Activities for the Youngsters
Keeping the kids entertained is important if you want everyone to have the best time possible. If space permits, consider renting a bounce house. If you have a pool, pump up the floats. At a minimum, have games and balls ready to go!
Solidify the Menu
Burgers and dogs are the easy items to remember. Don't forget sides like corn, pasta salad, and chips. An assortment of drinks will ensure that there is something for everyone. Condiments, ice, and paperware are easily forgotten...so don't!
Is It a Potluck?
Make sure guests confirm the items that they plan to bring at least 2 weeks in advance. A second reminder a week out might be needed for those forgetful friends.
Scrub the Bathroom
Your guests will probably spend most of the time outdoors, but nature calls! Stock up on bathroom towels and toilet paper.
Put out the furniture and make sure the grill has plenty of has for the whole day. Do you have enough chairs for everyone? Is there a table fore prepared food? You didn't forget to mow the lawn, did you?
This is something that is easily overlooked. If you are expecting a large group, make sure there is ample space for cars or a plan for carpooling.
Do you have a killer playlist keyed up yet? Are the beers on ice and steaks marinating? It's showtime, good luck and have fun!
