The Ultimate Tailgate

It is so hard to believe that football season is in full swing.

 The opening game of the season in the SEC between Ole Miss and Vanderbilt was last Thursday night

and some friends invited us over to watch the game.

Fall mums in the dining room announce the season…

dining room, mums, tailgate

dining room, mums, tailgate

festive flowers throughout…

lemons, limes, cholancho


getting ready for the game with the preview…

no tailgate is complete without snacks…

veggie tray

onion dip

and beverages…

ice cold beer


napkins representing both teams (the ones for the other team are just buried underneath!)

because there were some folks here rooting for the other team …

there is plenty of room for pacing if you get nervous during the game…


lots of visiting on the veranda…

the sideline is ready for game day viewing…


Fortunately the Ole Miss Rebels came through and beat Vanderbilt

so we are enjoying the week with an SEC record of 1-0.

Today I am ordering food and flowers for the tent in The Grove

(actually our tent is in The Circle)

getting ready for the first home game in Oxford on Saturday.
