Is there anything more quintessential summer than hamburgers? How about hosting a backyard burger bash that will be the talk of your social circle. No, I’m not talking about your run-of-the-mill BBQ. Here are a few party ideas to get you inspired…
First thing, get yourself to Target, stat, and pick up a few of these burger inspired items in the Dollar Spot. One Extra Degree planned a whole tailgate party around them. Don’t forget to grab the french fry burger boxes and if you are really lucky, you may even find the cute food skewer toppers.
Get your decorating on with the Burger-N-Fries Collection from Piggy Bank Parties. From a banner to party signs and tags, it has your party table covered.
Set up a burger bar with all the fixings like this one from Hello Patti. Don’t be afraid to mix it up, put out non-traditional toppings like guacamole, salsa, sliced mushrooms and pineapples alongside lettuce, tomato and mayo. Set up a variety of bun and bread options like onion and Kaiser rolls, and of course include the classic white hamburger buns.
Quench your guests’ thirst by setting up spots for lemonade bars. Yes, you will need two because one will be for spiked lemonade; I love this one from My Jean M Blog. Be sure to clearly mark which set up is dry for kids and those driving everyone home.
