Affordable Accessories

Such as this sturdy plastic ware from Target. Count on 45 pieces for $2.99. Very Crimson Tide. For an extra nod to the team, wrap butcher's twine around each set and tie with a simple knot so that fans can grab-and-go and get to enjoying that generous tailgate spread. Look for butchers twine at Williams-Sonoma or check the automotive section of the grocery store for simple white string. The white cups can be found at Target too.

I stumbled upon a fun little website, for the pint baskets (company name is simply garnish). Line them with parchment paper and fill with either snack mix or a wrap sandwich and some chips. The bonus is that you'll be able to reuse them all season long and into the next. Expect each piece to set you back a half dollar.

As for the natural food baskets... LOVE THEM... also from garnish and retail for 50 cents each. They're the perfect size and shape for a hot dog and potato salad or a shrimp roll and slaw. There again, I would line them with some parchment paper so you can plan to use them again. Truly the best part of all is that they will be delivered straight to your door... Nice.

See you at the game.
