Hosting a party? Love casual get-togethers? Check out my 3 easy appetizers ideas for summer parties and upgrade your summer!
We’re hitting the 80’s & 90’s this weekend to kick off the summer, and I know we’ll spend all day outside. With tons of kids in the neighborhood, the best way to catch up with friends and family is to have a low-key BBQ and just relax.
I know a lot of busy parents hesitate to invite people over when they tied down by sports schedules, housework, or running after little ones. But I promise you, it’s possible to keep it casual & easy, even effortless if you have the right set-up.
I love to set-up a simple drinks station, with a pitcher of iced tea or lemonade, plus cups and fun garnishes to add some festive touches. Then I’ll set up a few simple appetizers that I know are crowd-pleasers. There’re a few items from Walmart that I stock up on for weekend events during the summer. I keep these products on hand for quick (and tasty!) snacks to serve friends and family.
3 Easy Appetizers Ideas for Summer Parties:
Blue Diamond Gourmet Garlic, Herb, and Olive Oil Almonds— these are delicious! Chef-inspired seasonings top high quality Nonpareil almonds, and are perfect alone or paired with other yummy snacks, like on a cheese board. Sometimes I put out small bowls of these, and other times I serve them with fresh fruit and veggies for snacking.
Blue Diamond Almond Nut-Thins Original— these are made with Real Blue Diamond® Almonds and no artificial flavors. I love to snack on them alone (as do my kiddos!) but they’re also tasty with any kind of dip or paired with gourmet cheese. YUM.
Sabra Roasted Red Pepper Hummus— my absolute favorite variety of Sabra Hummus. It’s just the right amount of spicy, and so flavorful. It’s a great dip to enjoy outside or on-the-go (it’s picnic staple for us) and pairs deliciously with the Blue Diamond Almond Nut-Thins Original. We’ve also served it with chicken wings and cut-up veggies. So good.
