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.
