How to Host a Super Bowl Party

Now that you've got a perfect TV, you'll need to invite your guests, do a little decorating and put together a spread that will keep them all happy while they watch the game—and the commercials.

Dulcinea's Insight

  • For advice on general party planning, including how to send out invitations, decorate your house and entertain, see our Web Guide to Hosting a Party. Do your shopping early: Super Bowl-themed items and foods will sell out fast.
  • If you decide to serve food at a separate buffet table, make sure it's one that still provides a clear line of vision to the television set so that your guests can get refills without missing any of the action.
  • Use breaks in the game to serve new items or clear others away, but follow the advice of chef Todd English: "Don't overwhelm your guests with too much structure. Remember, you're not the star of the show, the game is."
