I am not sure how we are here already. It’s July 2nd and I just don’t know how that’s even possible! We’ll blink and in no time it will be winter. But let’s hit the brakes and make the most of summer while it’s here! Now is a great time to invite friends over for a summer backyard barbecue, especially after 2020. It may be too late to put something together for the July 4th weekend, but there are plenty of weekends before fall so let’s plan ! To start with, we’ve put together everything you need for the perfect summer BBQ!
The temperatures are so hot these days and if you don’t have your own pool, an inflatable pool can keep you cool. This lines pool from MYLLE has a diameter of 65 “with 15” sides and is therefore perfect for two adults or several children.
Comfortable seating for those looking to relax or sunbathe is essential. If you’ve ever relaxed in a beanbag chair, you know how cool they are, and this Stripes Camp Out beanbag from Pony Rider is made from natural recycled canvas, it’s durable and easy to carry around.
This Mon Oncle BBQ by RS Barcelona feels like a classic BBQ design when open and like an elegant briefcase with leather straps when closed, which makes it portable for any occasion. Although the grill is very aesthetically pleasing (it is available in 4 colors – blue, green, gray and cream), it is also designed for easy, powerful grilling for many years to come.
One of the most important ingredients in a good summer barbecue is food. In addition to the food to be grilled, simple snacks are important, as are all chips, dips and salsas. This Seva serving set from TIIPOI contains 5 pieces – large bowl, round bowl and three small bowls – which are perfect for holding any snacks or burger toppings.
Drinks are just as important as food. Whether you’re serving wine and beer or La Croix and White Claws, you need a place to keep them cold. The Frio LED Ice Bucket with Speaker from Koble not only keeps your bevs cool – it is equipped with speakers that you can sync with your mobile phone or tablet via Bluetooth so you can listen to all of your favorite Spotify playlists. You can also customize the mood by changing the colors in the light settings.
Let Poketo decorate your table with their colorful bamboo plates and cups. They’re funnier and more festive, and much better for the environment than styrofoam or paper plates. We love the Waves Bamboo Dinner Plate Set paired with the Blots Bamboo Cup Set, both of which contain four.
Add a fun game to the mix, like the rainbow colored Giant Tumbling Tower from SUNNYLIFE where everyone holds their breath and prayers they aren’t the one to bring it all down.
Now for a PPE (Public Service Announcement): DON’T FORGET TO WEAR SUN PROTECTION! Burns occur. We all know how painful it is and how damaging it is to the skin in the long run. Prevent the pain and grab the fragrance-free SPF 50 sun cream from SALT & STONE and apply it every two hours!
