Whether you’re tuned in to watch the Patriots, the Seahawks, the halftime show, or the commercials, the big game is on Sunday, and we want to make sure you’re ready to plan an amazing get together - even last minute!

1. Cozy Atmosphere

You don’t have to have the biggest flat screen or sickest surround sound. Just make sure there’s a spot for everyone and they can see the TV. You can always bring in chairs from the dining room or get creative with floor pillows.

2. Beer

Football and beer go hand in hand, so make sure there’s plenty to go around. If you want to shake things up, ask guests to bring a 6-pack to exchange and share. Why not pick up a pack you’ve never tried before?

3. Food

You gotta’ have some snacks. Game staples like hot wings, chips, and dip are definite crowd pleasers, but it doesn’t hurt to have a range of options so everyone is happy. Here are some easy recipes that won’t take a lot of time.

4. Place Your Bets!

Care to make things a little more interesting? Before the game starts, ask guests to place bets on the score at the end of each quarter. You can pass around this printable template for guests to mark their bets and contribute to the pot.

5. Partyware

Make cleanup easy with paper plates and plastic cups. Our Cheeky chevron prints are perfect for the Big Game. They’re royal blue - like your favorite team - and you won’t have to do any dishes after the game ends. Plus, for each Cheeky item purchased at Target, Cheeky helps donate a meal through its partnership with Feeding America. You can’t lose.
