Whether you'll be tuning into this Sunday's Super Bowl for the football, or the legendary halftime show, there is no denying that the sporting event is an opportunity for a celebratory event in your February calendar. 

This year, we're seeing dining tables transform with playful tablescapes, pops of cheery color, and bold floral accents, bringing a joyous mood to your gathering. With all the drama and performance of the Super Bowl, this uplifting color scheme fits perfectly. 

So ditch those plastic red cups and foil trays at the door, this year we're set to impress. I've scoured the web to find my favorite serveware that would give me the crown of host with the most.

Baking dishes

You might not really consider your bakeware to be the star of the show at the party, but Super Bowl party food is often straight out of the oven. Think nachos, enchiladas, and baked dishes that require little effort but a great shared dish that everyone can pile into. For a suitable dish that can go oven to table with ease, these are three cute designs that I've got my eye on.


I definitely have a jug obsession. From charity shop finds to beautiful sculptural pieces, there is always space on my table for a jug or pretty pitcher. Looking for those colorful spring-like patterns in material and color, I've found these three that I'd love to add to my collection.

Chip and dip bowls

Chip and dip is the ultimate party food, but so often we forget to consider the aesthetic, allowing plsatic bags of chips and tubs of dip to litter our table and ruin our tablescaping. I love decanting into smaller bowls, and these have their own handy dip compartment to boot.

Serving platters

A lovely serving platter can sit pride of place in the center of your table. Serving up salads or other nibbles, it's always good to have one ready to make a beautiful centerpiece.
