Backyard BBQ parties are a great way to celebrate summertime with family and friends. And they don’t have to break the bank because you can use a lot of what you have available while letting nature provide a beautiful backdrop and playground for both adults and children. Here is your roadmap to planning the ultimate backyard barbeque.
Work with what you already have
BBQ parties are a great way to celebrate and using a backyard offers an open outdoor space that can easily be transformed into a party area by bringing in colored balloons, using mason jars tied with ribbon for flower vases and renting matching linens for tablecloths. You might need to mow the lawn, but overall there will be a lot less prep needed for your outdoor event; you don’t need to dust, mop, or vacuum before or after.
Use the outdoor space for games and entertainment
Hosting a backyard party also allows for games to be set up and played much easier than indoors. Rent a game like horseshoes, miniature golf or cornhole and sit back to let the fun begin. You can also add to the enjoyment with a few rented concession stands, setting them up around the backyard, such as a snow cone machine or churro maker, to provide snacks to compliment the games.
Provide a shady area
An important thing to keep in mind with backyard parties is that your guests will be outside and if it’s a sunny or windy or rainy day, you want to make sure there’s a place for guests to get away from the weather elements. Renting a tent or canopy is the perfect solution for this, not to mention it also offers a shaded area to keep your food and drink. Misters and string lights are also great additions to your canopy.
At the end of the day, a backyard BBQ party is about celebrating with your guests and as host, one of the best things you can to do is keep that in mind as you plan for the party.
