    • Save Money on Your Super Bowl Party

<span style="font-weight: bold;">A shrinking economy shouldn't keep you from hosting a Super, Super Bowl Bash this year. Here are a few clever, money saving tips to get (and keep) the party going.</span>

<span style="font-weight: bold;">1. Serve traditional Super Bowl food and make it a team effort. Assign guests a dish to bring and share the work and expense.</span>
Over the years we have hosted our fair share of Super Bowl parties and the one thing that remains constant is the food. The Super Bowl calls for "guy food". You know the kind you can eat with your hands so you can watch the television. All kidding aside, without some chili, nachos or a foot long sandwich, it just doesn't feel like the Super Bowl. Keep your china in the closet and put out the paper (try eco-friendly brands from greenpartygoods.com or seventh generation products available in supermarkets) for serving the items below.

<u>Favorite Super Bowl Food</u>.
Score big, these foods are great for feeding a crowd without breaking the bank:
Nachos,
Chips, Dips and Nuts,
Sandwiches,
Pizza,
BBQ Pork,
Chili,
Ribs,
Italian Sausage,
Hot Dogs, and/or
Chicken Wings.

<span style="font-weight: bold;">2. Save money on decorations and let your guests be the decorations.</span> Ask guests to get in the spirit by wearing the colors of the team they are rooting for or don a team jersey. A room full of football fans dressed for the game will add all the spirit you need. If you simply must have decorations try http://sports.ziggos.com/ for good deals.

<span style="font-weight: bold;">3. Provide inexpensive fun for the kids.</span> Buy face paint and ask someone to transform your young guests in football fanatics. This will entertain the kids (and all your guests). Take pictures of your football fanatics and send them home as momentos.

<span style="font-weight: bold;">4. Pick a few items to serve as beverages and buy them in bulk.</span> Offer 3 choices instead of 6 and save money.

<span style="font-weight: bold;">5. Stick to basics for dessert and save.</span> Avoid buying overpriced cookies and cakes decorated for the Super Bowl. Instead bake brownies and chocolate chip cookies - they are always crowd pleasers. Jello is also a very inexpensive, but fun dessert. Serve it up layered with whipped cream and fruit or make Jigglers for the kids.
