As the bank holiday approaches, many of us are looking forward to spending time with family and friends and enjoying some delicious food.

1. Choose a Theme: Having a themed BBQ is a fun way to make your bank holiday BBQ stand out. You could choose a specific cuisine to base your menu around, like Texas BBQ or Korean BBQ. Or, you could opt for a fun and festive theme like a Sport Themed BBQ or a beach party.

2. Plan Your Menu: A great BBQ always starts with great food. Plan your menu well in advance and consider offering a variety of dishes to suit all tastes. You could serve up classic BBQ fare like burgers and hot dogs, or get more adventurous with dishes like grilled seafood or vegetable kebabs.

3. Set the Scene: Creating a welcoming and festive atmosphere is key to making your bank holiday BBQ memorable. Decorate your outdoor space with fun and colorful decorations like bunting, balloons, and lanterns. Consider setting up comfortable seating areas for your guests, and don't forget to provide plenty of shade if it's a sunny day.
