Take yourself back to a time when life was simpler. A time when wireless devices didn’t yet exist and weekends were meant for chillaxing. A time when children played on a tire swing hung from a tree while adults gathered in a neighborhood backyard for a casual afternoon of food, fun and conversation.
Hosting a retro-themed BBQ is a great way to get together with family and friends for a relaxing afternoon. A few vintage touches set the scene, while recipes from decades past provide a simple summer menu for feeding the masses. This is one backyard BBQ your friends will not want to miss.
