4 Tips to Tackle Your Tailgate
Fall is here, and Arkansas football is in full force. This month, the UAPB Golden Lions and Arkansas Razorbacks will go head-to-head at War Memorial Stadium, bringing tailgates and outdoor parties to Little Rock. And that’s something even non-sports fans can celebrate.
Whether you’re planning to camp out at the stadium or host a watch party at home, presentation is everything. Tipton & Hurst is sharing four tips to help you score big with your guests — without blowing your budget.
- Go for a BOGO blitz: In addition to pumpkins and gourds, fall means the return of abundant and affordable florals like Gerbera daisies and black-eyed Susans. Show your school spirit with colorful “Happy Hour Flowers” that you can pick up all day on Wednesday and repurpose in arrangements for weeks after the game.
- Prevent party fouls: Forget the fancy serving pieces. Equip your guests and your table with dishwasher-safe and fumble-proof pieces, such as Juliska’s melamine wine glasses or Golden Rabbit’s enamelware, which comes in black, red, white and other team colors.
- Make it a sweep: Clean up after the game? That’s a hard pass. Pair Caspari’s stylish disposable plates, napkins and cups with paper table runners or placements from brands like Hester & Cook for a festive look without the fuss.
- Cover the spread: Are you a football fan, or are you just here for the food? Fill up your table (and your stomach) with Arkansas-made dips and snacks like What’s Cookin, My Brother’s Salsa or J&M cheese straws that are perfect to munch on during nail-biting plays.
