One day. One short day! Those are the words I imagine are doing roller coaster loops in Kate Middleton's mind right about now. She is set to marry His Royal Highness Prince William of Wales on Friday morning, making her the luckiest girl in the world, I'm pretty sure. If anyone is livin' the dream right now, it is most definitely Kate Middleton.
The wedding of the century is just mere days away! Don’t fret because you can’t be at the actual event in London, sitting next the Queen herself. With the convenience of modern technology, the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton is coming to your very own living room. Invite over some of your closest girlfriends and host your very own viewing party. It’s easier than you think!
Decorating for parties, even simple backyard barbecues, really sets the tone for the celebration!
Add a festive vibe or fun theme to your decorations to wow your guests and transform your barbecue party into something special. Keep the decorations low-key for a simple, casual gathering or go all-out for a special occasion, such as a birthday party or wedding reception.
Although streamers, noisemakers and party hats are a bit passe when it comes to parties, they have not completely gone the way of the dodo. When decorating for a party, look to the party's purpose, the guest of honor or the season for inspiration. Decorations do not need to be over the top to make an impact. Simple touches are all that you need to make the celebration successful.
Despite what they want you to think, children enjoy keeping busy. The trick is to plan activities that are engaging and age-appropriate. Look to the party's theme, the season or upcoming holidays for inspiration. When all else fails, revert to classic games like tag, three-legged races or an egg toss. The children will thank you for it.
If you want to have people talking about your amazing barbecue-themed party for months after it happens, you need to wrap the entire theme around a single concept. Beyond the obvious, which is to serve great food, you can also incorporate costumes, games and decorations that will provide a party your friends and family will still be raving about long after the warm summer has ended. Putting it all together won't be difficult if you focus on staying organized.
Hosting a BBQ is a great way to gather together your family in a celebration of the warm weather and provide a setting in which they can catch up on each others' lives.
To make your family BBQ one to remember, integrate some fun and uncommon features into the gathering. These simple additions can give your potentially bland event a kick of pizazz:

Games bring cousins and distant relatives together at a family reunion. For your next reunion, stick with games that force people to interact and make use of the outdoors. You may want to plan a few classic icebreakers as well so that people who haven't seen each other in years can become reacquainted.
Plan a Halloween party that your guests won't soon forget. A great party is more than simply having enough food and drinks for your guests. A great party has the right atmosphere and a certain something that sets it apart from the rest, such as an interesting or unusual theme or a custom cocktail.
When you are decorating for a party, don't forget the ceiling. A decorated ceiling envelopes your guests in your theme. Let your guests step into a new world with hanging, bouncing decorations overhead. If you can reach your ceiling with a step stool or small ladder, you can decorate it with any theme you want. Grab a friend to help you when hanging items. Let her hand you each item while you hang it so you don't have to worry about reaching or stretching from the ladder.
