With Super Bowl XLVII coming up this weekend, we hope you’re making the final party preparations to watch the NFL championship game between the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers.
Even if you can’t make it to the Big Easy, you can still pull together an easy get-together for you and your football fanatic friends. All you need are some essentials (and a few indulgencies): festive food, delicious drinks and one heck of a big screen. Peruse our Super Bowl party-planning guide, below.
Finger Foods and Football
Your menu is almost as important as the game itself. To earn points with your party guests, make sure to include plenty of appetizers and this delicious Target Test Kitchen recipe for the ultimate chicken chili. The chili takes a mere twenty minutes to whip up, so you’ll have plenty of time to lay out chips and dips and warm up finger foods. Once ready, serve up game day fare in a few football-themed bowls and plates—all Target.com exclusives.
Big Screen for a Big Game
You can practically smell the sweat. Okay, so they won’t get you as close as field passes, but these HD TVs offer the best seats in the house—your house, that is. You won’t have to fight for a bar stool or overpay for greasy grub. Best part? You won’t have to huddle around a tiny screen (you really should leave the huddling to the players).
