Red Tailgate Party

Tailgating in Style

We are working on lots of fun tailgating ideas (check back soon for more!) so we thought we’d start things off with an N.C. State themed red tailgate table! This is a  fun way to add a bit of fancy to your tailgate table with wine goblets and flowers! The wives and girlfriends will thank you for the touch of style.

Whoever said you can’t eat atmosphere never went to a tailgating party.  Pulling into the football stadium parking lot and seeing all the tailgating parties lets you know the fun is about to begin.  Arrive early with lots of your best mouth-watering recipes, good friends and you will have a fabulous time.  Don’t forget to bring a portable TV to watch the pre-game coverage because this just adds to the excitement.

Fun tailgate idea — If your school’s colors are red, yellow, orange or green … use hollowed-out bell peppers to hold vegetable snacks such as carrots, celery sticks, or even as a dip container.
