Next Monday is bank holiday and there’s not another until August, so make the most of it! It’s not too late to plan an incredible BBQ to kick off the summer in style. You don’t need us to tell you that you need burgers and a barbecue to get things going, so this blog post is about how to take a basic BBQ and make it a sensational summer party. After all, nobody wants to be handing out Pimm’s in a mug because you’ve ran out of glassware. The best parties are in the planning!
A barbecue isn’t just burgers and hotdogs, it’s salad, burger buns, condiments and accompaniments. If you want to put on a spread that’ll make you the first choice for summer soirees, you’ll need some serious serveware.
Introducing… the Bamboo Lazy Susan; the rotating serving board made for hungry hands to grab from every angle. With a little terracotta bowl and a hexagonal board, it’s great for everything from breads and dip to cheese and crackers. We also have a set of 3 Serving Boards in a matching hexagonal bamboo. They look great together and would create a definite theme on your dining table.
And when it comes to plating up, don’t risk your kitchen crockery getting broken! Our picnic sets include melamine plates and stainless steel cutlery all wrapped up in one neat little storage bag.
As we said, nobody wants their Pimm’s and lemonade in a mug. Luckily, VonShef has designed shatterproof glassware perfect for outdoor use. Our Brushed Gold Wine Glasses and Stemless Glasses are made from stainless steel that won’t smash and will even keep your drink chilled for a little longer than standard glass or plastic – not to mention the fact that they look great too!
And as for what your guests will fill their glasses with, the 3 Tier Drinks Dispenser takes care of everything so you don’t have to worry about topping up glasses all day. With three tiers, you can mix up some delicious punch or fruit juice to keep everyone happy.
One of the hardest things to get right is how much food to make. There’s always someone who wants 10 burgers just for them. How are you supposed to account for that? Well, with a back-up indoor grill, you can expand your cooking capacity. You can cook more food in emergencies, or take care of the meat on the garden grill and cook your vegetables inside. It’s great for those times you end up catering for unexpected guests that didn’t tell you they were coming.
The Smokeless Grill and 1100W Grill & Griddle offer the additional cooking surfaces to make your next summer shindig a huge success. And if you want to tenderise meat and remove unwanted fat during cooking, the Cast Iron Meat Press will do just that.
