Home-gating? Score Big with Tailgate Food Favorites!

With social distancing practices in place and many venues closed to the public due to COVID-19, sports fans are turning to the at-home tailgate party to still be a part of the action. If you have a family of fanatics who are missing their traditional sports season rituals, bring the hype and nostalgia home with tailgate food favorites found at your neighborhood grocery store! Here are a few home-gating party ideas that are sure to be a hit with your quarantine crew.

Great Food
Good eats are a must for any at-home tailgate party! Besides the traditional chili, seven-layer dip, wings and pigs in a blanket, you can diversify your gameday spread for the pickiest of palates. Why not branch out with Cajun-inspired crawfish pie, low-carb, diet-friendly cauliflower breadsticks or and cookies and cream dip for those with a sweet tooth? If you’re running low on time and need finger food that’s quick and easy, check out the frozen food section of your neighborhood grocery store for great premade, heat-and-serve options.

Fab Décor
If you can’t go to the game, have the game come to you! While football-shaped food is a common go-to on game day, you can also that fun into the overall décor. Here are a few decorating ideas to get you inspired:

  1. Make a paper tablecloth that looks like a football field.
  2. Buy brown plastic cups and use a white paint marker to draw football laces on them.
  3. Make black and white striped cup holders and insert water bottles to make them look like referees.

Fun Games
Sure, watching the game will be the highlight of the party, but why not get in on the action with your own game? Playing games before the live action starts is a great way to make memories that are just as fun as being at the stadium.

Today’s tailgate parties might be a bit different than before, but being a loyal fan isn’t. Be sure to visit your neighborhood grocery store when you’re ready to stock up for your next at-home gameday event!
