If you follow me on Instagram (@playpartypin) or Facebook, you know I’m a little Target obsessed. That’s why I’m so excited to be partnering with Target to share what the Super Bowl looks like for me and fun 2016 Super Bowl Commercial Bingo cards! While this post is sponsored by Target, it’s all 100% honest and my own thoughts. I really do love me a good Target run!
In the past few months, quite a few of our friends have moved away, so we’re keeping our Super Bowl party fairly simple this year. I went to Target and picked up a bunch of Target essentials: candy, football team merchandise, frozen snacks, and, of course, party decorations to get ready for our Super Bowl shindig. Rather than going traditional turf football field like I have for all of my other Super Bowl parties, I decided to embrace the black-and-white color scheme that the refs wear and yellow from the ref’s flags. I still included quite a bit of green (because what’s a football party without green?), but I tried to focus more on the black and white this time around.
I love that not only does Target have an entire section dedicated to party supplies where you can find awesome stuff like the black-and-white tablecloth, plates, and cups that I used for this party, but they also have a seasonal section where you can almost always find an entire additional collection of things to choose from. Once you’ve picked out your party supplies, head over to the grocery section, which is what makes Target my favorite. I love being able to pick up everything I need for my parties—whether it is the party decorations, food, or prizes—all in one store! I stuck with my color scheme and grabbed mint sandwich cookies, tortilla chips, Mexican snacks, my buffalo chicken flautas, and kettle corn to round out my party table. And don’t forget the other essentials, like plastic cups, tons of napkins, and paper plates—preferably ones that match your theme.
And you know I can’t host a party without some good party games. Since the Super Bowl is really all about watching the game (and the commercials), I like to keep it simple with Super Bowl Commercial Bingo. I’ve been making Super Bowl Commercial Bingo cards for the past two years, and they’ve been a hit at every party so far. It’s just become a fun tradition that is easy enough for everyone, even the kids, to be involved. And since I don’t gamble, it’s a fun way to have a friendly little competition without the gambling. Instead of using actual logos for different brands that are sponsoring the commercials, I like to incorporate things that may actually show up in one or more commercials—things like dogs and horses. There are a couple of specific things that have been advertised in the Super Bowl commercial previews, so you’ll want to make sure to pay close attention to the commercials while you’re playing (like anyone doesn’t). Those are the best part of the game, right?
I thought it would be fun this year to give out super bowls to the people who bingo—super bowls meaning awesome bowls full of goodies for getting a bingo. I picked up three green bowls (OK, they’re really buckets) and filled them up with great prizes from Target: candy, NFL fan merchandise, and a Target gift card. I don’t know about you, but I’d love to win one of those super bowls.
These are our plans for Super Bowl Sunday. What does your Super Bowl look like? #howifootball
