Barbecue: The Quintessential Summer Meal

What is summer in the good old U.S. of A. without BBQ? Well, it’s not a party or an event, that’s for sure. This is the time of year to incorporate the quintessential summer menu into your event planning and party hearty under the sun.

The Menu
BBQ entails a whole lot of options: barbeque pork, barbeque chicken, barbeque beef, barbeque veggies. And, it’s not just about the grill. There are all those yummy, finger licking side dishes too!

  • Slow roasted brisket
  • Pulled pork
  • Skewers
  • Northwest Salmon
  • Busy Bee Baked Beans
  • Grilled Veggies
  • Coleslaw
  • Roasted Potato Salad
  • Picnic Macaroni Salad
  • Cookies, Dessert Bars, & Pie

We have all the options for you and your guests!

Décor
While it’s the time of year to indulge in some slow roasted BBQ, it’s also the time of year to soak up the sun! As the long as the weather holds, which is typically not an issue for the blue-sky season of the Pacific Northwest in the summer, take your barbeque event outside! A fancy spread in the garden, but still with the good home-cooked feel of just the right sauce and just the right fixings will make your summer BBQ event a hit, for sure! Checkered tablecloths, wildflower bouquets in Mason jars or brightly colored buckets, and even picnic benches around the dusty dance pit will help with your event theme. Think bandana prints and lots of red, white, and blue. The 4thof July runs all summer long in the entertainment and catering world. Why not?

Entertainment Ideas

No matter the purpose of your party this summer, there’s always a bit of extra wiggle room for some fun and games. Guests like to be entertained! Think about a dance “floor” centered in the grass or create your own dance pit with some kick up your heels country music. If you’re having little ones at your event, consider a bubble blowing station with individual bubble bottles or even the giant rigs for kiddos to take turns creating gigantic globes of soap. Homemade ice cream (with guest participation, of course) is always a hit, as is saltwater taffy, and stories by the fire pit. Summer truly is the best!

Barbeque and the summer time are cause for celebration. Make your event big, make it classy, but also make it fun! Hearty and tasty food, cold drinks, the ultimate rustic décor, and games galore will make this backyard BBQ this best on the block!
