No, thank you I am already a fan of PureWow.

No, thank you I hate beautiful things.

After a peaceful summer of 2020, we are very eager to receive our friends and family to come to the backyard for partying. So, this year, we went all out, from the most delicious grilled food to the charming backyard table view. Read on for information about decorations, menus, and events to make your next barbecue party a book.

Lighting is the easiest way to turn your basic backyard into an outdoor oasis. Whether you are hosting an intimate dinner party or a lively family gathering, these string lights can create a charming atmosphere.

Forget going crazy to the grocery store the night before the barbecue party. Instead, order 8 pounds of steak, ground beef, hot dogs, chicken drumsticks, and trout fillets and deliver them directly to your door. Crowd Cow sources grass-fed meat from independent, sustainable family farms and cooperatives, and has a wide range of choices (including American and Japanese wagyu).

Listen to us: we can decorate a neutral tablecloth with flowers, candles and beautiful tableware. But we are fascinated by the classic checkered cloth, because it will give your table a retro, casual look. Prices vary by size and shape.

You will never forget buns, potato chips, ketchup or napkins, but kimchi is essential and often gets lost in the shuffle. Enhance your burger with some next-level cakes that are rich in flavor and irresistible crunch. We are big fans of SuckerPunch sweet onion spear and three pepper kimchi slices.

Never trek all the way from the swimming pool to the deck to add again. With this convenient mobile cooler-equipped with an ice bucket and glassware tray-on the deck, drinks will come to you.

You don't need to completely redo your backyard to accommodate the fire pit. Whether your guests are warming up on a cool night or roasting marshmallows for s'mores, this compact desktop version will get the job done.

Once the barbecue season officially enters, we will put *anything* on those hot grate-including everyone's favorite summer fruit. The smoky and sweet watermelon is perfectly matched with rich cheese and fresh herbs, but this combination is unexpected and your guests will surely be impressed. (By the way, this is the easiest way to cut a watermelon.)

Potato Salad: For any barbecue party, it is as essential as coleslaw, macaroni and cheese, baked beans and vegetable skewers. But if you buy it in a store, it's likely that it's mainly mayonnaise... and it's quite boring. Here, we use starchy potatoes instead of broccoli florets, and mayonnaise instead of Greek yogurt, sour cream and Dijon mustard.

Hot weather is not suitable for this refreshing miracle of no cooking. This cold soup is as simple as mixing fresh produce, herbs, and Greek yogurt in a blender until smooth. Bake a cheesy Asiago baguette for dipping, which goes a step further.

Boiled seafood is delicious and unpalatable. Putting all the essentials on the kebabs and placing them on the grill makes the preparation and cleaning of this dish a million times easier. Did we mention that they are coated with spicy cajun butter?

Say with us: I can cook steak at home. Don't let the meat scare you-it only takes about seven minutes on each side of the grill. All the flavours are concentrated in the lively marinade, made with Worcestershire, herbs, vinegar and garlic. Be sure to let the steak sit for about 15 minutes before slicing.

Meet the laziest summer dessert ever. The crust only needs four basic ingredients, and the fruit filling is just strawberries, sugar, and store-bought vanilla ice cream. If you don’t want to splurge on mini pie pans or single-serve ramekins, please continue to use disposable paper bowls.

'This is the season to walk through sprinklers, slide down slides and participate in water gun battles. Equip your space with a variety of equipment, from double water slides for racing to illuminated sprinklers, to help your guests have fun while staying cool. If you are lucky enough to have your own swimming pool, you can decorate it with some super-top floats. If not, there are plenty of affordable inflatable swimming pools that can accommodate several children at the same time.

We are talking about tug-of-war competitions, wheelbarrow and potato sack competitions, egg tossing-you can think of it. Divide everyone into groups and accumulate points throughout the day through different activities. Finally, summer prizes were awarded to the winners, such as beach tote bags filled with towels, beach toys and portable coolers, or s'mores gift bags filled with skewers, graham biscuits, chocolate bars and exquisite marshmallows.

The easiest dessert at a party? Of course, you don't have to make it yourself. Just buy various flavors of ice cream in the store, fill the bowl with a few scoops in advance, and let your guests enjoy hot fudge, sugar crumbs, whipped cream and even homemade strawberry shells and other ingredients. If you want to be the most popular hostess, you can grill some pineapple slices, half strawberries or even mango skewers to increase your summer bet.

There are two ways to solve this party theme. The expensive way is to rent a mini ferris wheel, carousel and other rides for the kids to enjoy while barbecue. A more affordable way is to use classic games (such as beanbag toss, balloon dart or horseshoe) to set up a DIY booth and provide prizes. In that case, you can spend a little more money on the fare and spring of the ice cream machine and cotton candy machine.

Just like they did in Coney Island. It gives adults a chance to enjoy the fun of nostalgia, while children cheer for them. Since the hot dog eating contest may bring choking hazard to the children at the barbecue party, it is better to hold a pie eating contest for them. Just fill the store-bought pie crust with chocolate pudding and whipped cream, and eat them face down. (This is self-evident, but you need to have a camera ready.)

You may not have been to a movie theater in a while. But there is no need to leave your comfort zone to watch a few movies. Install a projector in your backyard and get together to participate in a movie marathon that is far from social. Ask all your guests to bring lawn chairs and blankets to sit on, while you are dealing with snacks (we are thinking about preparing homemade popsicles for kids and exquisite popcorn or cooked food for adults.) If you want the party to last In the morning, set up a few tents or spread some sleeping bags and camp in the yard.
