Planning the Perfect Backyard BBQ

Planning the Perfect Summer BBQ

With summer just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about entertaining outdoors. Here are our favorite tips for making your own backyard the place to be this summer.

Tip 1: Create a list of needed supplies ahead of time. It can be a hassle to go to the market several times. Always remember to stock up on ice and napkins.

Tip 2: Keep the menu simple. This ensures party planning remains stress free and you’ll have time to relax with your friends during the BBQ. Burgers are always a great option. Try putting the array of condiments in mason jars for an alternative way to display your spread.

Tip 3: Quench the thirst of your guests. Try this Strawberry-Hibiscus Tea Lemonade for a fun twist on a summer classic.

Tip 4: Don’t forget about the décor. Bring in a pop of summer color with bold accent cushions for your outdoor dining set. By adding string lights to your backyard, you and your guests can enjoy the party long after the sun has gone down.

Tip 5: Keep the kids and adults busy with fun outdoor games. Learn how to make your own cornhole boards, also known as bags. It’s the perfect game for the entire family to enjoy.

These are just a handful of tips to ensure you’re set for the summer season ahead. Check out our Pinterest board for even more outdoor entertaining ideas.
