Creating the Perfect Super Bowl Party

Are you excited about watching the Super Bowl this year? Between the snacks, the drinks, the commercials and the halftime show, there’s so much to look forward to. And oh, right—there’s also the football game!

Here at BBJ Linen, we know how to create a memorable event from start to finish. Our bold, unique specialty linen rentals will give your Super Bowl party that extra touch and create a fun and classy atmosphere for your guests.

Team Colors for the Win

First of all, let your team’s colors dictate your party color scheme. With our selection of brightly colored table linen, linen overlays, napkins and table runners, you’re sure to find the right combination for your team.

For sporting events, one of my favorites is our Jersey line. For decades, sports fans and teams alike have used this fabric, and by mimicking professional sports uniforms, you can design a stylish and celebratory table. Just accent it with our referee table runner in black and white stripes, and the design is done. Our website makes it easy to select what you want and search by color. Combine them all in our Virtual Design Center to see the winning look!

After you’ve decided on your table design, it’s time to tackle (see what I did there?) the other details of the party. Here’s a quick checklist to make sure your Super Bowl runs smoothly.

Food

Serve a mix of healthy and not-so-healthy items to satisfy everyone, and go for both finger foods and heartier fare like chili and other one-pot meals to balance out all that beer. Set up a buffet table on one side of the room where guests can load up on main-course items, then have a handful of smaller tables main viewing area with snacks that people can munch on during the game.

Drinks

Make sure to purchase a variety of bottles and cans to keep everyone satisfied. If you’re expecting a large mini kegs can provide a larger variety of imported and domestic brands and they’ll contribute to the party atmosphere without that frat party feeling. Don’t forget about soda, bottled water, iced tea and other non-alcoholic drinks for the non-drinkers and designated drivers in your group, or for those who just want to take a break in between beers. Leave a few bottle openers laying around so guests don’t have to search for them.

Seating

After food and drinks, your seating arrangement is the most important aspect of your party. Make sure you have enough chairs in front of the TV so no one is left standing. Throw rugs, blankets and large pillows can also be scattered so that even those seated on the floor can get comfortable.

Go Big with Superbowl decorations

Go Big

A Super Bowl party is one of the most popular at-home party events of the year. Much more than a get-together for football lovers, these parties are as much an excuse to get together with friends at the end of the often-boring month of January.
