Super Bowl Party 2010

Wish you could have joined us. We had an empty table and plenty of food. It was a last minute throw together party and most people had already made plans for the day so we decided to see how it would work to set the Big Screen up in the studio.
I need a wide angle lens. The studio is small enough that I couldn't get back far enough to get a really good picture of everything set up.
But maybe you can get a pretty good idea. It was like sitting in a little theater.
See the football decorations on the wall? My mom dug those up from a SB party they hosted in 1996. There's a football shaped chip and dip bowl on the table from that party, too.
I did a little online research on the teams and posted the info on my bulletin board. See the ornery look on my son's face.
He had been teasing my BFF. But she has a son, too, and knows how to deal with it.
Here's the food table. There was chili, cheese sauce, BBQ smokies and pizza in the plugged in appliances.
I just hung the white board that afternoon. BFF made good use of it, changing what was written as the game went along.
Just another angle. You can see a corner of the football bowl.
I couldn't get a picture of the whole screen and part of the table in one shot. I could get the whole screen all by itself but then you couldn't get a feel of the size without something else in the picture.
Below is the table no one sat at. I wanted you to see the decorations on it. I had printed up the team logos and cute them out in approx. 1 inch squares. I also printed out two banners. The Princess laid out the little squares on the tables for me. I think she did a wonderful job, don't you?
At halftime my BFF surprised me with a Birthday Cake! Thanks Sis! I really appreciate it.
Hope all of you out there had a wonderful weekend whatever you may have been doing!

Hi! For the life of me I can't work out this game of yours!

But I do know how to say happy birthday, so "Happy Birthday to you!"

Take Care,

Awww, come on, Peter. What's to work out with football? You got two teams, each trying to take possession of the pigskin and make it past the opposition to score by crossing the goal line. All the other rules just make the game last longer. :)

I'd share some birthday cake with you if you weren't so far away!

Looks like a fun party. I'm not KS Born -- but I do live in SE Kansas -- it's always nice to find a "neighbor"!

Bob Johnson said...

Looks like ya all had a great time, love the cake, and of course the big tv.

Moonshadow said...

Martha, Welcome! I'm always eager to meet fellow Kansans. I hope you come back and visit often!

Bob! To bad you live so far away, you could have come and partied with us. The 'big tv' is actually a big sceen and projector. Can you imagine watching your Natl Geographic shows on it? :)

Hi! Doesn't Kansas have a Rugby Union Club - Rugby, NOW that's a game and a half!

Take Care,

Moonshadow said...

Well, you have me on that one, Peter. I've never seen a Rugby match. But I'm sure it's the same basic premiss: a group of sweaty men trying to score points while trying to keep another group of sweaty FROM scoring points. Right? Everything else, equipment... rules... is just superficial. :)
