PRO SUMMER GRILLING TIPS

 

 

 

 

USE CRAFT PAPER FOR A TABLE CLOTH INSTEAD OF A PLASTIC ONE FROM

THE PARTY STORE. PUT OUT CRAYONS SO GUESTS CAN DRAW ON IT.

 

 

 

 

 

LABEL YOUR GUESTS’ CUPS SO THEY DON’T HAVE TO KEEP GETTING A

NEW ONE.

 

 

 

 

 

KEEP IT REAL. REAL PLATES AND SILVERWARE CREATE LESS MESS

BECAUSE GUESTS TEND TO USE AND REUSE THEM INSTEAD OF TAKING

MULTIPLE PLATES AND TOSSING THEM.

 

 

 

 

 

ONLY OPEN SO MANY CHIPS AND CRACKERS AT A TIME TO AVOID

THROWING OUT MOUNTAINS OF STALE ONES LATER.

 

 

 

 

 

SEND SOME FOOD HOME WITH GUESTS SO EVERYONE CAN ENJOY THE

LEFTOVER PARTY BOUNTY.
