For this month's Michaels Makers challenge - we celebrated with a barbecue birthday dinner.
Happy Birthday balloons (available in store) add a fun, easy decoration.
Tablecloth was an easy DIY!
Glassware all available at Michaels. Copper stand was a DIY. We made lemonade with fresh lemons, mint from our yard (love the flavor that it adds!), Agave and Stevia.
Adding a simple tag with an initial makes it easy keep track of your drink.
Chicken and veggie kabobs were a favorite of the night - we marinated the chicken in honey mustard marinade and brushed it with barbecue while grilling. They were really good!
We used our outdoor console table as a buffet. Garden roses and glassware make the perfect floral - I love how the variety of glasses provide interest.
I ran out of time - so I grabbed a fruit tart from the store. Don't feel bad about picking up a few pre made things - it will give you more time to enjoy your guests!
From glassware, lighting, paper crafts and pre made decorations - Michaels has just about anything that you could want to get ready for your summer gatherings! Putting a little extra effort in will make your event extra memorable.
