We love hot days for several reasons, but a summer barbecue is close to the top of the list! A perfect summer barbecue is a lofty goal. Playing off of our latest post, we wanted to dive into a specific backyard party idea! BBQs in summer just make us feel like kids again. It’s the perfect occasion to throw in a pop of color or playful pattern that may generally be outside your comfort zone yet still barbecue chic.We want to give you the best summer BBQ dinner ideas. This is where La Tavola linen can help! It’s not all about gingham, but we certainly are not mad when it is. No rules apply here… other than a delicious spread.   

Barbecues are great for so many reasons… friends and family together enjoying the sunshine with homemade or catered eats and refreshments. You don’t even have to have a reason to throw a summer BBQ! Whether you want to go bold or just want an accent napkin, La Tavola has you covered!  

Summer BBQ Dinner Ideas

BBQ dinner ideas come in all shapes and sizes just like our La Tavola Linens. You can throw endless parties without ever repeating the same look. Although, we will never judge if that’s your thing ?  There’s no wrong way to throw a BBQ in summer, so

How stunning is this classic tablescape created by Ashville Event Co?! The blue and white mismatched porcelain paired with our Antibes Denim napkin is giving us major elegant vibes. The dark wood farm table adds a casual touch to this inviting setting. This looks amazing against the greenery and subtle floral pops captured by Jen Yuson Photography. Now all we need is a few of our closest friends and nice summer breeze to enjoy this
perfect summer BBQ table setting.

Our 2018 Collection has you covered for a BBQ to envy. You really can’t go wrong with our Jocelyn Black miniature gingham. It is so versatile. For a monochromatic look, pair it with our Prairie Black/Natural Napkin. Although, you could add in a colorful solid or patterned napkin for statement as well. Just because you decide to decorate with gingham for a
summer barbecue does not mean it has to look traditional! Add these warm florals by Nancy Liu Chin for a barbecue later in summer.

Cocktails in the Backyard

A warm breeze on a summer night is always perfectly paired with a chilled cocktail! Throwing a few cocktail tables around your pool, patio or grassy yard is the best recipe for a great party. They are not only meant for your guests to mix and mingle but they are also the perfect accent to any design!

When we think of Summer, we think of all the bright colors and patterns embellished on the patio furniture, umbrellas, and our Milano collection!! Our Milano collection is filled with natural linen fabrics with fun prints and colors. It is perfect for any backyard event!

Oranges, yellows, pinks, and blues are the colors of Summer! We adore our Miranda linen making a depute at this backyard party!

Cocktail tables are a great way to splash some color and fun patterns throughout your backyard. They are great to have for events with multiple guests such as graduation parties and birthday parties.

Backyard Dinner Party Ideas

Coming from wine country, we love to be outdoors! An alfresco dinner and some La Tavola linen go hand in hand like cheese and wine. We take up every opportunity to have some yummy food, great company, and a relaxing ambience!
