imgur: the simple image sharer
Don't let the Super Bowl overwhelm you, Pinterest has all the DIY and recipe solutions you could need for this Sunday. 

If you haven’t noticed, this week has been consumed by all things Super Bowl, and fans (and even non-fans, we’re guessing) are preparing for Sunday. If you’re hosting friends and family, you might already be freaking out about how you’re going to put together a party in a matter of days.

Thankfully that’s what Pinterest is for! Featuring ideas for everything from decorations to desserts, if the virtual pinboard site can help you host a stress-free Thanksgiving than the Super Bowl should be a breeze. Here’s a complete guide to throwing the ultimate Super Bowl party with a little help from your fellow pinners.



If you’re a fan of the Denver Broncos or Seattle Seahawks than your decorations can be pretty simple. You can stick to team colors and team-specific signs. On the other hand, if you’re more of a general fan without a stake on either side you might need to get creative with the football theme. Here are a few ideas for setting the mood.

How to silence the Super Bowl
Football, despite what my Chicago Bears-obsessed father would try to tell you, is not for everyone. As the most reluctant member of a Midwestern family devoted to the pigskin, the Super Bowl is my Mt. Everest of not caring about football.
