Snack Stadium

Do you know Super Bowl 50 is right around the corner?  Not only is the Super Bowl celebrating it’s 50th anniversary, but my husband is too.  On the same day.

So do you think I should have a 50th Birthday Party for my husband?  Yeah, me too.  But he doesn’t want a 50th Birthday Party.  So I’m having a Super Bowl Party.

I don’t usually go all out for Super Bowl parties when I host them.  Some food, drink, poker and the tv is all we need.  It’s the one time I don’t get carried away with all those creative touches.

But this year….I’m feeling the Super Bowl is a little more special.  It is the 50th Super Bowl afterall.  So I decided to do a few extra touches this year.

I rented a venue (Faulkner’s Ranch in Kansas City) so we’ll have plenty of room to spread out.

I don’t plan to go all out with decorating.  But I did want a little something special.  Enter my Pièce de résistance.

The Snack Stadium.

I just couldn’t resist making my spin on the awesome snack stadiums plastered all over Pinterest.  I grabbed my favorite ideas from all of them and set to work on my own.

It may not be the most economical way to go, but it can be made for under $50 depending on the supplies you have on hand.  I ended up spending about $55 not including the paint.  But it is built to last a lifetime(ish).

The goal posts came from US Toy.  The stadium lights (which really work) and megatron frame can be found at the Dollar Tree.

I already had the plastic hot dog holders and red baskets from a High School Musical party I had for my daughter nearly 10 years ago.  In fact, the stadium plans were drawn up around the dimensions of these items.

As usual, my husband really came through for me.  He built this stadium exactly as I had envisioned, despite thinking it is totally ridiculous (what – a snack stadium is so NOT ridiculous).

After a lot (insert waaaay to much) of debating, I finally decided on a red, white and blue theme.  I wanted it to be adaptable for other parties:  think baseball, basketball, soccer, boxing, and rodeo (because I have a lot of rodeo parties).  No matter what American sport is being played, the stars and stripes are are displayed, so this stadium will match nearly any event.

I also made it so I can easily remove the flags, light posts and megatron to make storage easier.

I’ll post pictures of it with the food after the event.  I just thought I would share my take on the Snack Stadium in case any of you need ideas of your own before the big game.

Now off to do more work on my husband’s 50th Birthday Party our Super Bowl Party. 🙂
