I look for an excuse to host a party any time a get a chance. But most of my parties can cost a pretty penny. So This time I’m challenging myself to throw a super bowl party on a budget, while still looking pretty impressive.
Usually when throwing a party, the first thing you need to do is pick a date. But it’s pretty obvious when to have a super bowl party. So your first step is done for you!
Next, send out the invites! I have always been a huge fan of Evite. It is so convenient and it makes it so easy to keep track of your guest count. But if you wanna get cute with it and do something different, you can print your own invites. I found this free printable at Paper Trail Design.
Then you need to start planning out your menu. I am trying to throw a few healthy options in here. But let’s face it… It’s the super bowl and we are just going to be fat today lol.
Slow Cooker Mac and Cheese: $12
No party is complete without some mac and cheese. I decided to go with the Southern Style Slow Cooker Mac & Cheese from the Frugal Ginger.
Football Deviled Eggs $5
My husband is obsessed with deviled eggs. He thinks they are a necessity at any occasion. So I couldn’t help myself when I was these Football deviled eggs from Everyday Good Thinking.
Buffalo Cauliflower “Wing” Bites: $12
I have a few guests who are vegetarian. So I needed to make sure to do another vegetarian friendly dish. These Buffalo Cauliflower “Wing” Bites from Snack Works were perfect.
Snack Stadium: $20
For the star of the show, we are going to be constructing this amazing Snack Stadium from Southernly Splendid. I mean, how cool is this?! And you can fill it with whatever you want.
Loaded Texas Trash Dip: $12
This is basically 7 layer dip, but better! And I can’t imagine a super bowl party without this Loaded Texas Trash Dip from The Recipe Critic.
Super Bowl Sipper: $12
As many of you know, I don’t drink alcohol. So I decided to make these super bowl sippers from We Are Not Martha without the Vodka. I will probably replace the vodka with lemon lime soda or sparkling water.
I will have two options depending on what team you are a fan of. I will serve it as the recipe shows for Patriots fans. And will make it without the cranberry, grenadine, and pomegranate seeds and add a slice of lemon for the Rams fans.
Super Bowl M & M Cookies: $10
For desserts, The first option are these cookies from The Pioneer Woman. Super easy to eat and you can do different color m & m’s for the different teams.
Football Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Blondies: $9
I also couldn’t resist these football shaped blondies from Well Plated. They look so adorable and delicious.
Football Bingo: Free!
I also found these Free printable football bingo cards from Pretty Providence. This would be such a fun game for all ages. It would be fun to have some kind of prize or have everyone throw in a couple of bucks to make it more exciting.
Football Field Tablecloth: $3
I also thought this diy football field tablecloth from Joy’s Life would add a little flare to add to the theme.
Game Day Paper Chain: $2
I think this paper chain from the Centsible Life would be super fun for the kids to make for the party. They always like to help and this is one that would definitely keep them busy.
This challenge to plan a party on a budget has been really fun! Everything came out to under $100! And it will probably be even less than that since I already have a lot of these ingredients and craft supplies at home.
These are all of the ideas that I am planning so far. Let me know if you are planning to do any of these or if you have any other ideas or recipes! Can’t wait to stuff my face with all of these yummy carbs lol.
