It's time for the summer BBQ season- and I for one cannot wait! Bring on the steaks and seafood! Bring on the fruity summer drinks and ice cream! Bring on checkered tablecloths and citronella candles and don't forget the s'mores! Here are 12 great summer BBQ ideas to get us started!
Summer BBQ Ideas:
These lemon raspberry yogurt pops from Annie's Eats would be perfect after a game of lawn volleyball with the kids!
I know EXACTLY what I would love to grill this weekend- these grilled lobster tails with sriracha butter from A Farmgirl's Dabbles look amazing! Does this scream “Welcome to Summer!” or what?
And they must be served with BBQ corn! I've been wanting to try grilling corn in the husk– and this recipe from Donal Skehan tells me exactly how to do it!
And a summer BBQ HAS to have fluffy homemade biscuits, right? I think so! These fluffy buttermilk biscuits from She Wears Many Hats look fantastic!
And for dessert, I would love to serve these chocolate caramel shortbread bars from Buns in My Oven…
Or maybe these salted caramel chocolate chip blondies from My Baking Addiction….
Or maybe I should just make both and call it a day!
My kids would love these layered red, white, and blue drinks from The Girl Creative!
This pink moscato lemonade is calling to me! Raspberries, bubbly, and pink lemonade- yum! From Julie's Eats and Treats.
Summer BBQ Ideas for Decor and Printables:
Hostess with the Mostess has a great set of free printables for a summer BBQ that includes a DIY hot dog station! I love this!
This patriotic burlap table runner looks simple to make! A great idea from Domestically-Speaking.
It would be fun to make this patriotic pinwheels with the kids and place them on tall sticks to line the driveway- from Skip to My Lou.
I am in love with these chevron-striped flower pots– and I love how Angie from Echoes of Laughter found Frog tape in a Chevron pattern! I would try these in red, white, and blue for a summer BBQ!
