 Now, you want to see something incredible? Fall also means football, football, football. I live in a college town and each week before the game, thousands of people gather to tailgate…are you familiar with tailgating? I mainly think of lawn chairs, barbecue pits, tents and school colors. Some tailgaters even have signs printed with their names and graduation years. Some convert old school buses into tailgating vehicles. But, I have never seen the amount of “class” incorporated into tailgating that the people of Ole Miss display…just look at this!! Au Courant takes tailgating to a brand new level of sophistication…

  1. Wow. I could totally get behind that sort of tailgating! Maybe you should start a trend.

  2. OMG LOVE it.. it’s fall in Michigan time for leaves falling, comfort foods, and COLD nights..

    ahhh, this post made me so happy! I love all things pumpkin.

  4. I love spring, but these lovely arrangements make me like fall a whole lot too! Especially like the Art with Nature bouquet with the Cinderella type pumpkin. Today is one our first coll fall days. Thanks for inspiring me once again!
