Show your Team Spirit this Tailgating Season

Tailgating season may look a little different this year, but that doesn’t mean it has to be less fun. Socially distanced gatherings and family time at home rooting for your favorite team requires enough seating to accommodate everyone at a distance. Plus, incorporating accents in your favorite team’s colors keeps game day spirits high.

Add team spirit easily with blankets, pillows, or rugs in your team's colors.

Making Space

Make sure you have plenty of space for everyone to spread out. We love this large sectional from Wayfair that accommodates your entire family . Plus, when someone spills the barbeque sauce, you can take comfort knowing that Sunbrella fabric is easy to clean and extra durable.

You can also add in fun accents in your team’s colors, like these table linens from Plum Ridge, or this table runner from Ballard Designs. They’ll add perfect pops of game day spirit while easily standing up to party fouls.

Get Outside

Whether you have an outdoor speaker set up for the game or just pop outside for pregame festivities, it’s the perfect time of year for outdoor activities. Tailgate with the family around an umbrella in your team’s color, like this one from Wayfair. When not standing, make sure you have plenty of room to get cozy; bonus points if you position a setup like this one from Target near a firepit!

Making small changes, like updating your outdoor cushions, can transition your space for fall and game time. We also love the idea of making durable cornhole bags with our weather-resistant fabric. Game on!
