Backyard BBQ with Cricut. Over the last several weeks, I have had the pleasure of joining the Cricut Party Blogger Kick Off Campaign. So many amazing party bloggers have used their Cricuts to create amazing parties. This is the final week, and it is all about family celebrations. We love summer bbq’s, the more often we can cook outside, the better! Bonus for having friends and family join for a day of fun and food! And, if you follow my blog, at all, you know I can rarely go a week with out using my Cricut for a party or event! Be sure to read to the end to enter to win your own Cricut Explore Air 2! Of course our BBQ was set up in our new outdoor party space. You guys, I cannot even begin to tell you how happy I am that we built this space for our family. It has been amazing! We have spent nearly every night out there enjoying the yard as a family. We have even made several new backyard games. A new favorite is ring toss. I used my vintage style Coca Cola crate from Crates and Pallet, empty glass Coke bottles, and SHOWER RINGS…yes, a $1 package of shower rings! So fun, right?! And EASY!!
I love classic Americana style. Rustic, old wood smell, rusty old metal, worn paint…everything my outdoor space is. So, for this BBQ, I wanted to use classic Americana decor. Summer time screams red gingham to me, so I grabbed a few gingham table cloths and started working. Obviously, red was my primary color, so embellished my vintage milk cooler and picnic caddy with my Cricut and red Cricut vinyl. I also added some blue Cricut iron on vinyl to some gingham can koozies from the Target Dollar Spot. I really, REALLY wanted red gingham pennant bunting…but, what seems to be true to my life right now, I didn’t decide until I had to have it until it was too late to order any. So, I asked my Cricut friends how to cut fabric, and I went to JoAnn’s and bought a few yards of red gingham fabric and some fusible iron on backing. I applied the backing to the fabric, and then I cut pennants with my Cricut, not gonna lie, I said a few choice words, but overall, this.is.a.party.gamechanger! I need to learn a few things before I will use this feature all the time, but, y’all, I made a party bunting!
I also saw a funny saying online, and thought it would be perfect for my grill master and our new party space. (I will share the step out for that this week) I grabbed an inexpensive t-shirt from Target and a few pieces of vinyl and made my hubby a shirt. It would be perfect for Father’s Day too, I think.We kept the food relatively simple; chicken and beef kabobs (we made them early), chips, Coca Cola, s’mores and snow cones. It was the perfect way to spend a summer afternoon and evening! We all had a great time, playing back yard games, eating too much delicious food, and talking late into the night!
