Summer BBQ Ideas #SummerParties #Decorations #BabyShower #BIrthdayPartySummer is a special time of year where outdoor events and casual atmospheres are the perfect accompaniment to sunshine and clear blue skies. You can easily host a summer party with a burger and brat buffet in your backyard or at your park pavilion - either way you choose, your guests will come ready to enjoy good company and the beautiful weather.

To host the perfect summer barbecue buffet, plan ahead and make sure you receive all of your RSVPs. Brats and burgers cook best when they are thawed all the way so you will want to purchase your meats a day or two ahead of time and keep them in the refrigerator to thaw if they are frozen.

TIP: Make the hamburger patties ahead of time and separate with wax paper for no muss, no fuss party day.

Be sure to have enough buns for your grillables - and maybe a few extra. One is sure to hit the floor at some point during the party. Personalized circle labels and tooth picks make easy decorations for your bun selection and dress up your buffet table. Learn how here.

Add your favorite condiments, some chips and dip, Little Cowboy themed party ware and a personalized party favor for each guest to top off your party preparations. A few more key decorations such as bandannas and mason jars bring this summer BBQ to life - and make you a Hostess Hero.

BONUS: Learn how to make these fun paper rosettes here.
