Back Yard BBQ |

With outdoor entertaining season coming up I thought I would post a few photos from a 'green theme' birthday party BBQ I had last year for my husband's birthday.

I hope there are a few photos that spark some inspiration for your outdoor event this summer.

  Green Theme! Green lanterns, table cloths, place mats, pillows, napkins, cutlery, plates, food, drink etc.

Lanterns left over from my wedding and a table runner I made with outdoor fabric.

Green and white food covers for all our munchies!

I made green straw flags with everyone's name on them (so they could easily identify their drink) - you can order custom straw flags for your event from me HERE and I got green stripe paper straws from Hey Yo Yo!

Green Punch and Pop choices.


My husband is a healthy eater and doesn't like sweets so I made him a cake made of fruit (not to be mistaken for a 'fruit cake' hehe) I also made another 'garden theme' cake for a friend whose birthday was close to our BBQ.

I also made these fun BBQ theme cupcakes. I used orange sprinkles to look like fire, black icing gel for the grill lines and cup up jube jube, hot tamales and caramels for the meat and skewers.

I forgot to take a photo of my veggie and fruit trays - but I did ALL GREEN veggies and fruit on each tray.
Veg: Green pepper, celery, broccoli, cucumbers, snow peas.
Fruit: Green apple slices, kiwi, green grapes, honeydew mellon

I made green outdoor pillows for our Muskoka chairs to make them even more comfy!

I gave my husband a Birch Tree for our back yard as his gift!

We played Ladder Ball and Bocce Ball & had a bonfire & fireworks!

Sophie is all tired our from too much partying!

Happy BBQ and outdoor entertaining season!
