After the year that was, it’s a great feeling being able to come together and safely welcome those closest to us into our homes to entertain - whether it’s a backyard BBQ, dinner party or cocktail night, however many of us are a little out of practice.
So, we had a chat with renovation, style and home bodies Kyal and Kara about how they entertain at home and what tips they can share to help Aussies host the perfect get together with products from homewares, to wines, snacks, and outdoor furniture, all from Amazon Australia.
First up, Kyal and Kara share their tips on hosting a Great Aussie BBQ. Shop Kyal and Kara's curation of entertaining at home products here
Preparation is key
Make sure your food and drinks are prepped and ready to go before your guests arrive so you can relax and enjoy the afternoon. Things like pre-dicing veggies, marinating your food the night before and getting ice for the esky - these are simple things that can make the afternoon all the more relaxing. And definitely don't forget to check you have enough charcoal, or gas in the bottle! Nothing worse than running out of steam mid-BBQ.
Keep it easy, but make it eco
Rather than risking your expensive crockery, pick up some great, sustainable bamboo outdoor BBQ plates and cutlery - it makes it so easy for clean-up and no one has to worry about broken glass.
Create a play area away from the cooking zone
When hosting a BBQ, it’s important to have a space set up for the kids to play away from the cooking area, so set up a small picnic table and some games, so the kids can host their own mini party.
