Get your favorite football fans (and not so fans) together for a fun and easy tailgating party. These tailgating ideas are easy, avoid the fuss, but still create a festive football atmosphere that will get everyone pumped for the game.
When it comes to tailgate decorations, keep it simple. You'll be surprised how just a few printed party pieces, balloons and football embellishments can dress up the back of your car and liven up the team spirit. Our truck got decked out quick and easy, and the clean up was just as fast!
The same keep it easy rule applies to food as well. Burgers, dogs and ribs are great, but they're messy, can't be made ahead of time and always seem to be on the menu. For tailgating foods for a crowd, opt for some zesty chicken wraps, spicy potato salad and cruncy chocolate grid iron dessert bars. You'll score big with this tailgate menu!
Finally - it's not a tailgate party with out a few drinking games (for the adults)! Rock out, drink up and enjoy the game!
