The May 2-4 long weekend, the unofficial start of summer is finally here!!! We have been blessed with a beautiful weekend in Southern Ontario… the weather is perfect for a BBQ and some fun in the sun. The long weekend also means our calendar starts getting filled up quickly with many different events from bridal showers and summer vacations to getting together with with friends and family for a BBQ. With everything that we have coming up I am happy that we have a Target Canada right down the road to help with all of our summer entertaining needs.
From road trip essentials like snacks and sun screen you can get everything you need with one stop at Target. We had a family BBQ this weekend and I made a trip down to target beforehand to pick up some things I needed for summer entertaining. Here are some summer entertaining tips to make your gatherings stress free:
- Plastic Makes Perfect – We use plastic dishes and stemware outside all summer long, with kids running around and a stone patio we want to make sure there are no accidents. With the beautiful selection of placticware at Target you will be sure to find something you love. I picked up a new pitcher with a built in ice pack which is perfect for my summer time favourite, Ice Tea! Plus they also have an adorable selection of dishes for kids.
- Accessorize – Add a pop of colour to your outdoor space with a patio rug or pillow. Don’t forget to pick up an umbrella to provide some much needed shade during the hot summer days. Or pick up some outdoor lanterns to light the way into the beautiful summer evenings.
- Good Eats – Food, arguably the most important part of any gathering. Target has a great selection of snacks and easy appetizers, or shop their extensive grocery section to make some tasty treats like the amazingly delectable Honey Graham Crunch Smores Bars (recipes on the blog later this week)
So what about you? Do you have lots of summer entertaining coming up? Target Canada wants to help you with all of your summer entertaining needs.
