This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Summer Grilling at Publix. The opinions and text are all mine.
Are you ready to have a fun party and entertain your friends and neighbors? Look no further than planning a backyard BBQ or a poolside soiree. Celebrating outdoors is the best way to enjoy the season, and I have 6 summer party ideas to help inspire you! Plus, I have a unique spin on traditional hot dogs and a special savings at our local neighborhood supermarket, Publix!
Backyard Party Ideas for Summer
Potluck. Consider hosting a potluck where everyone brings their favorite dish. They can also bring their favorite game! You will end up with a variety of food options with unique games everyone can play together. You can consider grilling up the main entree and encourage guests to bring sides.
BBQ. A summer BBQ is definitely the highlight of a beautiful outdoor party! We prefer BBQs and we stocked up on supplies at our local Publix.
We picked up Sahlen’s Hot Dogs, Arnold® Buns, and Perrier® Carbonated Mineral Water. The Publix Summer Grilling Savings Event can help you stock up for a festive summer party without a lot of fuss. With brands like Sargento® Sliced Natural Cheese along with Morningstar Farms® you will find plenty of things available for your next BBQ that are affordable and can help you save money the more you buy!
Visit the Publix Grilling site from June 15th to July 13th to learn how to save. There are over $19 in savings!
We loved using Sahlen’s Hot Dogs on the grill since they were the perfect size for buns. We created spiral dogs with cheese. Have you ever made them before?
Use a skewer to grill the hot dog and when it is done, you can cut it! Be VERY careful, but a few cuts on the hot dog while it is still on the skewer will make your spiral dog!
From 6/15/19 – 7/13/19 you can get over $19 in savings with participating products at Publix!
Summer Party Ideas
Beach Party. Bring the food to the beach! Many public beaches have grills so you can grill on-the-go. Don’t have a beach nearby? Set up a volleyball net outside! You can also make your own sandbox for little ones too.
Glamping. Do you love to camp? Try glamping! It’s an upgraded camping experience for friends and family. It’s not a primitive campsite…it’s a pretty RV in a state park with electricity! 😉
Backyard Dinner Party. Use a picnic table with linens, citronella candles, and twinkle lights for a unique al fresco experience.
Ice Cream Social. Set up an ice cream buffet bar with sprinkles, fruit, ice cream cones, and toppings. The possibilities are endless!
Summer parties are probably one of the best things about the season. Get creative when you host outdoors and pick a potluck, BBQ, or even a backyard dinner party!
Which party idea do you like best? Have you ever had a spiral dog?
