Summer Party & BBQ ideas!
1. Create festive party lanterns for any season. Count the bulbs on a strand of holiday lights and cut X's into the bottoms of the same numer of small cups. Then push a bulb through each cup's center and hang the string from a doorway or window. (idea from Real Simple)
2. Grill smores on the BBQ! Get waffle ice cream cones, fill with marshmallows, chocolate chips, bananas, strawberries, or any other thing you can think of, wrap in aluminum foil, and throw on the grill for a few minutes to melt. YUM!! (credit)
3. Make a squirt gun station. It is HOT. And DRY. And if you have kids coming, you need this. Between the BBQ, tiki lamps, fireworks, and the blazing sun, the kiddos (and adults) are sure to get hot. Cool them down and let them have a ton of fun! Simply fill a bucket or cooler with water, grab a 10 pack of squirt guns at the dollar store, and let the good times happen! (via First Home Love Life)
