January 17, 2020 by Lauren Rowert
Even if you’re not a huge football fan, the big game is an event that a lot of people look forward to. Whether it’s the commercials or the rivalries, almost 100 million people tune in year after year. After all, it’s the perfect excuse to get together with friends and family for great food, tasty drinks, and fun times.
Is this the year you decided you wanted to host a massive football-themed Super Bowl Sunday party with all the food and drinks your guests can handle? It’s an admirable task, but not always the easiest one to make a reality.
Lucky for you, Howard’s has you covered with some Super Bowl party ideas that’ll help make your game day one for the books. If you follow ‘em all, you might just be able to sit down and enjoy the halftime show!
Use Two TVs
A lot of people use the Super Bowl as a reason to upgrade their TV, not only because they want to show off to their friends but because the multitude of promotions and deals makes it hard to resist getting that much-needed upgrade.
Make use of the extra screen by creating two viewing areas. Give hardcore fans the full experience with a brand new XL (extra large format) TV in the living room. For those less interested in the play by play consider placing your old TV in a separate area of your home to create a more casual viewing experience. If you’re fortunate enough to live in a warm-weather climate, may we suggest the patio?
Or you can take it a step further and use a Samsung smart hub refrigerator. The built-in touch screen can mirror your TV so you’ll never miss a single snap, even when you’re in the kitchen getting a refill.
Get Your Audio Right
As nice as football-themed party decorations are, having your game day audio right is a significant boost to the party and viewing experience. Even with an ultra HD TV, having a good soundbar or sound system can create a home theater atmosphere.
Soundbars and sound systems are more affordable now than ever and still deliver a vastly improved audio experience, whether it’s for some pregame tunes or hearing every tackle once the big game starts.
Skip the Oil!
Air fryers are here! ! They help you create irresistibly crispy finger-foods without all the unhealthy oils. Plus, no messy cleanup and disposal. So it’s a win for your New Years’ resolution and your post-party cleanup efforts.
Air fryers are so innovative that they’re now being incorporated into the kitchen range. You can air fry wings while you make delicious sides like dips and veggies. Even better, make air fry homemade tortilla chips and keep the stovetop open for heating up a tasty bean dip. Craving something spicy?

Don’t Skimp on Ice
One of the hardest parts about entertaining is keeping everything stocked. When it comes to ice nobody wants to be the guest that’s asked to “grab a bag of ice” in the middle of the big game. Plus, it’s hard to anticipate who likes crushed or cubed!
LG refrigerators with Craft Ice™ automatically create crushed, cubed, and LG’s exclusive slow-melting round ice on demand, for upscale, craft drinks at home—without the work. If you love to entertain, this is the refrigerator for you.
Use Your Dishwasher
One last Super Bowl party idea, and it’s a super easy one -- load dishes in your dishwasher and run a cycle as you go! For the ultra-entertainer, consider adding an extra dishwasher near the bar or in the butler’s pantry to ensure you always have a clean cycle. If you use disposables, cleaning up is as easy as taking out the trash, for a more eco-friendly option..load up the dishwasher and let it handle the big mess. May the best your favorite team win!
