Throwing a backyard barbecue can be the centerpiece of a block party. Homeowners and restaurant owners alike can get into the fun, especially since summer is here. Memorial Day marks the beginning of summer in many people’s minds, and since it has already passed, it’s time to fire up the grill.
The Essentials: Plates, Silverware, and Napkins
While you’re getting ready to grill hot dogs and hamburgers on your patio outside your restaurant or grocery store, you will need a few things. You can’t forget the plates, plastic cups, forks, spoons, and knives. Depending on what you’re offering, chopsticks might be appropriate as well, Whatever else you do, don’t overlook the importance of napkins. Eating outside can be messy, and you want to be sure that you have enough napkins, whether they are made of paper or cloth, to go around. Plus, barbecue sauce, no matter the flavor, can be messy, as can other condiments such as ketchup, mustard, and tiger sauce.
Putting Together a Crab Feast
Another option for your summertime cookout is to plan a crab feast. You’ll need mallets and claw crackers along with wet naps to help everyone clean up. Laying down old newspapers on the tables outside and making sure that the pitchers of iced tea and lemonade are in full flow is also a good idea, especially when you are catering such an event. Bibs, paper towels, and seasonings are necessities that you can’t go without if you want to have a real feast.
The Desserts: Snowballs
Even when everyone is almost full, there is still another course to come. While ice cream, cupcakes, and funnel cakes could remind all your guests of the beach, give them something that’s a treat closer to home: the snowball. For these, you will need ice, syrups, and paper cups or bowls. Any leftover spoons from earlier in the meal will come in handy here as well.
