Just before heading out, pack your favorite chili recipe into lidded mason jars, use twine to tie a disposible spoon onto each, then pack the jars inside a thermal tote to keep them warm. When you arrive at the stadium, serve the chili to your guests on a tiered tray.
As the party comes to a close and everyone prepares to go root on the home team, give your guests a tailgate survival kit packed with cold soda, sunscreen, trail mix, napkins and moist towelettes. The kit will also come in handy when the game is over and your squad heads back to the truck for a post-game celebration.
Serve your sweet and savory snacks in a rustic bucket packed with brown paper bags filled with favorites like popcorn, pretzels and chocolate candies. When the party heads into the stadium, guests can each grab a brown bag of their favorite snack to enjoy while watching the game.
