Hosting a Memorial Day BBQ

It’s the first weekend of summer and that means warm nights, the good company of friends and family, and dining al fresco!  This weekend’s weather forecast is looking great – it’s the perfect excuse to gather friends and throw an impromptu Memorial Day barbecue!  There is no need to stress about last minute planning because we’ve got you covered on the ask, the scene, the games, the food and the drinks. First things first, send out a virtual invite with Red Stamp invitations.  Friends won’t be able to resist attending your last-minute party when these adorable invites pop up on their phones.  As for the décor, keep it simple!  Throw white cotton linen on a table and round up some mason jars for flower arrangements, hanging lanterns and even glasses!  Keep your guests busy with games such as croquet, bocce ball and corn hole.  Or if your looking to get creative, turn your lawn into a huge Twister game!  For the food and drink, grill season is upon us – get inspired with some of summer's best cookbooks. Hit the Kingfield Farmers Market for fresh ingredients {it makes all the difference}! If the forcast is anywhere near as warm as reported, you better plan on providing lots of liquids.  Make it easy for them to help themselves to drinks by setting up a beverage station.  And for grand finale, cap off the night with gourmet s’mores for dessert!

Last, but not least, remember to relax and enjoy the kick off to summer in the company of good friends and family!
