In Texas, June bugs debut in April and summer begins in May, but June finds its own special niche with backyard BBQ’s and graduation parties. Since this is a month of celebrations, we want to help you be prepared for whatever exciting event you have on the books!
PLAN, PLAN, PLAN
No party is a good party unless there is plenty of good food and great decorations. As you prepare to host out of town family or a couple neighbors, keep in mind that Texas decorations are always in style, especially with July 4th around the corner. We have some food and decoration ideas that are sure to be a hit!
For starters, serve up some recipes from our Cordon Bubba cookbook like Armadillo Eggs in a jalapeno bowl and Spicy Jalapeno Martini’s in good ‘ole Texas mug. Then fire up the grill with some tasty recipes from Texas Barbeque 101 Cookbook. You could even give your SMU, Texas Tech, Texas A&M or University of Texas graduate a collegiate branding iron so he’ll always remember the joys of college life! Don’t forget to grab your cook a Texas Flag apron to make him stand out as the Chef Extraordinaire!
As for decorations, why not serve up some Texas-shaped chips with delicious salsa in this nifty Texas-shaped bowl? You can also spice up the party table with some Texas flag napkins or a centerpiece of Texas Candy that a few lucky guests can take home! And with all this celebrating to do, Texans have more reason than ever to celebrate the state with some personalized Texas goodies! Texas Treats has everything you might be looking for to say “Bon Voyage” to your college-bound kid with a good luck horseshoe or “Thanks a million” to the dads in your life. Whether it’s prepping your graduate for college cooking success, or giving Dad the hint that BBQ season is here, we’ve got what you need to make sure that this summer, the spirit of Texas is hotter than coals in your smoker.
