Whose getting ready for game day?! Super Bowl Sunday is just a few short weeks a way and no one wants to wait until the last minute to get ready. Celebrations.com has you covered with their Ultimate Super Bowl Party Guide! Whether you want to to try new recipes like Sriracha Maple Oyster Crackers or looking for gluten free or skinny appetizers Celebrations.com has you covered. When it comes to Super Bowl Party party foods remember these three hot food trends for 2014:

  1. Mini foods are still the easiest to serve!

  2. Have fun and incorporate foods from the cities the competing teams hail from and even foods in the teams' colors.

  3. Sriracha is the perfect spicy food to serve and goes with everything!

Beer pretty much goes hand in hand with appetizers and Super Bowl so instead of filling up a cooler and having the regular stuff, how about serving your guests a Super Bowl cocktail like the Thirsty Touchdown. All you need is bitters, lemon juice, maple syrup, bourbon and pale ale. For complete recipe click here where you will also find a way to make it gluten free too. Curious as to what the best sports beers to serve are? They are:

  • Bud Light

  • Budweiser

  • Miller Light

  • Coors Light

  • Blue Moon

Don't forget to also check out the Drink Calculator here to make sure you have enough drinks to last the entire party! Also check out some great drinking games that will involve everyone in your crowd from the football hater, to the commercial fan, to the half time show and of course the die hard fan.

When it comes to Super Bowl parties, the focus is going to be on the game an food not the decorations. If you want to decorate Celebrations.com offers four different ways to decorate for your party thrifty trendy, casual intimate and sports fanatic. Make sure you check them all before you decide because you may want to incorporate elements of each to create your own party décor.

A lot of people tune in to the Super Bowl for the commercials and the half time party. If you're not into watching the half time show there are alternatives. Change the channel and head on over to Animal Planet for the Puppy Bowl or the Hallmark Channel for the Kitten Bowl!

If you haven't already sent out invitations to your Super Bowl party (and a text message doesn't count!), it's time to get on the ball and send them..ASAP. No need to go out and purchase paper invitations. Celebrations.com makes it easy to send out paperless invitations (evites) that not only save you money and time but they're also eco-friendly and easy to track. Don't forget though to lat your guests know if your party is BYOB, potluck or if you're going to be collecting money for beer/drinks.

Now that you've got the basics down pack for your party, make sure you head on over to Celebrations.com for additional tips and tricks to make your big day a hit. Also make sure you visit Daina Falk, The Hungry Fan for amazing recipes to serve like Gorgonzola-Stuffed, Bacon-Wrapped Dates, Dipped in Bittersweet Chocolate (it may sound outrageous but divine to the taste!), Meatball Sliders and a new twist on potato skins, Healthy Chipotle Chicken Potato Skins.

People come to Super Bowl parties for the food and the big game, but they stay for the football-shaped cascarones. OK, that might not be entirely true. But adding a pop of festive decor really sets the mood for the evening, whether you're throwing a chic and trendy soiree, a thrifty party, a big bash for the hardcore sports fans or a casual get together with a few close pals.
