If you're hosting this seasonal celebration, why not take it to a whole new level and build a Super Bowl snack stadium? (Come on, do you love 'Merica or not?)

Hand-cut old styrofoam packaging, so you have rounded edges. Add cardboard strips to the top four sides of the stadium. Then I added red-check basket buddies to line the (s)eating areas.
