Summer Tailgates with Country Style

Summer is the time to be outside spending time with family and friends, and what better way to do that by summer tailgating? Sheplers, one of the best country stores online, knows everything about throwing a western, country style tailgate – so look no further! Follow these country style tailgate tips and get to planning.

 

First things first – grab an SUV and convert your SUV into a table. All you have to do is open the trunk, add a table cloth and put a cooler full of drinks, some snacks, and whatever food you have. This is also a great meeting place and everyone will love sitting around the trunk.

 

Next, you have to pick the perfect menu. Summer tailgating is great for sliders, hot dogs, pulled pork sandwiches, veggies – just about any sort of finger food you can think of. Your food display is just as important as your menu. It’s a good idea to splurge on quality condiments and drinks for your guests. You should always present your food and drinks in unique serving trays and mixers. You can add some fun, festive straws, plates, and napkins to enhance your set up!

 

Once you have your menu set, you absolutely cannot skimp on presentation. A little decoration goes a long way! Look for some fun placemats and table runners. It’s also important to have another table set up for any extra space you may need.

 

Lastly, Sheplers recommends setting up tailgate games! Tailgate games keep you and your guests busy throughout the entire tailgate, and they make for even more memories. Cornhole is a great tailgate game because it allows guests to mingle and play the game while also being able to hold onto a cold drink too.

 

Sheplers, one of the best western stores online, have professionals seasoned in summer tailgating. Take the tips from us and get to partying!

Koozies are a nice little grab gift that everyone can keep, and customized wedding day koozies are a great little party favor. You can incorporate camo with the right personalized wedding koozie to commemorate your special day.

 

The Bride’s Shoes or the Groom’s Socks – For the couple that wants a little bit of camo to be seen in their ensemble but doesn’t want to go all out with camo from head to toe, a pair of hunter green heels for the bride and camo socks for the groom to match provide a subtle pop.

 

Sheplers, one stop shop for all things in men’s western wear, agrees that you can also incorporate camouflage into your wedding with napkins, the guest book, and even the pillow for the ring bearer or the flowers that the flower girl will be throwing out of her basket.

Decorate your party before it’s even started with western-themed invitations! Invitations provide a preview for your party theme. Include all important details, especially if you wish for your guests to wear western style clothes as part of the party!

 

What more could you wish for from a summer BBQ than grilled corn on the cob? Big Sky Carvers has created novelty corn holders that look like shotgun shells! If shotgun shell corn holders don’t say spicy western BBQ, we don’t know what does!

 

No summer BBQ party is complete without a convenient bottle opener. No more asking everyone at the party if they have a bottle opener handy! Mount this horseshoe design cast iron bottle opener in an appropriate place so the drinkers at the party can open their bottles with ease.

 

If you want to spice things up at your BBQ literally, there’s nothing more country western feel than a salt and pepper shaker set in a filigree and saddle stitch holder with a painted cow skull on it. Aside from all the lovely western décor on the tables at your party, this simple piece is warm and inviting. Everyone gathered around the table will ask, pass the salt, please?
