You’ve waited all season long for it. You’ve followed the players. You’ve caught all of the action. Now here’s how to make the most out of watching the big game with a variety of tips and useful hints to host the perfect party and catch all of the action in high-tech style.
It’s the one Sunday every year that is practically a national holiday. There’s no better way to celebrate than by hosting your very own party. From preparing the food and decorating your home, to getting the most out of your gadgets and entertainment technology, we’ve compiled a list of helpful ways and tips to get the most out of your party from kickoff to the final whistle.
Next to the action on the field, food is the main attraction of any big party, so make sure your refrigerator is packed with the essentials. Everyone loves burgers and hot dogs, but there are a variety of other delicious snacks, munchies and hors d’oeuvres you can serve your guests. It doesn’t have to be fancy. In fact, many times the simpler the food, the more people enjoy it.
Arrange everything on colorful platters or football-inspired containers and place them in different areas of the room for easy access. Be sure to have plenty of beverage selections on hand as well to wash it all down.
Remember to keep your party as relaxed as possible. Make sure there’s a comfortable chair or spot on the sofa for each of your guests so everyone can stretch out and enjoy every minute of the game. No one wants to have to stand for three hours or crane his or her neck to get a glimpse of the action on the screen. If you’re thinking of upgrading your TV for the big game, take the time to evaluate your space so you get the right-sized TV for your room, and remember to look for features that will enhance your TV-viewing experience, like slim bezels, amazing picture quality and access to great content.
If you’re limited on space, try setting up additional TVs in other parts of your home so there are great viewing angles no matter where you’re sitting. It’s also a good idea to create separate viewing rooms or areas—one for the die-hard fans who don’t want to miss a single second and another for the more casual partygoers who’d rather mingle and chat.
Got a favorite team in the game? Then decorate your party with your team’s colors, pennants, banners and memorabilia. Or if you don’t want to pick sides, color-coordinate your party’s decorations with both teams’ colors. You can even pick out paper plates, napkins and cups to show off your team’s sense of style.
Nothing brings the big game to life like having the capabilities at your fingertips of your Samsung Smart TV. There are TV apps available that can enhance the viewing experience and blow your guests away.

Most importantly, remember it’s a party. Emotions may run high (especially if it’s a close game), but you want to make sure that all of your guests have a great time. One way to spice up the party is to have everyone write down their predictions for the final score, who scores first, combined total score—you name it. Make sure to have prizes on hand for the winners to keep everyone enthused and in the competitive spirit. So no matter what the outcome of the big game is, everyone is sure to go home a winner.
