should set up your kitchen so that your guests can very easily come in and serve themselves when they are hungry. You should also set up some snack areas in your living room. This way if someone just wants to munch their will be plenty of food, and they don’t have to get up during the game. You will want to have some snacks and food ready for when your guests arrive. Since this is a potluck super bowl party you only have to supply a small amount of food to start everyone off.
So if you looking for a way to have a super bowl on a budget why not give a potluck Super Bowl party a try.
