Sunset Sensations

All it takes for a perfect BBQ is a beach, a low table and pillows, and some gorgeous Turkish linens. This set up on the beach is a stunning, yet casual way to have an elegant and tasty BBQ.


Popcorn Lights and Popcorn Flicks

BBQ's seem to go hand in hand with the backyard. Get the backyard BBQ feeling with this lighting that includes a movie. We like the simple white backdrop for the movie along with the glowing lights placed around the seating area.

We've all seen the standard corn hole games for a backyard BBQ. But we like to mix it up with this shuffleboard type set up. While corn hole is fun, it's also now standard. Surprise your guests with games that mix it up.
