Gridiron Belles

You might be a Southern Lady love football and have been known to tailgate on Gameday! Whether you watch the football games at home with family and friends or hit the road and enjoy the tailgate experience, there's a book for you! It's "Gridiron Belles"...a guide to Saturdays in Dixie, by Christie Leigh Mueller. This book is a guide for every Southern belle with all the must-knows for becoming a Gridiron Belle--fashion, etiquette, football 101, and Gameday foods.

Author Christie Leigh Mueller {in the middle} with designer Annabelle Laroque {on the right} at Annabelle's shop in Columbia, South Carolina...for a Gridiron Belle book signing. LOVE the Laroque dresses the girls are wearing!

You can visit the author's site here and purchase the book for $24.99.

Wondering what to wear on Gameday? Visit A Southern Belles Guide and check out the polyvores she created for Gameday HERE.

Or visit Brooke, at Shrimp and Glitz, she wears the cutest clothes ever and has posted some of her Gameday outfits on her blog here.
This would be a darling Gameday dress...designed by Annabelle Laroque.

How cute are these school sashes to wear with your dresses?! Annabelle Laroque. You can also get your monogram on these them:)
How cute is this y'all?
Of course, your koozie MUST match your Gameday outfit. Check out these custom monogrammed koozies from Invite Cottage.

These koozies are from a new company I'm excited about...Southern Dignity. In December, they will be offering Southern clothing for a Southern lifestyle...classic style and rich tradition. Specializing in the qualities that define our culture and cater to the men and women that exemplify it.
You can also have a custom wreath made to show your school spirit...check out the fabulous wreaths at this Etsy shop here.
In addition to the usual Gameday foods of chicken wings, slider burgers, dips, chips, et cetera, these brownies made in the shape and design of footballs would be a hit at the table!

Cake pops are all the rage now. For the cutest, most show-stopping cake pops ever, visit Marilyn at Pink Martinis and Pearls. She posted a tutorial here for these awesome pops! Aren't they the best?! I LOVE them!!!

What a wonderful post, Miss Janice! I feel most honored to have my cake pops included. :). I can't believe how the gridiron ladies of the south dress for game days. Out west, anything goes and that usually means jeans. You have so much work to do out here. lol! xoxo

The Ole Miss fashion in that picture screams the fashion at the parties my parents throw. (Daddy bleeds all things Rebel, which means his daughter better too!)
