Just in time for the big game this weekend, and to wrap up our week of tailgating (HERE & HERE) Danielle and I are saving the best for last…the cocktails.  I guarantee there has not been a tailgate with cocktails as good as these!  The tangerine old fashioned…well lets just say that’s a new staple in my household.  And how major is our pumpkin icebucket.  Just carve a pumpkin, fill with ice, and voila.  Easy breezy.

Make sure to check out Danielle’s blog for additional pictures and an amazing playlist plus don’t forget to share pics this weekend of your tailgate tagging both @waitingonmartha and @danielledrollins for a chance to win a TableVogue Team Tablecloth (details HERE).  TGIF Loves and goooooooo….well wouldn’t you like to know?! truly, MKR.
