The Perfect Backyard BBQ

Before you start inviting people over to chow down on some scrumptiously grilled meats, tasty sides, and some desserts, make sure your backyard is the perfect destination for your BBQ party with these top tips!

Time For A Little Clean Up

If you haven’t already done some backyard spring cleaning, now is the time to do it. Take some time to clean up any debris and throw away old junk not being used. Give your lawn a mow and drag that weed-eater out, too. Clean off the walkways and the deck to make sure no one will be tripped up, and if you are feeling really productive, give the backyard a pressure wash to make it feel clean and ready for your barbecue shindig.

Set Up Seating Areas

When throwing a barbecue, make sure there is plenty of seating for everyone! Consider setting up different seating areas so people can feel comfortable and also give them options of where and who they sit near. Add some bright colored pillows to your chairs and couches to add instant style. Also, place some of the seating under a covered patio or pergola provides shade for your guests.

Get Cooking in Your Outdoor Kitchen

No one wants to have a backyard BBQ and be running in an out of the house to get the foods and beverages! Not only will it let your air conditioning out of the house, but bugs will get in your home and you are likely to miss out on some of the fun! An outdoor kitchen is perfect for entertaining and everything is right there in the backyard! Your grill, refrigerator, storage and more–all to help your barbecue party go off without a hitch! If an outdoor kitchen isn’t in the budget, consider getting a new grill, like the popular Big Green Egg, a Fire Magic, or a Memphis Grill.

Cozy Around the Fire Pit

Everyone loves sitting and digesting around a fire pit after a good meal. Wind down the party and move everyone around the tantalizing glow of the fire. People will be more likely to hang around and chat with a nice fire burning. Make sure to arrange some seats close by, and maybe even indulge in some smores after the delicious meal!

Light Up the Night

Adding some outdoor lighting to your backyard is a simple way to add ambiance and elegance to your barbecue party. There are plenty of options, from string lights, solar lights lining the walkways, or landscaping lights to help highlight your flowers and decor.

Your Backyard BBQ Destination

By following these simple tips, you will be inviting guests over in no time. By cleaning up, adding seats, an outdoor kitchen and some lights, your friends and family will be begging to come over for that brisket, ribs, and other barbecue goodies you’ve cooked up.
