Prized Boards: Summer Barbecue Recipes and Decorating Inspiration

Entertaining, Parties | | | 1 Reply

Just because the Fourth of July holiday is past doesn’t mean you need to slow down on your barbecues. In fact, we recommend that you amp up your barbecue and backyard get-togethers at least through Labor Day! Summer is all about outdoor entertaining, which is why we can’t get enough of our Summer Barbecues by Pottery Barn Pinterest Board.

We’ve rounded up four of our current favorite images from the board. To learn more about them, keep reading.

  1. We love this idea for making individual drinks for your next barbecue from Material Girls. Just pre-mix them and serve in Mason jars! We recommend trying some spiked agua fresca for a refreshing summer cocktail treat.
  2. We love these charming barbecue invitations that Southern Curls and Pearls created for her best friend’s wedding shower. Elements like this can elevate a standard barbecue to something extra special!
  3. While the focus may be on the grill, don’t forget about dessert! With this recipe for this Mixed Berry Shortcake Parfait, your guests will finish the evening on a sweet note. (Just don’t tell them how easy this is to make!)
  4. Tablecloths can dress up even the most ho-hum of picnic tables. We love the layered look of this table, featured on 100 Layer Cake. To get this look, we suggest mixing patterns with our tablecloths and runners.
