Down… Set… Hike! Football season is here!

September means fall, football, and better weather. However, for many people in the south, football is the most important one of those three things I just listed. I know my family is obsessed with football season. To be fair, it is a great way to build community, have fun, and create traditions. Though I may not be the world’s biggest football fan, I definitely get the appeal, and of course, I enjoy going to a game every now and then.

Well, actually, let me rephrase that. I love being around the culture that surrounds college football season in America. I thoroughly enjoy the environment that builds up around game days—like tailgating for example.

That being said, let me give you a list of my top 5 football season essentials to make the best tailgate ever. As always, you can find all of these at Party Place in store or online.

All of these products will fit any tailgate for any team you support, even if it is a rival of my favorite team (spoiler alert: As an alumna of the University of Oklahoma, I have to tell you the Sooners are my favorite).

  1. Football Flag Picks

Starting off strong with these cute little guys! Put them in cupcakes, a full cake, sliders, and anything else your heart desires.

You’ll see me drinking a mimosa out of one of these at morning games guaranteed.

Put this up around your tailgating tables, tents, and chairs. I love a good pennant flag, and this does not disappoint.

Take your tailgate setup to the next level with this incredible drink cooler.

Get ready to watch the game with the cutest snack boxes around.

Football Season = Party Time

It is September, so that means that college football season is right around the corner! For all you football fans, this is the blog post for you. Today we are going to talk about how to throw a great football party! I am not the biggest football aficionado, but I know enough to get by. So, keep in mind when reading this I might fumble with some football jargon a bit.

Did you see what I did there? Alright, alright, bad dad jokes aside, let’s throw a football party!

Whether or not you have season tickets or like watching the games at home, you can make this party happen anywhere! All you need is some friendly competition, burgers, and good vibes.

I think the most integral part of ANY college football party or tailgate is some cornhole! I grew up playing cornhole before almost every OU football game just because that was how we got in the mood to watch the heat go down during a football game.

So, step one to a great football party: play cornhole!

You can buy cornhole boards, from Amazon, Target, Walmart, and pretty much any other major retailer.

The next thing you need is to get some football inspired plates, napkins, and other eatery! Party Place is your one-stop shop for all things football, and trust me, you don’t want to miss these products. Here is a direct link to all football supplies.

My personal favorite is this football field cup.

Next for food, keep it simple with some little burger sliders! I think any type of grab-and-go food is a good way to be. It is an easy clean up and usually good for snack-type situation like this!

I also am team burger sliders because then you can use these cute little flags!

Seriously, so cute. Add a couple of coolers filled with soda, beer, and water (hydration!), and let the good times roll!
