This sizzling SUMMER GRILLING BBQ PARTY was submitted by Flavia Bonfadini of Fete a Fete.

This is such an awesome summer bbq.  I love the three separate tables featuring drinks, food, and dessert. I also love the cute polka dot pattern used throughout the party spread. This bbq has some really cute ideas you could use for any summer party.

My favorite Summer Grilling party ideas and elements from this summer soiree are:

  • The adorable sorbets
  • The little mason drinking jars with matching tops and straw labels
  • The wooden serving trays
  • The fun labels in the fruit bowls
  • The awesome bbq party sign made out of wire mesh
  • The “bar” letters
  • and MORE!

Party Details:

This is what Flavia said about planning the party-

“The colors, the sounds and the smells of summer inspired me to create this party décor. I wanted something simple, casual and inviting, but also festive and with a mod flair.
I brought the indoors out by utilizing some colorful household furniture and paired it with white serving pieces and other rustic elements.

I kept the food to a few basic and classic grilling staples and “dressed” them in a bit more exciting way: the grilled corn on the cob gained a drizzle of cilantro-lime butter, a seasonal grilled salad was sprinkled with grilled polenta “croutons” and the plank-smoked chicken skewers got a nice coat of a homemade smokey barbecue dry rub. For dessert, 4 different flavors of refreshing fruit sorbet to choose from – mango, raspberry, lemon and blood orange. We also had ripe watermelon served on popsicle sticks – a whimsical and practical way to serve them up that was a big hit among the kids.

We also had a “caipirinha” bar (or caipifruta station) where guests could mix their own drinks. Caipirinha is a typical Brazilian drink made with only a few ingredients but with endless possibilities of flavors. I cut fresh mangoes, kiwifruits, limes, lemons, raspberries and lychees and arranged them in separate matching-color bowls, along with demerara sugar and crushed ice. I like to make my caipirinhas with raw sugar, since it gives the drink a more complex and sophisticated depth of flavor. Besides cachaça, which is the traditional liquor used to make this drink, I also had available bottles of sake, rum, vodka and tequila, so guests could use the fruit-liquor combination of their choice.

Using baker’s twine, I tied together a mesquite grill plank and a metal tin containing my homemade dry rub so guests could replicate the main dish at home.”
