In order of preference, these are my favorite things about the Super Bowl:
1. Hanging out with friends
2. Fun food
3. Preceding Puppy Bowl
4. Crazy commercials
5. Halftime show
6. The Game
Sorry, guys, unless it’s the Packers or the Bears, the game itself is just a distraction. But that’s just me!
Anywho, whether you’re hosting a party for the Big Game this year or going to a friend’s, here’s a roundup of some of my best finds for Super Bowl party fun.
1. Football Drink Tags
Copy these or design your own to hang on bottles or wine glasses!

2. Beer Stein Vase
You can go all the way and make beer colored ice cubes as they do here, or just fill the glass with water and colored stones for effect.

Pick up some mason jars and kraft paper at your local craft stores and serve up your snacks in these trendy containers.

For the truly ambitious, you can follow Meagan's instructions from Sunshine and Sippy Cups and make this Grand Snackadium...looks amazing!

5. Field of Guac
For the slightly less ambitious (like me!) serve your guacamole in a field design such as this one. Significantly simpler, but will still amuse your guests.
6 and 7. Field Table Runner
Whether store bought or handmade, like these two, a table runner to suit the occasion is always a nice touch. This would look really cool with a couple beer stein vases filled with flowers, don't you think?
8. Football Cookies
I so love decorated cookies. Unfortunately, I never seem to have time to make the really artistic ones that I love to show off here. But these are fabulous! The field cookies with sprinkles for the crowd are super clever!

9. Field of Sweets
This is a fun recipe from Hershey's for their gridiron cake. I especially like the striped kisses for the officials.

10. Football Fingernails
And don't forget to get that themed manicure before the Big Game!
Have a happy day and enjoy the game!
