We all know that tailgating can become expensive really quickly (check out my post with general tips for how to tailgate on a budget), but we still want it to be a fun and enjoyable experience for our friends and families.

We want our tailgating spots to be festive and happy and fun with people playing games and getting energized for the game. Lots of times that can mean buying expensive games or brightening up the space with boutique decorations that cost a pretty penny. Those things are certainly not bad, but you can get creative to create the same ambiance for a lot less money.
