Step 1. Get the Invites Out

Invite people to your Super Bowl party.  Speed up the process by using an online service like Evite or create a Facebook event.  Evite has some fun Big Game invitations.

Step 2. Food

Make it easy, everyone loves a potluck!  Many people have their own “family dip”.  Here’s one that gets rave reviews at our parties, Mississippi Sin Dip.  Get an idea of what each person is bringing in your RSVP,  then when you get the “What can I bring” question, you can guide them to something you don’t have.

Step 3. Beer and drink

Supplying drinks can be very expensive.  Make it a BYOB (Bring Your Bottle).  Don’t forget to have a sharpie available to mark your drink.

Step 4. Cake

If you love to bake don’t forget a fun themed cake or cupcakes.  Type football cupcakes or cake into Pinterest for more ideas than you will know what to do with!

Step 5. Fun and Games

Superbowl Pool (betting squares), Trivia,  player name drinking games and even some Maden.  Just remember “Gambling is illegal at Bushwood sir” and also in some States.

Step 6. Decorate

Team colored balloons, crepe paper, and mascots make for a festive display.  Don’t forget football shaped plates, a tablecloth and coordinating napkins.

Step 7. Viewing (Superbowl Party Planning most important step)

The most important aspect for your SuperBowl Party Planning should be the game itself. Depending on your space, have the game showing in different locations.
BEFORE game day check all locations you plan to have a screen have some way of connecting to your TV feed.  On the West coast, if you plan on doing it outside, remember that it is still light when the game starts and you will not get an image on a screen that is projected outdoors until around half-time.

It’s a Big Party, I want to show outdoors during daylight hours, what can I do?

LED screens will allow you to view outside during the day. If you have room a LED trailer is a great option, that can be set up quickly.

If a trailer can not be driven into the location, an LED video wall will be your best option (both are available through funflicks.com, depending on area).

Step 8. Non-Football Fans – Puppy Bowl?

If children are present, think about showing the Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet in a separate room.

Step 9. Commercials

Some of the best TV commercials and special effects are used in the Super Bowl ads.  Get interactive and create ballots to vote on the best commercials. Keep the sound up and enjoy them.

Step 10. Cleanup

Make cleanup easy!  Use paper plates, cups, and tablecloths. Put a trash can in each room\area and label recycling, compost, trash, etc.

BONUS for your SuperBowl Party Planning

A stats screen is a great addition to your main viewing area.  You can use ESPN.com NFL gamecast on a laptop, tablet or web-enabled device connected to a larger screen.One of our friends in Washington hosted an amazing football party.  Yes, that is 2 screens, one for the game and one for Fantasy Football stats.  Taking the Man Cave outside!

Air Graffiti Wall

Air Graffiti Wall is an exciting, interactive experience creating virtual graffiti on a digital wall.

So How does Air Graffiti work?

The Air Graffiti screen has a sensor, this detects when the laser spray can is pressed. The software then relates any motion to the screen.

Who’s Air Graffiti for?

People of all ages can enjoy the fun of creating fun images. With Air Graffiti spray cans you can create works of art, help promote a new product with branded screens, or just have fun. The interface is easy and you will be creating fun images in minutes.

What else can you do?

With the addition on a green screen and a DSLR camera you can create a unique photo booth. Spray on a mustache or select one a the built in props to jazz up your image.

Cool picture… Now what?

The software allows you to print, save, share or email your creation. With the use of an HDMI splitter we can project the image onto another wall. I recommend using a fast Dye Sublimation printer.

The features the client gets to use can be crafted to enhance the experience. Want only a couple of options for backgrounds, you can do that. Need to logo every print with your company name, you can do that too.

Need to get the budding Banksy to speed up? You can limit the time for each creation.

I (Paul the Outdoor Movie Guy) love to create art, usually through photography or videography, however this was the most fun I have had in a long time.
