The Sainsbury’s birthday BBQ

Hip, hip, hooray!

May marks 149 years since our very first Sainsbury’s store opened and to celebrate our birthday month, we thought what better way than with a proper British barbecue? Even if it’s not your birthday, this line-up should inspire you to get the charcoal out because who really needs an excuse to celebrate summer?

We’re celebrating our birthday with heaps of colour: rainbow brights and all. Bunting instantly revives a bare fence and a few colourful plates will distract everyone from your not-so-new garden table. When it comes to serving, get your guests to help themselves with drinks buckets, tins of cutlery and caddies for all the condiments. We love relaxed vibes that also mean we can put our feet back for the afternoon.

Every summer BBQ needs a little spot where you can relax. Try a few cushions at the bottom of the garden to create a chill out zone or jazz up your garden bench with some soft touches and a couple of fairy lights. And this is the prime position for the photobooth and music speakers too – away from the food and the dance floor.

The entertainment

When it comes to entertainment, normally a few bevvies and some good tunes will suffice. But before you whack out the ballads, get everyone involved in a good old-fashioned garden game. We’ve given the bat and ball a retro revival in fresh shades for summer that’ll look great on the Insta feed too. We promise, everyone will love a nostalgic game of rounders before the burgers are ready.
