Have you already thought about how to celebrate Easter Monday this year? The day after Easter Sunday is traditionally a time for a day trip or a barbecue outdoors (and they don’t need to be mutually exclusive!). So it’s the perfect opportunity to start up your old barbecue or try it out if you’ve just bought a new one.

By the way, this is also the best time to buy a Palazzetti bbq, in fact until 30th June you can take advantage of our 2019 barbecue special offer, choosing from many models at a reduced price. Furthermore, if you choose either Gargano 3 or Gallipoli 3 you will also receive a free set of quality stainless steel cooking accessories.

So you have all your equipment, for some cooking ideas you can get some inspiration from our cooking column: what’s missing? Just a few simple ways to welcome your guests with some creative ideas. Here are some suggestions, which you can adapt using your own imagination.

Easter bbq ideas

An effective yet simple way to present cutlery and napkins is to use a simple wicker basket and put them inside paper bags, which will act as dividers.

If you want to personalize your mise en place, to lend a slightly hygge atmosphere to the occasion, then you can use cards, brown food quality paper and kitchen string to obtain a totally coordinated effect.

Another fun idea is to serve burgers and hot dogs, welcoming guests as if they were at a fast food restaurant: place them in attractive baskets, letting your guests choose and serve the sauces themselves. Tip: It’s a good idea to keep your burgers and hot dogs covered up to protect them from insects and the air.

Do you want to make your garden party really colourful? You can set up a lovely picnic area in the garden, delimiting it with lots of balloons. If possible, use the same colours for plates, glasses, napkins and trays. This idea will be very much appreciated by young and old alike!

If your Easter festivities are likely to get underway on Easter Sunday evening or you already know that Easter Monday will be a late night, then why not organize your very own outdoor cinema, so you can enjoy the barbecue in complete relaxation!
