If you feel like your space needs that extra finishing touch in your space, why not look at some tropical decor? Add some fun and whimsical tropical signs or paddleboard signs. Tiki statues and Budhha statues are also a great way to accent your area. If you are looking for a natural type of decor, artificial rocks are perfect for filling up empty spaces in your outdoor area. Tropical decor can also temporarily be used for tropical or beach themed parties.
Attending a tailgate party is one of the best parts of the fall season, coming in second only to the football games themselves. With the thrill of the first weekend of football behind us, now is the time to start planning the parties for the rest of the season. So wether you are planning a shindig for 20 people in the parking lot or simply taking a friend or two to the game this weekend, here are a few quick tips for a happy and safe tailgate party.
A Labor Day party doesn’t have to be a monumental project, costing you an arm and leg and taking up your entire weekend in preparation. You can have guests over with minimal prep, expense and clean up…just follow these few simple rules:
1. POTLUCK. It doesn’t have to be as cheesy as the classroom potlucks you had in elementary school, simply send out an email volunteering your home for a BBQ and have your guests reply back with what they will bring. Tell them you will provide meat and your grill master skills, but explain that they will have to help with the rest of the fixings. In the email thread, instruct your friends and family to hit “reply all” a simple a one word response stating what they will bring. More often than not, people are willing to bring food items and/or beverages to a party rather than hosting one themselves.
Labor Day falls on the first Monday of September and is meant to celebrate all the “workingmen” of America. Over the years, it has taken on a symbolic meaning as the end of summer and is often a call for the BBQ to make its final appearance. Typically seen as the summer send out holiday, Monday is usually the last outdoor cookout of the year; a time for burgers, hotdogs, coleslaw and drinks of all kinds. However, barbecues can often be a source of untold dread for many vegetarians out there. Accusations of eating disorders abound when you grab only macaroni salad, you feel awkward making yourself a condiment sandwich or disrespectful not eating at all. So to all you vegetarians out there, or to people hosting vegetarians, here are 3 BBQ options that won’t require any more effort than the typical burgers or hotdogs already on the grill.
Fourth of July is this Sunday. Even though it seems like we just got done celebrating the beginning of spring and transitioning into the warmer months, the middle of summer is already upon us. Perhaps with all the goings-on of early 2010, you haven’t even realized it’s already the middle of the year. Fourth of July is a three day weekend for most people, and the perfect opportunity to take a second and slow down your faced paced lifestyle with some outdoor activities or parties. Here are some quick ideas for the whole family.
As summer offers us yet another reason to throw a party, Canada Day is tomorrow, July 1st. Invite some people over after work to celebrate the anniversary of the Canadian Confederation in your island-themed oasis and fire up the grill. As there is no one way to observe Canada Day, do as the Canadians do and be original, decentralized and independent. Put that tiki bar to good use and take advantage of the warm summer months in your backyard or on the patio. Bamboo and Tiki’s offers all Canadians and those wishing to celebrate Canada’s history a Happy Canada Day.
We all know that Memorial Day is a wonderful opportunity to catch up with friends and family. The three day weekend allows us that extra time to alleviate the guilt we all feel when we don’t spend enough time with the people we love. There is no better way to gather all our loved ones together than throwing a fabulous party to renew the bonds of friendship. Here are some easy-to-plan party ideas to get your creative juices flowing.
Although we adore our moms all year long, it's almost that time again for that special day where it's all about mom and reminding her how special she is. For this May 9th, we've put together the perfect list of 5 last minute gift ideas for mom.
5) Tasty Arrangements
Rather than opting for flowers which only appeal to our sight and smell senses, consider picking up a delectible Edible Arrangement of fruits, chocolate and many other things delicious. Creatively arranged like a bundle of flowers, you can select the size of arrangement, what types of tasty goodies and the type of vase or container used.
Every industry show, we always do drawings for Tiki statues, gift certificates or our signature Tiki bar. This past Spring Home and Garden show in San Diego, Chuck and Sheri Newton were the lucky winners of our Bamboo Tiki Bar!
Here's what they had to say.
Q: Why did you attend the Home and Garden Show?
A: We had just closed on our new home and we wanted to get some new ideas about what we could do as far as decorating the place. This was the first Home and Garden show we had ever attended.
Just like how many of you probably feel, this year flew right on by. 2009 has been absolutely incredible, from our new website launch, to our new products, wonderful customer feedback and amazing affiliates that we've had the pleasure of working with.
It's that time of year to reflect back and count all of our blessings, so with that, we would like to send our warmest wishes to you and your loved ones this holiday season and thank you for being a part of and supporting Bamboo and Tikis!
