22 Super Bowl Party Decoration Ideas, No Matter Which Team You're Rooting For
If you're hosting your own Super Bowl party this year, you'll have a lot to plan for in terms of preparing refreshments and readying your home. While food, booze, and a big screen TV are key, Super Bowl party decorations are also a must, so here's an easy roundup of 22 ideas that work no matter which team you're rooting for.
During your Super Bowl party, you'll be entertaining from prior to kickoff through to the final second of the clock. While the game will provide most of the entertainment, make sure you've thrown a party, not just a game day gathering. With some guests arriving in face paint of their team's colors and head-to-toe fan gear, you'll want your game viewing space to reflect the same level of enthusiasm. Have your requisite banners and balloons on lock, but also turn up the excitement with unexpected additions like football throw pillows and a six-foot-tall goal post cooler for all your brews. Whip up treats to theme with cupcake toppers celebrating Super Bowl 50, and serve snacks on football-shaped plates and popcorn in football field boxes. During commercial breaks, get guests out of their seats with a photo booth and game of piñata. Regardless of which team you're rooting for this year, these decorations promise to get everyone in the game day spirit.
