Plan the perfect last-minute Super Bowl party with one of these simple yet awesome ideas.
If A Lot Of People Are Coming Over...
Call Olive Garden, like now. The popular Italian restaurant chain now caters. (Pause for jumping jacks.) To make it happen, call up your local location and load up on lasagna, fresh salad, breadstick sandwiches and delicious gourmet grilled chicken or vegetable piadinas. The food arrives on time (we tried it ourselves!), hot and with plates and utensils for all. And, just like that, everyone will love you forever. You’re welcome.

If You’re Just Having A Few Friends Over…
Borrow a gourmet wing recipe from one of the top chefs over at Panna. In honor of the Super Bowl, they’re offering 11 delicious recipes and video tutorials for non-members to enjoy. Since you can’t have a Super Bowl party without wings, we love this Tamarind Chicken Wings recipe. They’re sure to go fast, so you may want to double up on the ingredients.

if It's Ladies Night Style...
Sweet treats are required, and who has time to bake? Serve your guests delicious cupcakes to represent both teams with a little help from Ava's Cupcakes' Super Bowl 50 collection. They ship nationally and arrive with all the decorating done.

If Your Decor Budget Is Small...
You should know that balloon bouquets are your friend. Head to your local party store and select an arrangement of football themed balloons, then mix in your team's colors. (We love the special Super Bowl 50 balloons from Party City.) Balloon bouquets fill corners in any space and they're an instantly eye-catching when your guests walk in.
If You're An Online Shopper...
If you're an Amazon Prime member, there's still hope for your Super Bowl party. Search for easy, fun decor and select "prime one-day shipping" to have it in time for Super Bowl Sunday. We found this tablecloth online, and you can get it tomorrow. Once again, you're welcome.
If You're Worried About Keeping Guests Busy....
Not everyone who will attend your Super Bowl party is there for the game. Whether they're "just here for the commercials" or to socialize, if you throw in a drinking or party game during commerical breaks, everyone will get in on the fun.
