10 Great Tips for Making Your Next Tailgate a Winner:
- Keep things organized by using cardboard six-pack containers to hold condiments and spices – this will also make it easy to pass around.
- Bring pre-packed set of drawers to keep everything organized and easy to access.
- Use pop-up folding laundry hampers lined with large trash bags for garbage.
- Use Toolbox for organizing grill tools
- Turn cupcake wrappers upside down over drinks with a straw to keep them bug and debris-free.
- Cook as much as you can before arriving and convert your cooler into a warming oven with bricks, foil, and wet towels.
- Make sure guests can find you by floating a large unique helium balloon. Send out a group text to party-goers once you know your location and what to look for.
- Greet guests with their favorite beverages or create a new one by introducing them to a new cocktail. Pre-make them in mason jars with lids and pack them in an iced cooler. Here are a few suggestions:
- Label coolers so guests can easily find drinks and help themselves.
- Pack soapy wet washcloths in Ziploc bags for easy clean up.
