The best part of summer is hanging out in the backyard, eating good food and having fun with friends! We wanted to throw a party and invite some friends over for a good time and a bunch of fun, so we came up with this S’more Fun Backyard BBQ featuring all sorts of fun like a kabob bar, s’mores mini pies and s’mores themed minute to win it games!
How fun is this gingham pattern?! We used chalkboard buckets for all of our kabob toppings…they are adorable!
We decided to have our guests build their own kabobs. We had all of the meat and vegetables for people to built their perfect kabob. We also served several sauces-Thai peanut, garlic butter, BBQ, and teriyaki. Our guests could mix and match until they were stuffed! This was such a fun way to serve dinner…everyone gathered around the table and grill making their kabobs. It ended up being such a fun, social way to serve dinner…we would highly recommend it!!
We displayed a cute menu telling our friends what food we were serving. Want to do this too?
We also had premade fruit kabobs which turned out amazing and added such a brightness to the table. A little trick with these kabobs is to add aluminum foil to bucket about half way up. This allows your kabob stick to have something to stick in and the kabobs will stand straight up.
We wanted to keep the drinks simple, so we served them out of this black bucket. We made sure to provide everyone with their drink of choice. Get your free printable sign here:
Because dinner was such a hit and we all ate a little too much, we needed some time before we headed straight to dessert, so we invited all of the kiddos to play some fun s’mores minute to win it games. The kids loved these games and continued to make up more variations of the games after we were done directing it. Get all the details on these games here.
Dessert time…and can you say YUMMY?! We served Mini S’mores Pies for dessert and they were a HIT! Grab the recipe here.
Because it’s always fun to leave a party with a little something to remember the occasion, we came up with these S’mores Kabobs. We dipped large marshmallows in chocolate and rolled them in crushed graham crackers…those became our toppers. We also added brownie bites, Rice Krispy treats, and a regular marshmallows. We put them in a cellophane bag, tied it with a cute ribbon, and added a fun free printable tag! Get your free printable tag here:
