Landeelu- has some great ideas on superbowl (or just football party) decorations and food. My favorite is the Ice Cream Football Sandwiches.
Blue I Style- has some super cute super bowl ideas. The astro turf football table runner is a great addition to any football party.

When a commercial comes on your guest just need to hunt for it on their BINGO board. Have an assortment of fun prizes for them to choose from when there's a BINGO!!!

Food is one of the most important parts of a Superbowl (or any) party! Check out my posts on Food Bar Ideas for great menu ideas. Here are some easy diy football snacks that are sure to please!
LET'S GET READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL!!!
One of the most important parts of a party is the food. I love creating a menu for a party. Ilike to find creative ways to display the foods. The best trend that could have happened was the food bars. Waffle bars, taco bars, potato bars, dessert bars and drink bars. Once a food theme is found focusing on that one food and it's condiments or side dishes can make for a unique and creative eating experience.
Other food bar ideas that I think would be great for lunch or dinner are potato bars, nacho/taco bars, or pasta bars. On my Party Food Bars Board on Pinterest there are popcorn bars, coffee bars, hot chocolate bars and many more unique food ideas for your next event. Check it out!
It's time to plan another party!!!! My daughter turns 11 in a few months and gone are the days of a Disney themed character party.

Here are some great and unique themes I found that any 10-12 year-old (or even older) young lady would love.
