Gather your friends for backyard summer fun

Sure, it’s hot outside, but sunny days and warm evenings are perfect for get-togethers and shindigs. Use these simple ideas to help make yours a hit.

Pick a playlist. The right music will keep the party flowing, so think about the vibe you want to set. You can customize your own or select a themed station from your favorite internet radio service.

Supply some comfort. Fill a bucket or basket with sunscreen, bug spray, hand sanitizer or items your guests may have forgotten.

Protect your drinks. Poke holes in cupcake liners and stick straws through to keep your drinks fly free.

Upgrade your water. Add herbs and fruits to your water pitcher for a flavorful drink option.

Make it a picnic. Throw a blanket or rug (or three) on the grass and add a few pillows for an easy relaxation station.

Grill away. It’s easy to cook crowd-pleasing favorites while you remain outdoors with your guests. Check out these recipes custom-created by our Aprons chefs.
