If you’re looking for ways to spend some time in your beautiful backyard this fall, try moving your tailgate party to your deck or yard. Watching your favorite team out in the open, without having to be in the chaos at the stadium is the ultimate way to support your boys. Having your friends and family there can only make it better.
Get Your Grill Out
You’ve gotta eat and grills were made for game day. Fire up the charcoal and grill burgers, hot dogs, or anything else your creative heart desires. Ask each of your guests to spare a side dish for the big game or gather in the kitchen beforehand to make something together. Keep a radio or television near though so you can listen to all the pregame news.
Play a Game
While you’re waiting for the professionals to give it a shot, set up your own game of catch or touch football to get a little energy out. Make it boys vs. girls, or children vs. parents if you have enough people. Otherwise, just take the time to enjoy an afternoon out with your loved ones.
Turn to your love of the game for inspiration on other food items for your tailgate. Everyone has a favorite
gameday food that puts you in the football spirit and there are other foods that can be transformed to look like they belong in on a gameday table. Create a stadium out of your favorite snacks or form dips into the shape of the game ball or other iconic symbols of football.
Plenty of Seating
Make sure your guests have plenty of room to stretch out and watch the game, eat, or just hang out. You have a wide variety of backyard seating options. Choose between traditional tailgating fare like card table and folding chairs or look into beach chairs, lawn furniture, or other comfy ways to enjoy the game or meal.
Be sure to keep track of kickoff so you can be in front of the tv or radio with enough time to cheer your team to victory from the beginning in your own backyard.
