Super Bowl XLI is just a couple days away, but if you want to host the perfect game day party, the work begins now today.

When it comes to food, decorations, or dessert; some party planners can add a win into the column under Super Bowl XLI.

'Party Starts Here' covers the field when it comes to decorations.

"Right now, everyone's buying balloons for the Super Bowl game," said Jason Hale with Party Starts Here.

'Wild Wing Cafe' can wipe away the worry concerning food.

"We've actually had to put on another host in the evenings just to take orders," said Chad Ragland of Wild Wing Café.

Chandler's Bakery can top of the evening with its desserts.

"It's pretty busy. I always say people always come in like grapes, and that is in bunched," said Marie Berman of Chandler's Bakery.

Wild Wing Café catered 14,000 chicken wings to Super Bowl parties in 2006.

Manager Chad Ragland expects his wings to gain more yards from his dining room to parties for 2007.

"We have about 50 order already with about 6,000 pre-ordered, but we expect to do about 20,000 for Sunday," added Ragland.

Jason Hale with 'Party Starts Here' has his game face on to make sure no one will be penalized for not keeping the party area clean.

"We still have a lot of plates, cups, napkins, and table covers. We have decorations and supplies in stock still," added Hale.

Marie Berman and others who work at Chandler's Bakery are smoothing out all the edges on cakes in the shape of a football and cupcakes.

Instead of a referee's whistle, the constant noise has been a telephone ringing with people making orders.

"I would say probably at least a hundred. You know, people do come in, and this is a place where people do plan parties," added Berman.
