Welcome Table

Set up a welcome table near the entrance of the party space. When you’re outside and have wide open space it can help define the area.  

Bring an indoor table outside and place the framed printable sign on it.

Make snack cones and fill them with red and blue potato chips to match the theme. Guests can grab a cone and walk around the party freely. 

PARTY TIP: Use an old soda crate to display the snack cones. Find vintage crates at antique or thrift stores.

Use outdoor game paraphernalia as part of the décor. Place a couple of croquet balls in a wire basket.

Speaking of games, our favorite thing to do is play bocce ball or corn hole.  You don’t need a lot of space for these, nor will you exert yourself too much while playing.

Summer Party Buffet

Incorporate some of these ideas into your food buffet. Serve a classic menu of burgers but instead of making them full size, grill them as small sliders. I usually fill up my plate with summer side dishes, and a full size burger can sometimes be too much. 

Plus you could have different burger recipes like my Asian style burger, and sundried tomato burger alongside the best juicy burger recipe.

Use the downloadable tent cards to let guests know what they’re eating.

Transfer sauces into pretty containers. If there’s one thing you can do to elevate the design of a party, it’s serving your condiments in a lovely container.

Serve baked beans in small canning jars. They’re the perfect single serving size and guests can just grab and go. No messy drips while spooning from bowl to plate.

Add the printable circles on top of the jar lids for festive display decoration. Each circle has fun bbq themed words.

jars for drinks with straws and name tags tied on.

Use 8-ounce canning jars to serve drinks in. It’s and inexpensive idea and works great with an iced tea bar, a lemonade bar, punch, even beer.

Tie a tag on each jar so your guests can write their name on it and keep up with their beverage.

Easy Table Setting

The dinner table is set rather simply, but the layering makes it more interesting to look at. 

  • Turn wooden planter boxes upside down to act as a base for flower arrangements. 
  • Upcycle aluminum cans by washing them and using them as rustic flower vases.
  • Tie coordinating fabric around the can to instantly dress them up for any occasion.  
  • Create place settings with red and blue dishes. Use melamine for non-breakable option outside.
  • Add whimsical table decorations like a vintage-style wood & peg puzzle and a dish filled with retro-style bubble gum.

    Wondering if there is anything to do to keep them warm?

    1. Thank you Diane,
      Hmm, we always eat baked beans at room temperature, but maybe you could cover them with a hot soaked towel, or sit them in a shallow pan of hot water?
