This Sunday is not just all about the game. We know that the food, decorations, and even the commercials sure can be fun too. If you are having a Super Bowl party and want unique decorations without breaking the bank, check out these crafty ideas!
Turn your buffet table into a football field with removable tape and stickers! It is the perfect place for your football-themed munchies. The tape and stickers look great directly on the table, but if
you want to protect your table’s finish, you can cover your table with green butcher paper or kraft paper.
For this project you’ll need a measuring tape, white tape, white number stickers (make sure to purchase enough sets so that you have nine 0s), and chalk or pencil.
Mark off 9 lines where the yard lines will go with the chalk or pencil.
Use the tape measure to find the center of the table (what will be the 50 yard line). Then divide each half by five to get the measurement between the rest of the lines. Make them evenly spaced so that they represent 10 yards each.
Mark down both lengths of the table and then stretch the tape from mark to mark, tucking the edges of the tape underneath the table.
Lastly, put the number stickers on the table, starting with 50 at the middle and counting down to 40-30-20-10 on both sides.
This budget-friendly referee photo booth will add more fun to your party. Even better- you get to keep the memories! It is especially great for keeping kids and teenagers entertained if the game doesn’t hold their attention.

Sometimes, a game becomes too intense for chip-dipping concentration. This is why we have nachos. Piled high with whatever you’d like, these chips are just too good. Paula Deen’s Macho Nachos just take 20 minutes to complete, meaning you’ll be free to watch Destiny’s Child and judge all the commercials! If you’re daring or looking to

This tasty dip, adapted from Karen Solomon’s recent Jam it, Pickle it, Cure it (Ten Speed Press; $24.95), will wow a crowd. And it only requires a few ingredients.
1 (15-ounce) can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1/4 cup loosely packed chopped fresh sage leaves
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
Place cannellini beans in bowl, and mash with fork; set aside. Heat a small pan over medium heat; add 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, and let it warm. Add garlic, and chopped fresh sage leaves. Stir constantly for 4 minutes or until garlic is brown and sage is crispy. Pour hot oil over beans; stir. Garnish with 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil, and add salt and pepper, to taste. Cover and store in fridge up to 1 week.
Combine first 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Add cheese, stirring with a fork just until combined. Divide turkey mixture into 12 equal portions, shaping each into a 1/4-inch-thick patty.
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add 4 patties; cook 2 minutes. Carefully turn patties over; cook 2 minutes or until done. Place patties on a large baking sheet in a single layer. Repeat procedure with remaining patties. Cool patties to room temperature. Cover with plastic wrap; freeze until firm. Place in a single layer in zip-top plastic bags; freeze up to 3 months.
Thaw patties overnight in refrigerator.
Preheat oven to 400º.
Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray. Place patties on baking sheet in a single layer; cover with foil. Bake 10 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Keep warm.
Combine mayonnaise, pickle, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper in a small bowl. Cut rolls in half horizontally. Spread about 1 teaspoon mayonnaise mixture on bottom half of each roll; top each with 1 turkey patty and 1 piece lettuce. Cover with tops of rolls. Serve immediately.
Adjust rack to middle position and heat broiler or toaster oven. Break the crackers in half to form squares and place on a baking sheet. Arrange 4 marshmallow halves on top of each square. Broil for 30 to 60 seconds or until the marshmallows are golden brown. Break each chocolate bar into 12 pieces. Arrange the chocolate and raspberries on top of half the crackers. Invert the remaining marshmallow-topped crackers onto the raspberry-and-chocolate-topped crackers, pressing gently to make sandwiches. Stack them, if desired.
Tip: For more deluxe s’mores, use high-quality chocolate, like Scharffen Berger or Valrhona.
