Hosting an Unforgettable Backyard Tailgate Experience
Hosting a backyard tailgate doesn’t have to be expensive. However, there are several creative ways to make any tailgate event more fun and festive.
With a subtropical climate that frequently provides us with warm outdoor weather, even during football season, there is ample opportunity for Louisiana residents to enjoy a few backyard tailgate parties. There are several essential ingredients for the perfect backyard tailgate that we believe can make any event a success.
One of the first steps to a great tailgate party is to find the right décor. Instead of focusing on generic, sports-related items, event hosts can incorporate color schemes that represent the featured team. This will help to create a more festive and welcoming atmosphere. Decorations don’t have to be expensive or bulky. For instance, purchasing combinations of black and gold or purple and gold cups, utensils, plates, and table covers can be enough to set the scene.
Unique Food Choices
Being in the midst of southern and world-famous Louisiana cooking, the need for delicious food should not be overlooked. Party hosts don’t have to just settle for the normal chips and dip combo. In addition to hamburgers and hotdogs, tailgaters can add some local seafood ingredients to the grill, such as shrimp. Hosts can also give their finger foods some local flair. Instead of the normal bread that usually comes with finger sandwiches, use French bread! Then add the desired food options, which can include everything from ham and cheese to hot links.
Tasty food and festive décor aren’t the only things necessary to create an enjoyable backyard tailgate party. Partygoers can keep the competitive atmosphere alive by playing games such as football-themed bean bag toss or a football throwing target practice game. Raffles and door prize games are also great options.
Along with the aforementioned ideas, one of the best ingredients to hosting a fun-filled backyard tailgate is a glistening swimming pool.
