Super bowl Sunday....

         Super bowl table scape...
So, if you are like me,
you can not have a party
with out putting a fancy spin on things.

Even a party that is mostly for the fellas
needs a little dolling up.
So, here is my Superbowl scape...
It is an all meat and potatoes menu.
A menu with the man in mind.
(Some of the food got eaten before I remembered to take picts.)

The menu was:
sausage balls served with an apple jelly & mustard dipping sauce
hot ham & cheese with poppy seed sandwiches
pigs in a blanket on skewers with a ketchup, mustard & brown sugar dipping sauce
mini fried hamburgers with Colby jack cheese
served on home style fries and topped with a sliced small tomato.
and lastly, a potato bar
I just popped some baby red potatoes in the oven with some spices
and then put topping in small ramekins around them.
I decided not to do any fresh foods or
desserts because, lets face it,
guys just are not going to eat it.
And I wanted my menu to be all about the guys.
I drew a football play on an old chalk board
that I use for different things.
(I got on line, and got a real play. 
 So, that no fellas could laugh at me!)

Of course, the beverages
on ice in a galvanized bucket.
I also set beer glasses out
in case any one preferred.

This is am old football and stand
that I borrowed from my dad.
He played football and then became a referee.
He still carries the chain for WKU, our local college.
And if you know what carries the chains means,
then you know your football!
I also used a strip of the indoor-outdoor carpet
to mimic the look of a football field.
This really gives the table a sporty look and feel.
I scattered whistles and other little
football paraphernalia around on the table.
Whal-la Super bowl party
with a menu of the man
and wow-factor for the woman!
Goooooo Team!
Happy Super Bowl Sunday, ya'll!

hilarious! love the turf as the runner - my mom did a similar idea with her food (of course!) the old football and everything looked great....and yes, I totally can relate to the 'not the ordinary party'

I'm not into football or superbowl or anything like that...Hubby isn't either......but your artful and creative spread has my interest!
I know that any man would like to touch down on your meat and potato spread!

Great job!
