Ah, the Super Bowl. The one game of the year where all the bandwagon fans (*raises hand*) suddenly get on board and pretend they’re into football. Whether you're a ride-or-die sports girlie or are just tuning in this year to try to spot Taylor Swift and Olivia Culpo in their suites, just know I respect you. I believe everyone is entitled to sit on the couch and eat and drink to their heart's content during the Big Game, no matter their M.O.

There's nothing better than a Super Bowl party, and lucky for you, I've got a bunch of fun ideas to help you make it happen...and make it really, really Insta-worthy. I did a total internet deep-dive (trust) to find the best Super Bowl party inspo on the World World Web, and even scoured this ol' noggin of mine for some one-of-a-kind party tricks. The result: 25 creative ideas for your 2024 Super Bowl party, below. Read on and remember: don't let your Monday ruin your Sunday.

Send some invites.

BeautifulBoDesigns Football Party Invitation

Rather than simply texting your crew, send out cute Super Bowl party invitations in advance, either via email or snail mail, if you have enough time. You can find tons of downloads on Etsy that you can print or simply send as a digital file, and Paperless Post is a great place to go for online invites.

Pick up a keg.

If you know beer goes fast in your friend group, you might want to consider grabbing a keg. It'll last way longer and probably be a lot cheaper than buying a buncha cans. Plus...keg stands!

Set up an eye black station.
