Tailgating Ideas

Tailgating ideas was published first on Uncommon Designs.
It’s here!! Football season!
Nothing says fall around these parts like the beginning of football and with it comes… TAILGATING!

I created this fun table scape with the help of my sweet kiddos!  They wanted a more “kid-friendly” look and, well…you just can’t go wrong with the astro turf table runner and Astro Turf Coozies

I also made these adorable Tin Can Footballs to hold all of the utensils for the tailgate…

Our family tailgates with other families and each of us bring yummy tailgating delights. Two of our favorites are…

 “Palmetto Cheese” Pimento Cheese with Pita Chips


Finally, I finished the fun table scape off with a faux leather Football Banner

Stop on by again this week and I will show you how to create these recipes and football decor! So…who’s ready?

I am a wife and mom to 2 fabulous children. My love for creating crafts, home decor, seasonal decor, and sewing has led me to my desire to share that with you here at Uncommon Designs. I am happy to have you stop by our little slice of the blog world and join us in Creating the Extraordinary! Enjoy!

  1. A.D.O.R.E!!!! I’m gonna have to share this on my Parties for Pennies facebook page. Those football utensil cans are amazing! Great job!<3 Heidi Rew

  2. Love them! I already loved the Coozies, but the football painted cans are perfect!

  3. CUTE!!

  4. That tablescape is totally cute! Love it! My girls would love it too! My oldest (13) keeps reminding me who is playing on what sundays coming up – my brother is a big Colts fan and has passed it on to my girls! and now they are broncos fan sort of because Peyton Manning moved. So I suppose at least some of us will be watching a lot of football this fall! I just bought an antennae for our tv/dvd screen right before the olympics so this will be the first our girls are able to watch football at home. I’m good without it – I would rather read a book!

  5. Great tailgating ideas!
