Cocktails are a must-have for any summer party and there is hardly ever any leftover by the end of the evening. With this summer set to be scorching hot make some frozen cocktails with a classic selection of drinks. If you are stuck for ideas then a frozen mango daiquiri is a refreshing take on the daiquiri recipe a welcome change from the run of the mill cocktails you may be used to.

Condiments are a large part of any BBQ and everyone has their own favourite. Creating a condiment bar is a different way to display your sauces.  A great way of doing this is by using small metal pots or mason jars. Adding chalkboard stickers will allow you to easily label each pot so that there is no confusion!

People love to use a straw and a great alternative to plastic straws are paper straws. There are so many different patterned straws out there and many of them can be incorporated into themes that you might have for your BBQ. There is never any excuse to reduce your plastic waste!

Creating the perfect atmosphere can make or break a party; one of the best ways you can create an intimate atmosphere for your BBQ would be the use of lighting. As the sun starts to set rustic lanterns and fairy lights will allow you to have a soft glow surrounding your garden, allowing you to have a chilled out evening.
