Now that your event is equipped with all the best gadgetry to create the perfect outdoor party ambience, let’s talk food and drinks!

I would say as a semi-frequent outdoor partygoer, the most important thing is to keep your guests feeling cool. At least cool enough to want to hangout in your backyard all day! So my first suggestion is having cold and or frozen drinks/smoothies as beverage options (non-alcoholic of course). 

Since your guests now only have one free hand, my next suggestion is having appetizers that can be finger food or can be stuck with a toothpick. These types of appetizers are perfect for parties where people are walking around and visiting with one another. But keep in mind they are usually only big enough for a bite or two, so be sure to make plenty!

To help you get a party menu started I’ve put together my Top 3 outdoor party recipes from our KBA recipe e-book!

All of the recipes below, along with many others, can be found in our FREE Supplement Recipe E-book. Download it today!
