Dating Advice to Plan the Perfect Super Bowl Sunday

You and your other half have been waiting all season to see which team is going to take it all home. Will it be the Denver Broncos, led by quarterback Peyton Manning and the best defense in the NFL, or the Carolina Panthers, led by quarterback Cam Newton? Take a cue from one of our favorite celebrity couples Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher as well as their celebrity baby Isaiah Michael and host a homey get-together for the occasion. Plan ahead of time to save you trouble in the long-run.

A viewing party is the best way for you lovebirds to enjoy the spirit of the game with your closest friends, and the right decorations, food, and activities will make your party unforgettable. Make sure you have your team’s jersey ironed and ready to be worn for good luck. If you really want to go all out, then decorate your living room and/or backyard with your team’s paraphernalia. It can be as easy as picking up some streamers and balloons in orange and blue or blue and black. If you have pets, don’t forget to get them something to show their team spirit as well!

Since everyone is feeling competitive, you can organize a contest for “best dish” or “best game-day attire.” Then, you can hand-make voting cards, and on the day of the game, everyone can decide whose food and whose outfit they like best.
