HBCU Tailgate at Home: Bar Cart Inspiration with Heritage

HBCU Tailgate at Home: Bar Cart Inspiration with Heritage

How do you add HBCU pride into your home? Do you share images of your favorite high-stepping band in your living room decor or do you add the colors of your favorite Tiger Den in different spots of your home? Before decorating or adding HBCU inspiration into your home, you should understand the reason for the season in which you are decorating for. A season that we are all waiting for is homecoming and tailgating.

For this season, you can visualize your home being a playing field for HBCU alums, family, and friends who always enjoy experiencing homecoming with you. From your maroon and orange pillows in your entertainment room to the blue and white nspired sitting room, HBCU color schemes are always popular and should be a go-to decision when hosting in your home. Specifically, during the tailgating season, utilizing all your hosting items and HBCU artifacts will make your decorating and hosting process simple. 

Tailgating at home can already be a stressful yet fun way to recreate your HBCU experience, but in order to make your tailgate a little smoother having the proper items is necessary. Pull out your cheese boards, three-tier servers, drink dispensers, and of course our favorite and tailgate must-have: bar carts. Bar carts can be used for much more than just the norm alcoholic or nonalcoholic beverages. Need extra space or more room for food and/or HBCU pieces? If you do, a bar cart can assist you with that as well.

Unsure of where to start with organizing a bar car for this tailgate season? Here are a few tips you can incorporate this homecoming season!

Tips on Ways to Organize A Bar Cart while Tailgating at Home 

  1. Disorganized Can Be Organized 

A little dysfunctional decor can be seen as organization when scaled the right way. Place large and small items on the same bar cart leve. Organize these items in a way where guests have to look twice to appreciate your stylish ways. Remember that organized clutter is an actual decor style.

  1.  Add Your Personal Favs 

We all have standard HBCU items that we keep on display in our home. Whether it’s an antique HBCU glass, a book written by an alum, or a hand painted item with your HBCU colors; find a way to incorporate it into the bar cart design. Use these items subtly to tie in the HBCU pride you always exude. Place these items on either level of the bar cart to show your purpose for bringing everyone together.

  1. Let the Drinks Flow

A bar cart initially was designed to hold drinks and adult beverages and you can still style it as such. Place some of the most popular drink items or frequently requested items on your bar cart and watch as the guests help themselves. Being prepared with a plethora of beverages implies that there is less work that you will have to do to entertain and more fun you can have at your HBCU tailgating event. 

Tailgating at home doesn’t have to be a hard act to do. Instead of overplanning for tailgating at home, use the items you already have and style them according to your Black Southern Belle decor style.
