It’s always a good idea to set aside several items that can be used each weekend for game day soirees. Neutral elements will always look the best & give you an opportunity to tuck in swags of team colors for a pretty finish. A sharp cooler, galvanized steel, white acrylic trays, slate boards, a few wooden crates plus a set or two of Mason jars will set the tone flawlessly. Once you’re ready to put it all together, layer the pieces in a variety of heights for interest. Have a set spot to organize plates, napkins & flatware. Create a separate beverage location to keep bottlenecking at bay. Tuck in a few pressed linens to elevate the table & you’ll have the most polished tent around.
