Tailgating at the Farm

Our family loves getting together on game day. One of our favorite places to cheer on our team is this little piece of land with a great water view - Our Family Farm! Nestled in our hometown of Fayetteville, Tennessee, we love the look of our team colors reflecting off the smooth water of the pond. The farm is less crowded than a busy stadium, and far enough away that the neighbors cannot hear us contesting every questionable call. We enjoy having friends and family over to celebrate game day with cornhole, cocktails, and easy appetizers.

Venue

This time we took our tailgate game to a new level with a rad retro makeover! The vintage camper we rented from The Flying Ham in Nashville was spot on for this event. With its cozy set up, comfortable seating, and vintage vibe - you cannot go wrong renting one of these for your next event. We embraced the camper’s nostalgic feel and incorporated some old school gear in our decor as well. Sipping on something with a little extra pizzazz makes close games and overtimes a little more bearable, always keep some Jackson Morgan Southern Cream nearby.

Cocktails

Jackson Morgan Southern Cream in whipped orange cream is the perfect flavor for tailgating in Tennessee. Add ice and your favorite brand of Tennessee whiskey for am easy game day cocktail. Plastic tailgating cups with sayings such as “Go Y’all” and “Tailgating with Jackson Morgan” from Party Hat Paper Company made sipping cocktails even more festive. As the weather becomes colder, our family adds Jackson Morgan in salted caramel to the line up for spiked coffee or hot chocolate. Top with marshmallows for the best treat!

Decor

Set up was a snap with our Custom Party in a Box from Party Hat Paper Company. They chose party goods, signage, table cloth, cups, straws - the works, and it all came in our choice of color scheme: orange, green, and teal. The turf table runner was the perfect touch to pull it all together. Incorporating some larger than life pieces like the gold “Touchdown” balloons creates decor with a significant impact! Our family loves capturing memories at these good-time gatherings, so we also featured a boxwood wall with an orange T from The Flower Walls Nashville. Throw in some peppy pom poms, foam fingers, megaphone, and footballs as props, and you have the perfect photo backdrop. Stay tuned for more details from this fun tailgate including cocktail recipes, menu, and more.
