Super party

Jenn Scott February 1st, 2012

Despite several efforts to generate some amount of care, I really have absolutely no interest in organized sports. That being said, I can always get behind a good party … even one centered around a pigskin. For an anti-sports type like myself, the Super Bowl is prime bonding and partying time.

Every kind of person is needed for this big ol’ world to go ’round. Whether that’s yelling at the TV because of pass interference or refilling the carefully selected party bowl with chips, every gathering has its setup.

So, if you’re the party planner, where should you go to get sporty accouterment?

Party Galaxy, if you’ve never been, is a mecca of materials for any kind of party imaginable. With eight metro locations, there’s bound to be one in your neighborhood to save the party-needs day. From table cloths to plasticware to celebratory banners, this joint is packed with it.

If you want to get festive for Super Bowl XLVI, you might consider picking up the plastic cups with tiny footballs on them. They’re perfect for any beverage, from domestic beer to homemade margaritas. Pair it with napkins that feature a close-up of a football, and you’ll have all partygoers covered.

If you’re sure the big win (or loss) won’t incur a ceremonial breaking of glass or other heathen-like behavior, invest in some glassware to impress your guests. Try Kamber’s (7308 N. Western; 840-2122) for a surprising selection ranging from pilsners to wine glasses. Maybe even spring for some candles or diffusers to create an enticing and sensory-driven game day.

One things is certain about the big game: There will be lots of food at the ready, complete with plenty of cheese dips and likely a variety of wings for the dipping.

Whether you’re making everything on your own or ordering it in, an impressive addition for the most persnickety viewers is a food tray or wing sauces from Epicurean’s Pantry (1333 N. Sante Fe, Edmond; 471- 5777). They come in a variety and can include cheese, fruits or balsamic. While you’re in, deal with the beverage front and pick up a box of the Wine- A-Rita, in peach bellini, berry pom, senorita or CosmoRita.

From easy-to-please to the particular, give the gang what it wants this Super Bowl, no matter the outcome of the game. Let’s shop, OKC!
