How To Host The Perfect Backyard BBQ This Independence Day

Posted by

If you’re feeling patriotic and want to throw a backyard BBQ this Independence Day, Welke’s House of Roses in Milwaukee wants to help. Our flower delivery service ensures you’ll have the perfect floral arrangements at your event.

Paint the town red… and white and blue.

You may not actually need that extra outdoor pillow, and nobody is twisting your arm to buy those red, white, and blue striped straws — but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t buy them! This is the one time of year you can decorate everything with those patriotic colors, so take advantage of it. Add flags and banners throughout your backyard and use colorful tablecloths with the stars and stripes. Don’t hold back!

Make easy, delicious food.

There’s no reason you can’t be easy on yourself while also making food that’s easy on the stomach and the eyes. Make up some cold pasta dishes and potato salad ahead of time, and fire up the grill for burgers, brats, and grilled corn. S’mores, ice cream, and popsicles are all simple desserts that don’t require much time either. Toss those patriotic blueberries and strawberries into your fruit salad, onto your frosted cake, or over your fresh spinach salad. They’re tasty and colorful — what’s not to love?

Bring in fresh flowers.

You can create the perfect ambience for your backyard BBQ by adding a few key elements: plenty of drinks, plenty of red, white, and blue decor, and plenty of flowers. Flowers will soften your backyard’s aesthetic, bring some height to your tables full of food, and fill your backyard with a soft, sweet smell. One of the best parts of decorating with summer flowers or special occasion flowers this 4th of July? You can decorate your home with them afterward.

If you have someone among your friends and family who is serving or who has served in the military, why not go ahead and send flowers to them while you’re at it? Or if someone is abroad right now but has a partner at home, flowers delivered to their doorstep will show you care.

Keep games on hand.

You may think you only need games for any kids who attend your BBQ. While you’ll definitely want games to help keep the kids busy, you and your adult friends can enjoy them as well — especially once you get a few drinks in you! Have croquet set up in the yard (be careful so people don’t trip over the posts!) and throw in a giant Jenga or Scrabble game and you and your guests will stay entertained for hours.

The most important part of your backyard celebration, of course, is that you and your friends and family will be spending time together. When you follow these tips and throw in local flower delivery from Welke’s House of Roses, you’ll be in luck. Those fireworks at the end of the night will feel like the perfect ending to all of your preparation and fun!
