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!

Spooky & Silly Monster Mash Halloween Bash

For our very first Halloween post of the year, we are SUPER excited to showcase one of our own Hostess INK paper collections, “Monster Mash,” as expertly styled into this downright EYE-dorable Halloween Bash by Laura Aguirre of LAURA’S little PARTY!

Halloween is one of our favorite times of year at HWTM, and we are over the (full) moon to see our party designs used in such a fun, creative way! I especially love how Laura incorporated playful googly eyes all over the amazinsweets & treats — they’re always watching. ;)

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Custom monster party crowns & iron-on ‘Monster Mash’ shirts for the kids
– Playful monster silhouettes + super cute (& perfectly coordinating!) monster sugar cookies
– Scrumptious looking candy apples with rhinestone sticks
– Spray painted & glittered mason jars + cool green & orange panted chandelier
– Chocolate eyeballs, white ghost cotton candy, & googly-eyed cake with patterns matching the paper decor
