Theme and Décor
If having a large barbeque or event, consider having a theme to add some fun and excitement to your barbeque. Hawaiian is always a hit, and invite your guests to wear their favorite Hawaiian shirt to commemerate the experience. Palm leaves and tiki torches and add your barbeque that flare tof special festivity.
Food and drinkNumber of guests
The reason why they're all coming! Be sure to have plenty of drinks on hand for those hot summer days to keep you and your guests hydrated. Keep in mind, if there will be some kids, you might want to consider a table for just the kids too. Be sure to check out our Marinating & Grilling Tips.
Based on the number of guests you are catering to will determine the size of the menu.
Give people a reminder or an invite about your barbeque. This is a good way to inform them of any theme you might be planning as well as any special attire that might be recommended.
Keep in mind if you're having kids over, you may need something to entertain them as well. A pool is always fun but if that's not availble gather some games for the kids.
Make sure that the guests have a memorable barbeque full of fun, excitement, and enjoyment. Remember this is a time for you to enjoy yourself, that's what the barbeque is all about!
