It’s summertime and the living sure is easy.
No, the creative minds at work behind the scenes here at Boulevard Café Catering didn’t think up that genius tidbit all by ourselves, but it’s as true today as it was when George and Ira Gershwin penned those words, and as true s the day Ella Fitzgerald sang them.
Summer has the transformative power to wash away all the worries of the workweek, leaving in their stead only the promise of good friends, great craft beer, and even better food as you prepare to host the hottest, hippest Fourth of July / summer BBQ Fairfax has even seen.
Not only does a giant party tent lend an air of importance to any party, but it also means not having to squeeze all of your guests inside your not-so-spacious townhouse in the event of rain. Arrange lounge furniture strategically to encourage mingling and conversation. A few beach balls in the pool say to guests, “Go for a dip!”
Use red and white checked linens, and blue napkins, and bold, bright flatware to befit the occasion. Pick fresh flowers, and tie them in bundles with patriotic ribbon. There’s no touch too small when hosting a festive mid-summer BBQ.
The stage is set, and decorations planned — but what’s a summer party without top-notch food? Nothing, that’s what a summer party is without delicious food prepared by northern Virginia’s go-to event caterer, Boulevard Café Catering.
