Trunk or Treat Tailgate

This Trunk or Treat Tailgate is a  great way to gather….while not gathering together.

Think of this brand of trick or treating is tailgating for DIYers. And when the party’s over, the decor can become part of your front yard or patio for the fall season.  This idea is simple so let’s get started.

Coordinate with the neighbors and family friends

Pick a central location.  Like a parking lot so the groups can safely socially distance or stay on the block in your own driveways for some “at home” ease and a little drive-by admiration by curious on-lookers.

Pop your trunk

Pick a theme, and decorate!  You’re going to deck out your car in a prize winning costume. Here’s a tip, think of it as tablescaping for a party or decorating for a hollywood-worthy set!  And for my tailgaters out there, you know what to do!

Do a fall design idea with fresh pumpkins, bales hay, fall themeatic colors, add a scarecrow or two with some corn stalks and serve apple cider…or get spooky with some spiders, ghouls, goblins, and ghosts!  Or try a fantasty look from your favorite movie or book….

Extras touches

You can add games and food to your trunk display…. Let’s just day we’re creating a new-kind-of “special event” for a special kind of year.

The creative ideas for your trunk are endless, so get excited!  Because getting in the spirit is easy with a little imagination and some inspiration!

Happy fall ya’ll.
