6 Ideas for Outdoor Entertaining

6 Ideas for Outdoor Entertaining

There’s a slight hint of spring in the air, and with the weather slowly beginning to warm, it’s time to start thinking about moving your parties and gatherings outdoors! Whether you’re having an impromptu backyard BBQ or hosting a large scale event at home, now’s the time to prepare for entertaining al fresco!

Simple Servings

Keep food simple and relaxed. Forget the plates and serve easy food such as these pulled pork baps.  Wrap them in napkins for a rustic and authentic outdoor dining experience.

Ready Refreshments

Set up beverage stations so that guests can help themselves to drinks without having to wait. Galvanised tubs filled with ice will help keep bottles cool and it’s always a good idea to attach a bottle opener to the tub with ribbon or string so it doesn’t disappear!

Set the Mood

As the sun sets, add instant ambiance to your evening with outdoor lights.  Festoon lighting is really popular right now, and looks fabulous strung around a tree or fence for instant impact.

Stay Snug

Keep guests cosy and warm by setting up a basket of blankets for them to snuggle into once the evening goes off a little chilly.

Toast Marshmallows

There’s no nicer way to while away a lazy summer evening than by toasting marshmallows over a flame until they’re hot and gooey, and tasting delicious!

Light a Fire Pit

As the night grows cooler, enjoy the atmosphere and the crackle of a campfire without having to rough it, and set up a fire pit on your grass or patio for extra warmth.
