Tailgating Party Ideas for Girls

Get your gal pals together for the ultimate football bash with these tailgating party ideas for girls!

Football season is definitely a time for male bonding, beer drinking and finger licking good comfort food. I have girl friends who are die hard football fans, while on the other hand, I have girl friends who just come for the food and don't really watch the game. Whether you have a true passion for the game or not, football is still a good reason to get the girls together for a tailgating party.

  • Leave the beers for the boys and try these dressed up margarita Jell-O shots . They are a fun and creative way to enjoy your usual margarita and your friends will love taking shots out of lime wedges rather then those plastic mini shot glasses.

  • Skip the pizza delivery and try setting up a healthy pita pizza bar. Using pitas in place of pizza dough, let the girls add their own low cal toppings like mushrooms, onions, chicken sausage and broccoli.

  • Beer pong has always been a great tailgating game, but if you decide to party indoors you might not have the space. Try a friendly game of BasketPong to get the girls in the competitive spirit!

  • Add some sweetness to your guacamole with this recipe including strawberries! The ingredients are simple and your friends will love the twist on a classic football dish.

  • If your friends are as obsessed with nail polish as mine are, they will appreciate a fun nail polish party. Grab your team's colors or brown and white to turn your nails into mini footballs.

  • If you are hosting a tailgating party with girls that mostly aren't interested in the game, try playing LCR. You can turn it into a drinking game by making each person drink when they have to give a chip to someone else.

  • Cupcakes are definitely a favorite at any party, but these were meant for football. Your friends will love these chocolate Guinness cupcakes with Guinness buttercream frosting!
