Wellington FL – April 5, 2012– Gracie Street Interior Design returns to judge and award the best tailgate concept, theme and execution at the Third Annual International Gay Polo Tournament on April 14, 2012 at Grand Champions Polo Club. Gracious hospitality in the form of tailgating has long been associated with the equestrian sports.
According to M. Douglas Mutch of Gracie Street, “There is a tradition of tailgating in the equestrian world. Traditional and historic is one approach I admire and respect, however we are also looking for originality, innovation, décor, the quality of the food and refreshments and how it all ties together to make the atmosphere festive. The tailgate should have character.”
Gracie Street will judge the contest and award and donate the prize of a basket filled with sumptuous treats and goodies from Gracie Street Interior Design.
“I’m honored to judge the tailgate contest. It couldn’t be a more fun way to spend a Saturday,” shared Mutch. “I spend the day invited to creative and friendly mini parties at an incredible polo tournament. It is so much fun. What could be better?”
Tailgate space is limited and selling fast. Call 561-753-3389 now to secure your spot and start planning your tailgate today!
