HBCU Entertaining at Home: Bayou Classic Front Porch Party

CLP9637 HBCU Entertaining at Home: Bayou Classic Front Porch Party
***Disclaimer: This post was sponsored by Cracker Barrel. All opinions are my own ***

Tailgating season is coming to an end but the fun is not over. One of the largest events during the HBCU football season is the Bayou Classic held in New Orleans, Louisiana. If you can’t make it to the Bayou Classic why not bring the classic to you with a Bayou Inspired front porch party.

Decorated Porch Swing: Create a porch swing for your guests to enjoy. Incorporate school colors or pick you favorite fall theme for a relaxing lounge area to enjoy the game with your fellow HBCU alum and enjoy the Bayou Classic.

Bayou Classic is a tradition in the Gulf Coast south and amongst the HBCU community. Cracker Barrel is a proud sponsor of the Bayou Classic.

Front Porch Biscuit Bar: Nothing like a biscuit bar for any southern party. Biscuits are the star but feel free to add some of your favorite breads such as cornbread muffins and waffles. All of these breads are available on Cracker Barrel Catering and pair well with the jellies and jams available in the Cracker Barrel Country Store.

Bayou Inspired Sides Station: Want to impress your guests and really highlight the culture of Bayou Classic? Create a bayou inspired sides station full of your favorite coastal foods like catfish, hush puppies, and coleslaw which are available through Cracker Barrel catering. These coastal southern staples are always a crowd-pleaser and easy to carry while you mix and mingle.

HBCU Inspired Game Table: In addition to the food, the star of the show is the actual Bayou Classic Game. Be sure to make it easy for your guests to enjoy food and football at your party. You can do this by creating a game table for guests to enjoy watching the game on TV or laptops with the live stream of the game already preset for them to watch.

HBCU – Bayou Inspired Stationery:  No party is complete without great stationery. From menu cards, place cards and mini prints, add bayou inspired stationery for a custom look your guests will be sure to share on social media.
