Tailgate Time!

September 25, 2014

TAILGATE TIME!
Are you ready for some football?
Tailgating is one of my favorite activities because it brings together family, friends, sports and of course, drinks and food!
Football season means tailgate parties! Get all of your gear ready and packed so you can hit the parking lot in style with all the essentials.
SET-UP:
Plan to arrive at least four hours before the game starts. Then eat two hours before the game so you have plenty of time to set up and clean up.
Float a big helium balloon on a long string from your car or awning. This way, your friends will be able to find you easily in a parking lot filled with similar setups!
You’ll need a portable grill for the grub, a cooler for the drinks, a sound system for a TV so you don’t miss any pre-game action, tables and foldable chairs to plop down in! Be sure to check out our portable grills, our football cooler and the Ultimate Tailgating Chair!

Don’t forget to bring a football to throw around and tailgate games! The bean bag throw game, also known as cornhole, is perfect for allowing guests to play a game and hold a cold drink too. Check out our Football Bean Bag Game here.

FOOD AND DRINK TIPS:
• Pre-make burger patties ahead of the game and place them between sheets of wax paper.
• Stop by your local bakery for team-themed cookies or cupcakes.
• Label your coolers so guests can find drinks easily.
• Freeze water bottles to use in place of ice in coolers so you have cold water to drink after they melt.
• Save one of those cardboard six pack holders and fill it with the mustard, ketchup, your favorite hot sauces and other condiment bottles. This looks really cool on the table!
• Pack portable jello shots in your team colors. (Don't drink and drive, make sure you have that designated driver!)

Pack jumper cables in case you drain the battery while listening to tunes, pre-game or accidentally leaving the lights on.
Fall, football, friends and food - I can't imagine a better way to spend a day!

She Sheds

March 14, 2018

It’s never too early to begin planning this year’s home projects. But wouldn’t it be great if you had your very own space to do it in? While taking over your guest room may be tempting, the functionality of this space is limiting for those of us who may want something that is appropriate for gardening or lots of craft supplies. That’s exactly why you need a She Shed!
