5 Ways to Throw the Best Cook out

EC809912-banner7

An article written by guest contributor, Brian Rees

Many people throw out parties once a month for various reasons to see their friends and relatives. Almost all people arrange at least one party every three months, whether it be a birthday party, feast, anniversary, etc. Many people are unsure how to run a great party in the home without spending too much money. Some have a misconception that parties can only be conducted in hotels or special halls. But, it is always better to conduct small parties in the home. There are few tips on how to arrange a good party and throw the best cookout for your guests.

Decorate the Home for the Cookout

Decorating the home for a party is the initial step. Focus on the theme of the party and try to hang up decorations reflecting it. Children’s birthdays and other celebrations can have rich colors for the decorations, whereas for adults, celebrations can be in lighter color decorations. Evening parties can be decorated with lighting, and daytime parties can focus on natural vegetation like flowers. The party area should be decided in advance before starting the decorations, as it will be the focal point of decorations.

Choose the Best Place for Cookout

Choosing the cookout location should be after careful consideration as it should serve the purpose of easy accessibility to other parts of the property, including the area dedicated for serving. The most obvious location is around the barbecue grill or outdoor kitchen, but other good places could be the decks of swimming pools or courtyardsas all of these can be used effectively with space, and guests can enjoy the evening.

Decide What to be Served

Perhaps most important, as ultimately the food will determine the satisfactory level of your guests. It is not always easy to fill everyone’s specific dietary needs; however, your best effort should always be given. List the total number of guests and try to know their preferences if possible. If you know vegetarians or vegans, try to pick up veggie friendly options to throw on the grill.

Arrange the area for the Cookout

When arranging the cookout area, the total number guests should be considered first. Set up the area with outdoor chairs and tables without making the area seem too crowded. Also, ensure enough supply of plates, bowls, forks, and knives. If required, separate areas can be arranged for children and adults. Also,music is a great way to create a welcoming ambiance for a cookout.The food should be properly arranged in a corner, to ensure free access for the guests.

Some Cooking Tips

When serving meat for a cookout, hamburgers and hot dogs are always safe choices. Both are popular and less expensive than other meats. No matter what you serve, it’s always important to remember to give your meat a good flavor.Also, arrange some side dishes for guests like potato salad, corn, coleslaw, and vegetables. Dessert can be anything from ice cream, cookies, pies, or cakes. Be sure to have plenty to drink! Water bottles, canned soda, and possibly alcohol, are great for the guests.

Galaxy Outdoor just finished up on this amazing and contemporary custom outdoor kitchen out in The Ridges of Las Vegas, Nevada. We worked on this project with Blaser Construction and their architect by the name of Mark Lemoine. This build was astonishing and the finished custom home is gorgeous. Our part in the build was to construct the outdoor kitchen area for this modern masterpiece. Below you’ll find images of both the custom home as well as our work in the custom outdoor kitchen area. We’ve also included a video production below that shows the entire home. Feel free to view and let us know what you think.

The Blaser Construction team and architect Mark Lemoine did an amazing job and we’d just like to give them full credit on the actual construction of the home.

2016 Projected Home Improvement Projections

Alfresco Custom Outdoor Kitchen with Accessories

Alfresco Custom Outdoor Kitchen with Accessories

The extended easing of gains in residential improvement spending is expected to change course by early next year, according to the Leading Indicator of Remodeling Activity (LIRA) released today by the Remodeling Futures Program at the Joint Center for Housing Studies of Harvard University. The LIRA projects that annual spending growth for home improvements will accelerate to 4.0 percent by the first quarter of 2016.

“A major driver of the anticipated growth in remodeling spending is the recent pick up in home sales activity,” says Chris Herbert, managing director of the Joint Center. “Recent homebuyers typically spend about a third more on home improvements than non-movers, even after controlling for any age or income differences, so increasing sales this year should translate to stronger improvement spending gains next year.”

“Other signals of strengthening remodeling activity include sustained growth in retail sales of home improvement products and ongoing gains in house prices across much of the country,” says Abbe Will, a research analyst in the Remodeling Futures Program at the Joint Center. “Rising home prices means rising home equity, which should encourage improvement spending by a growing number of owners.”

The Leading Indicator of Remodeling Activity (LIRA) is designed to estimate national homeowner spending on improvements for the current quarter and subsequent three quarters. The indicator, measured as an annual rate-of-change of its components, provides a short-term outlook of homeowner remodeling activity and is intended to help identify future turning points in the business cycle of the home improvement industry.
