Sadly the end of summer is almost upon us and you only have a couple more chances to get outside with friends, have some drinks and fire up the grill. Follow these tips to close out your summer with the perfect BBQ!
Choose a theme
Since it’s the end of summer, prepare your guests for the coming season by having an autumn theme, complete with falling leaves and muted colors. The theme could even be incorporated in the food. Have a Hawaiian luau or a Southern BBQ cookout with all of the traditional fixings. If it’s going to get messy, maybe discourage your guests from wearing white.
Have unique summer drinks
This may be you and your guests’ last chance until next year to try a refreshing Ginger Shandie, Monkey Punch, or Peach Fizz. Don’t know what those are? Now is the perfect time to find out!
Don’t be afraid to get wet
Fill up buckets of water with squirt guns or make a slip n slide out of trash bags. Tell your guests to wear swimsuits and provoke an all out water war! Summer is about food, family and most of all fun! Your guests will thank you for the good time when the first snowflake hits!
