We’re so excited to partner with Lauren Crawford (@lauren_loves_gifting) to share how she styled the Pep Rally Collection in honor of the return of football season. Here’s what she shared about styling an elevated table for your next football viewing party.
September is the start of football season and whether you root for an NFL team or a collegiate team, it’s a sport that gets us to gather together and cheer on our team. I love hosting relaxed football viewing parties for friends and family. Eating outside and watching on a projector allows our kids to run around in the safety of our backyard while the adults can hang out and pay attention to the score! Hester & Cook papers allow easy setup and clean up which I need after a long day of cheering!
MUST-HAVES FOR YOUR VIEWING PARTY
In addition to the tabletop papers from Hester & Cook’s Pep Rally Collection, I mixed my bamboo melamine plates and bamboo flatware from Pottery Barn. I picked up the red plaid plastic cups from HomeGoods.
TIP: BE INTENTIONAL
I like to create tablescapes that require time, thought and a theme as well as tables that would be simple to throw together. I believe setting a beautiful table doesn’t need to be complicated. It’s about gathering with the ones you love. I also like to mix new and old pieces and can never resist a trip to the antique store or flea market. You never know what treasures you might find!
So no matter what team you're cheering for, remember that there is always a moment to celebrate and create beauty on your table. Be sure to check out the beautiful tables Lauren creates on her page @lauren_loves_gifting.
