Summer Tailgates with Country Style

Summer is the time to be outside spending time with family and friends, and what better way to do that by summer tailgating? Sheplers, one of the best country stores online, knows everything about throwing a western, country style tailgate – so look no further! Follow these country style tailgate tips and get to planning.

 

First things first – grab an SUV and convert your SUV into a table. All you have to do is open the trunk, add a table cloth and put a cooler full of drinks, some snacks, and whatever food you have. This is also a great meeting place and everyone will love sitting around the trunk.

 

Next, you have to pick the perfect menu. Summer tailgating is great for sliders, hot dogs, pulled pork sandwiches, veggies – just about any sort of finger food you can think of. Your food display is just as important as your menu. It’s a good idea to splurge on quality condiments and drinks for your guests. You should always present your food and drinks in unique serving trays and mixers. You can add some fun, festive straws, plates, and napkins to enhance your set up!

 

Once you have your menu set, you absolutely cannot skimp on presentation. A little decoration goes a long way! Look for some fun placemats and table runners. It’s also important to have another table set up for any extra space you may need.

 

Lastly, Sheplers recommends setting up tailgate games! Tailgate games keep you and your guests busy throughout the entire tailgate, and they make for even more memories. Cornhole is a great tailgate game because it allows guests to mingle and play the game while also being able to hold onto a cold drink too.

 

Sheplers, one of the best western stores online, have professionals seasoned in summer tailgating. Take the tips from us and get to partying!
