5 Party Themes for Your Summer BBQ
Hosting a BBQ is a great way to spend time with family and friends during the warm summer months. If you are planning on hosting a BBQ, you may be racking your brain trying to come up with a fun theme that all of your guests can enjoy. Here are five party theme ideas that can help to make your BBQ a blast.
A Mexican Fiesta
Did somebody say Mexican fiesta? A Mexican fiesta is characterized by bright colors, fun decorations and of course, margaritas. Set up a nacho or taco bar, hang a pinata or two and sit back while your guests all enjoy carne asada or Mexican spiced chicken.
A Hawaiian Luau
Nothing screams a summer party quite like a Hawaiian Luau themed party. Grab leis for your guests, put out cute tiki men, and decorate with palm trees and Hawaiian flowers. Hawaiian Luau themed events never go out of style, so you can reuse your decor year after year as well, making this a great option for those who host frequent summer BBQs.
A Decade Themed Party
While a Mexican or Hawaiian themed event is fun, these themes can be overdone. If you have had friends or family who have recently hosted BBQs featuring these themes, you may be looking for something a bit more unique. In this event, consider a decade themed BBQ party. Pick your favorite decade, such as the 50s or the 80s and let your guests know. They can dress in attire that fits the decade, you can select decor to fit the theme, and you can enhance the BBQ with decade-appropriate music.
An All-White Event
BBQs are typically laid back, casual events. But if you are looking to make yours a bit more upscale and sophisticated, consider an all-white event. Decorate in all white and have your guests wear all white. It isn't kosher to wear white after Labor Day, so be sure to plan your all-white event early in the summer season.
While a great theme can enhance your BBQ, it won't make or break it. But having bad food can. If you love to host BBQs, investing in a new smoker can ensure your food is always tasty and your guests always leave your party satisfied.
