When I think tailgate, I think cans of beer, screaming fans with painted faces, and processed cheese. I always wish I could partake in the festivities and merriment — just in a way that feels a bit more comfy.
The solution? Bring your rugs outside!
If you're attached to your indoor rugs (or just don't feel like moving all your furniture), pick up a rug that is specifically made for the outdoors and use it exclusively for parties. Here are a few outdoor rugs I'm currently crushing on.

Outdoor textiles don't need to stop at rugs, either: Consider bringing out your pillows, poufs, and ottomans and layering them atop your rug for a cozy gathering place your friends can settle into. Again, you can certainly buy outdoor-only versions, if you get the heebie-jeebies thinking about bring your pillows outside and then back in. The main thing is to just have lots of cozy, soft stuff for cuddling.
