Host a Football Tailgate!

It's one of our favorite times of the year. FOOTBALL SEASON! Every week you're bound to find The Swoo Crew cheering on our favorite teams while hosting fabulous football parties. 

Check out some of these great ideas that will make a huge impact on your tailgate. Pick your favorite ideas or try them all. Either way, your football fans will love this tailgate party!

 

IDEA #1: BLACK AND WHITE STRIPES ARE THE PERFECT "REFEREE ACCESSORY" 

Black and white paper plates and cupcake sleeves add a "referee" touch while also aiding in serving food. Get creative and use the sleeves to individually serve sliders or peanuts. 

IDEA #2: CUTE BEVERAGE NAPKINS ARE A MUST

Cute beverage napkins are the perfect conversation starter. Pick your favorite or use several different designs. The larger the variety, the bigger the laughs! 

IDEA #3: USE A PAPER TABLE RUNNER FOR EASIER CLEANUP

Nobody wants to spend all afternoon cleaning up when there is a football game to watch! Lay down a paper table runner before setting the table. One like this touchdown runner is green and white to look just like a football field!

IDEA #4: SERVE DRINKS OUT OF A PERSONALIZED GROWLER 

Whether you want to display the name of your go-to tailgate beverage or support your team mascot, you can personalize a growler to say anything you'd like. Some of our favorite suggestions: Tailgate Tonic, Bulldog Brew, and Yellow Hammer. 

IDEA #5: USE MONOGRAMMED GOVINO'S FOR BEVERAGES TO PREVENT BREAKING GLASS

If you refuse to drink out of a plastic cup, but don't want to risk the dangers of broken glass, then buy a few sets of these Govino's. They're made out of BPA-polymer, are recyclable, AND reusable. Add a monogram, name, or phrase for an additional personalized touch!

IDEA #6: SERVE A VARIETY OF FINGER FOODS 

Food prep for a tailgate party can be fast and easy. Just be sure to provide a variety of options like sliders, popcorn, and peanuts. This will ensure that there is something everyone will like. More importantly, when they're bite-size they're easier to eat while standing or cheering on the team!
