Summer BBQ Party

I found this great party idea on one of my favorite sites... Hostess Blog

This party is so easy! You set up a "Make your own Hot Dog" station
The best part about the decor is the plastic red picnic table you can buy at the dollar store. You cut it up to embellish everything!

The free printables were found here  you can fill in the blank labels with the free font found here
Also on the same link above you can find recipes for regional hot dogs... like the Texas Chilli Dog and LA West Coast Dog.
The plastic yellow and red baskets are perfect for this theme and are only 3.99 for a set of 6 at Party City.

  1. Hello there! Great idea here. I clicked the link for the hot dog party printables and it took me to the main page - no details there. Any chance I could get another link from you?
