Tailgate Birthday Party + Top Tailgating Recipes

I’m trying to plan Hayden’s birthday party for this year and thought it would be a great time to finally blog her tailgate birthday from two years ago! Her birthday is in early November and in the height of football season. Luckily she has grown up obsessed with all things Clemson and routinely asks for a Tiger birthday party. This year she is branching out & wants Tigers AND Cheetahs but as you can see, we have a common theme. For this particular tailgate party I made one trip to Target and put as many orange snacks, drinks and treats that I could find in the cart. I kept things super simple and only decorated with the food, some pom-poms and a beautiful cake from Baked & Frosted, and all things Clemson. I also have rounded up a few of my favorite tailgating recipes for you at the bottom of this post!

    Hey Cristin! Thanks so much for including the pimento cheese sausage balls in your roundup. They are definitely my favorite tailgate snack. Your tailgate party spread looks amazing – especially that cake!
