Summer is well and truly here, and I have to say, we are loving the warm sunshine! Where there is sunshine and good company, there is the perfect excuse for a weekend BBQ with friends. So dust off the grill and get your backyard or patio space ready for the ultimate summer entertaining experience in your very own garden.
Having a BBQ is all about simplicity and ease. To help make things easier for you we’ve put together these entertaining tips as a guide.
Enough Food To Feed Your Tribe
Preparing a meal for a large number of people doesn’t need to be stressful. The beautiful thing about a BBQ is that it’s a very informal and light-hearted event. Why not turn your BBQ into a pot-luck? You’ll provide the grilled meats, and your guests can bring along cheese platters, bread, salads, and even dessert. Classic favourites like sausages, kebabs, steaks, and rissoles are always a hit at our family BBQ. What will you be serving up?
BBQ’s are fantastic when it comes to recipe planning too. They offer so much versatility with the kinds of meals you can prepare. Jamie Oliver and Webber offer some scrumptious recipes online, to spark your tastebuds with inspiration.
Get Creative With Your Seating Options
Make sure you have enough outdoor furniture to accommodate all of your guests. From classic outdoor settings to picnic rugs on the grass, you can never have enough options for accommodating your mingling guests.
Entertaining ranges like the Nardi and Kwila suites are fantastic! They’re durable, stylish, and comfortable all year round. Plus, they offer incredibly versatile arrangements, so that you can find the perfect chairs to match your table and home decor. Bench seats and bar stools are also a great option when entertaining a big group of people.

Keep The Kids Corner Busy
While you’re entertaining your guests at the ultimate summer BBQ, remember to keep the kids’ corner occupied too. There’s nothing worse than when all of the adults are having a great time and suddenly the kids start complaining that they’re bored. Perhaps plan a few fun activities for the littlies, or if you have a pool, you can encourage them to bring along their swimmers and floaties to take a dip?
