Host your own Barbecue Bonanza

Sunday, August 11th, 2013

Nothing says ‘summer’ quite like sitting around a barbeque, cooking delicious food and enjoying dining al fresco with friends. We’ve put together some of our top barbecue tips so you can enjoy these summer nights as much as possible:

1. Try to vary the usual barbecue food – instead of just burgers and sausages, throw some prawns, salmon and vegetables onto the grill. And, to accompany your feast, whip up some different types of salad – quinoa and roasted vegetables or a light Asian-inspired coleslaw go perfectly with barbecued meats.

2. Don’t be afraid to ask your guests to bring contributions. Barbecuing can often feel like you’re spinning multiple plates at once so don’t be afraid to ask your guests to bring a salad, a selection of breads or some fresh summery desserts to ease the stress.

3. The key to hosting a stress-free gathering, even a casual barbecue, is to know how many people are coming. Send one of our invitation ecards so people can send you a quick reply to let you know whether or not they’re able to make it.

4. There’s nothing quite like the feeling of sitting around a gently smoking barbecue well into the evening and talking with friends as the sun goes down. Try to have a couple of blankets to hand in case people get chilly – you don’t want to have to cut the party short!

Most importantly, enjoy it!

Feel the love

Monday, August 5th, 2013

Who said you should only show your love on Valentine’s Day? Whilst we’re certainly fans of being extra full of love on February 14th, love is a 365 days a year deal which is why we have created these ‘I love you’ ecards.

Telling someone you love them ‘just because’ is sure to make their day and, even if your beloved lives on the other side of the world, you can still let them know how you feel in an instance.

Say ‘thank you’ to your guests

Thursday, August 1st, 2013

It’s the middle of wedding season and so much work goes into planning a wedding that when the big day is over, it can be hard for the brides and grooms to know what to do next (after the honeymoon of course)! Saying ‘thank you’ to all the guests that made their wedding day special is usually one of the first jobs the newlyweds face.
