Fun Party Ideas and Decorations To Make Your Next Backyard BBQ Unforgettable

Barbecue-Party-2The backyard BBQ is a stigma of summertime, but these events aren’t usually long-remembered. Friends quickly forget this occasion in favor of the next BBQ they’re invited to. If you want your guests to always remember your brilliant backyard get together, you’ve got to make the experience truly memorable.

Everything, including invites, décor, and food, has to be unique, in order that guests feel as though they’re attending a one-of-a-kind BBQ experience. Become a trendsetter with these unique BBQ party ideas and have your guests talking about your BBQ skills everywhere they go this summer.

Pick a theme and stick to it. Don’t just settle for pool party or a meaty theme. Do something incredible, like host a Tiki Bar theme, an Arabian Nights themed party or a good ol’ fashioned Americana BBQ. Make sure that your party’s invitations match the theme.

Dress the Part

Having the coolest apron is super important to a backyard BBQ of this magnitude. The Tactical BBQ Apron and Grill Sergeant BBQ Apron are excellent choices, especially if you’re hosting a camo/hunting themed BBQ. Both come with plenty of pockets that make for grilling tools, condiments and even beer.

Your BBQ tools can reflect your outdoor party’s overall theme. If you’re planning a masquerade or musketeer party, you’ll love Luckies of London’s BBQ Sword Cooking Tool. This tool comes with a musketeer mask and it’s really popular at themed BBQs. Try a personalized steak branding iron and create a one of a kind grilled concoction for each guest.

Ready to Serve
Perhaps the most important element of all, the food, should be as unique as your party is. So, find new ways to grill and serve those steaks, hamburgers, hot dogs, potato salads and drinks. It’s a good idea to include some vegan-friendly BBQ options, if your guests have different diets.

Keep everything icy cold in an Inflatabuffet

Store cold drinks (like the mason jars above!) and foods like fruits and salads over an inexpensive Inflatabuffet. We love these blow-up buffets because they are easy to move, store, and clean.


Party favors are a great way to keep guests talking about your BBQ. They’re something the attendee can take a sweet treasure home with them and they’ll be reminded of your party. It’s also worth noting that memorable parties are the ones that are the most fun.

Relax and Have Fun

The most important BBQ tip we can give you is to just have fun. If you stress yourself out, you may find that you’re the one who wants to forget this memorable day. Instead of stressing, keep a positive, fun attitude and you will quickly see your guests emulating this. If you want your guests to have a good time, you’ll need to relax and have some fun yourself.
