Tailgate Time

The excitement in Auburn this week is almost palpable.  For the past few months most have wondered what football would look like this fall or if there would be football at all.  Thank goodness the SEC made sure that our football would go on.  That said, as a resident of Auburn I'm relieved that they are limiting of seating inside Jordan Hare stadium so maybe there won't be an enormous flux of folks in our little town.  In addition to limited seating, they've said there will be no tailgating with tables, tents and such...all due to the corona virus.   Since there will be no tailgating I've opted to created our own version right here at home!

Anytime before I have any sort of a gathering with food I plan out what I'm going to have and what dishes I will use. Also I'll determine which dish/bowl/platter will get which food.  This pretty much tells ya'll I'm not a fly by the seat of my pants kinda gal!
Most of these platters and serving trays I've had for many years.  You'll notice I've kept buckets we get popcorn in from the stadium, they hold chips great!
The orange and blue megaphones were a cute find at online craft store.  I simply google orange and blue megaphone and up they popped!  Found a couple other cute pieces there as well!
Those tallish blue and gold canisters are also new, those are from Montgomery Antiques.  As soon as I saw them I knew they would hold our cutlery for tailgates!  You might not know what the W and the E are for....as Auburn fans we say War Eagle!  
I always save shakers form all the games and they came in pretty handy under this vegetable tray!
I've debated food for the tailgate.  I'll pick up bbq from Country's Barbeque along with their baked beans cause ya'll they are the best EVER! You have to have wings if there is a football game so I'll grab those at Publix!   I'll have chips, crackers, vegetables and a dip or 2 of some sort.  
Gosh typing that out made me hungry and tired!  
Ya'll have a great weekend

  1. War Eagle! I'm excited our Tigers are playing again! I also keep all my shakers, and I've amassed quite a few. Living in Houston, we don't get back to Auburn for games as often as we like. Love your divided tray and War Eagle rectangular platter!
