How to Throw a Socially Safe Summer Cookout

How to Throw a Socially Safe Summer Cookout

We’re now in the thick of summer, which means that you might be itching to throw a summer cookout.

We’re now in the thick of summer, which means that you might be itching to throw a summer cookout. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we’re being advised not to host gatherings with a lot of people and be as cautious as possible not to spread our germs. This does not mean you can’t have a summer cookout while still being consciously aware of your actions. Memorial Day might have passed, but that doesn’t mean its too late to fire up the grill. Here are some party supplies and pointers for throwing a socially safe summer cookout!

Plan Your Guest List

While inviting guests, make sure to keep it to only your closest family and friends. This is the safest route you can go with. Keep it about the same as you would with a birthday or graduation party. Ensure that all of the guests you do invite are just as concerned about the potential risk of infection. If your concerns don’t align, it can make the cookout a bit more anxiety-ridden. Making sure every person is on the same page is an excellent first step.

Paper Plates, Napkins, and Cutlery

When you are preparing to grill some cheeseburgers and hotdogs in your backyard or patio, you need to make sure you have a few essential party supplies. You can’t forget the plastic cups, spoons, forks, knives, and plates. You also have got to make sure you have enough napkins, whether made of cloth or paper. Luckily, H.C. Walterhoefer has all of these in stock, so come in now to buy in bulk!

Table Supplies

Besides plates, napkins, and cutlery, you also have to make sure you’ve got everything else for your table setup. This includes placemats, paper towels, and plastic table covers. These will ensure that your tables don’t get too dirty, plus they are easily disposable once everyone leaves. This makes for easier cleaning. H.C. Walterhoefer also carries all of these products.

Sanitary Supplies

After all, it wouldn’t be a summer cookout in the Coronavirus age without some cleaning and sanitation supplies. Consider placing some tissues, hand sanitizer, and disinfectant wipes throughout your cookout so your guests can clean up if they feel a bit dirty. This is a nice gesture for your guests to show that you’re a responsible host during these uncertain times.
