Celebrating football season is one of the reasons we love fall in the South, and we can't think of a better way than this beautiful front-porch tailgate party styled by South Carolina's Black Southern Belle. If you can't make it to the stadium to cheer on your favorite team, hosting a gathering for your family and friends at home is the next-best (or better, if you like to see the game in HD!) thing. This charming set-up is the perfect environment for enjoying a few hand-held appetizers, sipping on a signature Game-Day cocktail, and cheering on your boys from the comfort of your own porch.

This cozy front porch is welcoming with cushioned wicker chairs, soft blankets, and a pop of metallics. This rug, patterned with fall shades like navy, mustard yellow, and deep orange, pulls together the color scheme for the party.

Dark wooden bowls paired with a lighter stacked wooden table bring warm rustic appeal to the porch. A modern gold tray, with metallic-rimmed glasses, plays sidekick to a beautiful, fresh bouquet of flowers.

Small details, like these oh-so-adorable cocktail napkins embossed with the phrase Give Thanks, give an extra-special touch to your fall tailgating table.

WATCH: Tailgate-Ready Pork Tenderloin Sliders

Just because you're not outside the bleachers doesn't mean that you can't enjoy some good, old-fashioned tailgating grub with friends. This spread includes the always beloved sliders and chips, but in a presentation that still feels elegant. Rethink your vintage ice buckets and pails – they can be repurposed with a cloth napkin as an upscale serving vessel.
