Super Bowl "Just the Commercials" Party (with free printables)

So...who else zones out during the Super Bowl game itself, but then perks up for the commercials? Well, me too! For those of us who don't thrill to every touchdown, I've created a Super Bowl Commercials Party, inspired by ads from the 1950s and 60s. Enjoy!



The extra space on the side is for your party info. Download, add your text, and save in any image editing program, or write the start time and party location by hand, if you're going to print and deliver. Print on cardstock. If you have the capability, these are sized so that two can print on one landscape oriented page.






I don't think this party needs a ton of decor, but a few cheeky pieces on the TV (as in the photo above) gives you something to look at during the game... ;)

Bingo game

Don't just watch the commercials...turn it into a game! The first person to get a full row (or four corners, or diagonal, or however you like to play) wins!

A full list of suggested bingo squares:
A-list celeb, Animals doing tricks, Animated, At-home scenario, B-list celeb, Bar scenario, BBQ grill, Beach scenario, Beer, Burger, Car, Car commercial aimed at women, Catchy song, Cleavage, Commercial that tried to be funny but failed, Computers, Confusing commercial, Country music, Credit card, Fast food restaurant, Former athlete, Mobile phone, Mobile phone provider, Office scenario, Party scenario, Pizza, Pop singer, Post superbowl TV show, Rap star, Reference to Facebook or Twitter, “See more online”, Slo-mo, Snack food, Soft drink, Sports drink, Things talking that shouldn’t be able to, TV show plug, Upcoming movie, Video game, Web site



This is really up to your crowd. You can do it one of two ways...

Traditional Bar Food: e.g. wings and quesadillas washed down with beer
Girly: e.g. sushi, cucumber cocktails, and fancy cupcakes

Which do you think your friends would prefer? You really can't go wrong either way, in my opinion!
