modern-homebowl-08-smSpeaking of parties… Evite, Coca-Cola® and NABISCO recently invited me to participate in a Home Bowl party contest, (vote for me to win the Top Party Pro contest here) and since I can never turn down an excuse for a party and Rupert is always looking for an excuse to get me to watch more football, I rustled up some friends and family and made a day of it.

modern-homebowl-07-smMy mom and I made a mean cheese plate and finger sandwiches (that Pikku and Cracker kept trying to sneak off with), and we all participated in a little DIY fun, creating our own T-shirts to wear for the Big Game.

homebowl-02sm And this folks, is my family: My mom, rooting for “team underdog” because she could care less about who’s in it but always wants the little guy to win, my dad displaying his hate for a certain team, Rupe more excited about the commercials than anything (especially since one of his will be airing during the big game), and my “I came for the food” tee because 9 times out of 10 that is the reason I show up anywhere.

See more party pics, some tips on throwing a modern Home Bowl party, the info on the T-shirt DIY, and vote for my party to win over on Evite.

  • Oh no! Hate for the Packers??! My poor heart!!
    Still, I am sold on the sassy t’s, like the commercials too, cheese plates, underdogs, and bowl buffets.
