The football season is in full swing, but just like a lot of things these days, it looks a little different. Most fans aren’t allowing fans to tailgate, and others are only allowing a few people in.
So, what’s a die-hard tailgater to do? Have it at home. In this article, we look at how to tailgate at home and have just as much fun.
Pick the Right Decor
When you tailgate on a campus, you see spirit wear everywhere from the clothing to the table decor. Make sure your home shows school spirit, too.
Be sure and decorate your home with your favorite teams colors or even both teams colors.
Consider setting up a tailgating tent in your backyard as well and don’t forget the television so everyone can watch the game.
Pick the Right Food
While tailgating food is often simpler than other grilling fare, you can step it up a notch when you tailgate at home.
Whether you choose a traditional meal or an elaborate, pick the right food for the group coming to your home.
For example, if they typically love your burgers, serve those. Or, if some of your guests like beer, and some like wine, serve both.
Pick the Right Tunes
You want really think about your playlists. Include the best music for yourself as well as your guests. Consider putting together a mix of rock, country, jazz, pop, and hip hop.
In addition, you can throw in both teams individual anthems. This way you’ll feel like you’re right there in the team’s parking lot.
Don’t forget the outdoor speakers to enhance the sound.
Set Up the Television
Your tailgate should be followed by plenty of football. If you can, set up a couple televisions or at least one in a prime spot.
The TV should be big enough for everyone to see it as well.
Give your tailgaters a front row experience right in the comfort of your own home.
