Clearly I have high hopes for WFU this season.
Football season has arrived! I enjoy the cooler temps, I will drink PSL’s all season long, the leaves changing in the Blue Ridge Mountains are a sight to see, BUT what I love most about fall is FOOTBALL SEASON. We are lucky enough to live in the same city as our Alma mater, so Game Day is a big ritual full of tailgating and camaraderie. But our love for football doesn’t end on College Gameday. My husband is a big Panthers fan and my first words were GoPACKGo. Our fall TV schedule is geared towards the weekly games, which I enjoy much more with a partner who can answer all my game logistic questions. Football is the most captivating to me, but I would be lying if I didn’t say the social aspect and build up to the game is my favorite part. Hence why this post is about Tailgate-Style. I am a believer that your game-day attire, if not sporting the team logo, should at the very least be in the school colors. Similar to this outfit, I usually mix different old gold and black colors with different fabrics and accessories. The top is actually a dress that I paired with pants to be more comfortable since the dress is so short. Flats are essential because hopefully you will be standing cheering the team to a win. What do you guys think- team logo and shirts or mix styles with color and accessories? What are you favorite styles to support your team?
Top 5 Essentials for Every Big Tailgate
- The Food. Tailgates are made for good, easy, and greasy food. Think quick macaroni bites or pizza rolls.
- Cornhole Boards. or Baggo for you northerners. This is a perfect game for all ages and is even more fun if you host a pre-game tournament.
- Bottle Opener. This small little gadget will be surprisingly missed if forgotten. Although entertaining, you don’t want to be stuck banging your glass around to get the bottle open.
- Prime Parking Spot. Depending on the football arena and parking lot you might not have the choice in your tailgate spot. But if you do, look for a spot close to the stadium and in a corner with room to spread out. Try and park your whole crew near each other to spread out even more.
- Team Paraphernalia. Decorate your tailgate spot in team colors and logos. Skip the fancy plates and platters and opt for plastic ones with the team logo.
