Football & Fajitas Dinner Party

Along with some of our other favorite things about fall, comes football season! We may be a group of gals at IBT HQ but that doesn’t mean we don’t like to dress up in our favorite fan girl gear, and support our team. So, when Tracy, founder of Fangirl Sports Networkcombined football with fajitas and a killer margarita, we were totally on board! She shares all the details below, including mouthwatering food and a recipe for the aforementioned Harvest Margarita. Finally, how cute is the football and fajitas dinner party theme?!

Two of the things I love most in life are football and entertaining. I have friends over many a Sunday to enjoy delicious food and drinks and bring moral support while watching my beloved San Francisco 49ers. After numerous viewing parties and tailgates, I thought it would be a nice change to have an elegant football-themed dinner party. I invited my football group over for a Football and Fajitas dinner party on a warm October evening.
