We hope that you’ve had lots of fun this Summer because as Labor Day weekend arrives it signals the imminent arrival of the Autumn season. Even though the first day of Fall officially arrives on September 22nd, we hope you get to enjoy what’s left of the closing summer weekends. If you’ve recently moved into a new Brock Built home, there’s no better way to celebrate a housewarming than a Labor Day BBQ with your family and friends. To help you with your party preparations we’re going to list some of our favorite must-have decorations for outdoor entertaining.
Lamps and Torches
Functional decorations that are both practical and attractive are tiki torches or other oil based lamps to light up your party. Oil lamps or torches work well for most nighttime settings but they can also serve as unlit decorative accessories during the daytime. When the sun goes down lamps and torches, provide beautiful and useful light sources. Bonus: If you add some citronella oil to both, they also work as a mosquito repellant.
Every southern home has a few of them or so it seems. The ultra versatile Mason Jar has so many uses, they seem to be good for practically everything. You can use them at parties for cold beverage glasses to snack containers, or multiple DIY decoration starters. They’re inexpensive, abundant, and very easy to work with overall. This makes them the perfect container to stock up on for your late summer BBQs. Your guests will appreciate this classic, stylish southern touch.
The most important part of an outdoor BBQ, next to the food and company, is the party games! No summer cookout is complete without entertainment and there are tons of different games for you to enjoy. You can’t go wrong with such classics as Cornhole, Jenga, Water balloon toss, and Horseshoes. No matter which party games you end up choosing, they can also act as a party decoration pieces giving your BBQ a more relaxed, fun feeling.
When you go into a restaurant, one of the first things you tend to look at is the menu, and the same goes for your guests at a party or BBQ. It’s important to make sure that everyone knows what you’re serving and a fun, easy way to do this is to write it on a chalkboard. They are functional, reusable, and can add a nice crafty homemade touch. Try adding some colorful chalkboard art or lettering to your party menu to enhance and add more style to this fun decorative choice.
