Get Ready for Summer with these 13 Backyard BBQ Essentials

by on Jun 9, 2015

Tis the season for dining outside.  But, let’s break away from the classic red and white gingham and try a new, more modern color palette. I’ve found 13 Backyard BBQ Essentials that are sure to refresh your look.  Subtle color and retro shapes will keep your loving these items for years to come.  

Many items used for barbecuing are shown.

Metal Chairs // Edison Bulb String Lights

Blue Retro Cooler // Green Grill

Ice Cream Maker // Faux Leather Pouf

I love to mix and match patterns.  By keeping a lot of the bigger pieces solid colors, it’s easy to add a little pattern with the table linens and dishes.  I love these black and white dot dishes, any color napkin can be added to the table to change the look.  

A group of kitchen items, like dishes, drinking glasses, a blue bowl and napkin

Melamine Dishes // Tablecloth

Buffalo Check Blanket // Drink Dispenser

Blue Melamine Bowl

Acrylic Glasses // Food Tent

Now, let’s fire up the grill and have some friends over.  Is there anything better then a relaxed evening spent outside with good food, drinks and friends?

    The link for the drink dispenser is wrong; it leads to the chairs. I’d love to know where the drink dispenser is from.
