Gear Up for the Big Game

Once those hard-won games are complete, you may be breathing a sigh of relief that your favorite team has made it to the NFL playoffs. But wait, don't turn away just yet! The Big Game is still looming ahead and there are lots of things you can do to ensure an enjoyable Super Bowl Sunday. This is your year after all, right? If your plans include hosting a viewing party with guests at your house, here are some tips that will help you plan your one-of-a-kind football party.

The teams have already secured their spots in the Big Game, so secure yours as "MVH" (Most Valuable Host) by planning your party through Punchbowl. Start by sending a free digital invitation to your starting roster of guests. You can customize the colors to match your team and play around with fonts, envelope liners, rubber stamps, and postage. You can even upload your own image to a photo card to include a team logo or picture of your favorite player on your invitation.

The Potluck feature on Punchbowl makes it easy to create a sign-up sheet where your guests can let you know what dish or beverage they will be contributing. This takes some of the stress off of you and allows everyone to get involved with the party planning. Guests can also chat with one another over the message board, starting the good-natured smack talk and joking early!

Decorate your home with your team's colors to demonstrate your allegiance. If you're not picking favorites, you can always use one team's colors for half of the room and their rivals for the other.

One of the biggest sporting events in the world deserves a fantastic party! Reinforce yourself with good friends and good food, and then buckle down for what's sure to be a tough and exciting game. Happy Super Bowl Sunday!
