Unfortunately, the weather wasn't as good as it had been, so we did what we could and spent the majority of the evening just inside with the patio doors open so we could still get that BBQ smell!
I spent all day getting the house together and making it all look pretty!
I pinched my ditsy floral bunting from my spare room to decorate the dining room!
Pretty flowers from the garden!
produce tray as I thought it would be handy for carrying things around etc and then finally - picked up these very cute little milk bottles - I have wanted them for so long and figured, as we had the BBQ going, I would make one of my favourite milkshakes - toasted marshmallow & nutella - absolute heaven!
Although the weather wasn't great, we still had a lovely evening with lots of scrummy food!
I decided to go for some mini burgers-I always find there's so much food at BBQ's so wanted to keep it to little bits of lots of things! Hot dogs (standard) and the made some BBQ pulled pork and some make-your-own chicken skewers - I know how fussy I am with vegetables etc so decided to leave it to the girls to choose exactly what they'd like! All in all, I think the evening was a great success - we were absolutely stuffed and laughed lots - exactly what I needed!
