Sorry I've been MIA for the last week, I must have misplaced my blogging manners! But now I'm back and have some exciting tailgate- enhancing decorating ideas.
Football season is upon us and with that comes 2 of my favorite things: Fall weather and tailgating! Tailgating is my excuse to be a perpetual hostess- to coordinate a gathering of close friends, make great food and dress up in my favorite school colors: blue & white. Of course, being in the decorating field I think every good color scheme needs some pattern which is why I LOVE the UK Plaid products. The Plaid brings a whole new dimension to the beautiful, but solid blue, white & occasionally black color scheme of our tailgate decor. Check out some of my faves:
The tablecloths compliment your basic blue tailgate tent & chairs. Your grill- master can don some snazzy gear to get in to the festivities, as well.
the cotton scarf. I am so into wearing the long scarves right
now and this piece makes me feel like I can wear some official gear to the games beyond my trusty UK tees.
Here's my pup modeling it for you.
The coozie is another super-cute addition this year that I will not be caught without at my tailgate party.

All of the Plaid products (there's a whole array I didn't even mention) can be purchased from various retailers in Lexington as well as some stores out in the state. It's a project especially near to my heart, as the students from the Merchandising, Apparel & Textiles department (my major) designed the Plaid. The students also design the products that are produced each year. I think it's a super-exciting opportunity for these students and I'm jealous that I'm still not in school to participate!
Some other fun products that I have recently been painting more and more of are UK themed glasses:
Boy or girl, you can have one for your signature drink this football season.
So when you get all of your new tailgate-enhancing products, be sure to snap some pics and send them my way- I'd love to see what you've done! Happy tailgate decorating!
