With the Super Bowl right around the corner, football fanatics across America are planning how they want to celebrate the big night.

Whether your team made it to the playoffs or had a less than impressive record, it’s still a wonderful excuse to gather with friends, eat delicious snacks, and celebrate (or drown your sorrows) with plenty of booze. If you’re thinking about hosting the game at your place, make sure to stock up on these Super Bowl party essentials to prep yourself for a game day that will go down in (local) history.

From the best TV to the best slow cooker, we’ve got all the game day game-changers:

Compostable Plates – $13 for 60-count

Compostable Plates

Everyone hates doing dishes. Everyone hates doing dishes after a big party even more. Forego all that awful clean-up and  opt for these 100-percent compostable Repurpose plates made from plants. These plates not only hold up to a few pounds of food from your buffet without bending, but they also doesn’t put a strain on the environment by sitting in a landfill for 1,000 years — which gives these plates MVP status in the disposable dishes world. Repurpose also has a line of similar cups and utensils.
