How to TAILGATE like a Southern Belle!

17 Aug

It’s that time of year again, belles. The air gets a little cooler (well, maybe not here), the leaves start to change and football season is upon us! Now any true Southern Belle knows that football season is the start of something special. And here at Two Belles we consider the tailgate the main event!

Now first, the outfit! You simply can’t just show up on jeans and a t-shirt on gameday. This isn’t the north, honey, and we southern gals sure do know how to dress for a Saturday at the stadium. Here’s a few options we like. Note, heels aren’t necessary but if you can rock them all day then more power to you!

Notice how once again a little leopard sneaks in. Leopard is a perfect neutral and if you play it right, it might just pass for Tiger print.

Now for the tailgate itself! Don’t be afraid to go all out! How cute is this tailgate setup from Grid Iron Belles?!? Purple and gold food in every variety or whatever your favorite team colors are!

Now for tailgating food! It’s always nice to have some men cook up a big ole pot of jambalaya but we like to get a little more creative!

Check out this great recipe here for the Junior League Tailgate Dip!!! Delicious.
