BBQ Tips & Tricks to Know!

Do you smell that? Yes, that’s the smell of hotdogs and hamburgers on the grill! Summertime is officially here and what better way to soak up the sunshine than with a barbeque? Known to be a staple of the warmer months, it’s the perfect excuse to have guests over for a one-of-a-kind dinner experience — and we have some helpful tips/tricks to share with you!

Bring out the Water

Sometimes a barbecue can lack the most important of features: bottles of water! If you’re looking for the perfect way to keep your guests cool and hydrated, then it will be best to keep a giant cooler available.

If you don’t have a cooler, then it’s best to take a big, clean flower pot, line the inside with a new garbage bag, throw some ice and water in there, followed by the bottles, and you’re good to go! For maximum cool, store this “beverage center” in a cool part of your yard. This will help keep everyone cool and ready to go!

Provide Some Shade

When it comes to most backyards, sometimes there aren’t enough cool spots to hang out and enjoy your food. If you have a primarily treeless yard, then the best bet will be to obtain some umbrellas.

Not only can you place these little shade providers around your yard, but it will be the perfect way to jazz up your backyard with some summer style!

Of course, umbrellas can be expensive — so the best bet would be to visit the local dollar store; you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how excellent the quality will be of these beautiful little shade casters will do!

Give out Essentials

Fact: sometimes guests will forget to apply sunscreen, bring a hat, or sunglasses. Solution? Create a summer essentials table/bucket for all guests to take what they need.

From bottles of sunscreen to caps from around your home or the dollar store, there is no essential that’s off limits to keep your guests protected from the sun.

If you’re looking for a fun way to keep guests protected, then you can simply create little party favors of these essentials for them to take as they enter your barbeque!

Wedding Gift Ideas for the Couple who has Everything

What’s more frightening than a horror film? Getting a wedding gift for the couple that has everything, of course! Although a registry is usually intact, there is the possibility that you might want to get them something not on their list — and that’s okay! Not sure what to get them, exactly? Take a peek at these great suggestions:

Donate to a Charity

One of the best gifts you can give to newlyweds is donating to a charity of their choice, in their name. This will not only be one of the most personable gifts, but it will be the most memorable for a good cause! From the ASPCA to the Red Cross, there are a series of different charities that you can donate to that will make their big day even more special and help those in need!

Monogrammed Goodies

Another great wedding gift to give is something monogrammed. Believe it or not, monogrammed goods are making a strong comeback and will certainly never go out of style! From champagne flutes to a full bathroom towel set, the possibilities are endless and fun! Additionally, a monogrammed present is unique and can never be duplicated; you won’t have to worry about giving the same gift as another guest!

Personalized Gift Basket

Looking to really wow the newlyweds? Create a personalized gift basket for them! When it comes to giving wedding gifts, nothing is off limits — including this gifting staple! If you’re looking for the best solution, you can provide the couple with some of their favorite necessities! If you want to soar above and beyond, you can include some monogrammed goods in there, too!

Buy an Experience 

Know that the couple’s favorite band is going on tour? If that’s the case, and they’re not already attending, then buy them a ticket to the show! When doing this, you’ll want to pick a venue that’s relatively close to home.

From there, purchase two tickets and contact Dynasty Limousine to transport them to and from the show! Not only will they be treated to quality entertainment, but they’ll feel like royalty when picked up in one of our gorgeous, comfortable limousines!
