5 Things to do before hosting your first BBQ
It's always a good time for a good old-fashioned BBQ! But if it's your first time hosting one, it can be a bit intimidating. Don't worry, with a little planning and organisation, you'll be well on your way to hosting a successful BBQ.
Find members on Vevivo: The first step in hosting a BBQ is to find people to join you! It is simple, just create an activity through Vevivo for your BBQ.
Plan the menu: The first step in organizing a BBQ is to plan the menu. Consider the preferences and dietary restrictions of your guests, and try to have a good balance of proteins, vegetables, and sides. Don't be afraid to get creative and try out new recipes!
Gather your equipment: Make a list of all the equipment you'll need for the BBQ, including a grill, utensils, serving dishes, and any other special items you'll need for your menu. Don't have a grill? No problem! You can also cook your BBQ items on a stovetop or in the oven.
Set the scene: The ambiance is just as important as the food at a BBQ. Set the scene with some colorful decorations, fun music, and comfortable seating for your guests. Don't forget the sunscreen and bug spray!
Prepare ahead of time: To make the actual BBQ as stress-free as possible, try to prepare as much as you can ahead of time. Marinate your meats, chop your vegetables, and make any sides or desserts the day before. That way, all you have to do on the day of the BBQ is fire up the grill and enjoy the company of your guests.
So go ahead and host your own BBQ! It's a fun and enjoyable way to connect with like-minded people. You can create your own BBQ chat and stay in touch with your friends (new or old) on Vevivo!
