After the festivities of the holidays comes an American-specific holiday: The Super Bowl. Whether you're all about the half-time show, Super Bowl snacks and game day dips, or Super Bowl party games, there are plenty of ways to celebrate the big game and have a great time. You don't even have to like football to enjoy the night full of food, family, and fun. Sports fan or not, one of the best ways to get into the game day spirit is to decorate for the occasion. Even just one or two DIY Super Bowl decorating ideas can make the entire event feel a little more special and put together.

This is also a great way to get your kids to participate in the fun by encouraging them to complete a craft that doubles as a Super Bowl decoration. But if you're not particularly crafty, don't worry, because there are plenty of pre-made, easy-to-assemble decorations that look great, too. And remember, when in doubt: Food can be a creative decoration with a little thought and planning, too. A festive dip tray or toothpick can go a long way. Here are 17 Super Bowl decoration ideas to start your party planning on the right foot.
