Super Bowl Party Recap 2013

Did you watch the game last night?! We hosted an annual Super Bowl party and had a fun, full house.  The weather was absolutely gorgeous, perfect for getting some friends together and hanging out in the backyard.  I knew we’d have a bunch of kiddos, so we rented a bounce house for the afternoon.  The kids (and some adults) loved it and bounced ’til dark.

For food, we served a slow cooked brisket and red beans.  The brisket was huge, about 8 pounds, so I was surprised there wasn’t any left at the end of the party.
We also made cream cheese stuffed jalepenos with bacon (I tried to make them a little healthier with low fat cream cheese and lower sodium bacon).  You just pop them in a 375 degree oven for about 20 minutes.  I made three batches and they all disappeared.
Mexican 7-layer dip (refried beans, sour cream, salsa, guacamole, shredded cheese, olives, and green onions) and caprese skewers are a party staple.
Our sweet friends brought spinach dip (that I didn’t get a pic of but was absolutely delicious!), and the cutest,  tastiest cupcakes and cookies.
The kids REALLY had a good time playing together.
And the adults did too!  I admit I didn’t catch any of the game- or the commercials . . . just the half-time show.
What did y’all think?
P.S.  My friend Emily (Decor Chick) is hosting a sale on Joss & Main today.  I know she’d love it if you want to check it out!

  1. Great spread and party! We watched in our pjs. I only watched the halftime show too, but was greatly disappointed. My highlight of the evening was when we got to switch over to Downton Abbey!

  2. All the snacks look so delicious and they are definitely healthier than other snacks out there – well done! It looked like you all had an amazing time! 🙂

  3. What a great party. We stayed home, made homemade pizza. I only watched for the commercials, which were a bit lame this year. Loved the M&M commercial however.

  4. Looks like everyone had a great time! Your food all looks delicious…I'm going to try out your jalapeno's soon!

  5. So fun. You all went all out. Such a great recap and those bacon appetizers look like something I need to try soon. Happy Monday, friend!

  6. Food looked awesome. Here in MD, it was cold with snow flurries so no outside play for the kids. We had jambalaya in the spirit of New Orleans to help keep out the chill.
    Can't wait to try the caprese skewers for my husband's birthday party this weekend.

  7. Yum!!! Holy cow that food looks divine! Love that pic of you and sweet J…and the giant bowl of doritos behind you!!! 🙂

  8. Those caprese skewers look easy and delicious! I'm a sucker for a good cheese dish anytime. Hope you enjoyed one wine with it! 😉 love the pic of you and your sweet boy!
