Food - No backyard party is complete without the quintessential backyard BBQ foods: hamburgers and hot dogs. Whether you have cheeseburgers, cheese dogs, or brats is up to you, but you can NOT have a proper summer party without firing up the grill! Whether you're throwing a huge party, or a small gathering for friends, these staples will be well appreciated be everyone in attendance, but make sure to have plenty of condiments and toppings on hand to suit the tastes of everyone invited!

Games - After you finish eating, you need some games on hand for entertainment. A great option for some friendly competition is corn hole. This easy to learn game offers a relaxing pastime for some, or fierce competition for others, but it's fun that the whole party can enjoy! Setting up a quick tournament is a great way to involve everyone at the party, and offers entertainment for people waiting their turn to play. Other great games include bocce ball, washers, or horseshoes.
