The biggest game of the year is approaching and you’re hosting, but are you completely prepared for “Super Bowl Sunday”?

Plus, read until the end to find some of our favorite Super Bowl Sunday recipes and Bob's easy alternatives!
Get Your Home Ready
When you are preparing for a lot of guests to come over, the first room you’ll want to tidy up is your entryway. Especially after as much snow as we've recieved lately! Be sure to clear the walk and remove ice or sand it thoroughly. Make it easy for guests to leave their shoes and hang up coats. If you don’t have a traditional entryway, you can find an inexpensive coat rack.
The next room to prep for Super Bowl Sunday is your family room or living room where the action happens. It all starts with a great TV! Take a look at the highest ratings among 200+ trials: Best TV's For the Super Bowl. Make sure the speakers are working if you have them, and have the correct channel ready to go. You will also want to make sure you have enough space for people to sit around the TV. Asides from your couch, you may want to add some folding chairs, ottomans, or even pillows or some Love Sacs for floor seating!
Get your decorations ready
If you want to create a festive and fun environment, you can find napkins, plates, silverware, and other party favors in both team's colors. I encourage you to continue wearing your Broncos gear in anticipation of their return to greatness soon. You can also dress up your food for the occasion by having team-colored snacks and football-shaped foods. Remember Samuel Adams was a great Patriot and continues his legacy with quality beer--an easy way to be subtly festive!
Get Your Evergreen Kitchen Ready
Even though the main point of this party is the Super bowl, there’s a lot of action taking place in the kitchen too. Specially without the Broncos in the game it's likely that a big chunk of your guests don't really care that much about the game. So you definitely need to have this room ready! Clean up your table or counter space to ensure there is enough room for all of the snacks and drinks. Also, have an area set up with plastic silverware as well as napkins and paper plates.
If you have guests with food allergies or dietary restrictions be sure to have an area for foods just for them, this is something they will definitely appreciate. We have a peanut allergy in our family and it definitely makes us conscious! You will also want to empty your trash can before your guests arrive so there is plenty of room to throw away garbage (hopefully this will reduce the clean up after the game too!)
