With Spring weather finally here in Denver and Summer (hopefully) fast-approaching, it is definitely outdoor Grilling season!
Which means all kinds of fun outdoor gatherings and parties!
3 Tips to Hosting a Fabulous Summer gathering!!
For me being the hostcomes easily but for you it doesn’t . In either case, here are my top 3 tips that will help you to have a fabulous summer grille or gathering.
- CHOOSE A Grille / BBQ THAT SUITS YOU
Do you plan to host only a couple of people? Do you have a tiny patio space? Or do you want to have large gatherings and feed the masses? Do you have a large yard with ample room for bigger outdoor soirees?
Choose a grille – charcoal or gas – that matches well with how you plan to host your get togethers. Do you need a large grill space? Do you need a side burner? What about a sear burner or a smoker?
Since we (Cashletics) plan for good sized patio and a large side/ or yardd, when it came time to buy a new Grille this year we chose the Brinkmann 5 Burner Gas Grill with Smoker and Sear Burner from The Walmart with all the features: 694 inches of cooking space, 5 burners, side burner, sear burner and a smoker!
- PICK EASY CLASSIC RECIPES
And it’s perfect for us because we can skip heating up the kitchen altogether and make everything – right down to the side dishes – outside!
HERE ARE A FEW OF THE CASHLETICS RECIPES THAT WHEN PUT TOGETHER MAKE A DELICIOUS YET SIMPLE TO PREPARE MEAL:
Beer Can Chicken
My Mom’s BBQ Potatoes
BBQ Grilled Vegetables
- SET AN ATTRACTIVE TABLE
You definitely need to up the pretty factor for your party.
Bring indoor decor out (for the duration of your party)
Use nice looking outdoor dishes
Fabric napkins are a nice touch
Use nice cushions, placemats, candles, etc.
Create a scene – with layers of texture and lighting – just like you would if you were hosting indoors.
