    • Hosting a Superbowl Bash on a Bashful budget

      Nothing says excitement like sitting on the edge of your seat, surrounded by a roomful of friends as you all scream at the television to cheer on your favorite team. Here are several affordable, yet delicious recipes that are sure party pleasers.
      Make it Potluck- Times are tough, times are hard. . . Lots of people are feeling the pinch in their wallets. While you may want to hold a giant bash at your place, don't feel as though you have to foot the bill entirely. Consider making your party a Potluck!

      Divide your party menu into various categories and when your guests ask what to bring, give them a choice of several different categories to choose from such as Dips (Cold, Hot, Spicy), or Chips/Dippers (potato chips, tortilla chips, pretzels), Hot Appetizers (Armadillo eggs, crescent pizza bites), Main Dish (chili, baked beans, etc)

      If you'd rather provide the food yourself, perhaps you ought to consider a BYOB party!

      BYOB: Bring your own Beverage - cut down on the expense of providing cases of beer, cocktails or soda/pop. Add a little BYOB note to your invitations. You could always provide lemonade & or iced tea on the side.

      • Hang Crepe Streamers in various sizes in the teams colors
      • If kids will be attending, Have a football Pinata (filled to the brim with candy/treats) ready for Half-time!
      • Dollar Store Wrapping Paper- Dress up your serving & snack tables with team colors- check your local dollar store for wrapping paper in your favorite teams colors and use it to make your own tablecover. A little touch of tape on the bottom and it's secure. Sting crepe paper streamers from the sides.
