Football season is here and we couldn’t be more excited! While stadium capacities have been decreased and less people are able to gather in-person at the games, that doesn’t mean the tailgating fun is over. Tailgating at home is the next best thing to being at the game in person, and we might even argue, better! With a few simple tips and tricks, you can turn your living room, backyard, driveway or man-cave into the ultimate tailgating destination.
The Right Decor - Tailgating is all about creating the game-day experience and having the right decor can make all the difference. Set up tailgating tents outside, have the pregame on the TV, and incorporate team colors in fun ways! Colored plates, koozies, and flags are a great way to show team spirit, and you can make it as simple or elaborate as you like. Try out DIY decorations, like this fun Goalpost Centerpiece, to take your at-home tailgate to the next level!
Game Day Food - If we’re being honest, the food alone is all the reason we need to have a tailgating party at home! The game is great, but if you have the right game day spread, you’re happy regardless of whether or not your team is victorious. There are so many fun options when it comes to tailgate food, but the name of the game is to keep it simple. Finger foods are always a good idea and these Cajun Sausage Puffs with Bourbon Mustard are the perfect dressed-up pigs in a blanket! Loaded Nachos are also a crowd-pleaser and they are simple to make and pile high on your plate. We can’t forget dessert! Football Woopie Pies with Cinnamon Cream are the ultimate sweet treats that are festive and delicious.
The Ultimate Game Watching Setup - You can’t have a tailgating party without a great place to watch the game comfortably. This is where Furniture of Dalton has you covered! We have a huge selection of couches, motion sofas, sectionals, recliners, and more to help you create the perfect game day experience. Whether you prefer a movie room setup complete with individual recliners or a large sectional for everyone to pile onto in the living room, our Hooker gallery has it all!
