What says summer better than a home cooked BBQ? The time to start planning is now! Surprise all your friends and family with a get together that will make their weekend even better!
Here’s How:
Start with a plan. What kind of barbecue do you want to make? How many people are you going to invite? Once you have a plan, you can start shopping for supplies and making preparations.
Set the mood. Decorate your backyard with festive lights, streamers, and balloons (this is where we come in). Cook up some delicious food. We all know that BBQ is a crowd pleaser and there are so many options! Don't forget the sides, like potato salad, macaroni salad, and grilled vegetables (we’ll provide you with some recipe ideas).
Have plenty of drinks on hand. Alcoholic beverages and non alcoholic beverages are always great to have.
Plan to play some games. Cornhole, card games, and horseshoes are all classic backyard games that are sure to be a hit. If you have younger guests, you can set up a water balloon toss to keep them entertained!
Relax and enjoy the party! This is your time to relax and enjoy the company of your friends and family. So sit back, relax, and let the good times roll!
