I attended the VT vs Boise St. game yesterday, and while the outcome wasn’t as I would have hoped I still had a great time. Many of my friends came in town so there were lots to entertain. However, because we took a party bus to the tailgate (planned by local friends) I was not in charge of the table spread. My friends did a lovely job (with only minutes to set up due to the rush on the food). Here’s a look:
Seen on the table (other than some great food) are maroon and orange (VT colors) flower center pieces and a few Hokie Birds.
Penn State is another great school who is really into their football program (they have some great fans too). I really like their tailgate set up. Even though usually I’m very anti-matchy-matchy, with school colors I’m a “fan”.
Here’s a look at a few pics of a great tailgate/tablescape. Find the full story here.
One of the reason’s tailgating is so great is beacause you get to dine outdoors, but it doesn’t mean you have to eat on beer pong table standing up. Here’s a great outdoor tablescape that are almost VT colors. See original blog here. I love the use of flowers.
If you’re dining inside to watch the game, you could always use a football as your center piece to help bring the game indoors. (there’s also plenty of football decor at party stores.)
or if you want something that works for more than just gameday, you can just use the colors. This look would be great for any Redskin’s fan (like myself, httr).
Happy Football season to everyone!
