The Complete Guide to Football Tailgating by Erin Dove

Hi Shindigz Party Planners! It’s Erin again, back from The Blue Eyed Dove. Summer is starting to wind down and I for one am super excited for fall weather, pumpkin spice everything and football. Now I wouldn’t classify myself as a football fanatic, but I do love a good tailgating party! Shindigz has the best party supplies that will take your tailgating experience to the next level, whether you are cheering for your alma mater or favorite NFL team.

Every tailgate party should display a little team spirit. Table covers and streamers are perfect to use! Football themed pennants on top of your team’s colors is a fun touch, too.

You also can never go wrong by decorating with spirit sticks {that can also be personalized for your team}, pom poms and foam fingers! And when you pack up the tailgate to head to the game you can take these fun props with you.

Why serve your tailgating snacks in boring bowls when you can serve them in football-themed bowls!? One bowl is perfect for chips, and the other bowl is great for condiments or smaller snacks. They also look super cute when placed upon a grass mat!

Need some cups? There are plenty of collegiate cups for you to choose from like these IU cups. And don’t forget the coordinating striped straws and plastic silverware.

You can also choose from collegiate paper plates or stick with the football-inspired. And the same thing goes for your tailgate napkins. I chose to mix and match and opted for the IU napkins.

Game day football picks always looks super cute on top of your team’s color-coordinated cupcakes!

And if you are in the mood for showing more of your team spirit football beads and two-toned leis are the way to go!

Lastly, a tailgate party isn’t really a party without a few games! Be sure to stock up on plastic cups and plastic football-themed table covers {because it’s more fun to play a game on a pretty table cover!}
