Even though summer is one of my busiest time of year, we love to take time and enjoy the outdoors and entertain friends and family. Having an area to sit and relax is essential to having a great gathering. Recently I was given the opportunity to check out the Outdoor Living Department at Kmart and purchase some essential gear, a NEW Kenmore 4-burner grill and Essential Garden Newbury 5-piece Dining Set. I will have to say I’ve always been impressed by how much variety Kmart carries in store so it was a great opportunity to compare and find just the right gear for my family.
Not every party has to be a blowout, some of our most enjoyable evenings are spent visiting with our kids. It’s great to get them outside away from the TV and video games. A simple dinner setting is all that’s needed to get the dinner going. A couple of colorful plates, a contrasting napkin and a cool beverage. And of course you’ve got to have the food…
Inspired by Super Summer Outdoor Party Menu from Party Bluprints,
Bacon Mushroom Swiss, Southwestern and BBQ Western
And of course, dessert! Liz wouldn’t let me host a party without adding some dessert. Similiar to the Grilled Pound Cake a la mode that Party Bluprints shared, these Triple Berry Shortcakes are simple and delicious. And no Outdoor Summer Party would be complete without S’Mores, and these made with Peanut Butter Cookies have ooey, gooey goodness!
