With summer and Memorial Day just around the corner, we know we can’t wait for BBQ season to officially begin. Here are some tips from Closet and Storage Concepts that will help you have the best BBQ ever.
Create Your Space
A place to gather is one key element for any successful BBQ! While summer parties are often associated with backyards and outdoor areas, don’t forget to tidy up inside as well. Key areas to consider are the bathroom, entryway, and living areas, in case the party heads inside due to weather or at the close of the night. Getting your bathroom and entryway cleaned and organized will help you feel good about your home throughout the year.
Now we’re ready to head outdoors. Consider sprucing up your patio, as many times this area becomes the center of any party, especially during grilling season! Be sure you have enough gas or charcoal, depending on the type of grill you have, and make sure to give it a good clean. Consider organizing the area around your grill by creating a designated station for all your tools, and a separate place for all the finished food. This will help to keep your food clean, and allow you to enjoy the party even if you’re busy manning the grill.
A BBQ is not a party without the food! To help ensure that your party goes off without a hitch, make sure your pantry is up to the task. Dust off your signature rub, and purge any old or expired ingredients. While you’re cleaning out your pantry, be sure to organize your items so you’ll be ready to go for the rest of the year, rather than simply stuffing everything you decide to keep back into your pantry. Your home will be cleaner and you’ll be ready for your BBQ with all the right spices. Consider re-arranging your kitchen’s pots, pans, and other tools to increase your productivity levels in the kitchen, or call Closet and Storage Concepts to help you create a custom storage solution!
Summer is all about relaxation and fun. Let your music show that, whether it’s a fun throwback of 90s hits or a nostalgic disco playlist! Music is a great way to create the ambience you want and will help you feel at ease. It’s the perfect way to settle into your perfect summer BBQ!
