Although the 4th is over, there is still plenty of nice weather yet to come, and lots of opportunities to throw a fantastic backyard bash. Make it an event to remember - and maybe repeat - with some new ideas. These tips and tricks will keep your guests smiling and satisfied.
Build a S’mores Bar
You can’t throw a backyard party without s’mores! Get your pokers ready and set aside a tray of graham crackers, chocolate, and marshmallows. Substitute your favorite chocolate candies like peanut butter cups for a new twist. If you really want to get creative, toss out the graham crackers and use bacon weaves instead; bacon is always a guaranteed hit!
Light Up Your Trees
One of the easiest ways to make your backyard party even better is to buy some string lights and wrap them around your trees. It won’t take long to set up and it will keep your backyard shining all night long.
You can’t go wrong with sliders for your outdoor party. Not only are they easy to make, but everyone will be reaching for the last one. Whether you make cheeseburger, Philly cheese steak, chicken, or pulled pork sliders, we can guarantee that they’re always a hit for outdoor parties.
Snack On Your Centerpiece
Use clear jars or bowls and add some snacks and create centerpieces that double as munchies. It’s a cheap and easy way to add that extra pizzazz to your table.
Create Some Sweet Sippers
Don’t forget about these sweet summer sippers that are to die for. Not only are they easy to make, but your guests will be begging for more.
Set up Some Backyard Games
Nothing makes a barbecue like a good variety of backyard games. Summer staples include cornhole, ladder golf, lawn darts, and bocce ball. To really add to the fun, try a new or DIY yard game. There are a ton of options and ideas available on Pinterest.
Summer is winding down, but there is still plenty of time to host the best backyard summer bash. If you’re looking for help getting the perfect landscaping done beforehand, contact Ehlinger Lawn Care.
