Looking to kick up your creative game at the next tailgate party? Good news: you’re in the right place!
From boatloads of game day inspired printables to tips for setting up a make-your-own hot dog buffet that looks as good as it tastes, this post is packed with lots of FREE goodies and easy-to-recreate ideas for both sports fans and pet parents alike. Why pet parents, you ask? Well… we all know that it’s way more fun to tailgate with friends, so of course that includes your BEST friends of the 4-legged variety too, right?! I know that Layla definitely thinks so:
As a longtime pet parent myself, and a big animal lover in general, I was thrilled to collaborate with Petco – whose name also happens to grace our awesome downtown ballpark here in San Diego – on this Playful and Pet-Friendly TAILgate Party Theme. Whether you utilize just 1 or 2 quick ideas from this post or recreate something similar from start to finish, I hope it’s helpful in making your next game day get-together feel like even more of a WIN. ;)
And with 4th of July celebrations just around the corner, you might find the red, white, and blue color palette of the sporty style printables especially handy right now too!
