Let's Throw A BBQ Party13:14
Last weekend we had our first BBQ of the year, and even though it was just the two of us with a £2 Tesco disposable BBQ it's got me super excited for lots more to come. We've owned our house for almost two years, but we've never really got proper use out of the garden as we've been doing up the house and clearing out all the weeds/rotting old sheds the old owners left behind, so this year we've vowed to host a little BBQ party with friends.
I think it’s always nice to decorate the garden for a BBQ party, in the past I’d of always swayed to using cute bunting, but currently I’m loving quirkly little lights, like pineapples & flamingos that help to add a little glow as the drinks flow! I thought the adorable Orla Kiely lanterns would also help to make a warm atmosphere in the evening too, plus they're super colourful so would look sweet dotted around during the day too. Personally, I always tend to look at plastic cup & crockery for outdoors as you don’t want to be worrying about breaking your best bits, but plastic doesn’t have to be tacky or boring.. I’m loving these vintage champagne glasses from, that would be perfect for cocktails too, and I’ve always had my heart set on the anorak melamine ranges, especially the bunny collection (obviously!).
The tiny BBQ probably isn't the most efficient for a BBQ party, but it's just too cute not to include, plus who wouldn't want a turquoise and lime BBQ.
