Get Your GRILL On! {Summer Grilling Party Theme}

Summer is pretty much synonymous with firing up the grill at backyard get-togethers around here – it’s one of my very favorite things about this time of year!

That’s why I was really excited when Hebrew National asked us to partner with them on a new Summer Grilling Party theme to compliment their “Better-Than-A-Hotdog Hotdogs“… what a great excuse to dream up some fun new outdoor party ideas that can be put to good use this summer – starting this weekend with Memorial Day!

Hebrew National hot dogs are made with premium cuts of 100% Kosher beef with No Fillers, No By-Products, No Artificial Flavors, and No Colors.

And because one good thing deserves another, I wanted to make sure that this new Summer Grilling Party theme came packed with lots of perfect-for-summer printables that you can download for FREE right here, as well as outdoor party ideas that are both creative and approachable. For example, DIY “Mini Charcoal Grill” centerpieces, refreshing popsicle cocktails, super easy s’mores cupcakes, & an all-decked-out hot dog bar!

CLICK HERE to check out the entire party theme editorial style, or browse the Summer Grilling Party album in our social site. I hope you’re able to use some of these ideas at your own summer celebrations this year — whether it’s a graduation party, birthday party or a just-for-fun get together with friends & family!

Jen, I was curious if you could tell me what you used as the liner in the berry baskets for the pasta salad?

jenn s. SAYS:

sure! It’s just colored cellophane – you can buy it in rolls (about the size of gift wrap) at places like Michaels or Party City. Lots of colors available :)
