Fall Football with Beatriz Ball


Football season is HEREEEEE!!!! Fall is wonderful for many, many reasons– one being college football. It was interesting when we moved from the south to NYC because northerns {or at least New Yorkers} do not understand the love and spirit behind COLLEGE football. But man the south sticks together in the city, especially on Saturdays in the fall. Each SEC team has a bar that their fans completely take over for the games. The Ainsworth {the Alabama bar} is so packed that they have had to expand to 2 or 3 locations for people to watch the games each weekend. They even serve YellowHammers {the signature drink on a gameday in Tuscaloosa}!! ROLL TIDE!!

We love going and getting to see college friends & catch up while singing Sweet Home Alabama, but I love having people over to our apartment to watch them games too! There is something so fun to me about preparing the table, cooking and spending time with friends {old & new} in our home. Even though we live in NYC where space is limited, I still prefer sharing a gameday spread with our friends around our table and TV!

I’m sure by now you know I love to celebrate even the smallest things– well game day is no different!! Why not bring out the silver trays and make it fun & special?! This season I’m teaming up with Beatriz Ball to share how I put together my game day spread. I literally SWOON over their beautiful pieces, especially their pearl collections {insert heart-eyed emoji}. They are timeless pieces that you can use for any occasion. From a wedding shower, to game day, and you can even use them to dress up your cookouts {like I did here!}. Aren’t they GORGEOUS?!!

-a veggie board with hummus. I like to have an assortment of vegetables to not only give your guests a healthy option, but to make the table colorful!!

  • My homemade salsa with some tortilla chips.
  • Mexican inspired light chicken salad roll-ups! {I threw this together and it turned out tasty! Let me know if you want to recipe}
  • My homemade chickpea brownies {with pecans} that are so tasty you don’t even realized they are healthier 🙂
  • I also included an ice bucket for people’s beverage of choice. And don’t forget a bottle of champs to celebrate a victory!! {disclaimer: we don’t typically celebrate with champagne when we get the W, but I had a bottle in the fridge so I thought, “why not”}.
  • You could make a communal drink, like a spiked punch or YellowHammers, for everyone to enjoy! We have done this before and its always a hit!

Another great way to host gameday is to have everyone bring a dish– less work and stress on your part and you can have your favorite serve ware {like beatriz ball} out and ready to use when the food arrives. Win win!
