Tailgating Essentials

I haven't lost my appreciation for football and tailgating! All of you Southerners understand what I'm talking about...Roll Tide!! I started off to do a quick tailgating essentials post for y'all and it turned into quite a collection! I just kept going with this post! I love searching for football things and I found so many cute "must haves." Let me know if you've seen anything I've forgotten. I did feature mostly examples of Bama items, but please check the links because most of the items come in your favorite team too.

Isn't this invitation from Whitney English cute? You can find it at The Paper Cafe for $79.00 for 25.

Do you have your Tervis Tumblers with your name and your school's logo? We have some with the Alabama logo and then some others with just our initials (a great wedding gift from a neighbor.)

I love Magnolia Lane's collegiate collection. Click here to see if they have your team! I really need some of these pieces!

I've had me eye on this stadium bundt pan from Williams Sonoma for awhile now. It was on my registry, but I guess no one realized my love for it. Perhaps I'll buy it for myself if Bama keeps winning games! =)

I was just in William Sonoma and I saw that Stadium Pan! Too cute, I stood there for several minutes debating on whether or not to buy it - decided D would not think it is as fun as I think it is so sadly it didn't come home with me.

I just love the bottle opener, every now and then the thing scares the crap out of me, if something in the drawer touches the metal it goes off. But hey Go BUCKEY!

Go Dawgs!!! I love all of the stuff you put on the blog. I also love my UGA platter, pitcher, and large serving bowl and use it for all the GA games. I especially love this great cooler that we take to all the UGA games. Check out these inexpensive coolers at
Thanks again for a great blog!

SO CUTE! I love Big 12 football, but for some ridiculous reason, Baylor is so stingy about releasing their trademarks (interlocking BU, bear, etc) to the masses! I'm emailing VV to see if we can get that fixed :) SUCH a pain though, because I want to be able to buy super cute things like these for my alma mater!

Belle-ah said...

Love those cookie cutters and Swoozies is just the best for fun things...luckily we have a Swoozies in real life not too far away!

I'm a southern girl from Mobile, AL. who currently lives in New York City and I love this post!

I'm planning a big birthday celebration with a "Football theme" because Alabama is playing Auburn on my B-DAY - - - 11/24!!!

Love the pan from Williams-Sonoma. I looked at it last year and debated and didn't get it. Each time hubby and I go in I want it, but end up not getting it. I ended up with the train bundt pan. the one with all the different train cars. That went over so well with my niece and nephews. We have made brownies and cornbread and meatloaf patties in it.

Love so many of those products. Love em.

heather said...

That Williams-Sonoma cake pan is the cutest thing ever! I thought I wanted to add either the rose or the castle to my own registry, but now I have to think the whole thing. It's especially exciting for a Kentucky fan like myself-- we have an actual team this year! :)

C-A-T-S, Cats, Cats, Cats!

Southern Cupcake said...

Love, Love, Love the football post! What great finds. Thank you!

Whatever Dee-Dee wants said...
