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. Lowes has a huge selection of grills available, and DealDash often has Lowes gift cards up for auction. Be sure that your grill is in good shape and ready to party!

Happy Memorial Day from DealDash

Happy Memorial Day everyone! DealDash would like to take a moment to thank all of our service members, present and past, and wish everyone a wonderful day.

In case you weren’t aware, Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the United States for remembering the people who died while serving in the country’s armed forces: Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and the Coast Guard.  Memorial Day is observed every year on the last Monday of May. Normally people think of Memorial Day as the kickoff to the summer season, though technically this year the first day of summer is June 20th.

Memorial Day is not the same as Veteran’s Day; Veteran’s Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans, and Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving our country. Veteran’s Day is celebrated on November 11th. Both are very important patriotic holidays that can serve as great learning experiences for children and can encourage them into learning more about our nation’s history.

Memorial Day is celebrated in a variety of ways; typically there are parades, people visit the graves of family members or even strangers who served in the military, there are picnics, and of course everyone’s favorite – BBQs!
