That cooling temperature, that crisping in the night air means only one thing to a lot of Atlanta residents, it’s football time. With the Ramblin’ Wreck a preseason Top 25 pick and the Falcons looking to tear it up in NFC South, football fanatics are getting ready for the Saturday and Sunday pre-game festivities. With the weather still hot and somewhat unpredictable regarding rain, perhaps more than anything else your tailgating event needs a tent. Tents will protect your gourmet food and guests alike.
Think of tailgating as a dinner party away from home. Now that you’ve got the concept in your mind, you’ll realize how much you’ll need to replicate the home dining experience. You’ll need plenty of surface space for serving, items to serve food in, items to keep ingredients and beverages cold (or hot), dinnerware of all kinds and the tools that are indispensable in a kitchen.
These concepts won’t only apply to tailgating. Outdoor dinner parties of any kind, whether it’s a wedding reception or charitable event will require extensive planning and tons of supplies. Here are a few ideas you may not have considered when planning your event:
- Theme – Themes for specific events like a tailgating or wedding party should be obvious. However, there’s still room for creativity within those parties. You can have a retro-themed tailgating party, highlighting your team’s glorious past, or you may have already decided a theme for your wedding, like one based on your favorite TV show. You’ll need decorations for these ideas.
- Games – You are likely to have families, or you have a big brood yourself. Make sure the kids stay busy; bored kids lead to bothered adults. Keep everyone distracted while waiting for you barbecue masterpiece to finish on the grill with simple, portable games.
- Mitigate the Weather – It might be too hot or too cool outside; however, it doesn’t have to be under your tent with the proper equipment. Your guests will thank you. Watch out for the party crashers who will be drawn to the comfortable atmosphere under your tent.
