The Super Bowl is just three days away.

By now, if you’re throwing a party, you’re probably frantic. If you’re me, you’re relaxed yet excited, having dreamt about game day food and beer for the past three weeks. Okay, okay, it helps that I’m not throwing the party… I’m merely attending.

Nonetheless, party planning should be fun. But, as we all know… Pinterest has the ability to inspire us… or overwhelm us. How will our party live up to this lady’s board? Should I decorate? Do I have enough food on the menu?

Many of these questions go through our heads as we sift through Pinterest for inspiration. This time, I’ve done the work for you. Check out these cute party ideas that are sure to make for Pinterest-worthy party photos:

Referee Water Bottles

Sometimes even the most simple ideas can make your party feel complete. To make these ref water bottles, stop by the nearest craft store (Hobby Lobby, Michaels, etc.) and pick up black and white striped scrapbook paper. Cut the paper in strips to fit the width of the original wrapper and… voila! For a more festive (and likely noisy) Super Bowl party, use string to tie a whistle to each bottle. #OffSides

Final Score Drink Tags

God forbid someone touch your beer on Sunday. These cute drink tags will not only ensure every ounce of that ice-cold beverage is yours, it will add some flair to your party… everyone can guess the end score!

If your kind of Super Bowl fun is more aggressive than just guessing the end score, perhaps a game pool bet is more your style. Maybe walking home with a little extra cash doesn’t sound too bad after all.

Commercial Bingo

If you’re anything like me, you’re equally as excited for the commercials as you are for the game. Each year I’m amazed at the advertising industry’s ability to either pull at my heartstrings or make me laugh so hard I pee a little. This year, as you much on halftime snacks, play some commercial bingo.

Carolina Panthers Jell-O Shots

Everyone knows that the Super Bowl and alcoholic beverages go hand-in-hand. After all, what’s the fun in having a party if you don’t have at least one drunk guest making a fool of himself? These Panther Jell-O shots should help with that.

Denver Broncos Jell-O Shots

Not a Carolina fan? Maybe Broncos Jell-O shots are more up your alley. You could choose to be fair and represent both teams… but, ultimately, if you’re the one throwing the party, it’s up to you. Your house, your rules.

The Snack Stadium

Whoever created this monstrosity of deliciousness is a genius. Sure, it might take you awhile to cook up the components and assemble this beast, but it’s doubtful that you’ll need any other snacks on game day. Talk about the whole package.

Individual Seven-Layer Dip

If you’re not into sharing, or simply likes a portable snack for the game, maybe these adorable individual seven layer dips should make an appearance at your party. Preparing them in bulk actually requires a lot less work than you think… and they’re so cute that it’s worth it.

Chili Bar

You can really never go wrong with chili, especially on a cold winter day while watching football. This chili bar is an easy way to make it look like you put forth maximum effort with the opposite being the case.

Chocolate Cheesecake Dessert Shooters

While appetizers may be the main focus of a Super Bowl party, who’s to say dessert shouldn’t be a priority as well? With a decadent graham cracker crust, whipped chocolate filling, and a peanut butter football cookie as a finishing touch(down), these are sure to console the losing team’s fans.
 
Now throw back a beer and settle down!
