The Set Up

- Afternoon and early evening barbecues are the best, the temperature is nice, the sun is going down and you have lots of time to prepare before your guests arrive. Make sure to have bug spray on-hand!

- Stay casual, but ensure there is seating for everyone (even if it is a mix and match assortment of chairs, benches and picnic tables).

- Have a build your own bar or table (everyone can customize their plate and will enjoy having an interactive meal).

The Food

Everyone loves basics like burgers (beef or chicken) and hot dogs (cheddar smokies are great too!)

Don’t be afraid to ask everyone to bring something- this saves you cost and prep and sometimes a potluck is even more fun, you get to try new recipes1

A few favourites..

Rosted Dill Potato Wedges

Skewered Greek Meatballs

Greek Tortellini Salad

The Drinks

Always make sure to have non alcoholic options -in the summer heat we want to stay hydrated (and be able to get home!)

Set up a drink station, this is fun for your guests and serves as decor in the backyard (if possible, do this in the shade)

Lemonade Iced Tea- a classic flavor and so refreshing!

The Classic Mojito
