Summer’s here and the time is right for backyard parties. If you have a new Taylor Morrison home designed for easy outdoor entertaining you have a head start on hosting a sensational party. But, even if your great outdoors is a little patch of lawn, a patio or a front porch, you can still have the best summer bash on your block with these ideas and your own creative touches.
Plan for Fun
Forget about fussy little canapes and elaborate decorations. You and your guests will have a much better time when you focus on keeping it simple. Get simple summer party planning tips that will entertain adults and keep the kids happy, too. Find cool and cooling ideas for summer party themes for backyard BBQs, ice cream parties and a water party with no pool required.
Who wants to be a short-order cook / bartender when everyone else is having fun? Plan your party around a few simple, simply delicious dishes. Look for summer entree and side dish recipes you can make ahead like Fall Off the Bone Ribs, BLT Pasta Salad and Bacon-Wrapped Hot Dogs. Elevate your backyard barbecue with recipes for beefed- up burgers, carefree kabobs and refreshing watermelon coolers and cherry lemonade shakes–punches you can serve with or without alcohol.
