Memorial Day is this weekend and I think that marks the official kick off of BBQ season, right? Well with that in mind, I thought I'd share a few pictures from my cousin's graduation party last year since it was a fun BBQ theme.
We used dollar store picnic table cloths and chalkboard labels to create an all-American hot-dog stand look and feel.
Even the food trays were lined with cut-up plastic table cloths, tying everything together and making for easy clean-up.
I used the Silhouette to cut chalk-board vinyl into little labels, then we stuck them to folded card stock. The best part is that they are re-usable, so a set of these could serve you well at many parties.
Dessert was easy finger foods; brownies and mini cheesecakes.
A keg of Root Beer was a fun touch, and guests could order up a frothy cup or a foamy float.
Extra table cloths were made into a window valance, adding to the hot dog stand feel.
Everyone got their hot dogs just the way they liked them with the dress your own hot dog bar.
A chalk board menu gave guests the recipes for some of the best known hot dog favorites.
It was a great party and a fun BBQ. Everyone loved having so many topping options. We had tons of root beet left, and spent the next two days drinking more of it then we thought possible, but the keg was definitely a fun addition to the party.
I hope you enjoy Memorial Day (whether you BBQ or not).
Thank you to everyone who has served and those who currently serve in our military. I appreciate so much what you sacrifice to preserve our peace and freedom!
Thanks for reading!
