Here are some of the ideas that I will be personally using at our party. Check out the Mardi Gras Super Bowl Ideas on Party411.com for more!
1. the most important thing at a Super Bowl party... the MENU! The name of the game for me is easy. I want to be able to enjoy the game and party. Fortunately several of us team up on the party food. Here is the plan for our New Orleans theme feast:
Muffuletta - I loved these sandwiches when we visited New Orleans last year, and they are perfect for a Super Bowl party. I'll make them in the morning and cut them right before game time. I am using this recipe on allrecipes.com
Cajun Dip. With veggies, made with Tony Chacheres Original Creole Seasoning, from their website.
Our Favorites - Even though the theme is Mardi Gras, it wouldn't be Super Bowl without our favorite football foods:
- Buffalo Chicken Dip
- Pig in a Blanket
- Bacon Wrapped Cheese Jalapenos
2. Decorations and very important, especially if you are doing a theme like Mardi Gras. I need to keep it simple, since the party is at my cousin's home. I will already be bringing over food and our dog, so I can't cart too much else.
Beads - #1 for a Mardi Gras party. I am going to wait to see what the team are, and order in team colors. Masks are big too, but my group won't wear them.
Crepe paper - eays and inexpensive. Yellow, Green and Purple!
3. Activities - The main activity is watching the game and the comeercials (of course). But we also like to bet on the game. Here is a pic of our big winner from the 2012 game with our Super Bowl Betting Board (courtesy of Party411!) We're going to do it again this year.
