The best BBQ ideas for your next summer party.
A BBQ party is a great American tradition, where you can cook food cooked outside, share, and eat in a backyard, a park, the beach, or even a parking lot or rooftop. Hot dogs and hamburgers may first come to mind, but there are so many other recipes that are great on the grill and served to a crowd, along with plenty of traditional side dishes.
It’s not all about food for sure, because decor, drinks, and music are also really important. Take a look at these BBQ Party Ideas.
Pick a Unique BBQ Theme
There are so many summer BBQ parties throughout the season, make yours stand out by picking a unique theme. Your BBQ theme can be tailored to a specific type of food, holiday, occasion, location or interest. Be creative and make it fun!
Whether it’s a small family get together or a big event, invitations will spread the word! Use the BBQ party theme in the invitation design or create a Facebook event tailored to the theme of your choice.
Classic and Simple BBQ Decorations
Decorate your backyard using classic, simple and rustic details including your main BBQ party ideas but remember to keep things simple because the outdoors already provides a lot of the ambiance needed for a great party.
Our suggestion is to focus on lighting, table decor and centerpieces to enhance your BBQ outdoor celebration.
Solid tablecloths make plain picnic tables look festive. For centerpieces, use tin pails or tin watering cans or mason jars as vases for summer flowers and vintage vibes. Add instant atmosphere with fun lightings such as torches, paper lanterns or candles.
It’s all about the BBQ Party Food
An essential part of any BBQ Party is the food. Of course, baby ribs, pork, burgers, steak, and even fish will always work. Just make sure to include dishes (and side dishes) that can be served at room temperature to avoid melting or spoiling.
Serve a variety of grilled items, salads, and snacks for your outdoor celebration. Here are some classic BBQ party foods that will work well with any BBQ party theme:
- For snacking: potato chips, tortilla chips, or prepare any of these recipes: Cheesy Tortilla Chips, Bacon Guacamole, Bell Pepper Pico de Gallo, Esquites Guacamole, or a Super Easy Salsa Verde.
- On the grill: burgers, hot dogs, sausages, Grilled Beef Taquito Fajitas, steak tips, vegetable skewers, and Grilled Mexican Street Corn.
- On the side: Cook a great and fresh potato salad, pasta salad, coleslaw, french fries, or baked potatoes.
- For dessert: Something sweet is always a good idea! Think out of the box and serve some fresh watermelon slices, cook an apple pie, cookies, or ice cream sundaes.
These listed options are just some BBQ party ideas but our José Olé Taquitos will also be great to serve if you don’t want to spend so much time on the grill.
Our Taco Olé Cheese Casserole will be great to serve during your BBQ party because is a hot melted cheesy sensation that will make your guests want to crave and dip more.
Just Say Olé!
