Create fun decorations

Instead of spending a lot of money on your decorations, just make them yourself! Decorate mason jars with some simple ribbon and put some flowers in them, or string old Christmas lights around your trees.

Ramp up the speakers

Every party needs some great music! You can either make your own playlist, or use one of Spotify’s playlist like their Summer BBQ or the Ultimate Summer one. If you want some mellow background music, try their Summer Acoustics playlist!

Have some fun lawn games

We will have a more in depth list of the best lawn games to play, but in the meantime try some Capture the Flag or create your own Slip and Slide using garbage bags or a tarp and a hose.


Plan a great menu that includes all the cookout favorites

Have a wide variety of foods for all guests, but also stay with the classics like hamburgers, coleslaw, and fruit salad!

Have an endless supply of beverages

A cookout isn’t complete unless you have an ice cold beverage in your hand. Keep your coolers stocked with some soda, beers, and water. You can also make pitchers of homemade lemonade and sweet tea.

Have rain plans too

While it should always be hot and sunny in summer, sometimes Mother Nature has other ideas. You can work around her by either having a rain date or move the festivities indoor.

Make a campfire and have s’mores

Speaking of classic summer foods, you can’t have a cookout without roasting some marshmallows. Even if you don’t have a firepit, have guests use the grill to help them make the perfect summer dessert!
