How to Organize a Super Bowl Party

This is a repost from last year, but I thought it is still relevant because of the upcoming Super Bowl. 

I am sad that the Super Bowl is not in Houston this year. It was a ton of fun to have it in town 2 years ago. Since we are a concierge company in Houston we were busy and filled with all kinds of fun activities. Plus, my clients had all kinds of personal assistant tasks and professional organizing tasks based all around Super Bowl being in town. If you are hosting a Super Bowl party below are some tips to organize for a Super Bowl party.

  • Make a to-do list. Make a list of everything you know you need to do like guest list, food, drinks, etc.
  • Clean. Clean a couple of days of ahead of time and prep for your guests.
  • Guest list. Make a list of people you want to invite over and send out an evite, text, or email. Send invites 1-2 weeks prior to the Super Bowl.
  • Decide what room you will watch the game in. See if you need more seating. If so, bring seating options into the room.
  • Decorations. Decide if you want to go simple or use team colors. You can often get items at the Dollar Store in order to save some money.
  • Prep food. Prep as much food as you can the night before and consider having a potluck where everyone brings a dish. The Defined Dish has some great Super Bowl Sunday Whole30 recipes and First & Full has some great Super Bowl recipes. 
  • Extra Ice. Be sure to have extra ice for all the drinks.
  • Coolers. Have coolers stocked with a variety of drinks like water, soda and beer.
  • Plates, napkins, serving ware, etc. Have plenty of these items for everyone to use. 
  • Remove breakables. Anything precious to you, breakable or valuable remove from the areas you will be in during your Super Bowl party. You never know how rowdy some of your guests will get.
  • Have a cleaning kit ready. Be prepared for spills and stains that can happen and take them with ease as they come. Make sure to gather up a small cleaning kit, so you are prepared.
  • Document. Take photos and share with friends. Instax cameras are always fun to have around.
  • Take notes. After the party is over. Take notes of things you would like to do the next time you host a party.
  • Have fun!
