Super Bowl Sunday

Wednesday, February 8, 2012

This past Sunday we had our First Annual Super Bowl Party. It also happened to be our first party in the new house! While most of us didn't really care about either team, it was a great excuse to have everyone over, make a ton of food & drink a lot of beer with some of our best friends & family!
While everyone in our group was rooting for the Giants, 
I thought it would be fun to get balloons for BOTH teams. 
We had TWO TV's so you wouldn't miss a moment of the game when you went to the dining room 
to re-fill on food & booze. Our first brilliant idea of the day!
 Our second brilliant idea of the day comes from Luke & his cousin Jenni. They came up with the idea of a Bloody Mary bar. Since the game was on at 3:30pm & guests we likely to be showing up an hour early, it was the perfect time of the day for a Bloody Mary. It turned out to be a HUGE hit with everyone & nothing was left over by the end of the day!
 We had some healthy food, too!
Other food we had, but was not featured in this post: 
Sue's deviled eggs, guacamole & chips, & beef sliders with all the fixins!
Football shaped rice krispie treats! A must for the Super Bowl!

Another must for the Super Bowl is having all of your awesome friends over!! :)

And that's all! :)

    My friends and I were the same about the game... Not too invested in either team, but just happy to have another reason to hang out!
