Tailgating Ideas

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?

    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!

    I LOVE the setup! I want to do this setup on our sidebar for our Super Bowl party this year. How did you make the tin cans?
