There’s no time like the present to organize a fun night of grilling seafood and ribs with special friends. With the right ingredients and a little planning, your evening is bound to be memorable. Start the evening by preparing a delicious marinade for your meat and seafood – try something a little spicy, or go mild if that’s your thing. This blog will show you how to organize tonight’s event.
1) From Pool to Fire:
Arranging a pool party with a bonfire next door can only result in an eventful night. Set up an area with streamers, umbrellas, lounge chairs, maybe a blanket or two. Get some lanterns ready and be sure you have a comfy setting at the campfire after dinner. Let everybody arrive costumed ready to dive in, after which the mocktails will be served.
2) What to Drink and Chew:
While enjoying the crystal clear blue pool time to bring out the snacks and mocktails. Introducing blue, yellow, green and pink mocktails to kick off the evening. Fruit kebabs, cocktail sausages, dips for dipping fresh vegetable sticks just to offset the guilt, and plenty of chips are a must.
3) Seafood to Rib, White to Red:
After the pool and snacks it is time for the ultimate grilling on the road. Turn on the coals, or gas burner, and let the marinated beef begin to sizzle! Make sure you have a number of options for everybody to select from – easy grilled fish filletlobster in the shell, ribs, filets dipped in red wine, chicken wings, seafood kebabs… the probabilities are endless.
Let everybody choose what they like and begin marinating the food a few hours beforehand. There’s no end to what you can prepare. Don’t forget about some delicious accompaniments like grilled corn with garlic butter, vegetable skewers with bell peppers and onions, potato wedges with BBQ sauce – your guests will thank you for these delicious treats.
4) Sweet treat to end the night:
When the night sky has taken over, light the candle lanterns on the tables around the pool area. Prepare an ice cream stand with spoons of varied flavors for everybody to do the laps before ending their night with a bang! Fireworks in the shape of a crescendo will seal the deal as you end the night and let everybody go home with a memorable experience.
5) Prepare the Blades:
The best way to end an evening with friends is to set up a poolside bar area with mocktails, margaritas and beers. Everyone can grab whatever suits their taste and watch as night falls around them. This is the time when everybody can start gathering around the fire and enjoying conversation while munching on their food. What’s more romantic than watching the sunset in a friendly atmosphere? So set up your bar, and when the moon rises, you will have a night full of laughter, fun, food and drink!
6) Fun time, laugh time:
Gather around a campfire and be sure you have plenty of music to keep everybody entertained. Prepare some funny games and roll out some marshmallows to roast over the fire! This is a perfect time to engage with your friends and create lasting memories that will stay with them eternally. Take this opportunity to introduce yourself, share stories, and trade jokes. Let the laughter spread throughout the night as you enjoy one another’s company in a relaxed atmosphere.
7) Time to End:
After the night is over, it is time to start cleaning and end your night. Make sure you have enough trash bags and have designated people to clean up the mess. Get rid of all the decorations, fold the chairs and tables, move the pool furniture back into place… do whatever it takes for a fast cleaning operation.
