How to Make Grilled BBQ Chicken Flatbread Pizza {Video} + Free Farmers Market Party Printables

Have you ever tried grilling flatbread directly on the BBQ? There’s something so great about seeing those beautiful grill marks on the bread…especially when you’ve made them yourself!

Grilling flatbread is surprisingly quick to do, but there are definitely a few small-yet-impactful tricks that will make the process a LOT easier – and I’m speaking from personal trial and error here! I recently teamed up with Krusteaz® to create a little video tutorial that highlights some of these helpful flatbread grilling tips, which you can watch below. Pay special attention to the method of oiling the grill and the style of baking pan used to get the dough on and off the grill grates… it’s a life saver. ;)

The video features a Grilled BBQ Chicken Flatbread Pizza using one of the brand new Krusteaz Flatbread Mixes (in the Garlic and Onion flavor), which makes it super easy to whip up the dough. This simple recipe is a tried-and-true favorite in my book, but of course you can change up the toppings on your own grilled flatbread however you like!

Another fun idea for grilling your own flatbread is to set up a little “Flatbread Social” station with all sorts of fresh toppings, then let your dinner guests create their own personal sized flatbread pizzas using their favorite toppings.

And… inspired by this fresh toppings idea, I also designed some Farmer’s Market Inspired Party Printables to go along with it! Scroll down to check them out, along with a few coordinating DIY party ideas like cut burlap “placemats”, kraft bag utensil holders, and a quick & easy veggie centerpiece that packs a very HEALTHY dose of color. ;)

You’ll find the download links for the printables at the bottom of the post, along with info on a Weber Grill Sweepstakes that you won’t want to miss!

Gametime! Twin Boys Football Birthday Party

He’s at the 30…the 20…the 10…TOUCHDOWN!! Valerie Gimre of Charming Touch Parties styled DOUBLE the fun for her “Gametime!” Twin Boys’ Football Birthday Party! The whole day was centered around the big game — Alex’s team vs. Jack’s team in a flag football match. I love that the color palette focuses on the team colors rather than the traditional green & brown, everything would be so cute for a Super Bowl party! I’m sure both teams went home happy with dirt on their knees & cake in their bellies :).

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Chalkboard style, flag decorated printables + matching cookies & ‘penalty flag’ yellow napkins
– Flag topped football textured birthday cakes with frosting laces + Rootbeer floats & caramel corn
– Concessions stand with game day lunches + personalized game day jersey shirts for team & family members
– Floral centerpieces with football paper chain links & team flags in jars filled with color coordinating sand

Playful Puppy and Kitten 2nd Birthday Party

Meow! Woof! All pets are welcome here :). Louisa Kopp from the adorable blog, Ice Cream off Paper Plates, styled this equally adorably Playful Puppy and Kitten 2nd Birthday Party for her son’s big day! Louisa put lots of love into this party, creating all of the food & sweets, the invitation AND just about every bit of decor! Using lots of yarn, newspapers, stamps and other common items was a super clever way for her to get the most out of similar things (i.e. yarn balls, yarn wrapped letters, yarn banners, etc.) and probably stay on budget! That’s what I call the cat’s meow ;).

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– DIY ‘Bow Wow,’ ‘Fancy Feast,’ & ‘Litter Box’ banners + DIY dog & cat plates
– Paw print napkins, picture mats & tent cards + yarn & paw print ’2′ decorated party hats
– Dog collar wrapped drinks, cups & invitation + dog bone decorated tent cards
– Primary colored bday outfit, decor & M&M topped birthday cake + hanging 2s & a puppy piñata
