Backyard Party Essentials with a Summer BBQ

Backyard Party

We are having a backyard party. Before we get started we need to think about the invitation and party essentials. This special day can be a summer BBQ, a family gathering for celebrating Father’s Day or a summer holiday. A celebration for Independence Day (North American’s 4th of July)! Maybe it is a surprise birthday party and keeping it simple with an outdoor barbecue. A picnic in the backyard does not have to be for any special occasion at all. It is the time to enjoy the day with the sun shining brightly and relax in a comfortable outdoor chair. Grilling hamburgers, hot dogs or even a nice juicy steak, or for the vegetarians, grilled vegetables on a kabob. Sipping on strawberry smoothies made from the garden berries or for those who drink alcohol, a wine cooler or a favorite beer. A beverage of your choice will top off the thirst of a hot summer day.

If the decision is to have a party at a public park, then everyone who wants to can enjoy a game of baseball or softball. Maybe someone brought a football or soccer ball; perhaps there is a tennis court or a golf course.

Outdoor Entertaining Essentials

Creating a Check List

Just what would be the needed to make this outdoor party complete?

 First, the invitations needs to be sent out to those friends and family.
 Second, make a list of the food and drinks. Make sure that there will be plenty for the group. Let those know they need to bring a dish, if that is your plan.
 Third, decide if you plan on having music and a live band, make sure that it is within your budget. And if it happens to be in your yard, be sure to invite the neighbors, so they will not complain about the noise. Keep it a little more simple, a radio or computer with a personalized image on a speaker to amplify the sound works nice and found on Zazzle.

Getting the party started, we need to send out the invitations. The Summer Party invitation is one of many from my Zazzle stores. This invite shown in the background of the Fun, Sun, and Games image above. We also have a watermelon tote bag, baseball, beverage cooler, and hamburger picnic products.

Weber Grill and Omaha Steaks

Best Charcoal Grill and Mouthwatering Steaks

We have had a few Weber Charcoal Grills. Love the charcoal taste to food when cooking out. Some day we may buy a gas grill but it really does taste better with charcoal. Weber is a well-known brand that has high-quality products.

As for the Omaha Steaks, we have always wanted to try this brand. But it was not until our daughter bought it for us as a Christmas present. Our package was a little different than the one featured. We had steaks, steaks burger, twice baked potatoes and apple turnovers in ours. I really have to give it five stars on taste. The Omaha Steaks package featured here include bacon-wrapped filet mignons, steaks burgers and stuffed baked potatoes. This would be the one that I would like to try next.

Riviera Outdoor Woven Bar and Two Stools

Ideal for the Host to Serve Beverages

An outdoor bar is a nice touch for the host to serve beverages. Comes with two chairs. Made of a strong synthetic resin wicker, rust resistant, recyclable, and can withstand the weather when it rains. Home Styles Riviera Outdoor Woven Bar and Two Stools – Available here

Picnic Table and a Platform Bench

Don’t Forget the Chips

Lastly, we will need a picnic table or several tables for our company. This sturdy wooden table measures 71″ L x 35.5″ W x 29″ H. The table and benches have a folding steel frame to make it easy to transport.

The platform bench is ideal to hold those little extras from the party. It can be used indoors and outdoors.

While the guess is waiting for the main course, or to include it with the hamburgers, steaks, or grilled vegetables, have them munch on some healthy kettle style potato chips.

What Completes a Party

Good Company and Fun

Basically, what completes a party as far as I am concern is being with good company. Friends and family that enjoy sharing stories and having some laughs, playing cards and outdoor games and best of all…the picnic style food.

    I think having a backyard party in your house would be very fun! Or even better at a park where the cleanup is easier. It is such a great way to get the family together. I think a summery cocktail is in order. :)
