We hosted a superbowl party here this weekend. It was a great way to get people over and show them the not-so-new house, especially since we've painted and added some nicer furniture.
Highlights of the party included:
TWO tvs! We brought down our second TV so that you could see the game from all points in the livingroom.
Speakers in the bathroom. It would a real shame to miss any part of the game because nature called at an inopportune time.
FOOD: I made the following:
Jerk Chicken Skewers
There was also:
a 2nd chili (!!)
Veggies & dip
Chips & salsa & guac & sour cream
We had a betting board posted on the wall. We listed a bunch of stats and then people would choose over or under and the person with the most correct guesses wins. Would you believe that the one person the LEAST interested in the game had the most correct guesses? He even left early.
One the smallest yet most brilliant ideas (that I can't take credit for) was jacking up the light that hangs over the dinner table (which was moved to the side). I'm sure we saved everyone from smashing their head, small but awesome idea. If this is an option for you, I recommend it.
It was a great party and I'm so glad everyone could make it! I really enjoyed planning it and I think I'll try to make it a tradition... the only downside is that our house isn't very big so we were pretty much at capacity with 14 people. Too bad the game isn't in the summer or we could make it an outside party.... game projected on the side of the house? Maybe for hockey playoffs...
