How to Throw an Inexpensive Super Bowl Party

How to Throw an Inexpensive Super Bowl Party

One of the best parts about the Super Bowl – even for non-football fans – is the exciting parties to attend. If you are planning on hosting a party of your own, we have a few tips to throw a successful party on a budget.

Food and Drink

When it comes to hosting a large party, preparing food and providing beverages is often the largest expense. If you are expecting a lot of guests, it can also be time consuming to create a meal big enough to feed everyone.

To save both time and money, prepare finger food options for everyone to enjoy. Bite-sized snacks are easier to make and there are plenty of them to choose from to please all of your guests. For extra fun, you can make a few dishes football-themed. As far as drinks, instead of buying individual bottles, opt for punch-style options.

If you are pressed for time and can’t make everything from scratch, places like Walmart, Target, BJ's Wholesale Club, and Costco have plenty of easy-to-make finger foods to buy for your party.

If you want to feed everyone, but won’t be able to prepare everything yourself, make your party potluck-style. Encourage everyone invited to bring a dish as well as a beverage. This takes some of the pressure off of you and will guarantee that there is something everyone will like.


No Super Bowl party is complete without festive decorations. Try making decorations yourself to save money. There are plenty of easy DIY tutorials available online, including football rings, a game day bunting banner, and penalty flag napkins. There are so many ways you can make these decorations with dollar store items or even better, items you already have.

If DIY projects aren’t your thing, you can shop at stores like Party City, Amazon, and Oriental Trading for pre-made Super Bowl decorations. All these stores provide a wide variety of décor perfect for any Super Bowl party and available at affordable prices.
