Summer Backyard Bash!
It's 5PM. That gorgeous time of day we’ve been dreaming of since we dragged ourselves away from our OTP (our bed, obvs). Switch that brain off and strut those tired legs (summer bod in progress) – and start party prepping. First stop, BBQ shopping: LOTS of munchies. The fairy lights are hanging, the music's cranked up, and we’re just waiting for the doorbell to ring – Par-TAY! We’re all counting the minutes ‘til the backyard party is a weekday thing, chillin' with the squad, munching on skewers and sipping juicy drinks. When it comes to hosting, your yard should look as FAB as the interior it’s attached to. And so our little socialites, here’s your guide to hosting the ONLY party on the social calendar this year: a perfect backyard bash.
We’ve spotted the sun, peeps: this event's not far off. When it comes to hosting a stellar party, a checklist is a must. Top priority: chairs. We've totally had it with musical chairs at every event, sacrificing our seat every time we make a bathroom run. Put out the chairs and layer them up with dreamy cushions and neon throws. If the temp drops after 11 (YES Mom, we’ll still be out…), you’ll be grateful for these super soft, chic-looking babies.
Next up: snackage. Your friend asks, "should I bring something?" Translation: "you're having 5 kinds of dip, right?" ALWAYS. Chips, dessert and token carrot sticks – done, done and done. Save the strawberries for pretty-looking punch, and pour it into our beautful picnic cups. Smoothies more your thang? Get inspiration from our yummy vid below – we spoil you rotten, right? :-)
And finally: set the scene. If 2017 has taught us anything so far, it’s this: if it wasn't on Snapchat, a party didn’t happen. Make it a setup worth snapping: fairy lights and candles go with dusky evenings like ketchup with a French fry (yep, drooling), so string twinkly lights wherever you can and get candles burning for sweet summer feels.
You got this Primark peeps – you were born to host (well, with a little help from our Homeware section)! With your setup lookin' fly from only $6 (😱) and a BBQ ready to go, all that’s left is to enjoy! P-A-R-T-Y time! (You'll invite us, right?)
