High End Tailgating Party: Recipes & Decor Round Up

 Tailgating with style collage #AnAppealingPlan

I have to admit I love football season, but the reason may not be what you are thinking.

Is the competition? Is it the game? Is it seeing your team win?

NOPE. None of the above. I love hosting a football tailgate party! Big shocker I know… but what’s better than packing up the car and spending time with friends in a field among other revelers on a cool autumn weekend. Not very many things that I can think of.

I love coming up with new ways to display the buffet, creating new cocktail recipes, trying out everyone’s dips and favorite game day food and don’t get me started on the fun decor! The current trends in tailgating are right up my alley. We are putting the style back into tailgating.

Here are few of my recent favorite trends for high-end tailgating! Dream away.
