summer barbecue.

my kids are finished with school for this year, woo*hoo! while we are putting the final tweaks on our summer plans – i am hoping to enjoy as many barbecues as possible – i love grilling for dinner. I know some people who have never had a barbecue before! I didn’t even think that was possible, especially during the summer, but I guess it is. I’m trying to persuade them to consider getting a barbecue, as they are definitely missing out. Plus, having family and friends over when you’re having a barbecue party is probably one of the best things ever! Here are a few visual ideas for your barbecues this summer. i have had an obsession lately with recycling aluminum cans for projects. as you can see below – they make great pots for succulents! i love the silver contrast with the green plants.

also, one more detail below – while passing basket liners at whole foods i grabbed a pack to use for paper airplanes – a little activity that match the fun for the kiddos at your summer soirees. you could also put crayons on the table & let the little hands color on the brown kraft paper.

my idea for the mason jar is to use them to hold the napkin + utensils, then use it for drinks. I am planning a homemade soda bar for our father’s day celebration this weekend, and will share with you more details next week, but those mason jars are going to be used!

sources – water bottles, wooden crates, gingham napkins, mason jars, and mini chalkboards {great for photo props!}
