Tablescape: Backyard BBQ

It’s not summer unless you host or attend a BBQ or two. I originally created a design board for inspiration for the BBQ I hosted, and now you can see it in reality below. Whether you’re the grill master or simply enjoy chowing down on some hotdogs, you’ll want to have all these items on hand for your next BBQ!

The Setup

This outdoor furniture set is the perfect size, comfortable and looks really high quality. Also, for a couch, two chairs and a coffee table, it is very reasonably priced! I bought the white bench that is behind my table in a pretty gray color to match my previously owned table. But, it arrived in a charcoal black color instead. I am terrible at returning things, so I just decided to have it painted in white.

The Details

I looked so hard to find these adorable mini grill dip bowls or anything similar, but had no luck! I purchased them in the Under $5 aisle at Target, which I think is a highly underrated aisle. I have found so many cute things there!

These pink cocktail napkins were the perfect punch of color to the table. I also placed this baking blanket on top of a simple silver tray to make it more festive. This baking blanket also comes in blue

My mom gifted me this tablecloth at an antique store, but I wanted to share some similar options:


The Bar

I love that you can write on this beverage dispenser! I used an Expo White Board Marker and it worked perfectly.

The Cheese Board

Hosting a gathering outdoors can get quite toasty at times, especially in Texas. I always like to keep a few apps inside for those guests that need a break for some AC or even as a pitstop for guests on their way to the bathroom. I love the simplicity of this round wooden cheeseboard, but I also love that it’s a Lazy Susan! 



Relish today. Ketchup tomorrow!
