Hello sunshine, bye bye overpriced entrees. 'Tis the season to stop hosting expensive indoor parties and take it to the backyard. Try hosting a themed party for your guests. Just make sure your theme is simple and can be pulled off with class, as if we need to remind our readers, avoiding anything too over the top. A great beginner party is a good old fashioned barbecue. This can work well for rehearsal dinners, birthday parties, family gatherings, or company picnics.
