Hello August – Time For a Summer Party!

DealDash

Happy August everyone! Get the grill ready, it’s time for a summer party!

I hate to say it, but it seems like the summer is just slipping away so quickly. Here it is, already August! I hope that you have your family has been enjoying the summer so far. There’s still a third of the summer left to go, let’s have a summer party! Get out the lawn games, BBQ grill, and iced tea. DealDash can help with the supplies. Read on for more tips on how to make your summer party a success.

Start the Party Preparations

Unless you entertain regularly, you’ll need to get some supplies for your party. Depending on the number of guests, you might have to stock up on some of the basics, such as paper plates and napkins. There are also questions that you’ll want to ask yourself such as “Is there enough seating for everyone?” and “How am I going to make sure that my guests are going to have a good time?”

You might want to start with making a list of the guests that you plan on inviting. After you have completed that you can decide if you need to get out the extra folding chairs for the patio or deck, or if you need to buy a few outdoor toys for younger guests. Because let’s face it, spending $5 buying a large ball and $1 buying some bubbles is an excellent investment to make so you don’t have to hear “I’m borrrrrred!”

What Are You Going to Serve?

Hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill are a must unless of course, you’re a vegetarian. Then I suppose you would be serving Boca Burgers and veggie dogs, instead! Other than the grilling basics, you need to decide what else you’ll be serving, and if you’ll be making it yourself, buying it prepared, or trying to convince your Aunt Sue to make her potato salad. Once you’ve decided the menu and if you’ll be preparing it, then it’s time to make a shopping list.

Be Sure the Grill is Ready

If you’ve been using your grill all summer long, then you probably don’t have to worry about this item too much. It would be wise of you to check the amount of gas or charcoal that you have left, though, because it certainly would be disappointing to run out during your party.

If your grill has seen better days, don’t fret! DealDash has a selection of grills up for auction, as well as hardware store gift cards if you don’t see the model that you want.

  1. Yep I agree summer is almost over and I myself am enjoying my time at home and work just the same. I am even enjoying the auctions. Landed some great deals. My real enjoyment comes from binning all the gift cards I can for the winter. It takes a real skill when it come to losing those auctions against bidders that do nothing but hog them all. Love the challenge though. Sometimes I play just to practice my skills against them. I never mind buying them, As it helps me to prepare for the holidays. Bid on anything from food to gas cards. You know they like to team up when you make em mad. So be prepared for the binning of your purchases. Wish everyone luck with their end of summer grilling. I sure would like to win some Omaha Steaks or gift cards for them. Some good eating on the grill then. Hope you had as nice a day as I have Dawn.

    1. Thanks so much for reading and writing in, Phyllis! I agree with you on the gift cards – I honestly never expect to win them, so I only bid on ones I will BIN. The Dunkin’ Donut ones are my favorite, my husband goes there every morning before work so they are really handy to have. I’m glad to see someone else preparing for the holidays, but it makes things so much nicer when you don’t have to rush around to find presents for everyone. Have a great weekend! -Dawn
