The Super Bowl is fast approaching and you've offered to host a party on Sunday for all your friends and family. Now you're stressing out trying to figure out the logistics and it's really starting to get you down, almost to the point of regret. But don't give up just yet. There are many clever ways you can make the whole party preparation process less burdensome.
Streamline the invitation process through social media. Gone are the ancient ways of phone calls and letters. It's all about the Internet. Make a Facebook event. Tweet about the party. There are all kinds of social media tools at your disposal; use them to your advantage.
Give yourself plenty of time to prepare. Do yourself a favor and give yourself at least five full days for preparation. This way, the work will be spread out rather than concentrated. Clean your house on one day, prepare the food on another day, and perhaps decorate on the next. If you attempt to do everything last-minute, you're sure to get burnt out.
Have guests help out with the food and drink situation. Serving all the food and drink yourself can be both expensive and laborious. Make the event a potluck and have everyone bring supplies of their own, whether it's a hot dish or a pack of beer. This way, you'll have more than enough food and drink for everyone without too much effort on your part.
Seek out help from your non-football watching friends. You are bound to have some friends over who are just not that into football. Chances are they'll get restless and bored while everyone else is absorbed into the game. Have them help you out with prep or cleanup. They'll probably be glad to help out, and you can always chat it up while you're working.
After all the preparation is done, don't forget to relax and enjoy the party for yourself. Daniel E. Kann and his associates at The Law Offices of Daniel E. Kann hope you and your guests have a great time this Super Bowl event.
