Believe it or not, Memorial Day is right around the corner, which means the kickoff of barbeque season! Sunshine, sprinklers, hamburgers, cornhole, rosé… Ah, we’re so close. If you’re planning on throwing a backyard barbeque, you may be a bit out of practice in being a host. After all, it’s been two years since most of us have attended larger gatherings. But as we’ve gotten smarter about finding ways to socialize safely, bring on the BBQ! Here’s what you need to throw the perfect outdoor soirée.
Anthropologie Teak + Mesh Food Covers
Ever go back for seconds, only to realize that the food has been sitting there in the sun and has become one with ants, flies, and other creepy crawlies? Well, these have got you covered — literally. These handy food tents make sure bugs don’t get into your food. The teak bottom gives sturdy surface to set down your platters and the top is made of transparent mesh so you can still see which food is which without having to lift up each tent. The set comes with one small and one large size.

Sunday Riley Light Hearted Broad Spectrum SPF 30
Fun in the sun is an important part of summer, but so is sun protection. While we’d hope your guests are sun-safety minded and may come with their own, being prepared is a great way to show your guests you care. Leave a few bottles of sunscreen around so guests have easy access to protection. This lightweight sunscreen has broad-spectrum SPF 30 and blue light defense to keep sun damage and premature aging at bay.
