8 Summer BBQ Party Themes To Try
Hey Top Grillers! This one’s for you! For every summer-crazy, grilling connoisseur out there with a taste for panache, our ideas will blow your mind! Spending too much time on just the menu and forgetting about your party’s theme is like serving cake without icing. It just does not sit well with the tongue.
Whether you’re a grill enthusiast or not, it matters how well you can throw a BBQ party if you’ve decided to host one! The summer sun is out, and the steaks aren’t going to cook themselves, so what are we waiting for? Here are some of the top 10 summer BBQ party themes that you can try:
Country Style BBQ
This one’s a classic winner. Going traditional country is the best way to capture the essence of why having a BBQ party in the first place. So, if you pick this theme, think of some classics:
- Chequered picnic napkins and tablecloths.
- Mason Jars
- Some pretty daisy decorations
- Add in some fairy lights and bright bulbs for a night party
When it comes to the menu, the classics make for the best fit. Some hot dogs, corn-on-the-cob, coleslaw salad, macaroni and cheese, or even some apple pie for the old-school American glory.
By The Beach BBQ
Don’t live by the beach but want to crank it up this summer? Bring in the beachy waves and theme to your BBQ party! Get some sand, seashells, wear some wraparounds, and make it one of the best beach BBQs ever! Bring out your seaside decor and add a dash of fun on your invitation cards with some waves and your grill.
Plus, including some fillet fish and grilled lobster can increase your ‘by the beach’ party popularity. Bring out the portable charcoal grill and small electric charcoal burner for some beachy magic.

BBQ + Popcorn Bar
Ever had a fun idea where you could chill, grill, and munch on some popcorn? Popcorn is one underrated delicacy that’s almost in all ways associated with the movies. Well, you could just set up a fun popcorn station at your party and watch the fun explode! Go for as many quirky flavors and make sure your grill tastes just as good to go with it! Make it a fun outdoor camping event even! Just bring out the right equipment, and you’ll have yourself the perfect BBQ + Popcorn.
BBQ + S’Mores Movie Night
Arrange some sleeping bags and get a projector to screen a movie on the wall for this fun movie night BBQ idea! And now, for the fun part, use your charcoal burner and heat some s’mores to add to your grill. The gooey marshmallows and the juicy steaks, coupled with the cocktails, will take away your worries for good! The only other essential for this party to pick the perfect movie.
Might we suggest the excellent Fast & Furious or a nice rom-com set the mood for couples night?
The BBQ x Boho Party
The ultimate fun combination of a barbeque and backyard boho party can rarely go wrong. This unique blend should start from the invitations down to the cutlery and decorations! Get the hippie and boho vibe going with some handmade dreamcatchers, floral cushions, wooden tables, and even some pretty feathers in a jar to add to the ambiance. Your guests will love you for this one in a million blends! Keep the menu light and airy; avoiding too much red meat will be good.
The Iconic Beer + BBQ Theme
Nothing says old school like some good ‘ol ribs and a beer to crank the fun right open! You don’t have to go overboard with this one! Put a beer emoji on your invitation + some grilled steak, and your guests will get the message. They’ll likely be there early for your extra-chilled beer too! You’re in luck if there’s a game show; make it an all-boys BBQ party and enjoy the game with the buds while the sun shines bright!
