Super Bowl Open House


Super Bowl Sunday is a special day for our family. It's a party with a lot of food, some fun commercials, family time, and oh yah, there's is a sporting event on the tv.


The food theme is different every year (sometimes inspired by the teams that are playing or the venue) and we add to our decorations every year. Here's this years' rundown.

The Decorations


I made 3 more team pennants. I've made almost 20 now. Welcome Bengals, Dolphins, and Cowboys.

The football field banner is decorating our kitchen window.


The usual football field platters, football plates and bowls, felt football coasters, as well as our football cheese spreader and bottle opener all make a comeback this year.


The Food

Specially brewed rootbeer (regular and diet) from Brew Bakers in Huntington Beach.


Giant Football Calzone. I used storebought pizza dough and filled with pizza sauce, lots of cheese and veggies. We also had a ziti pasta with the same sauce.


Pretzel Sticks from Brewbakers with homemade marinara sauce (leftover from the calzone). We also keep chips and veggies around for snacking.


 Knock-You-Naked Brownies from Pioneer Woman's Recipe.


Peanut M & Ms.


 Jell-O Jigglers Helmets in sugar-free lemon and strawberry banana.


The Entertainment

We are playing Bingo during the game this year. I found these fun Super Bowl bingo cards online from Parade Magazine

and of course a lot of cool commercials. :)


I hope that you have a wonderful day. Thank you for vistiting We Grow By Our Dreams.
I have lots more projects and tutorials on my other blog, The Vintage Sheet Blog.
