HBCU Tailgate Inspiration – Lowcountry Style

HBCU Tailgate Inspiration – Lowcountry Style

,HBCU Tailgate season is right around the corner.  As a proud Howard University alum, I can’t wait and am already having dreams about tailgate fun but unfortunately, with a newborn, I won’t be leaving for DC any time soon. If you are like me and a new parent, busy at a new job or saving for a home and can’t make it back to your homecoming to tailgate, don’t let that stop your fun. We have just the inspiration you need to host an HBCU tailgate party at home.

HBCU Tailgate Inspiration – Lowcountry Style

Add Beautiful Florals:

A floral arrangement doesn’t have to be over the top and for a tailgate party, it shouldn’t be. For a simple yet, bold arrangement, pick an old trophy case or tin can and add greenery from your backyard. Add a fun black and white HBCU inspired print for a fun contrast to the green floral arrangment.

Oysters Are a Must

There is nothing more Lowcountry than fresh oysters and they also make a great tailgate meal option. Both easy and simple, an oyster bar is a great way to entertain and host your favorite HBCU alum. Be sure to display them on a unique piece with bold rustic style.

Carbs are Essential to Tailgating

You must have some carbs when you are tailgating. They are essential for your survival. After hours of great cocktails and beers, pair it with your favorite carb, preferably in snack form. If you are looking for a stylish way to display your bread, add your favorite linen, such as this heirloom set from Southern Kitchen.

Condiments Make the Meal:

Who says a tailgating meal has to be simple? You can spice up any dish or appetizer with great condiments.. But why stop there? Displaying them in a fun way is half the fun. We love using an outdoor entertaining platter as an option to display your condiments in a stylish way and they are perfect for outdoor entertaining at a tailgate.

Drinks Should Be Ready

Be sure to have your drinks ready for your guests. Whether it is a Lowcountry inspired signature drink or a Lowcountry brewed beer, they should be ready for the party to start! If you are looking for a sturdy and practical set of glassware, the Sorrento Double Walled Rocks Glass Set is a great option. 

What is the Lowcountry Without Seafood?

If you are trying to host a true Lowcountry tailgate, you must have seafood on the menu and the more the better. From shrimp to crab and everything in between seafood is the perfect casual dining experience for an at home tailgating party. If you are tailgating at home, add some fun to the menu with bold dishware. We adore the classic Crow Canyon Home Enamel Dinner Plate 10-inch Blue Splatter along with the Crow Canyon Home 8-Inch Salad Plate with Black Rim. Pair it with your favorite HBCU coffee table book and turn on the game for an afternoon, you and your guests won’t forget.
