Whether your team made it to the Super Bowl or not, it's always a great idea to get together with friends to watch the game. Celebrate in style with these Super Bowl-themed party ideas — and don't forget to give it a touchdown dance-worthy name

Halftime Show

A halftime show-inspired party will get your guests excited about dancing the night away with family and friends while enjoying great food and drinks. For a fun spin on a Super Bowl party, have guests wear costumes to represent artists who have performed during previous halftime shows. Guests will have a blast trying to guess which artists they are portraying. Just make sure there aren't any wardrobe malfunctions involved.

Tailgate Party

Have your car parked on your driveway and decorate your trunk with Super Bowl party decorations or one of the two teams' colors. You can display your Super Bowl food and drinks buffet-style to keep things fun and casual.


Pizza Party

Plan a backyard cookout party with family and friends to kick off the Super Bowl. Ask your guests to bring burgers and hot dogs to be grilled at your house while you take care of all side dishes, drinks, and appetizers.

Football and Flannel

Swap jerseys for colorful flannel in a Super Bowl-themed party that's all about cozy but still full of spirit. Instead of sporting their team on their shirts, have your guests wear a flannel with colors that mirror one of the teams playing in the Super Bowl or their favorite NFL team. Cozy? Check. Colorful? Absolutely. Plus, you can unbotton when you've had a few too many dips or wings. 

Multi-Screen Viewing Experience

If you have the space and multiple TVs in your home, consider moving several into the party room. Keep the volume up on only one television, using an extra set of speakers, if possible, to make sure everyone can hear it. The extra televisions should be placed around the room so that all of your guests have a front-row seat for the game. You'll also want to make sure there is a television tuned to the game near where the food is set up so that guests can keep up with the action while munching.

Eyes on the Prize: You're Going to Disney! 

That infamous catchphrase from the winning team: they're going to Disney! For those Super Bowl parties that are more party than football, go Disney with your decor. This is especially great for parties with plenty of kids around. They can enjoy a Disney movie marathon while everyone dresses in their finest Disney attire. Football, who?

Football Pizza-Making Party

Pizza is always a crowd-pleaser for Super Bowl get-togethers, so why not make it the focal point? Invite family and friends for a pizza-making party before the game starts. Set out pre-made pizza dough, sauce, and pizza toppings and encourage the guests to come up with their own football-inspired pizzas. A football field pizza or a buffalo chicken football-shaped pizza are creative designs your guests can absolutely pull off. If kids are attending your Super Bowl party, these football pizza pockets from Picture the Recipe can be a great choice.
