While summer isn't officially here until June 20th, in my mind Memorial Day has always been summer's kick-off. BBQ season begins, kids start counting down school days, and if you live in the Northeast the black flies are officially out (bleh!) - summer is metaphorically here!
Which leads me to this: it's time to get your summer entertaining on! Don't worry, I've scoured Pinterest and every retail store imaginable to present you with everything you need to host one epic summer holiday (or not!) BBQ. A memorable party is made up of more than just food. You also need the proper accessories for a themed event. Here are my favorite finds for red, white, and blue BBQ decor.
Next up: food. Pinterest is a fantastic place to find killer BBQ recipes. Just check out these beer and honey BBQ chicken skewers from Jo Cooks, or this 4th of July blueberry pie (that has such a great ring to it!) created by BetseyLife. They sound delicious, right?! I even found an article that features 10 Money-Saving Ideas for a Summer Barbecue. Who can't benefit from that?
You can find all of these recipes (plus a ton more!) and that money-saving article on the Shopswell Red, White, and Food Pinterest board.
Oh, and be sure to check out the complete collection of summer entertaining essentials - there are 29 more products to choose from!
