A TOUCHDOWN OF A TAILGATE

It is almost time for another college football weekend!  Amy, of Amy's Party Ideas, designed this fabulous tailgate for her Alma Mater...Auburn University!  She's a girl after my own heart- that's my Alma Mater, too!

A tradition since 1896, Toomer's Lemonade is a must when you visit Auburn.  How great that Amy added it to her tailgate party...

The fruit platter just makes me smile- so simple yet absolutely perfect!

I especially like the vintage football players that Amy was able to find and incorporate into the theme!

Amy stayed with the team colors with the blue corn tortillas and cheese dip!

A little something orange to sip...complete with orange striped straws!

Whether the Auburn Tigers are winning the National Championship or just squeaking by an unranked team in the last seconds of the game, the fans always know how to get the day started right and how to get ready to cheer on the Orange and Blue!  War Eagle, Amy!  Thanks for sharing!

What an awesome tailgate. I'm hosting a new weekly meme called <a href="http://www.dianarambles.com/search/label/Thematic%20Thursday">Thematic Thursday</a>. Each week has a theme and accept any type of link-up that relates to the theme. This week's theme is Super Bowl - Football. I'd love to see you link this up!
