Game On!

If you know me, really know me. You were confused when you dropped in today... Super Bowl? What gives? (do people say that anymore?) Yes, I'm (I mean, We are) hosting a Super Bowl Party. Super Bowl XLII Party to be exact! As the host of said party it's important to know who's playing... for the purpose of decorating in the appropriate colors that is. So, after a quick Google search and a phone call to hubby I was off to a good start!

I delivered these clever invitations yesterday. The recipients have to blow up the football to read the rest of the party details.

Here's what I've got planned so far...
One football cake. Easy directions found at About.com Cute football cookies. Found at Pillsbury.comMy own homemade chili with all the fixins. And Costco's Hot Wings. Guests are to bring their favorite snack or dessert to add to the "Chow'n" selection.

Everyone will receive their own yellow "foul flag" to throw when a foul has been called incorrectly.

And because I'll need to be entertained during the game I'll have a few challenges set up for the guests...

Best Game Face - Sport's Fan face paint provided. Peers will be the judge.
Furthest Punt - Paper triangle footballs made and then "punted" over dining room table.
Wagering Winner - There has to be a little wagering, right? Best commercial, MVP... I don't have this one nailed down yet.
Prizes will include: Beer Nuts, Slim Jims, and a real tacky plastic football cup.
The kids will make pom poms to help cheer everyone on with.

Sound like fun? If all else fails, I've asked a friend to bring her knitting along so she can give me a lesson. You know, just in case the game is a dud.

You have plenty of time to make the trip. I'd love to see you here! Ours is the house with the bench out front and Big Blue in the back.
