Last Minute BBQ Ideas

So LABOR DAY IS TOMORROW. Which means three things. 1) The summer is basically over - tears. and 2) You should get in all your white wearing now! JK I literally have no idea what that saying means. and 3) BBQ TIME!!!!!!!!!!!! Anyways, if you’re at all like me, you’ve been trying to soak up every last minute of summer possible. So maybe you forgot that you said you’d host the last BBQ of the summer……. Well worry no more, today I have the ultimate last minute BBQ idea guide - my last summer post of the year.


  • Chips + Salsa - Definitely a must for an outdoor BBQ.
  • Veggies + Ranch - To please your more healthy guests veggies and ranch are delicious!
  • Tomato + Mozerella Bites - A little classier but still delicious!

Main Meal:

  • Chicken Kebabs - This is a super simple recipe. Just chop up some red peppers, green peppers and onions and skewer them. Add some chicken pieces with maybe a barbeque sauce marinade on in. Coat the chicken with a little olive oil and then put them on the hot grill. Grill for a few minutes on each side and then they’re ready to eat!
  • Rolls - Pick up some rolls and butter to put on the table for a perfect side.
  • Summer Salad - Throw together some fresh watermelon, feta cheese, arugula, and strawberries for a delicious and refreshing summer salad.


  • Fresh Fruit + Whipped Cream - The perfect dessert for a BBQ - this screams summer and sweetness.
  • ICE CREAM - Another great summer dessert - if there are kids (or just you know regular people) coming a make your own sundae bar is the perfect idea!


  • Lemonade - If you don’t know by now, I am obsessed with lemonade - it’s the perfect mix of sweetness and sourness and a staple at any BBQ!

So these are some of my last minute ideas for a BBQ! Let me know what you think of them and don’t forget to share pics from your party for a chance to be featured on social media!
