Spring has sprung. The weather is slowly getting warmer and before you know it the summer months will be upon us. The best parts of summer often involve kicking back, relaxing with friends, and sinking your teeth into some amazing summer BBQ. Over the years, Falco’s Catering has provided countless gatherings with our wonderful BBQ catering and through our experience have picked up on what you need to host a memorable summer BBQ. Here are just a few tips to keep in mind when planning your event.
Set Up Lawn Games
Summer is the perfect time for games and some of the best lawn games require very little effort to set up and play. Games like horseshoes, badminton, croquet and cornhole provide fun for all ages and can be played with as few as two people.
Have a Summer Music Playlist
A playlist of 50 to 100 upbeat and laidback songs is perfect to play throughout the day to amplify the fun atmosphere. Even if you just have it playing as guests arrive, it can help set the mood for you BBQ and get people in the summer spirit.
Consider a Theme
While a theme will not make or break your summer BBQ, it can inject another level of fun for you and your guests. Some popular themes include Hawaiian Luau, 80s/90s, Wild West, and Americana, but feel free to get creative with it!
Keep Drinks Cold
There is nothing better on a hot summer day than a cold drink. Have coolers filled with a variety of drinks so your guests can help themselves. Consider a mix of alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages for guests of all ages.
Consider Having The Event Catered!
Shopping for and preparing all the food can be one of the most time consuming aspects of a summer BBQ. While some people enjoy doing this, for others it can be stressful and can keep them from enjoying their own event. By using a caterer, you can avoid worrying about that and just enjoy the great food and the company of your guests.
