It’s football season!! This is the time of year that I just love! Not too hot…and tailgating with friends on Saturday’s is a great way to get everyone together and enjoy a good time! I’m always amazed at how some people decorate and pull out all the stops to get their area (10’x10′ tent) to look like home…. I’ve seen couches, dining room tables with all the silver food warmers, and big screen tv!) Our little tent hasn’t escalated to this posh tailgating yet, but I did want to make some table stuffs to make it feel more like home…and to show off our team pride!
Unveiling the tray I have been talking about!
The inside of the tray measures 8.5×16 with a 1″ frame on the outside (total measurement being approx. 10.5×18). The frame provides approximately 1″ deep area for keeping food, drinks, etc inside the tray while you are carrying it around. And football area of the tray is coated with a hard coat resin, which means it is nearly indestructible (water resistant and easily cleaned with a damp rag, safe to be used with hot pans or plates up to 120° F )! And the last feature is the handle on each end, which resemble little goal posts and are painted yellow. The handles and tray outside are covered with a clear coat varnish that will protect from chips, fading, etc.
This tray is great because I can customize it for any team (I made a Vols version complete with checkerboard endzones for my fellow Vol fans!) I just hope the orders from friends and family don’t overload me 😉
I also made a trivet to go with our table set….and for the hubby to put his wonderful grilled food on 🙂
