There is less than a week to go until Super Bowl Sunday. Your guests are invited. Your shopping list is ready. You’ve picked up your home (as much as you care to). What’s left? It’s easy to forget the little things in the midst of planning a party, so to help with your event prep, I pulled together some ideas and must-haves.
