Pulling off a BBQ in the Rain
A beautiful day is a standard must for any BBQ, but, let’s be honest, unless you get memos direct from Mother Nature, it’s impossible to predict the weather, specially if your BBQ is scheduled 3 weeks in advance. The good news is, despite what you might think, grey skies can bring their own version of sunshine to your outdoor party.
First of all, if you don’t have an open terrace, you definitely want to get a tent for your party. The tighter space will also force everyone to get cozy even the wallflowers! Another bonus with hosting a party in less-than-ideal weather is that it keeps all the nosy neighbours and passersby indoors, affording you and your guests more privacy to enjoy your hot dogs and burgers.
Create the Perfect Ambience
Sure, it might be a little tougher to get into a festive mood, but get creative! There are several ways to create a warm atmosphere without the sunshine. If you’re hosting an evening BBQ, consider decorating your tent with light strings, or having a candle on each table. Need more ideas? There are some useful websites packed with helpful tips (many of them easy to do yourself).
You’ll want to turn up the party music. And why not an outdoor projector, if you’re so inclined? Keep activities versatile and adaptable to inclement weather.
So, if the skies aren’t looking too promising, you can still pull off a great BBQ. All you need is some creativity and some Roma sausages and burgers to create an unforgettable evening for your guests and their tastebuds!
We dare you to try it at least once this summer.
