The biggest television event of the year is back! And whether you actually watch the game with an invested eye, or just like the commercials and the snacks, the Super Bowl is the perfect excuse to throw a small party — although this year, a virtual gathering is probably more practical and safe. But before we dive into the best Super Bowl party supplies for your in-person or virtual festivities this year, let’s cover some of the basics.
Super Bowl LV is on Sunday, February 7th, at 6:30 pm ET. The big game is set to be held in Tampa Bay and will officially air on CBS and CBS All Access. For the match, the Kansas City Chiefs will face-off against Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Not to mention, four-time Grammy Award-winning artist The Weeknd will be performing at the half-time show, with 22,000 folks set to be in attendance.
Unless you’re one of those in attendance, you’re likely watching the game at home. In any event, these Super Bowl party supplies will help you make a major touchdown on game day. And if you’re wondering how to host a healthy Super Bowl party, be sure to check out more of our articles!

2. Anker Nebula Apollo Wi-Fi Mini Projector
If you’re going to watch the big game, you need to rock it out on the big screen. We’ve got plenty to say about the best portable projectors on the market, but we think the Anker Nebula Wi-Fi Mini Projector is perfect for displaying the game outside during a socially-distant gathering. The projector fits in the palm of your hand, making it super simple to plop wherever you see fit. It features touch controls and connects to YouTube, Netflix, Hulu, and additional devices, so this will be handy long after the game ends.
3. Football Chili Bowls
BEST (SUPER) BOWLS
What’s a Super Bowl without a bowl? Whether you’re munching on delicious game day chili or serving-up a cold treat during half-time, these field-line-styled bowls are the perfect fix. These nifty Super Bowl party essentials come in a set of 12 and cost under $10 bucks, so no one (not even your wallet) loses.
4. Football Cardboard Cupcake Stand
BEST FOOTBALL CUPCAKE STAND
Sure, this is a cupcake stand by name, but if you think a little outside of the box, this also makes for a great hors d’oeuvre stand or finger sandwich display. The three-tier stand is made out of recycled cardboard, which can be disassembled and reused more than once. From top-to-bottom, the platters measure 7″, 9″ and 11″, respectively, so there’s plenty of room for game-time munchies.
5. Sunny Anderson’s Infladium: The Inflatable Snack Stadium
BEST SNACK DISPLAY
As if snacks aren’t already the center of attention at any Super Bowl party, this inflatable football stadium snack display locks down the championship title. Now, you could use this set one of two ways. It comes with a vinyl inflatable stadium exterior, which serves as the perfect beverage container, or you can pop in the card stock stadium stands (the setup comes with 12 of them) to pack the stadium with snacks. Whichever option you choose to go with, it’s guaranteed to start a conversation or two.
6. Sunny Anderson’s Football Truck Utensil Caddy
BEST UTENSIL CADDY
No game is complete without the perfect tailgate food truck, right? And even though this year’s Super Bowl celebrations might look a little different, that doesn’t mean we can’t have a food truck on site. The clever utensil caddy, shaped like a stadium food truck, is the perfect attention-grabbing space to plop your forks, knives, spoons and cocktail napkins. But what we really love is the detailed menu board on the truck, which advertises “Field Goal Fries” and “Touchdown Nachos.”
7. Game Day Football Tablecloth
Between all those smothered wings and game-day brews, there’s bound to be a mess or two, so it might be best to put down a tablecloth. This one measures 4.5′ x 6,’ and it’s made of hard plastic, making it a durable solution that can fit most tables. Plus, for only $10 bucks, you get four of these bad boys. So, whether you have a few tables to cover or want to keep them for Super Bowl parties in years to come, it’s a great deal.
8. Super Bowl LV Football Cake Topper
BEST CAKE TOPPER
When it’s time for the most important meal of the day, don’t leave the cake on the bench. Don your dessert with a festive cake topper that features the Super Bowl LV logo. It’s even got a championship trophy in the center, which is as close as some of us will ever get to holding the coveted honor.
9. Ceramic Football Stadium Chip and Dip Serving Set
BEST CERAMIC SET
If you’re looking to invest in Super Bowl party supplies that will last long after the final touchdown is made, this ceramic football stadium chip and dip set is the perfect piece. The hand-painted dish set features a stadium with tons of adoring fans and an accent football-shaped dip bowl. It’s a total win for the center of your food table, but just be sure to hand wash it as you don’t want the craftsmanship to wear off completely.
