While doing some Super Bowl blog research yesterday I started poking around on Pinterest. Here’s what I came across:
I was appalled! Chocolate covered strawberries and centerpieces?? For a Super Bowl party? I shit you not, 1800Flowers is advertising the ‘Beer Mug of Flowers’. (Shhh, if you listen very carefully you can hear the sound of testicles shriveling across the 50 states.) Even Martha Stewart would bitch slap you if she showed up at your Super Bowl party and saw this in your house.
One important rule for throwing any party is to know your audience. This can’t ring more true than with a Super Bowl party. The best part of having a Super Bowl party is that it is centered around men. Men who only care about watching the game, drinking beer and, if they’re lucky, seeing boobs. You don’t need to knock yourself senseless prepping for it. Don’t get me wrong, I am not one of those girls who only ‘tolerates’ men. I love men! They are silly and funny and easy to be around. So why not cater to their innermost sensibilities? What is that, you ask? Well, it’s the 4 food groups of a Super Bowl party: Meat, cheese, chips and beer.
Yes, every party should have chocolate. Hell, every DAY involves chocolate for me. But for the love of God, bake some chocolate chip cookies or brownies and have it over & done with. That way you can enjoy sitting with the guys while they tell dick & fart jokes between downs.
