We are here!! The official kick off of summer!! Smoking grill, succulent steaks, buttered corn, all sorts of colorful desserts, the list goes on! I’ll be doing a 3 part Mini Series to help you get some great ideas for your Cookout (click Here if you missed the Main Dishes post and Here if you missed Desserts post)! Today’s will be the Decorations and Games of your BBQ. What’s a get together with friends without a wee bit of fun right?

This will be a good thing for the kids to do after eating a yummy meal! You could have them running around doing this while you are prepping dessert.
2. Patriotic Lollipop Centerpiece
Found from Glue Sticks Blog
This is so simple and so cute!! I Love this! It could also double as dessert later 😉
3. Lace and Ribbon Flag

I LOVE this!! How pretty!! Simple and probably something that the kids can get in on.
4. Bandana Tablecloth

Super simple and easy to do. You can find the bandanas at Walmart for $1.

6. Fun Grab Bags
Found from Eighteen 25
Everyone enjoys a fabulous grab bag! These are so cute and don’t break the budget.

I feel like Bingo is a HUGE crowd pleaser. You can come up with some cute prizes or something like a pie in the face, The possibilities are endless.
