There's nothing like game day food, and with the championship finally here, it's time for the ultimate spread. While we love a good party sub and beer moment, there's more to hosting a party for the Super Bowl than just ordering some wings. Party ideas like a DIY chili bar, festive cheese boards and even a fun photo booth moment can make the game feel extra special. Whether you're rooting for your favorite team or are just here for the commercials, everyone can agree that they're here for the food.


Let's face it, whether your team is in the championship or not, game day food gives everyone a reason to celebrate. This affordable t-shirt from Etsy is a cheeky way to show where your true priorities lie.
