I've been a football fan since I was a little girl, and despite having my dedication and knowledge constantly questioned by bros every year, the Super Bowl (and Super Bowl parties) is still like a second Christmas to me. What's better than a day full of food, booze, and partying with your friends and family? Of course, I'm a little bitter this year since my team, the Green Bay Packers, got knocked out by the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks. And by a little, I mean that I'm almost willing to root for the New England Patriots. That bitter.
But I digress. Maybe this is your first time hosting a Super Bowl party, or maybe your house is the place to be every year. Either way, you know there are a bunch of items you'll need to get in order to make your party as exciting as the game. The only thing you'll have to find for yourself is your game day outfit and, for the record, sparkly fan-gear is totally legit — it's what I wear!
Whether you’re partying in your backyard or in the living room, this rustic burlap banner will last past the Super Bowl and beyond.
