Practical tips for the BBQ

Picture the scene; the sun is shining, the BBQ is in full swing, the children are playing. All of a sudden, the previously angelic kids are now running around screaming, a wasp has landed in their drink. To make matters worse, the condiments are now warm from the sun and the bowls of snacks have been spilt. These little nightmares can be a thing of the past with our handy BBQ ideas below…

DIY cup cases

Tears over thirsty flies and wasps in the kid’s drinks can be a thing of the past with these cute and super thrifty muffin cup cases! Take a large muffin case and simply punch a hole in the middle, large enough to fit a straw. Next, get your muffin case and pop on top of the cup, wrap your hands around it so it moulds around the shape of the cup. Pop a coloured straw through and voila; say goodbye to bugs whilst keeping track of drinks!

Popcorn bags

Popcorn, puffed crisps, sweets – instead of serving them in bowls, why not pick up a few cute paper bags to store treats for the kids? Take it step further and personalise each bag for the little by creating bespoke name tags and securing with a paper clip.

Why not mix it up and create cones too?

Upcycling a cutlery caddy

Warm condiments served with your BBQ aren’t ideal – whether you’re serving up mayonnaise or adding the dressing to your salad, they need to be fresh to taste great and keep longer. You want your guests to help themselves so keeping them in the fridge isn’t an option. So what can you do? Cutlery caddies are the perfect solution for carrying condiments around easily! Wash a used caddy out, fill with ice and pop your favourite condiments in – hey presto; cool, portable condiments!
