Use This Checklist to Organize a Fun Outdoor Party

Invite guests two weeks ahead. Advise them what to bring, and ask about their food allergies. Include an RSVP.

Streamers, colorful tablecloths and other decorations enliven the party. A theme helps to guide decorating.

Garden lights, lanterns and candles create evening atmosphere. Ensure that guests are not isolated by darkness and can maneuver safely.

Dot the area with citronella candles to discourage flying bugs.

Remove breakables and safety hazards for children.

In case of rain, set up an awning or prepare space in the garage or house.

Clean and test the grill. Have a full tank of propane or a good supply of wood chips or charcoal.

Ready the grilling and serving tools. If dinner is potluck, gather enough dishes to keep foods hot or cold as required and to keep out bugs. Supply disposable place settings, trash bags, drink coolers and ice.

If you’re making the main course, do more than one. Popular staples include steak, chicken, fish and grilled vegetables, along with hotdogs and hamburgers for children.

Stock basic condiments, e.g., BBQ sauce, ketchup, mustard, onions, pickles, lettuce, tomatoes, mayonnaise, buns, butter, salt and pepper and lemons.

Have plenty of snack foods, such as chips and veggies, lots of drinking water and a variety of mixes for alcohol.

Organize games for children and grown-ups. Popular activities include swimming, horseshoes, croquet, volleyball, badminton, contests, live music and, after dark, outdoor movies.
