Sandra Downie from The White Library party planning and entertaining blog wrote to me about the DIY projects she did for a fun Super Bowl party. She proposed easy recipes that are served at the stadium. Her DIY projects are so simple that you still have plenty of time to make it happens. I added my suggestions to hers.
First of all, select a color palette. You could show your allegiance to your favorite team by only using the team color or oppose on each end of the buffet table, the colors of both teams. If you opt for the second option, try to simulate the field with your tablecloth.
Sandra nicely styled Bacon Mac & Cheese Bites. She made a traditional mac and cheese recipe and then, with a mini melon ball scooper, put scoops of the mac and cheese in a mini cupcake pan. She then sprinkled bacon bits on top. Another option would be to mix the bacon bits into the mac and cheese. A Game Day pennant decorate each bacon mac and cheese “mini-cupcake”.
To make your own fries containers, simply cut in half plastic drinking cups and line the top edge with coordinating ribbons. For better tasting fries, I suggest that you place a sheet of parchment paper inside the cup before serving. Or you can stamp print or draw an illustration with Sharpie pens on small food-safe brown paper bags. You can find these bags at Alimentation Aubut in Montreal. Another option is to stop by a local hotdog restaurant and ask them to sell you a few empty fries bags.
You will find the templates to print your own pennants and field placemats at Megpies.
